The Knowledge to Keep Those Pounds off Forever!
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 25 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 an easy 4-phase protocol which helps stabilize the pancreas and blood sugar levels while burning fat and maintaining muscle and other lean tissue. This protocol is also an excellent support for cellulite reduction and has been used in well over 2500 Professional Establishments in North America over the last eight years with great success.
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 over 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.
Learn to live off of the body’s own fat reserves. The body employs energy from three reserves: glycogen (carbohydrate), protein and fats. First from it’s simple and complex carbohydrate reserves and when depleted, turns simultaneously to its protein and fat reserves for energy. A person not in need of weight loss typically has approximately 1-2% of their body’s reserves from carbs, approximately 19% from their muscle mass and 79% of their body reserves from fat.
Simple and complex carbohydrates can prevent weight loss. The body stores approximately three days worth of carbohydrates. Because of this, the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method has a beginning and an end. Until 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 main principle is to deplete the glycogen (carbohydrate) reserves completely in order to compel the body to turn to its fat reserve to burn calories.
How do we get the body to burn its fat reserves and not its muscle mass reserves, if both are depleted simultaneously? First, by providing the body with foods that have a high protein value, complete with 8 essential amino acids, 97% absorbable, which make them biologically-complete proteins.
Secondly, by supplementing with nutrient-rich supplements such as Natura Multi-Vita, Natura Calcium & Magnesium and Natura Potassium, key ingredients in muscle building and electrolytes to replace those normally found in foods restricted on the Ideal Protein protocol.
A dieter will feel energized, look vibrant and feel strong. It is no wonder. Given the opportunity for the body’s natural ability to heal itself and showcase its innate and ingenious powers, such as in the way during the protocol the body will return the favor with unparalleled force, radiance and beauty.
We also offer a modified protocol for Type I diabetics, adolescents and children.
Based on over 25 years of experience and 5 million people in Europe, Canada, and the United States, the program enables the following:
- Quick weight loss without sacrificing muscle mass
- An understanding of how food affects and is utilized by the body, including what causes fat storage
- Improved skin tone by providing the skin nutrients it needs
- Utilization of stored fat for energy usually by day 4 – fat, (along with cellulite) that contains chemical toxins
- Improved energy, appetite control and reduced cravings – usually on day 4 or 5
- Improved blood sugar, cholesterol levels and reduced blood pressure
My Ideal Protein Diet Experience
In the summer of 2011, my daughter Sara was in an automobile accident that resulted in massagetherapy and chiropractic care. She went to Eastside Chiropractic Care to be treated by Dr. DarrylSchreyer. Our family had successful treatment there in the past and the clinic is less than twentyminutes from our home. I asked her often how she was doing with her treatment and she usuallysaid it was fine.
One day, Sara told us that she had signed up for a diet open house at the clinic and that she alsosigned up my wife and I as well. She said we should check it out because she worried about us. Sheadded that she was especially worried about me because I had gained quite a bit of weight and withmy “stressful job,” it just wasn’t healthy. I might have been more surprised and a bit offended bythis but I knew where I was; at least 270lbs or better. We agreed to check out the open house andafter attending, I spoke to my wife, Evette. I said that it was a good idea for Sara and we shouldsupport her, help pay for it and consider dieting along with her so her chances of cheating werereduced. I said if we don’t change our eating habits and she goes it alone, she would have a hardtime with this. They took a weight measurement the day of the open house. I had no idea that Iactually weighed 314 lbs! The three of us signed up that day. Since July 5th of 2011, I have lostalmost 120 lbs. I stopped taking blood pressure medicine after I lost enough weight that itnormalized. My doctor had me self monitor at home and when it consistently lowered, the doctorcongratulated me and said I didn’t need medication any longer.
I also felt a whole lot better. After work, I had recently started napping a lot. I was exhausted at theend of the day and my feet and ankles were always hurting. I wore orthotic inserts for years. Afterthe weight started dropping, I had enough energy to make it until my regular bedtime and my anklesand feet stopped hurting after work. Today, I warmed up the van for work and had slipped on a pairof shoes I wear around the house. Before I left, I forgot to change to my work boots, which haveorthotics in them. After arriving at the job site, I saw the shoes and dreaded the end of the day. I wassure my feet were going to be sore. I put in an extra hour and a half of overtime, had been on myfeet nearly nine hours and I felt fine when I returned home. It was amazing.
I went from a size 40 waist to size 33. I went from 3XL shirts to Large. I replaced my entirewardrobe little by little, I will never go back to that size again. I’m going back to my martial artstraining again. I have a new life. People see me now who knew me eight months ago and don’trecognize me. That’s more fun than I imagined. It has been easy to lose this weight. The diet issatisfying and filling and the weight just starts falling off. I know how to eat better now. I could eatthis way for the rest of my life and I wouldn’t miss any of the junk I used to eat. And I’m still atphase one. I want to thank Dr. Schreyer, Ashley and staff for providing this diet plan. You’ve done agreat service to your patients by your efforts and your support and assistance is greatly appreciated. I have recommended many people to come and ta1k to you about Ideal Protein and will continue to do this out of my own gratitude for all your help.
My wife Evette, has lost 50 lbs. Sara has lost 75lbs. I’ve lost nearly 120lbs. Ideal Protein hasmiraculously helped my family to help ourselves. With determination and commitment, I trulybelieve Ideal Protein has the answer many overweight people have been searching for.
