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.

Megan Higgins, Health Coach

I believe that “In life great things, never come from comfort zones.” I
have been a part of Flex Physical Therapy since January of 2016. I started
off as a physical therapy tech, helping patients in the gym and in
September of 2016 I received my certifications with the Ideal Protein
Academy to take over as the head Health Coach for the Ideal Protein weight
loss program.

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 2010 from Grand View
University, during that time I participated in Volleyball and Track. I
enjoy working at Flex because of the people I get to meet. Since taking
over the program in 2016 I have watched numerous dieters start and
successfully complete the program and gain the knowledge and the tools to
maintain a healthy lifestyle. And I learn something new with each person I get the opportunity to coach.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my two boys, Myles and Hank. Working out and staying active. And always taking to opportunity to meet new people, learn something from them and enjoy living life to the fullest.
