Ideal Protein Program: “Ketogenic” Weight Loss Diet in Cedar Park
Thank you for visiting IWAS! I’m Laurette Smith MD, founder and the medical director of the Ideal Weight & Skin clinics (IWAS) in Cedar Park and Georgetown TX.
Many dieters know weight loss is possible with the right motivation and perseverance. However, sticking to a diet and maintaining stable weight is difficult for most. Ideal protein is designed to remedy both of those issues: make efficient weight loss easy to follow and establish healthy habits that lead to lasting results. No calorie counting, group weigh-ins, or heavy gym time required.
Ideal Protein is a high protein low carb weight loss diet. This “Ketogenic Diet” features balanced recipes and personalized nutritional coaching that enables you to eliminate foods that kick your pancreas into overdrive. When your pancreas is overstimulated, it causes an abundance of insulin, which leads to fat storage and obesity.
The Ideal Protein Program at IWAS is overseen by me and my team of certified and top-notch nutritional health coaches. You will have our 100% support and one-on-one health coaching and a healthier lifestyle education in each of the 4 phases of your journey at IWAS.

Actual IWAS Patient Reviews
“IWAS is amazing. I cannot say enough about the staff, especially Stefani I have lost 22 pounds in 2 months – over Christmas! I am now down 65 pounds and almost 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!” Mary
“Ideal Weight and Skin (IWAS) is incredible and the only place I go to for any weight loss and aesthetic services. I lost 50 lbs (went from a 16 to a 2/4) with Ideal Protein under the supervision of Dr. Smith and Tiffany and am now perfecting my image with VanquishMe and Exilis Ultra body contouring treatments. I always feel welcome and know I’m in the best hands! I can not recommend IWAS enough, I highly recommend checking them out. No matter if you’re looking to lose weight, body contouring, hormones, skin, wrinkles or more, they will take care of you!” * Sara
“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 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! Bring it 2018!”
“My Experience With Ideal Weight & Skin Has Been Nothing But Stellar! The Staff Is Amazing And Extremely Supportive! I Have Been On Ideal Protein Since Mid November And Have Lost A Total Of 47lbs… As Of The End Of March 2018! It Is An Extremely Easy Program To Stick To, And I Would Recommend It To Everyone I Know! Dr. Laurette Smith Is The BEST!”
“Highly recommend IWAS! The staff here is incredibly supportive and motivating, they really make you feel like family here. I’m working with LaChanda to meet my weight loss goals through Ideal Protein and I feel so grateful to have such a knowledgeable and genuinely caring coach. I look forward to my appointments each week and have recommended my family and friends here because I know they will be well taken care of and in good hands!”
“The staff at IWAS are wonderful! They truly care about me and the results I obtain. They go out of their way to make sure I am progressing in my treatments.

How does Ideal Protein work?
Ideal Protein brings our relationship with food back to its fundamentals.
First, the body has three sources of energy from which it draws to meet its metabolic needs:
- Protein, and
Chronologically, the body will first draw on its carbohydrate reserve before turning to protein and fat.
Secondly, during the weight loss phases of the the IP Program, we limit carbohydrate intake to encourage your body to turn to its fat, not its muscle for energy. It’s called Ketosis. Where your body starts to use it’s own fat as energy 24/7 and the fat melts away quickly!
Lastly, by introducing the protein foods in your daily eating habits, the IP Program helps to support muscle mass and our nutritional health coaches teach you how to develop smarter eating habits and lifestyle choices, to help maintain your weight after your healthy weight goal is achieved. Other diet programs, you will lose fat and muscle during the diet, so when you stop, you end up gaining sometimes even more weight back – because you lost muscle during your diet. This is why you hear about the ‘Yo-Yo’ diet syndrome.
The IP Program is broken down into Four Phases:
- Phase 1 – 100% Weight Loss Achieved
- Phase 2 – 14 Day Transition off IP foods
- Phase 3 – Pre-Stabilization for Maintenance
- Phase 4 – New LifeStyle Maintenance Program
