The Protocol

There are four phases in the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol. During all four Phases you will receive one-on-one coaching, teaching you how your body gains weight and what you should be eating in order to maintain a balanced weight.

The Team

Dr. Ray Pope

“The best in medical practice is turning to four main criteria. Ideal Protein fits each of these perfectly. This positive trend is called ‘P4 Medicine.’ Predictive, Preventive, Personalized, and Participatory.

We have been waiting a long time for a clinical weight loss program that embodied this concept. Ideal Protein has nailed it! Clients are dropping pounds and inches and succeeding at a level that use to seem impossible.”

Dr. Zach Pope

Dr. Zach Pope is a graduate of the University of Western States College of Chiropractic in Portland, Oregon. During his internship, he enjoyed working with patients at clinics throughout the Portland area, including the West Burnside Clinic (a clinic that provides chiropractic services for Portland’s homeless and under-insured population). During his preceptorship at North Portland Chiropractic Clinic, he was able to put his Spanish language skills to good use, and also gained first-hand experience working with motor vehicle collision victims. He is currently taking postgraduate classes from the Spine Research Institute of San Diego so that he can provide better care for patients with whiplash and other soft tissue injuries.

Dr. Zach and his wife Rachel love living on the pearl of the Pacific Northwest – Camano Island. They enjoy being involved in their church, spending time with family and friends, traveling to warm places, hiking and yoga. Dr. Zach gets stoked when he’s speaking Spanish with friends and patients. He surfs and runs whenever possible.
