The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Program

Everyone knows that poor eating habits can result in weight gain. However, proper eating habits do not necessarily result in weight loss.When it comes to dieting or weight loss we always hear the same thing: eat less, exercise or eat well.

Which do you think is the right answer?

Our answer is none of the above!

Eating less is all about quantity.  Obviously, you won’t lose weight if you eat more calories than your body needs, although some people can eat what they want and not gain an ounce.  But then again, others will “look at a pastry and gain a pound.”  So, there is more to weight loss than just quantity.  Weight Loss is above all a metabolism problem related to how your body is currently regulating your hormones.

Exercising is the best way to stabilize your weight, but if you want to lose a pound of fat, you’ll have to run the equivalent of a marathon!

Right now the trend is all about eating well.  And “well” means more balanced meals!

Balance is when things are static!  For example a balanced business is a business that neither makes money or loses money.  So if you go on a balanced diet, you will eat well and you won’t gain weight but you won’t lose any either.

In order to lose weight, we must temporarily create an imbalance in our diet.

This can only be acceptable if:

1.  It is not dangerous.

2.  There is a beginning and an end.

 

What should we restrict from our diet to lose weight & burn fat?

1.  Foods that make you gain weight.  

We can easily identify these foods, pastries, pizza, french fries, etc.  If the majority of our daily food intake is made up of these types of food, we know that it can lead to weight gain.

2.  Foods that do not make you gain weight.  

We can consume these types of food as often as we would like without worrying about gaining weight: cucumbers, lettuce, celery, etc.

Most people do not realize that there is a third type of food!

3.  Food that can prevent you from losing weight & burning fat.  An organic apple or organic banana are very nutritious but they can prevent you from losing weight.  Why?  Because our bodies chronologically burn carbohydrates/sugars (simple and complex) before fats.

For the body, simple and complex carbohydrates serve as its checking account, while fat is its savings account.  Money can be withdrawn from a checking or savings account, but it is not spent in the same way.  To lose weight and burn fat, we must learn to live off of our savings account.

If you restrict daily consumption of sugars and fats without support, your body will be forced to turn its other resources for energy: fat and muscle.  Well, we want to burn fat, but definitely not muscle!  Muscle is the engine that burns calories and if you have less muscle, you’ll burn fewer calories and store more fat.

The solution is to restrict your daily consumption of simple and complex sugars and fats but regulate your hormones to prevent you from burning muscle mass.  This is exactly what the Ideal Protein Protocol Provides!

Our Protocol is NOT a hyper protein diet.  It is not a starvation diet.  It provides all the minimum daily requirements your body needs to function optimally.  It is very safe and proven, with the protocols of the diet dating back to the 1950’s.

It’s not about eating less, eating well or exercising.

The following is often said about about diets: “Yes but as soon as I am off the diet I will put back on all the pounds I just lost!”

This is where we get to the second part of the contract, where we focus on a balanced diet once weight loss goals are achieved.

Also, even though we address weight stabilization on the Maintenance Phase, until the other concerns that contributed to your weight issues in the first place are identified and addressed, they will always be a factor.

As long as you don’t recognize that every pound has a story, you’ll run the risk of putting back on the pounds you lost.  The Ideal Protein program combined with some of our other services not only will  help you achieve you goals more quickly, but will help heal the underlying cause of why you are overweight and help you maintain your weight loss.

Everyone has two stories:

A hormonal story: puberty, (for women: birth control pills, pregnancy, and menopause) and a life story.  As a rule, pounds are put on during time of discontent, not during times of pleasure.  When pleasure and morale are high, weight is low.  When pleasure is low, weight is usually high.  Pleasure plays a major role in weight issues.  There can be no lasting balance in your life without pleasure.

Pleasure is the first notion to be introduced into your diet after you’ve lost weight. You can’t stabilize your weight with just three green peas and a green bean! You’ll eat delicious foods and enjoy a little of everything.  You won’t need to count calories or measure every serving sizes on every food that comes your way.  You will also learn how to manage your deviations.

Why the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method?

First, because it helps to maintain muscle mass.  Remember muscles burn calories–we want to keep all the muscle mass we can.

Secondly (and most importantly) because it’s known that whatever the reasons for weight gain there is always a common denominator:  insulin dysfunction and pancreatic dysfunction.  Explanation:  Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas when you eat simple and complex carbohydrates.

Insulin has two roles in the body:

1.  Insulin decreases the blood sugar level (glycemia)

2.  Insulin promotes fat storage.  It converts the combination of sugar and fat we eat into fat that is stored in cells.

If an individual does not have a weight problem and eats sugar, their pancreas will produce exactly the right amount of insulin that is necessary to metabolize the sugar they just ate.

However, if an overweight individual eats sugar, their pancreas will produce more insulin than necessary to metabolize that same sugar.

Consequences:

1.  Insulin will cause the overweight individual’s blood sugar to fall too low.  He or she will tend to be “hypoglycemic” and crave more sugar.

2. At the same time, the excess insulin will make the individual gain weight because, as was mentioned earlier, insulin is the hormone that causes weight gain.

When the pancreas is in this state, it is functioning like an overheated engine.

When an engine overheats, it must be shut off to enable it to cool down.  Once it is cooled you can then restart it so that it will be more efficient.

This is exactly what you will do with your pancreas.  By restricting simple and complex carbohydrate intake you will give your pancreas a much needed rest and time to regenerate.  You will burn fat quickly and easily and not feel hungry or deprived.
