Ideal Protein Weight Loss: The Last Diet You Will Ever Need
IDEAL PROTEIN FAQ’s
WHAT IS IT?
The Ideal Protein Program was developed 25 years ago in France and was brought to the US in 2008. The plan was originally developed to secure the muscle mass of high-performance athletes and regulate their insulin levels. Based on a low fat, low carbohydrate, adequate protein diet
WHY IT WORKS?
This is a 4-stage retraining eating plan that helps stabilize the pancreas and blood sugar levels while burning fat and maintaining muscle and other lean tissue.
This 4-phased plan is for long-term health promotion and weight control, not a “diet” that leaves participants with the “Now what?” question after weight has been lost.
WHO IT’S FOR?
Patient who have as little as 5-10 pounds to lose or 100 pounds to lose
WHO IT’S NOT FOR?
Program is not for patients with:
Severe Kidney Disease, Severe Liver Disease, Congestive Heart Failure , Active Cancer (or in remission less than 3 years), Cardiac/Cardiovascular Event (within the last 6 months), History of unstable Arrhythmia, Parkinson’s Disease
HOW IT WORKS?
The Ideal Protein Plan is nothing like the typical diet that offers packaged foods. Ideal’s instant packets are NOT the common meal replacements that contain a so-called “balance” of carbohydrates, fats and protein. Consuming carbohydrates promotes insulin production thereby promoting fat storage. For a balanced diet, consuming fats is very important, but for FAT LOSS, one must eliminate most fat from the diet for the initial stage of the program. Eating a “balanced diet” prevents the proper set up of the fat loss process in the body. One of the goals of Ideal Protein is to cause the body to delve into its energy reserves—into stored fat—for its energy, thereby facilitating fat loss.
Additionally, by virtually eliminating all highly-refined sugars and starches from your diet, the pancreas is afforded a rest since there is no need for it to produce much insulin, which happens to be its main function.
