Developed by a medical doctor and nutritionist in France over 30 years ago, The Ideal Protein Program is the last diet you should ever need. It has been available in the United States since 2008 and is available only through medical practices.
The key to this program is getting your body off carbohydrates as a source of energy and to burn stores of fat as energy, especially the belly fat. Belly fat is an accepted indicator of hyperinsulinism or excessive production of insulin from the pancreas. The insulin hormone performs two main functions in the body:
- First, it causes the cells of the body to allow sugars from the diet into them for energy production.
- Second, if there is excess sugar in the diet, it causes the excess to be stored as fat. If our bodies have been oversaturated with excessive sugars (typical in our fast food), American processed diets; our cells become insulin resistant and don’t allow sugars to enter them. Insulin then performs its second job of storing fat and we get fatter and heavier and blood sugars rise as in Type 2 Diabetes.
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Program protocols cause insulin levels to drop and your pancreas gets a much needed rest, and the cells of your body stop being resistant to insulin. Blood sugars quickly return to normal and triglyceride and cholesterol numbers decrease dramatically.
Through the use of a wide selection of specific, normal foods that you buy at the store or local farmers markets, and highly absorbable protein, available in over 50 great tasting varieties at Weber Chiropractic Office S.C., the program quickly gets your body burning stores of fat without sacrificing muscle. This results in women typically losing 3-5 pounds per week and men 4-6 pounds per week!
An extensive consultation is initially done, reviewing your health history and explaining the program. A weekly weigh-in is part of the protocol. Along with the other health benefits mentioned above, this program is truly a health rejuvenation process with weight loss as a desirable side effect.
Often people who have been on medications to control these factors can get off those medications because they are no longer necessary! Food becomes your medicine. People, who have been on the diet and quickly lost their weight, state that it was one of the easiest things they have ever done. The improved blood work from their medical doctors makes everyone happy. The knowledge you gain about food combinations and how food affects your body becomes the basis for lifelong weight and health management. People look and feel younger and can anticipate longer and healthier lives.
