Fat is simply stored energy. Time to make it work for you.
Weight loss isn't easy but it is simple. We can help.
The Knowledge to Keep Pounds Off...For Good.
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method is a medically designed protocol that results in fat loss while sparing muscle mass. The protocol was developed in France 30 years ago by Dr. Tran Tien Chanh, MD PhD, who focused his career and research on nutrition with a particular emphasis on the treatment of obesity and obesity related issues.
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method is a simple 4-phase protocol which helps stabilize the pancreas and blood sugar levels. While on the diet, your body primarily uses fat for energy while perserving muscle and other lean tissue.
What is the Source of Most Weight Issues?
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.”
An overproduction of insulin also leads to hypoglycemia or low glycemia, which in turn induces constant sugar cravings and weight gain. Insulin’s primary function is to regulate blood sugar levels however it is also the hormone that facilitates the transport of fat (triglycerides) into the fat cells. Even worse, it "locks" the fat in the fat cell, preventing it to be used as a source of energy. Now, because the blood sugar has dropped (and we can’t access the fat as a fuel source) it creates "sugar cravings' and the vicious cycle begins again. In other words, an abundance of insulin causes weight gain.
The Ideal Protein protocol will transform the body's ability to digest sugars properly by regulating insulin levels. How? By giving the pancreas a well-deserved break and by limiting simple and complex carbs until the weight loss goal is achieved.
Principles Behind the Protocol: Learn to live off of the body's own fat reserves.
The body employs energy from three reserves: glycogen (carbohydrates), protein and fats. First from its simple and complex carbohydrate reserves and when depleted, turns simultaneously to its protein and fat reserves for energy.
Simple and complex carbohydrates can prevent weight loss. The body stores approximately three days worth of carbohydrates. Therefore, wntil 100% of the weight loss goal is achieved, we restrict sugars (simple and complex).
Why? Because, as long as sugar is being consumed, the body is not burning fat. It's as simple as that. Remember, the first source of energy is derived from glycogen (carbohydrate) reserves. The body must be deplete its glycogen reserves to compel it to turn to its fat reserve to burn calories.
Nutritional needs are meant on the diet with mandatory supplements such as Natura Multi-Vitamin, Natura Calcium & Magnesium, Natura Potassium-Citrate, Natura Omega 3, Natura Digestive Enzymes and Ideal Salt--key ingredients in muscle building and electrolyte production to replace those normally found in foods restricted on the Ideal Protein protocol.
We also have an Alternative Protocol for Type 2 Insulin Dependent Diabetics.
How long will you remain on the program?
It depends how much weight you want to lose.
During weekly coaching appointments, you'll learn how to eat and how to cook for health. When you enter the last phase of the protocol, your pancreas has been "reset" and will be functioning optimally, which means less insulin production and less fat storage.
