Healthiness + Ideal Protein

ARC Healthiness – Ideal Protein Overview

What is Ideal Protein?

Ideal Protein is a partial meal replacement for people who want to lose weight with moderate food intervention.

From the very first visit, you will have an ARC physician and a health guide, both specialized in weight loss, on your team. You have weekly visits with your personal health guide and recommended with your ARC physician.

Meal replacements, purchased in advance of weekly visits and picked up at the appointment, are bars, shakes, soups, chips, breakfast, lunch, and dinner meals from a selection of over 50 options. They are used as a main source of nutrition with the addition of one meal, as recommended by your health guide, for approximately 6 months. At approximately 6 months, you work with your healthiness team to incorporate more meals into your diet.

Get access to:

  • Personalized guidance by a team of experienced health professionals
  • Meal replacement products customized for your needs
  • Regular visits with Health Guides and Health Coaches

The Ideal Protein meal replacements are used as a main source of nutrition with the addition of one meal, as recommended by your health guide, for approximately 6 months. At approximately 6 months, you will work with the healthiness team to begin incorporating more normal meals back into your diet.

What to Expect?

  • Weight-loss-related improvements in blood glucose, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels
  • Increased energy and activity
  • After substantial weight loss we have options to assist patients with maintenance like dietitian visits, medications, or further behavior change coaching
  • You will go on total meal replacements, your body will be adjusting to the liquid plan and reach ketosis.
  • Once ketosis is reached, you will begin to lose weight and feel better.
  • You will be monitored by the physician on a monthly basis (if needed) and by the health guide on a weekly basis.

Pricing

  • Meal replacements costs are between $120 – $140 per week
  • Keep in mind this cost replaces most of your food, however, in addition to Ideal Protein products you will eat one meal of 3 -6  ounces of meat or meat substitutes and vegetables per day

Your monthly physician visits are billed out to your insurance plan. You can purchase the meal replacements from your clinic as you need, although we believe purchasing products weekly or monthly make it easier for you. With Ideal Protein, you will also need to purchase the makings for one meal you would normally shop for. Ideal Protein is a moderate intervention as you will be on food product and normal food at the same time, but with commitment and dedication to behavior change, we see lots of improvements in our patient situations.
