Human Physiology of Weight Loss & Health Profile
Presenter: Dr. Franklin Douglis

A basic understanding of human physiology and the Ideal Protein Health Profile is critical to your ability to coach the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol.

In this session you will be trained on the fundamental principles of human physiology that were used to develop the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol. This training will enhance your ability to coach the Protocol and help clients course correct during all the phases of the Protocol.

Beyond Weight Loss: The Science of Protocol Completion Creating Lifelong Clinic/IP Community/Connection
Presenters: Dr. Franklin Douglis and Karen DiBlasio

Why is Ideal Protein better than any other weight loss protocol on the market? The answer is clear: Phases 2 and 3!

Phases 2 and 3 are all about managing weight regain. Phase 2, known as Stabilization, is dynamic! And Phase 3, our Weight Maintenance phase, puts the process into action.

In this session we will review the physiology of Phase 2 and the science behind Pick-A-Team and menu creation. This training includes the science and sequence of the “Troubleshooting Hunger Guide” to enhance your ability to coach the necessary weekly adjustments from initial daily macro targets to a unique daily Macro Code.

The presenter will share with you the founding science of Phase 3 and the ongoing behaviors of lifelong weight maintainers. We’ll explore the art of putting the Phase 3 Ideal Protein difference into practice. We move beyond Teams to understanding Values in order to leave this session with added confidence to coach the Macro Code.

Properly executing the complete Protocol, not just weight loss, will increase client satisfaction, referrals, and engagement with your clinic!

The Triple Win: Maximizing Profitability, Compliance, & Outcomes / Program-based vs. Product-based Pricing Models
Presenters: Andrew Leikvoll and Deb Buchanan

To build strong, sustainable weight management programs, it is necessary that clinics, coaches, and clients must all be set up for success and have aligned interests. We have found the most effective method to do this is by transitioning clinics from a product-based to a program-based pricing model.

Join us to learn why making this transition results in clinics becoming more profitable, coaches focusing on compliant client-centered care, and clients achieving the weight loss outcomes they desire–a concept we call “The Triple Win.” Included is a Q&A with a panel of experienced, successful, program-based clinic owners and managers.

How to Level Up Your Business / Utilizing the Ideal Protein Difference with Phases 1-3 to Acquire, Retain, and Reactivate Clients
Presenters: Deb Buchanan and Andrew Leikvoll

Phase 2: Stabilization is the bridge necessary for sustainable weight management. Identifying your client’s unique Macro Code is a point of differentiation for your clinic, and it plays an integral role in rebalancing the hunger response. Phase 3: Maintenance plays a collective role in modifying eating behaviors and habits that support long-term success.

Join Regional Vice Presidents Deb Buchanan and Andrew Leikvoll to learn how the Protocol innovation of Phases 2 and 3 can increase compliance and drive client loyalty, helping to result in compounded sales and referral generation. Using case study examples with a live panelist, you’ll be provided with actionable strategies, tools, and tactics to level up your business!
