Your Ideal Weight Loss Program...
Because You Deserve It!

Our Clinic

True Weight Loss is Measured by Your Ability to Maintain Results After Dieting…
Did Your Last Diet do that?
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method is a supervised weight loss method with personalized one-on-one weekly coaching support and education. Unlike common dieting, Ideal Protein burns fat while supporting muscle and other lean tissue. Most diets burn muscle along with fat, which leads to post diet weight gain as muscle loss hinders your ability to burn calories.

Additionally, Ideal Protein empowers dieters with the knowledge to develop better eating habits and smarter lifestyle choices by providing an education on the relationship of carbohydrates to insulin production how weight gain occurs, and what to do to avoid it. Our dieters are not left with the “Now what?” question after their excess weight has been lost. But don’t take our word for it…see what our dieters have to say about their Ideal Protein experience…

Anyone can lose weight…learning how to live at a stable weight after dieting should be your ultimate goal. Call today 425-221-3107 and find out how your Ideal Protein Weight Loss coach can teach you how to make smarter lifestyle choices.
You Won’t Believe the Impact You Can Have on Your Own Quality of Life

Wendy Marquez

My weight loss journey started over 15 years ago. Like many I started to see the visual affects of my poor food choices. With 30 lbs. of baby weight still on me I decided that I wanted to do something that would make be feel better about being in my skin. Secondly, I wanted to feel healthier and stronger for my two growing sons. This sparked my love for fitness and I became a certified personal trainer. Upon further discovery, I found out that over 90% of my mother’s family members had died from heart disease or cancer. Exercise and moderate food modifications no longer seemed efficient; I had an underlying pre-disposition to multiple risk factors that exercise alone could not remedy! This journey has led me to Ideal Protein method and I am so thankful for this opportunity to share the best tool in my toolbox…..the method that corrects metabolic damage and changes the relationship you have with food forever!
