BALLARD WEIGHT LOSS
The Healthy Choice
Our clinic is focused on overall health and lifestyle changes and offers the Ideal Protein weight loss protocol. We have a great community of members and staff that are committed to supporting one another while working on healthier eating habits and successes along the way.
“IT’S NOT ABOUT PERFECT IT’S ABOUT EFFORT. WHEN YOU BRING THAT EFFORT EVERY SINGLE DAY, THAT’S WHERE TRANSFORMATION HAPPENS. THAT IS HOW CHANGE OCCURS.”
At Ideal Weight Loss Ballard, it isn’t all about the weight or weight loss. It is about getting you healthier and happier and feeling good about yourself. Everyone’s reasons for being here are different and we feel privileged to have the opportunity to work with you on your individual journey. There is one commonality however, and that is most everyone recognizes their need for a change. We are here to help you learn what your change may need to be and we ask you to understand that if you are wiling to commit and put in the effort you will see results and we will support you all the way. We pride ourselves on providing a community here in our clinic where not only do you get support from our coaches but from other clients.
Ideal Protein is a medically supervised & coached, four phase, meal replacement program. The first phase is a weight loss phase in which you will be consuming three of our meals a day, we have nearly 80 different delicious foods to choose from! You will also be consuming vegetables and lean protein. When followed properly you are not hungry and have great energy levels! Once you have achieved your goal weight, determined by you and your personal weight loss coach, you will be phased off of the Ideal Protein foods back to whole foods. In Phase 4, which is our maintenance phase, you will still be seen regularly by your weight loss coach to assist you in maintaining your new weight. Visits are at no charge.
I had resolved myself to always just being a fat person. I reached my max weight of 214 pounds, on my 5' 4" frame, in early 2015. As part of my New Year's resolution, I went on a "diet" but dropped less than 10 pounds in 2 months.
I was really discouraged. I knew deep down that I needed to do something different. Ideal Protein was that something.
Flash forward: I started maintenance on January 1, 2016, at 139 pounds! That's a 67 pound weight loss, and 14.2 inches reduction.
IP has changed the way I approach food. It was never a "diet" but a way of life. I love being a size 10, and staying a size 10! I love shopping for new clothes, and getting dressed to go out. I used to spend so much time hiding the fat, but no longer!
I have a much healthier approach to eating and exercise. I am a life-long member of the IP community, and continue to benefit from the support of the Ballard clinic. I go to the clinic to weigh in and check my body fat, and I know that the coaches and the clinic are always there for me.
My experience with Ideal Protein was nothing short of life changing. Within the first month I was able to stop my blood pressure medication. I had been on the verge of having to add another medication but avoided this due to IP. My cholesterol and blood sugar returned to normal as well. I had energy and felt healthy like I had never experienced. I no longer felt vulnerable and anxious knowing that I could die from my weight. I felt young and healthy again. This has been the best decision of my life.
I lost over 100 lbs, was able to buy a whole new wardrobe and enjoyed life again. It is work, but it was work for my health and so worth it.
In one month of being on the Ideal Protein Plan I was off my Acid Reflux and Blood Pressure medications. I have learned to cook, eat, and make better food decisions. I worked with my coach and identified my true weakness and that was sugar and I loved it. This program and the coaching helped me learn what it takes to actually fuel the body and stay satisfied without the carbs and sugar! I travel a lot for work and now travel differently and plan for my meals.
This is not a diet, you must change your life, and change what one programs the mind to eat. I no longer drink a case of Diet Coke a week, or sit down and polish off a whole pizza at one sitting. I am so embarrassed I don’t know how I got to the point I was at. I feel so much better now I cannot tell you.
I still see my Coach and check in periodically and am happy to say I have kept my weight off for the last 3 years! THIS PROGRAM IS THE REAL DEAL!
“My husband and I started Ideal Protein in March of 2017. Both in our 40's, we were unhappy with our weight and had been finding it more difficult to shed those extra pounds. We liked the concept of "gran and go" ... having to put no or very little thought into our breakfast and lunch. It was fun knowing we'd be eating the exact same meals for the first 2 weeks! Each night we'd look at our items for the next day and set them out. We found ourselves checking in with each other during meal times, asking each other how we liked the items. It was comforting to know he'd be eating the same thing for lunch, etc.
We are now in Phase 4, "Maintenance" and haven't gained any weight back! We have found the maintenance phase easy and without a doubt, our new way of life. The coaches were a huge help for us during the process. They were all very supportive, and non-judgmental (if we messed up one week). We found their encouragement and praise during the process comforting. ”

"After having my second child, I realized how important is was to me to be a healthy and active mom. Not just for me, but as an example to my kids. I am so grateful that I found Ideal Protein to help me lose 50 pounds. It's changed how my whole family eats and lives. And it's inspired our family to be much more active. We got rid of our second car and now primarily bike commute. I drop my kids off at day care in our cargo bike, then I bike to work. Repeat on the way home! We have more time to talk, to see the world around us and when we get home, my kids go to their bikes immediately for a ride around the block. This lifestyle change is all thanks to Ideal Protein. I can't recommend the Ballard team enough!"
