Hi, I’m Stefani Markum, a native Texan and I have worked in the healthcare industry since 2014. I am a certified Ideal Protein Health Coach and currently finalizing earning my bachelor’s degree in nutritional sciences at Texas State University. My passion for health & wellness led me to Ideal Weight & Skin, where I’ve worked since 2015. I work with both men and women to achieve their weight loss goals while educating them how to have a healthy lifestyle even after they have reached their goal weight.
I have done the Ideal Protein weight loss program and personally lost 20lbs from following the Ideal Protein protocol and continue to use IP as a weekly supplement. I found the IP program to be extremely, simple to follow, and to be a lifestyle education.
What makes Ideal Protein unique is the effective maintenance lifestyle program known as “phase 4”. This phase has been the key to my success as well as the success of thousands of patients we have helped at IWAS, and millions worldwide to continue their healthy weight after achieving their goal. That’s the difference with IP.
“I have been struggling with my weight my entire adult life and having Hashimoto Hypo-thyroidism and a very sluggish metabolism, it has been next to impossible to lose weight. That is UNTIL I met Dr. Smith thorough BNI and the staff at IWAS. After a consult and going on Facebook to poll my friends (who all highly recommended Ideal Protein too), I decided it was worth a shot. Now, I have been on the program for five months (along with my daughter-in-law) and both of us have taken off 55 pounds so far and we are nearing the half way mark to our original goal. Stefani (our coach) is an Angel and walks the nutrition walk (having lost 40 pounds on the IP program herself) but her nutritional expertise has been THE KEY to our success in staying on the program and maximizing our weight loss. She knows her stuff! Whether you need to loose 5 pounds or 100+ pounds like me, you won’t be disappointed with the Ideal Protein program and the incredible staff at Ideal Weight & Skin. I know other clinics offer Ideal Protein programs but you definitely won’t get half the care and concern you will find here. It’s easy to tell the staff at IWAS is genuine and truly CARES about their patients’ and wants them to succeed. Thank you for giving me back HOPE.” Mary
“IWAS is amazing. I cannot say enough about the staff, especially Stefani. I have lost 22 pounds in 2 months – over Christmas! I am almost halfway to my goal weight. The food is great, but the best part is the education I am getting as I lose the weight. Stefani answers all of my questions, makes great analogies, and is the best support I could have hoped for. I will be able to keep the weight off while on the maintenance plan. I recommend IWAS to one and all!”
“Shared this on Facebook yesterday but wanted to give Ideal Weight & Skin a Happy New Year shoutout! “I can’t let 2017 go without officially saying goodbye to the 50 pounds I’m no longer carrying with me! Do I miss you? NOT ONE BIT! I’ve been hesitant to share this because I’m not good with compliments and lets face it, it’s not the most flattering pic….BUT…..I decided to get brave and post in hopes that it will encourage you as we head into the new year! If this is your goal for 2018, you CAN do this! It is a sacrifice and it isn’t easy….but I promise it is worth it. While I have not yet reached my goal, being healthier has already changed so many things in my life. Thank you Corbin and kids for encouraging me every step of the way and to Stefani Nicole Markum at Ideal Weight and Skin for being the most amazing coach ever! Cant wait to see what this year has in store with all of y’all by my side! Happy New Year Facebook peeps! Bring it 2018!”
