Ideal Protein is a powerful, scientifically-proven medical fat loss program developed by doctors that causes weight loss by targeting body fat while maintaining muscle mass and vitality. Ideal Protein was originally developed by a French M.D.—Dr. Chanh Tran Tien— to secure the muscle mass of high-performance athletes and regulate their insulin levels. This 4-stage eating plan helps stabilize blood sugar levels while burning fat and maintaining muscle mass and aims at long-term health promotion and weight control. Also working on obesity-related issues, Dr. Chanh soon discovered that the same diet helped obese patients achieve quick, healthy, long-lasting weight loss.

You’ve already taken the first step on your journey towards stable weight can’t stop now. Give us a call today at 831-324-0416 to request your initial weight loss assessment and learn more about the Ideal Protein weight loss method.

How it Works

Ideal Protein is not a high protein diet but provides the optimal amount of protein, while being low in carbohydrates and fat. The goals of Ideal Protein is to cause the body to delve into its energy reserves—into stored fat—thereby facilitating fat loss. The typical American diet stresses the pancreas as it must constantly pump out insulin to take care of the high amount of sugars and carbohydrates. Excess insulin promotes sugar craving, as it can cause a drop in the blood sugar level (hypoglycemia). Even more importantly, insulin—the fat storage hormone—converts the calories you’ve consumed into stored fat. Consequently, an overproduction of insulin leads to excess fat storage .Ideal Protein is low in carbohydrates and fat with no trans fats, no aspartame and is MSG-free. After approximately three days on Ideal Protein, glycogen reserves are depleted and the body begins to burn stored fat for energy. This results in the production of ketoses that provide energy and are natural appetite suppressants thus preventing food cravings. As stored fat becomes the first source of energy, you will start losing weight. By supplying all essential amino acids, you will maintain your muscle mass which is the engine that burns calories every minute of the day.

Diet Protocol,, Understanding ketosis

The Ideal Protein diet uses the principles of KETOSIS, along with regulating insulin and glucagon levels to promote the burning of stored fat for energy. By restricting carbohydrate consumption to between 20-30 g per day, the pancreas will stop producing insulin, which carries glucose into fat cells for storage, and produce glucagon, which opens fat cells and pulls the stored energy out to be used. High levels of soy and whey proteins help build and maintain lean muscle mass, so the internal organs are protected and the body burns more calories. At the completion of the diet, pancreatic function is stabilized, and lean muscle mass is increased.

Losing weight and keeping it off is extremely difficult especially for someone who has been obese and overweight for sometime.  Many just give up having tried popular diets repeatedly to loss weight only to gain it all back.  Losing weight by yourself is almost impossible as the causes of obesity or overweight are complex and largely the result of having become addicted to excess sugars and carbs that in almost all FDA approved food products.
