I feel like I’ve tried every diet. Will this work for me?

Yes! We have never seen someone who is following our program fail to lose weight. With our scientifically proven method to burn fat while preserving muscle mass, it is possible for you to undo years of cutting calories and yo-yo dieting. With the ongoing, encouraging support from our coaches, you can finally get to that healthy weight you have always wanted—and stay there.

How much will it cost?

Your first visit is $399, which includes your first week of food, your first two months of supplements, and some ancillary items to succeed in our program. After that, the ongoing cost is $99/week, which includes all of your food and coaching. The only additional charge is for essential supplements, which will cost $100 every 60 days.

Once you hit your desired goal, you will transition back to a diet of whole foods, and we will continue to coach you through the “Balanced Year” at no charge. It’s important to note that while helpful, our foods and supplements are not required to be successful at maintaining your new weight.  

Do I need to do the coaching?

Yes, clients have more success when they use our coaches. Each coach brings experience, training, and an element of accountability that makes the program much more effective. We encourage you to try different coaches at our clinics to find the best fit for you. The coaching sessions are part of the program, and we want you to get the best education, support, and results!

Will I be hungry? What will I eat?

While you are in Stage 1 (our weight loss stage), you will be eating three ShiftSetGo meals per day along with lean protein and vegetables. Clients receive an entire list of approved veggies and proteins, making meals and snacks easy. We also offer a growing library of tasty recipes to give you variety and keep you feeling satiated and satisfied.

How does the food taste?

The ShiftSetGo meals, snacks, and shakes are delicious, and our clients love them! With over 70 meal options, ShiftSetGo has something for everyone. From the Chocolate Salted Caramel Pudding & Shake or Homestyle Chicken Soup to our famous Fluffy Nutter Crispy Bars, you’ll find so many favorites it will be hard to choose just one!

How long is the program?

For life! Unlike skin-deep, “bathing-suit-ready” weight loss programs, we are focused on long-term results. As a lifestyle change, our solution is most effective when you continue coaching appointments for ongoing support even after reaching your initial goal. However, the amount of time it takes for you to complete each stage can differ from person to person.

Stage 1, the weight-loss stage, is determined by your individual goals and objectives. Once you have achieved your goals—weight loss, reduction in medication, or just overall health improvements—your coach will help you transition to Stage 2. The focus here is removing ShiftSetGo meals and replacing them with real, whole foods.

Stage 3 is our maintenance stage, and this is for life! Here you will continue to incorporate more and more nutrient-dense, whole foods into your diet. You are encouraged to focus on other lifestyle changes, such as increasing daily movement and prioritizing sleep. You can also continue to support your efforts with ShiftSetGo meals and supplements, although it's not required.

How quickly will I lose weight?

While this varies from person to person, most of our clients lose between 2-5 pounds per week. Depending on your goals, you can expect to be in the weight loss stage for a few weeks to a few months. We are here to help you lose the unwanted fat pounds as quickly as possible and support you in our maintenance stage for lifelong weight maintenance.

How often can I communicate with my coach?

You will have regular, weekly, in-person appointments with your coach. If you need support, advice, or any other help between meetings, you can call/text/email our office, and someone will respond Monday – Friday 8a-6p PST and Saturday 8a-2p PST. Clients also have access to our private Facebook group 24/7.

How much weight can I lose?

How much weight you can lose is incredibly individualized and depends on factors such as your goals, age, gender, stress levels, activity level, and genetics. With that said, we've had clients lose 200+ pounds, with fifty pounds being typical.

Do you have any discounts or referral programs?

Yes! When you refer a friend to Ideal Wellness, you both receive a $50 credit when they start their journey with us. You can also get an additional $50 off your initial appointment (regularly $399) when you attend our virtual workshop.

We also offer reduced rates to start the program for teachers, law enforcement, first responders, medical professionals, CDL drivers, and armed services members. Contact us to see if you qualify.

Is there a cost to restart or transfer to Ideal Wellness if I’ve already started at another clinic?

No! We will never charge you to transfer to our clinic or restart your weight loss journey. As a former Ideal Protein clinic, we take all Ideal Protein transfer clients at no charge. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to be coached by someone that is a perfect fit for them. Because we have more certified coaches than any clinic in the state, we know you will find your ideal match, and that should never cost you more money.

Does this cost the same as 30/10 Weight Loss for Life?

We are about half the cost of 30/10 over ten weeks. If you have done 30/10 in the past, you can start ShiftSetGo at any Ideal Wellness location for no charge. Simply purchase the food and supplements to get started.

I have done Ideal Protein in the past. Is this the same?

In 2019, we transitioned from Ideal Protein to the ShiftSetGo program. This change gave us more program options to fit different lifestyles while making our process more personal. The ShiftSetGo system has more food options, a better maintenance program, fewer supplements to take, better coaching, and better client support and tools.

Is this like the keto diet my friends are doing?

Our program is a nutritional ketosis program that is much more effective than the DIY keto your friends may have done. Our program specifically targets body fat, so you can quickly and effectively burn fat. Unfortunately, many people overeat a particular macro while doing DIY keto, which can cause their weight loss efforts to stall out. 

Our program removes all the guesswork and provides you with an individualized roadmap so that you can focus on losing weight and getting healthier.

I’m allergic to a lot of the ingredients in most packaged foods. Can I come in for weekly coaching and buy my supplemented foods from Costco or Walmart?

We offer a complete weight loss program, which includes the food. Many of our meals work with various food allergies and sensitivities, such as gluten-free, egg-free, whey-free, and soy-free. We also have medical grade weight-loss food with much higher-quality protein than most big box stores offer. To learn more and find out if our foods are a good fit for you, book a free no-obligation consultation with one of our professional coaches!
