The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method is a medically designed protocol containing 2 key components – sensible weight loss and sustainable, stable weight maintenance. Our protocol has evolved for over 20 years, but was originally developed over 2 decades ago by Dr. Tran Tien Chanh who focused his career and research on nutrition with a particular emphasis on the treatment of obesity and obesity related issues.
The 4-phase protocol helps stabilize the pancreas and blood sugar levels with a structured meal and lifestyle program, while burning fat and supporting lean muscle tissue. This protocol is the recommended weight loss method in over 3,000 Professional Establishments in North America.
According to Dr. Tran Tien, “The cause of most weight issues in a modern society is insulin dysfunction. A diet grossly disproportionate in its share of saturated fats and sugars, such as in breads, cereals, muffins, cakes, pastries, pasta, pizza, rice, corn – very much like the North American diet – causes the pancreas to produce an overabundance of insulin, which stays in the system and puts the blood sugar level in a negative balance.”
Learn to live off of the body’s own fat reserves. The body employs energy from three reserves: glycogen (carbohydrate), protein and fats. First from it’s simple and complex carbohydrate reserves and when depleted, turns simultaneously to its protein and fat reserves for energy. A person not in need of weight loss typically has approximately 1-2% of their body’s reserves from carbs, approximately 19% from their muscle mass and 79% of their body reserves from fat.
How do we get the body to burn its fat reserves and not its muscle mass reserves if both are depleted simultaneously? First, Ideal Protein foods are made with high quality protein. The quality of protein used in diet products has an impact on effective protein absorption…the lower the quality, the lower the absorption. If protein absorption is low, you will not be able to protect your muscle mass and thus you will burn muscle along with fat. If you lose muscle while dieting, you will impair your ability to burn calories post-diet, as your body uses muscle mass to burn calories.
Secondly, our dieters use our nutrient-rich supplements such as Natura Multi-Vita, Natura Calcium & Magnesium and Natura Potassium, key ingredients in muscle building and electrolytes. These supplements replace those normally found in foods restricted on the Ideal Protein protocol. We also offer a modified protocol for Type I Diabetics, adolescents and children.
Based on over a decade of success the Ideal Protein Protocol enables the following:
