What is Ideal Protein?

Pieces of the Ideal Protein method were developed more than 25 years ago by a French physician named Dr. Tran Tien Chanh. His original focus was to help athletes lose body fat without losing muscle prior to the start of their sport season as well as treat obesity and obesity related issues. Today, Ideal Protein is a well-known name among physicians and medi-spa clinics worldwide and has been used with great success across North America for nearly 10 years.

The How

what is ideal protein?We all know that to lose weight you must obviously consume fewer calories than you expend. But weight loss isn’t simply about how much weight you lose but what kind of weight! Not all pounds are created equal. To lose fat, the body must be convinced to pull calories out of storage!

Although the body has four sources of energy (blood glucose, stored glucose or glycogen, muscle and fat) it will always burn in that order leaving your fat stores as the LAST usable source instead of the first! That’s no good. Our body will never effectively burn its stored fat until the glucose and glycogen have been depleted. That’s when the magic happens.

So what is Ideal Protein and how does it work? After depletion of glucose, our body has to make a decision to use its own muscle or stored fat storage as energy. With our method, we protect the muscle leaving our body’s only one option to use as energy….FAT! If at any point we replenish the glucose, the fat-burning stops. So it’s not simply a matter of reducing calories like traditional diets offer, but which kind of calories.

No strenuous exercise is required. Learn a new “Weigh4Life” while reaching your goal.

The key to successful healthy and consistent weight loss is the unbalanced approach!

In order to deplete your sugar storage long enough to tap into your fat stores, it is crucial to temporarily upset the apple cart and unbalance out diet. This little secret makes all the difference for those who are successful. With Ideal Protein, you will limit carbohydrate intake while eating high biological protein foods, whole proteins, and healthy fats in just the right amounts to of keep the cart un-balance. Not only will your weight drop and waistline decrease, but our clients frequently report their obesity related health risks such as high blood pressure and high blood sugar decrease dramatically.

Time for Something New

What is Ideal Protein?You’ve heard the saying, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results”.

Well, it’s time to try something new. Our unique approach leads to 2-5 pounds of fat loss each and every week. Dieters at Weigh4Life not only reach their goals quickly and safely but enjoy the benefits of long lasting results and easier weight management once they achieve their goal.

We can’t tell you how often we hear our dieters say they couldn’t do it without their coach’s support and encouragement. The keys to every successful program is having a plan and having a support person and we have both!

Why is this so different?

what is ideal protein?With most average, well balanced diet programs that you may already be familiar with or tried in the past, the focus is simply on a reduction of calories not on the type of calories. This will certainly lead to overall weight loss but not the right kind. Because the balanced approach cuts all macronutrients (carbs, fats and proteins) equally, the diet consists of too much sugar and not enough protein leading to muscle loss. Additionally, exercise is an added component that adds to muscle loss and fatigue. It is difficult for your body to work harder with less resources (vitamins, nutrients and proper protein)! If we lose muscle, our metabolism will actually slow down making weight loss and weight maintenance even harder! This type of dieting can leave us in worse shape than when we started! When dieters who use this approach return to “regular” eating after meeting their goal, they find their weight creeps back up even though they are watching what they eat. The reintroduction of calories leads to weight gain and they sometimes end up even heavier than when they started dieting.

When you focus on the un-balanced approach, just the opposite can happen. The metabolism can actually increase and weight maintenance becomes easier than ever before. Other diet programs add disclaimers that say “results not typical” but with Ideal Protein at Weigh4Life, we boast the opposite. What is Ideal Protein and what makes it so different from all of the other diets out there? Clients that follow the protocol 100% see incredible, predictable, and repeatable results week after week. Doesn’t that sound like a breath of fresh air?

Our high quality meal replacements give your body exactly the minimum amount of protein- not too much and not too little. This protein is what protects your muscle leading to rapid results all while enjoying yummy foods. Our program does not require rigorous exercise because it’s NOT NEEDED for fat loss! Exercise should be enjoyable, not a punishment for what you ate! It’s a key ingredient in weight maintenance but not the necessary component for weight loss like traditional diets require!
