In this episode, Emily breaks down famous weight loss myths and uncovers the truth behind a successful, sustainable lifestyle.
Emily Countryman is the CEO and founder of Ideal Wellness, a Washington State-based chain of weight loss clinics that serve clients in-person locally and across the country virtually. The seed of inspiration was planted in 2011 when Emily set out to lose 15 pounds of pregnancy weight one summer. Figuring that abiding by the expert-recommended “eat less and move more” philosophy would quickly work its magic, Emily was frustrated to end the summer down only three pounds. It wasn’t until Emily discovered nutritional ketosis and figured out macros that she lost 20 pounds in 6 weeks.
Because of her own success, Emily is passionate about educating other women (men too!) on losing weight and maintaining that goal weight. Since opening the doors of Ideal Wellness, Emily’s team has helped thousands of clients lose over one hundred thousand pounds with their 3-part ShiftSetGo program. Ideal Wellness now has 6 locations and is currently growing its virtual weight loss, coaching staff.
Emily has worked in the healthcare industry since 2003 and is determined to make a better future for the next generation, believing that our society can end the obesity pandemic with the right education and information. Emily is a certified weight loss coach and a Board Certified Holistic Health Coach from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
