Jennifer Owen

Jennifer Owen

Owner and Certified Ideal Protein Coach & LipoMelt Tech

Jennifer founded Ideal Weight Loss of San Antonio in 2012. She has always had a passion for the health, wellness and skincare industry, so it was only natural for her to share the blessing she found in Ideal Protein.

Her weightloss journey began after marrying and starting a family. Jennifer tried several diets, but nothing motivated her enough to live her ideal life. Losing her Aunt to breast cancer finally jolted her enough to acknowledge that she needed to make big life changes if she wanted to enjoy her children, and some day, her grandchildren.

In just 9 short weeks of starting the protocol, Jennifer had lost 33 pounds and felt AMAZING. She had finally found a lifestyle that taught her how to fuel her body correctly, and was finally living her ideal life she deserved. Jennifer quickly started inspiring family and friends, which blossomed into what Ideal Weight Loss is today. She has helped hundreds of people shed tens of thousands of pounds.

Her passion is helping families eat healthier, feel better and achieve their goals through example and the Ideal Protein protocol.

Carolyn Adelsen

Carolyn Adelsen

Certified Ideal Protein Coach & LipoMelt Tech

Carolyn is the mother of three grown children, and in 2014 was facing her son’s college graduation and wedding in the same week. Imagine the excitement and pride! After shopping for mother-of -the-groom dresses she was in tears. She realized she needed help, something effective enough to produce visible results in 6 weeks. The very next day, a friend shared her Ideal Protein success story with Carolyn.

Seven short weeks before the wedding, Carolyn was introduced to Ideal Protein, and dropped 15 pounds in 6 weeks. She returned her size 12 dress for a size 8! Carolyn continued her Ideal Protein journey for 8 more weeks, for a total weight loss of 35 pounds. She has since kept the weight off, and has developed a passion for clean eating and a healthier lifestyle.

Carolyn not only gained control of her wellness, but also dropped a job that added more stress than joy to her life. She joined our team in 2015, and loves coaching and educating our dieters. She is passionate about brainstorming individual strategies to support their success.

Valorie Hulme

Valorie Hulme

Certified Ideal Protein coach and LipoMelt Tech

Valorie is a fighter and knows true grit. She is also a loving mother and grandmother, and spent the majority of her career as a registered nurse in the Labor and Delivery unit.

In 2013 Valorie won the battle against a life-threatening illness, but she had become extremely sedentary and had gained forty pounds. The added weight also made it difficult to run the halls of L&D because of the pain she was feeling in her knees and feet. This experience sparked a necessity and commitment to lose the weight and adopt a healthier lifestyle.

Valorie was introduced to Jennifer and Ideal Protein in 2014. She loved the ease of the program and the science behind it. It just made sense. With the amazing support of her coach, she lost 43 pounds in 14 weeks! Unlike other diets, she has been able to keep the lost pounds off, and credits the continued coaching and support through the maintenance phase. She has never felt better!

In the Spring of 2017, Valorie joined our team, and loves getting to know her patients and celebrating victories with them. She has a passion to help others realize their goal of feeling better in a happier, healthier lifestyle.
