How the overall Woman’s Ideal Weight Loss® method works

How Does It Work? 
Woman’s Ideal Weight Loss method utilizes a four-phase protocol.

The dieter stays on Phase 1 until approx 100% of her or his weight-loss is achieved, and moves on to Phase 2 until she or he has achieved their goal. Phase 3 is a 14-day gradual reintroduction of healthy carbohydrates and fats in the morning only, and Phase 4 is the maintenance phase.

During the protocol, dieters will consume Ideal Protein® foods in combination with whole foods (proteins and selected vegetables), limit their fat intake and follow a mandatory supplement regime. Dieters will also limit carbohydrate intake, which forces the body to use its other two resources for energy, stored fat and muscle. With the high biological value of the Ideal Protein foods, dieters will ensure muscle mass is maintained, and burn the stored fat.

On average dieters will lose 2-5 lbs per week. And you can expect more than weight loss.

A dieter will consume (approx.)

  • 3 Ideal Protein foods during Phase 1
  • 2 Ideal Protein foods during Phase 2
  • 1-2 Ideal Protein foods during Phase 3
  • Optional during Phase 4

The protocol must be followed as outlined in order to fully achieve success. A detailed list of permitted/restricted food is clearly identified in the documentation for Phase 1 and 2. A Dieter must commit to completing a weekly food diary, weekly weigh-ins, and consultations with a member of our weight loss team.
