Frequently Asked Questions – FAQ

How many pounds will I lose per week?

(*Real numbers based on real people!)

Women lose anywhere between 1.5 - 4 lbs / week; 2 is the average.

Men lose anywhere between 3 - 5 lbs / week; 3.5 is the average.

If they follow the protocol precisely, women easily achieve 3lbs and men 5lbs per week. If they don’t, weight loss will go more slowly.

Our averages are taken directly from the results of our clients at Evolve180.  Besides compliance, other factors such as age, metabolic imbalance (Pre-Diabetes or Type 2 Diabetes) or other health conditions can affect your predicted rate of weight loss.

This is why we ask you to complete a Health Profile in order to give you an individualized quote during your Consultation.

What weight loss protocols do you offer?

Evolve180’s weight loss method is all about customization.  Each client receives a plan individually tailored for them.  So the answer is – we offer as many protocols as we have clients!

With that said, we have several jumping off points to address different needs:  our Flagship Protocol, our Mediterranean Protocol, our Vegetarian Protocol and our Indian Vegetarian (Desi) Protocol.  

Our Consultants can help you choose and customize the best options for you!
Do you provide any food or meals?
Yes! We provide you with 3 - 5 Evolve180 protein foods per day as part of our program.

These typically serve as your breakfast, lunch and 1-2 snacks!  All you add is one serving of your own protein (usually dinner) and a target amount of fresh produce.

This is a huge offset to your monthly grocery and dining out expense. Most clients report that these savings nearly cover the cost to be on the protocol.

Why do I need E180 Protein Foods?

Our protocols are built around our super-absorbable, muscle-protecting E180 protein foods!

To do keto right, you have to do protein right!  But that's harder than it sounds. Not all proteins contain what they claim (a.k.a. protein spiking), and some don't absorb quickly enough to meet the demands of a body in ketosis.

To make sure your body has what it needs to make it safely to goal, we include our delicious, pure, lab-tested protein foods -free of charge.

Does the food cost extra?

No, all the E180 proteins you need are included. 

How much does your program cost?

We offer some of the best pricing in the industry for 1:1 weight loss coaching - especially when you consider we include lifetime maintenance for free!

To receive a personalized quote based on your particular situation, we invite you to fill out a health profile and come in for a complimentary consultation. 

Once we have your particulars, we can give you an informed estimate about how long your journey is likely to take, and what it should cost to reach your goal.

What is Food Peace™?

Food Peace™ is the secret sauce that make our protocols so EASY to stick to!

What if you could diet without feeling hungry? What if you just stopped caring much about food? What if you no longer had any cravings?

These are things our clients experience every day with Evolve180!  We've achieved the perfect balance of nutrients to make Evolve180 the easiest, least hungry, most peaceful weight loss experience you’ve ever had.

You truly have to experience it to believe it. Once you know what it is and WHY it’s happening, you’ll have the ability to utilize the power of Food Peace™ for the rest of your life!

I travel or eat out all the time. Will your program work with my life?


One of the best things about Evolve180 is that each plan can be customized!

We teach you how to flex whichever protocol you've chosen to work with your life! 

Our handy Guide to Eating Out teaches basic substitution and creative ordering techniques.

You can adapt your plan whether you're eating on a plane, train or in your automobile! 

I don’t like vegetables. It’s not even a question. (But really, can I do this program?)

Yes! We have a multitude of tricks up our sleeves to help clients who do not like vegetables. You’ll be surprised!

I have a vacation coming up! The holidays are almost here! Swimsuit season is right around the corner! Should I have started yesterday?

There is NEVER a good time to start a "diet".  If you have a fun life at all, there will always be something coming up involving food, travel, celebration...

So the right time is now. And, if you have a big event coming up, we can help you with a plan to get through it the best way possible.

You deserve a fun life AND a healthy, sustainable body weight! Let us help!

You used to be Ideal Northwest. Why the name change?

Once we discovered that our clients needed different options and more flexibility during their weight loss journey, our identity as an Ideal Protein Clinic no longer fit.

We were growing beyond our roots. We were discovering new ways to support weight loss in general, and our clients in particular.  We were evolving, so we changed our name to reflect that.  To us, the name Evolve180 heralds a brand new era for effective, sustainable weight loss! Read our story >>

How do your prices compare?

Because there are no programs we've found that are truly comparable to ours - meaning they offer the full combination of a protocol that is easy to follow while it rebalances and improves your metabolism, the range of food options that we do, coaches who are experts at customizing a journey just for you, Food Peace, and free maintenance (that you can actually qualify for) for life - price comparisons are difficult. But here's what we can tell you.

Evolve180 generally costs 25-50% less than other weight loss programs that provide most of your meals and are coached by humans (not apps or bots). 

And that point about maintenance is important.  With us, maintenance is included for free - for life - for everyone who loses weight with us! There are no impossible weight loss goals to hit. No gotchas and gimmicks. Just long-term accountability to help you keep the weight you lost off!

But it's important to remember:  If you don't lose the RIGHT weight the RIGHT way, maintenance will be nearly impossible no matter where you go.  You need to protect your vital muscle tissue and metabolic capacity using customized targets for protein, fat and carbohydrates tailored just for you.  Otherwise you'll lose muscle (a common hazard of most diets).  Losing too much muscle = a lower metabolism = less food you can eat to maintain your loss.  We help you lose the right weight, the right way so maintaining your weight loss is easy.

Based on our own research and customer feedback,
it appears the programs you've heard about on the radio run from $250 - $360/week!

Can I use my insurance or my HSA / FSA to cover your program?

Evolve180 is not directly covered under medical insurance.

However, if you have a weight-related medical condition (such as hypertension, heart disease, Type 2 Diabetes, a diagnosis of obesity or a BMI over a certain level), your program costs may be reimbursable through your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA).

Clients frequently use these benefits to cover our services. However, each plan has different requirements, so it's a good idea to check with your plan administrator to see what documentation or referrals you might need for your weight loss journey to qualify for coverage.

Do you offer any specials or discounts?

Yes, we do - mostly as a reward for telling your friends and family about us. Here are the most common:

  • Big Company Discounts – We offer special pricing for employees at Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Concur, Expedia, etc! Contact us for details, and to see if your company is included!
  • Join with a Partner/Friend - each person receives $100 off the program at the time they sign up!
  • Refer Friends and Family - both you and the person you refer receive special rewards!
  • Seasonal and Holiday Specials – we occasionally offer discounts or savings bundles for special occasions. Sign Up For Our Newsletter if you’d like to be notified when these are available!
  • For those who have more to lose, we offer special incentives to help support and sustain the commitment it takes to make it all the way to your healthy body weight. To find out what pricing would look like for you, book a consultation now and talk it over with one of our Consultants.
