Our clinic recommends the Ideal Protein Protocol. Ideal Protein is a medically developed, methodical, weight loss protocol with over 10 years of success. In addition to stable weight loss, Ideal Protein has a heavy focus on teaching you how to maintain a balanced weight after dieting. This comes in the form of education, and smarter choices retraining. Without these elements, you are likely to regain your lost weight. In fact, according to the National Institutes of Health, dieters regain almost all of their lost weight within 5 years after dieting. Have you had that experience?
The Ideal Protein Method attacks the root cause of weight gain...your body’s overabundance of insulin. Insulin is produced by the pancreas. Its 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 from being 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 overabundance of insulin causes weight gain.
Therefore, the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method limits carbohydrates, forcing the body into burning fat stores to provide energy. As daily carbohydrate intake is limited and your body’s need for insulin is sharply reduced, your pancreas (the body’s producer of insulin) is given an opportunity to rest.
