Fundamentals of the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol

Fundamentals of the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol


In 2013, the American Medical Association
or A.M.A., officially labelled obesity as a disease. According to the National Institute of Health, nearly seventy percent of Americans,
20 years of age and older, are either overweight or obese, twice what this number was in 1980. It is now clear that weight
related health concerns have become an epidemic
around the world. It’s time we take control of our health. The inflammation brought on
by being overweight or obese could cause numerous and
potential medical conditions like diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, coronary artery disease
and some cancers. The statistics become
even more alarming. while adult rates of obesity
have doubled, childhood obesity rates,
on the other hand, have tripled. According to results published in The Journal of
the American Dietetic Association Association in a study called
Findings and policy implications for improving the health of U.S. children, almost one third of American children, nearly 23 million children and teens are either overweight or obese. Largely because
of this epidemic of obesity, today’s children may be
the first generation of Americans to live shorter lives than their parents, as can be read in another study, this time published in
The New England Journal of Medicine, called A potential decline in life expectancy
in the United States in the 21st century. It seems as though
the epidemic is winning. Is there a way to fight back
and take control of our health? Did you know, that a medically designed
and developed weight loss protocol, that is consistent with evidence-based
guidelines on weight loss management, which we call Lifestyle Building,
and maintenance, which we call Lifestyle Living, is safe and effective and provides you with predictable and measurable
results, is available? Yes, since that’s
what Ideal Protein offers. Ideal Protein is a low calorie,
low carbohydrate, protein-based, supervised,
Ketogenic protocol, supplemented with
partial meal replacements. But here is the main difference
with Ideal Protein, where other diets simply fall flat. Ideal Protein doesn’t just focus
on helping you lose weight. From day one you will learn how to
properly manage your nutrition giving you the power
to make the right decisions. Ideal Protein has a structured approach
to stabilization and maintenance. This evidence-based 12 month
stabilization period, and support it provides,
are critical for the first year after weight loss
and maintenance thereafter. Here is why. We understand that long term success
of weight maintenance, means that we need support and guidance in changing
our lifestyle and eating habits. Changing these behaviors
is the key to long term success. This is where Ideal Protein
really stands apart. We not only care about
your success during weight loss, we care about helping you take control
of your health for the long term. This is what we call the Ideal Difference. Our weight loss phase
is what we call Lifestyle Building. Our maintenance and stabilization phases
are what we call a Lifestyle Living, and that is exactly
what we want you to do. Live a happy healthy Ideal Life. However, Ideal Protein
is an uncompromised protocol. It doesn’t put forward any easy shortcuts
to losing weight it requires dedication and discipline. If you follow the protocol
and the rules diligently, you will get results, but if you don’t follow the rules
you will get no results. Is it not time for you
to take control of your health? Let’s stop for a second and talk about what is believed
to be the cause of the epidemic epidemic that now faces our society and the health issues related
to being overweight or obese. Starting as early as the 1960s, with the fat free craze movement
pointing to fat as the single villain in weight gain, carbohydrates were then promoted heavily as part of a healthier,
nutritional regiment. Today, several decades of scientific
research have clearly demonstrated that sugar is the common denominator in the epidemi
of overweight and obesity. Although, eating too much fat
remains on healthy, we now see fat as an accomplice, than the sole source of this epidemic. You see, the sugar that we consume comes in many different forms. Some are hidden, like in condiments,
juices and pasta and some are more apparent like in
pastries, cookies and soft drinks. Consuming sugar
is not necessarily unhealthy, but we are simply consuming
an abundance of it. Did you know that
four grams of carbohydrates becomes one teaspoon of sugar? An average slice of bread contains at least
twenty grams of carbohydrates, which represents the equivalent
of five teaspoons of sugar. And this does not take into effect
all of the additions, such as cheeses, sauces, jams and so on. Our bodies like sugar, after all it’s a quick energy source, the one our body burns first, but when we consume
more than we can burn, our bodies need to store
the excess somewhere, so we store it as fat. How can this happen? When we consume sugar, the pancreas
releases a hormone called insulin. This hormone
has many functions in the body. You’ve heard
of this hormone before, right? Most people know that insulin
lowers blood sugar in the body. But what most people don’t know, is that it accomplishes
lowering of blood sugar by storing it in the form of fat. When we eat carbohydrates
our blood sugar goes up, the pancreas secretes insulin and
returns blood sugar levels to normal. This process is very healthy if we are eating a good ratio
of carbohydrates, fats and proteins on a daily basis. However, for most of us, our hectic lifestyle
prevents us from making wise choices. That means the average pancreas
is secreting excessive amounts of insulin. Over time,this chronic
over-production of insulin results in a lowered sensitivity
of the body to that insulin. This is known as insulin resistance. This leads to a collection of symptoms
collectively known as the Metabolic Syndrome. symptoms include high blood sugar, high blood pressure, cholesterol
abnormalities and abdominal obesity. In order to effectively tackle obesity, we need to focus on
the underlying symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome by lowering insulin. Makes sense right? Is it really that straightforward? In most cases, yes. This is exactly what the Ideal Protein
protocol is intended to do. Many licensed healthcare
practitioners reports having success with either lowering
the number of medications that their patients are taking
or simply decreasing their dosage following the successful completion
of the protocol. So you now understand how we store fat, now let’s talk about the why. First, because of our bad eating habits, over time our North American diet has
promoted eating way too many carbohydrates and fats for our bodies to stay healthy. Secondly, the overproduction of insulin. In having to deal with blood sugar levels levels that consistently demand
that our pancreas secretes insulin, we end up with a lowered sensitivity
of the body to that insulin, and even an overproduction
of insulin in many cases. And finally, the lack of exercise. Most of us are no longer the hunters and farmers our ancestors
used to be hundreds of years ago. Our sedentary lifestyles
resulting spending less and less time moving and more
and more and more time eating. Now let’s describe how
dieters are losing weight on the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol. Glucose, protein and fat are three sources of energy
that our bodies can utilize. Our bodies will first burn
the easiest source glucose or carbohydrates. Our bodies contain enough stored glucose to be able to fast for about a day. Once the stored sugars
have been depleted the body has no choice but to use
a different source for energy. The body will now break down the fat
