What is Ideal Protein?
The Ideal Protein Protocol is a medically developed 4 phase weight loss and weight management protocol, containing 2 key components: 1) weight loss, and 2) healthier lifestyle education so that you are empowered to sustain your weight loss results over time.
How does Ideal Protein work?
The four phases of the Ideal Protein Protocol work by bringing your relationship with food back to its fundamentals, and are designed to help you: set, achieve and maintain your weight loss goals.
The Protocol is broken down into Four Phases:
- Phase 1 – Weight Loss
- Phase 2 – Pre-Stabilization
- Phase 3 – Pre-Stabilization and gradual reintroduction of healthy carbohydrates and fat
- Phase 4 – Maintenance
During the weight loss phases of the Protocol, we limit carbohydrate intake to encourage the body to turn to its fat and muscle components for energy. This normal metabolic process is called ketosis.
What is Ketosis?
Ketosis is a normal metabolic process, which refers to the state of metabolism the body is in when it uses fat as a primary energy source.
In fact, we all do a little ‘ketosis” each night when we sleep. As we fast during the night, our blood sugars drop and our body begins breaking down fat to use as energy.
What sets Ideal Protein apart from other diets?
What sets the Ideal Protein Protocol apart from other weight loss diets on the market is our focus on weight issues at their source.
The Protocol aims at reducing carbohydrates and fats, not protein. In so doing, it preserves muscle tissue and protects vital organs to secure their proper function. In other words, the goal is to lose fat, not muscle.
While on the Protocol, through personalized coaching, you’re also provided with healthier lifestyle education so that you are empowered to sustain your weight loss results over your life course.
