How does the Ideal Protein diet work?

The Ideal Protein diet is a 4-step weight loss program that helps you set, achieve, and maintain your weight loss goals. The diet helps you modify your eating habits by increasing your protein intake and cutting down on carbohydrates and other sugary foods. When you limit your carbohydrate intake, your body starts burning its fat stores for energy. However, the increased protein intake ensures that you maintain your muscle mass while developing smarter eating habits and lifestyle choices.

The first two phases of the Ideal Protein diet help you lose the extra weight, while the last two concentrate on stabilizing and maintaining your weight forever.

The four phases of Ideal Protein

The Ideal Protein diet has four phases. The first two stages of the four-phase Ideal Protein program focus on setting weight loss goals and working towards those goals. The final two steps center on stabilizing and maintaining a healthy weight forever.

Phase 1

The emphasis is solely on weight loss in this phase, and you will remain in this phase till you have lost at least 80% of your excess weight. Modifying your eating habits begins here as you will replace your meals with three Ideal Protein food products per day. You will also need to combine these products with at least 4 cups of vegetables and about 5 to 7 ounces of lean animal protein.

Phase 2

When you have already lost a huge chunk of excess weight, the rate of weight loss sometimes slows down. To continue losing weight, you will replace either one of your lunch or dinner packets with lean meat or fish. You will remain in Phase 2 till you have achieved your ideal body weight. 

Phase 3

Developing healthy eating habits is vital to maintaining your ideal weight life long. Phase 3 introduces whole grains and dairy products into your normal diet.

Phase 4

The last phase focuses on education to help you inculcate healthy lifestyle choices to maintain your weight and live life to the fullest. You will learn about how the body burns fat and the best foods for healthy weight management. You will also learn about how to combine protein, carbohydrates, and fats in your meals and the best time to eat them.

The cause of many 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.

What can you eat on the Ideal Protein diet?

Eating right is easy with Ideal Protein products. You can choose from the plan’s delicious lineup of drinks, breakfasts and entrées, desserts, puddings, jelly, and much, much more. Your whole family will be tempted to eat the entrées, which include choices like Spaghetti Bolognese Mix for pasta lovers and Vegetable Chili Mix.

Simple carbohydrates like starches and sugar have been known to promote weight gain. The Ideal Protein diet cuts out simple carbohydrates from your diet and encourages the body to burn fat for energy. It encourages the intake of high-quality protein that helps maintain muscle mass while you lose weight the healthy way.

Continued support keeps the weight from coming back

After you reach your weight goals in Phases 1 and 2, you will receive continued support in phases three and four to keep that weight from returning. In these educational phases, you will learn:

  • How your body burns fat
  • The relationship between insulin and weight gain
  • The best foods for healthy weight management
  • How to combine and time your consumption of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins
