The Protocol

Our medically developed weight loss protocol and smarter lifestyle choices education offers dieters what they really want…a structured program that can put an end to constant dieting.


I spent a year in a half in the gym unsuccessfully trying to lose 15 lbs and was able to do it in 3 weeks at Ideal Weigh.


Increase Your Overall Well Being by Learning Smarter, Sustainable Lifestyle Choices

Dieting Shouldn’t go on Forever

Ideal Protein is a medically developed weight loss method that targets fat loss while supporting lean body mass including muscles, bones and other tissues. Over 20 years of evolution have gone into the 4 phase Ideal Protein Protocol:

  • Phase 1: With the assistance of your weight loss coach (you receive one-on-one weekly coaching), you will follow phase 1 until you have reached 100% of your weight loss goal. 
  • Phase 2: The amount of Ideal Protein foods is reduced to 2 per day. You will only be on phase 2 for a maximum of 2 weeks.
  • Phase 3: Weight loss stabilization. You will re-introduce moderate amounts of healthy fats and carbohydrates to your diet for 14 days (in the morning only). 
  • Phase 4: You will begin applying the smarter eating education taught by your personal weight loss coach. This knowledge will assist you in making smarter lifestyle choices after dieting.

Why 4 phases? Why not stop after weight loss? Anyone can lose weight…learning how you can maintain a stable weight should be your ultimate goal. To achieve your weight loss goals and maintain the results, a weight loss program must empower dieters with the knowledge to develop balanced eating habits and smarter, sustainable lifestyle choices. This is the Ideal Protein difference.

Kaitlin Porter

A lifelong Houstonian, Kaitlin began to gain weight while a student at Texas A&M. After graduating from A&M with a health degree and moving back to Houston, she tried different weight loss plans but none of the plans seemed to resonate for her. Her weight would eventually creep back up. That was until she found Ideal Protein and the great counseling she was provided at Ideal Weigh. Kaitlin was so impressed with the program that she has decided to make the move from not just being a client but also a counselor. As someone that has struggled for some time with her weight, she knows what it is like to struggle with the number on the scale or not fitting into that outfit you so desperately want to wear.

Kaitlin is a great communicator and has a knack of making people feel at ease. When not working, Kaitlin enjoys all the events and culture that Houston has to offer. Although a city girl at heart, Kaitlin started saltwater fishing at age two and is equally happy spending many weekends on the Texas Coast with her family and friends.
