Weight Loss

Plantation Wellness Center’s Weight Loss Program

We all hear stories about obesity and health risks, and just maybe you’re experiencing it first hand. You’ve heard it before, this product or exercise machine is your easy way out – its your recipe for quick weight loss.  The only catch is that the weight doesn’t stay off long-term!  Weight loss isn’t a switch you flip on and off.  A real lifestyle change requires effort, easy to consume healthy foods, education and support. That is why we chose and use – the Ideal Protein (IP) Weight Loss Protocol. Built on the foundation of a medically designed and developed weight loss protocol, Ideal Protein is a weight loss and lifestyle education organization. Ideal Protein, the Canada-based company, is committed to the four pillars of validated science for safe weight loss, personalized one-on-one coaching and support, dieter empowerment and a healthier lifestyle education so dieters can sustain their results long-term. These four pillars, and the emphasis on the need for lifestyle change to ensure successful weight loss, are at the heart of what makes the protocol unique.

The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol has a distinct beginning, middle, and end that concludes with dieters being empowered to maintain their weight loss long after their goal weight is achieved.  This is accomplished through coaching and education.  In fact our CEO, Randy Bast, was so impressed with the program after losing 60 lbs, that he was motivated to open this Center with his partner, Dr. Nina Coletta, to help others achieve their weight loss goals.

Key Differentiators

There are number of differentiators that distinguish our the IDEAL PROTEIN WEIGHT LOSS PROTOCOL from other diets and weigh loss methods, including:

The Ideal Protein Weight Management program is medically supervised, so our Medical Director is directly involved with any of the medical concerns related to your weight loss. If you are under a physicians care, we will coordinate with your physician to ensure that your medications are adjusted as necessary to keep pace with your weight loss.  It is not uncommon to reduce or eliminate the need for many of the medications associated with being overweight.

You will have a personal nutritional coach from our team that will help keep you on track WEEKLY – keeping you accountable throughout the 4 Phase process and ensuring you have all the support and guidance you need along the way. Other weight loss programs don’t offer you this extra level of support. Having a vested interest in your success, helps prevent you from making unhealthy choices and increases your chances of success.

On a daily basis, you will receive a short video that will educate and enlighten you regarding some aspect of the weight loss program including: the effects of alcohol, eating with others, dealing with hunger, insulin resistance, glutamates, emotional eating, ideal heart rate for weight loss, and many, many more.  Additionally, during your weekly check-ins, your coach will impart to you countless tips for healthy eating and weight loss success.

You will keep a food journal that will facilitate discussions with your coach each week and will facilitate the identification of innocent “cheats” – those mistakes some dieters make that inhibit their successful weight loss.

There are a number of resources including Chef Verati’s book, blog sites and videos that contain a countless recipes that will help improve your weight loss experience and teach you how to eat healthy.

There are a number of support groups on Facebook and one with more than 50,000 active members that share experiences and successes that will inspire and motivate you. Group members share recipes, tips and inspiring stories and photos of their progress, including their struggles.  The “community” feel to the group helps give the dieter the sense of family and support along the way.

Many diets use these unnatural and extreme methods to help you lose weight. With Ideal Protein you will not need these artificial and sometimes dangerous “helpers” to lose weight.

Ideal Protein is our low calorie, low carb, protein based solution to help with weight loss management; plus, it’s medically supervised with a team that’s there to support you each step of the way, watch this quick introduction video!


The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol is a world class low calorie, ketogenic diet designed and developed more than 25 years ago. Our weight loss protocol will put your body into a safe, regulated and monitored state of Ketosis.   Other diets may try to put you into ketosis, but cannot sustain this state for any length of time like the Ideal Protein Protocol.

So, what Is Ketosis and why is it important?  Ketosis simply means that your body is burning its own fat as fuel. The Ideal Protein Protocol with its gourmet foods, drinks, and snacks are very precisely calibrated and balanced to keep your body in the state of ketosis, so the pounds melt away every week.

Ketosis is an extremely healthy state, with many impressive health benefits besides losing weight. While In Ketosis you will experience other benefits, including:

  • Your liver produces ketones, which your brain loves.
  • Ketones give you an elevated mood. You feel up, happy, positive, ready to take on the world.
  • Wonderfully enough, ketones are also a natural appetite suppressant. This is one of the major reasons why you won’t feel hungry on the Ideal Protein Program.

A welcome bonus, improved blood sugar, cholesterol levels, and reduced blood pressure.

The Solution: Plantation Wellness Center’s Ideal Protein

What is Ideal Protein?

The body has three sources of energy from which it draws to meet its metabolic needs:  Carbohydrates, Muscle and Fat.  Chronologically, the body will first draw on its carbohydrate reserves before turning to muscle and fat.  Our scientifically designed protocol is uniquely designed to target fat cells for energy.

During the weight loss phase of our protocol, we limit carbohydrate intake to encourage the body to use its fat stores & muscle components for energy.

By eating high biological protein foods & vegetables, the Ideal Protein protocol helps to support muscle mass while targeting fat cells.  We teach our dieters how to develop smarter eating habits and lifestyle choices so they maintain a stable weight after their weight loss goal is achieved.