that it has been storing for years, and convert them into ketone bodies. These ketone bodies
will then be used as energy, even when there is not enough
glucose present. This normal metabolic process
is known as ketosis, not to be confused with ketoacidosis, which is all about the burning of fat. Ketosis is an important part of the
Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol. This process occurs when the protocol
markedly restricts carbohydrates and fats, while still consuming
adequate amounts of protein. To be able to maintain muscle mass
and one’s vitality, adequate amounts of protein must be
consumed on a daily basis. So how is Ideal Protein
different from other low calorie diets? With typical low calorie diets,
you lose three things: fat and lean tissue; including muscle. If you regain the weight,
you can regain more fat. Does that make sense?
Let’s elaborate First, as we all know, if we don’t
burn all of the calories we eat, they’re going to get stored as fat. So, it’s important to understand
that our muscle tissue tissue is our body’s biggest burner
of calories, even when we’re resting. The more muscle tissue we have, the less calories left over
to be stored as fat. So we want to develop
and protect our muscles. Now, let’s compare two female dieters
who are similar in height, weight, age and so on and both
want to lose twenty pounds. Let’s call them Suzy and Jane. Suzy decides to follow a conventional
low calorie, low fat, low protein diet, where she tends to eat very little
and skip meals. Suzy is doing this diet alone
and has no coach. Jane, however, decides to follow
the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol. During her journey,
she is helped by a certified coach, followed on a weekly basis
and receives education and tools to create
her Lifestyle Building. They both follow their programs
diligently and have success, however, there is a difference. Unfortunately for Suzy,
she has lost ten pounds of fat and ten pounds that was not fat,
most of which was muscle. On the other hand,
by following the protocol carefully, most of what Jane lost was fat, with very little impact
on her muscle tissue. Now as time goes by,
what will happen to Suzy and Jane as they eat normal amounts of food? Unfortunately, Suzy now has less muscle
than she had prior to her diet. Without that muscle, she’s going to have
some leftover calories that didn’t get burned. She’s at risk of gaining weight
even more quickly than before, because of the muscle loss. Jane kept most of her muscle mass, so these muscles are
burning more calories. That means Jane doesn’t have
all those leftover calories ready to be stored as fat like Suzy does. She’s far more likely to be successful at maintaining her new weight than Suzy. Remember, muscle is the engine
that burns calories. If you continue to lose muscle,
to lose weight, you may simply regain it even faster. So now you understand,
from a nutritional standpoint, how Ideal Protein is different from
the conventional low calorie diet. Then why not just eat whole protein and forget about Ideal Protein foods? Let’s explain this important question
with very simple facts. You will have quite a bit
of natural protein in your diet, but remember, that it generally
also comes with its own fat. Ideal Protein foods are important as
the source of the rest of your protein needs, because they allow you
to keep your calorie intake low, avoiding the extra fat. More than that, with over 80
different foods available, Ideal Protein helps keep
your diet enjoyable, with a multitude of flavors and textures,
which will remain fresh and tasty. This even includes foods
like pancakes, oatmeal, chili, pasta, bars, chips, shakes and so on. There are also gluten free
and lactose free choices available. All of our foods are packaged
in individual portions containing a precisely calculated
amount of nutrients, to ensure a maximum amount
of high biological value protein, with a minimum amount of calories
and saturated fats. Finally, individually sealed packets
also ensure convenience, because we understand
the challenges related to planning and having foods that
are readily available available to accommodate
our hectic schedules. For most dieters, the Ideal
Protein Phase one protocol will require many changes
in your eating habits, and therefore we facilitate this
transition into your new lifestyle. What does someone on the Ideal Protein
Weight Loss Protocol eat on a daily basis? A typical dieter will consume a minimum of three protein-based
partial meal replacements, along with other healthy foods
specifically: four cups of vegetable, as well as a serving of a whole
protein source like beef, poultry, eggs or even
a vegetarian substitute. In addition, a dieter could also consume
unlimited raw vegetables and lettuce. For proper hydration and vitality, the protocol also focuses
on adequate intake of water, electrolytes and nutrient supplements. It is also enjoyable to point out that patients share that
they rarely feel hungry, sleep soundly and have lots of energy. In other words, they feel great. Since Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol predictable, measurable and repeatable, we are able to estimate
approximately how long a dieter will be on the Phase
one protocol. How can they do this?
With the advice of their coach. Typical weight loss results vary from up to six to eight pounds loss
during the first two weeks and up to two pounds
per week thereafter, when the Ideal Protein Weight Loss
Protocol is followed diligently. It’s important to note that
there is a beginning and an end to the Ideal Protein
Weight Loss Protocol. Once you’ve lost the desired weight, maintaining your new weight
becomes the priority. You will be provided with
Lifestyle Building strategies such as evidence-based advice, education guidelines and tools to learn how to build a lifestyle
of healthy eating. The best part is yet to come. Your new Lifestyle Living. You don’t have to at it alone.
We have a plan. A countless number of people have successfully lost weight at one
of the many Ideal Protein clinics or centers worldwide, with weight loss
ranging from a few to several hundred pounds. Prior to starting the Ideal Protein
Weight Loss Protocol, dieters must complete a health profile which is reviewed by the licensed
health care professional and coach during the initial consultation. This is required as we must be aware
of any or all health care issues. During the weight loss phase, participants visit the clinic each week
for weigh ins, measurements, useful education and encouragement. Once the weight loss objective
is achieved, the clinic assists the transition
into stabilization and long term maintenance
of the new weight. After all, the point of
losing the weight in the first place is to keep it off, right? Before we say goodbye,
here’s a quick overview. The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol
consists of four phases. The first part, which focuses
on Lifestyle Building, is the weight loss portion
of the protocol and the second,
which focuses on Lifestyle Living, is the maintenance portion
of the protocol. Phase one: to be followed until the weight
loss goal has been achieved. Phase two and Phase three
are the pre-stabilisation, which is to be followed
for only two weeks each. Phase four, which starts with a period
of twelve months, is the stabilization. This is the beginning of what we call
the Ideal Lifestyle Living. Here dieters will apply all
of the knowledge and education education that they have learned
from their Ideal Protein coach. Ideal Protein is not a magic wand. No diet is a vaccine against
being overweight or obese, or even weight regained,
but this protocol is a powerful tool, helping real people achieve what they
may have never believed possible. Do you not love yourself enough? Now you must decide,
why not take control of your health and start your journey towards
your new Lifestyle Living? Why wait?

