-Eric Andreasen, lost 50lbs with Vital Body
Certified Ideal Protein Coach
Gwen grew up on a farm and was strong before it was trendy for women to be strong. She is dedicated to her family and has 2 wonderful daughters and 2 grandchildren. She is part of our virtual coaching team and is delighted to bring her love of being active outdoors – cross-country skiing, hiking and biking. Gwen is trained as a facilitator and has taken many courses on personal development and communication. She understands the power of coaching and having a solid program and support to reach your goals.
Gwen absolutely fell in love with the Ideal Protein Protocol. “I have always been athletic and strong and I have always weighed more than I thought I should for how active I was. Then I did the Ideal Protein protocol and lost 20 lbs and my outside appearance finally matched the way that I’ve always felt on the inside. I couldn’t believe how much lighter I felt (both physically and mentally) and how much easier it was to run and move.”
“I want everyone to feel that ease and connection with their body. I am here to make it possible and easier for you.”

Weight loss and wellness has always been an area of importance to Eimear since most of her closer relatives have dealt with obesity-related issues. For this reason, she shares in the vision of long-term health for dieters at Vital Body.
She enjoys running, exploring the restaurant scene and making new friends as she settles into her new community. You’ll surely recognize Eimear by her lovely Irish accent at your first visit to Vital Body!

Ideal Protein Certified Coach & Clinic Owner
Zan has a Masters Degree from SFU in Health Care and worked in Leadership Development before co-founding Vital Body with Amrita in 2011. In 2015, Zan was recognized by Chatelaine Magazine and ProfitGuide.com as one of Canada’s Top 100 Female Entrepreneurs “Rising Stars”.
Zan lost 50 lbs on the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Program after trying many other diets with zero success. “Sure I felt great doing more yoga and eating a healthy balanced diet, but I never lost any fat.” She went from a size 14 to a size 6 in 5 months in 2011. “I just love that I exercise for fun now, versus for trying to lose weight. It’s such a sense of freedom and peace to be happy in my body.”
Zan spent many years in the personal development field and brings these learnings to her work at Vital Body. Together, the team works to enhance the coaching they provide dieters by addressing the mental and emotional aspects related to holistic weight loss.
In 2019, Zan launched her podcast and website mibo musings. She had been working with this idea for 3 years and was finally ready to make it live. The site is dedicated to tools and resources that focus on the non food aspects of weight loss. Head on over to explore this fabulous gift that Zan offers to the world at no charge.
When she is not at Vital Body, she is spending time with her family on the Sunshine Coast. She loves cooking and doing yoga and listening to the sounds that nature offers. Zan brings love and plenty of laughter to all that she does.
“May everyone be blessed to feel free as a bird in their body and discover and create a peaceful relationship to their body and food.”