  1. A lot of people can't afford to feed their families a lot of healthy food….how are they supposed to follow this diet ? I'm on it and it's quite expensive for even one person …..?

  2. The cost pales in comparison to what a dieter can gain. The price also includes an education for those in need and behavioural coaching, some need a massive correction in what they input into themselves, if you don't need that or help with staying accountable then yes, better off finding another diet, and keep in mind that the price is also an investment in yourself, and another reason to not cheat, to get through protocol as cleanly as you can.

  3. Most "fad" diets ignore things like preserving muscle mass, longterm solutions, and a healthy weight loss pace. This program seems much less a "fad diet" to me now after watching the video and seems to have roots in healthy nutrition.

    I guess if you're selling a product it has to be legit in terms of long-term results in order to convince new customers to order in the name of sustaining long-term success. Which is imperative with a business model revolving around weight loss since people will eventually stop buying once they reach thier goal.

    Consider me convinced. As someone who's studied nutrition and healthy living for a decade the basis for this diet in preserving muscle mass, losing weight at a slow and healthy pace, and educating customers in the importance of lifestyle changes for long-term weight management are all key points I make when I train and was very surprised to see being stressed here. I always knock "fad diets" because they have fast but not lasting results but this program is certainly not the same as those.

    Kudos to these folks and good luck to everyone taking part!
