Detox Diets vs. Ideal Protein Method
Detox diets are really popular among celebrities, teenagers, and young adults. The idea of cleansing your body while losing excess weight sounds like a perfect plan to most people. Losing pounds in just a few days is also a plus. Most of these diets involve fasting, juicing or restricting nutrients into the body. A typical detox diet starts with fasting and then followed by a specific diet of water, raw vegetables, fruits and fruit juices.
At Evolution Body Transformation in Madison, Wisconsin, we are proponents of using cleanse programs. We often incorporate cleanses into our clients’ programs when it is helpful to achieve their goal. However, there are problems with solely using cleanses as a weight loss program. They do not teach the dieter a sustainable way of eating. If you fast for a few days, and then go right back to your old habits the weight will return quickly.
Most detox diets are incredibly low on protein which can cause fatigue. Many days of fasting can also result in vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Several programs restrict carbohydrate intake which can make you lose weight- only to gain it all back in just a little while. This is not advisable for people who need to lose a lot of weight and those who desire long-term weight loss.
If you want a slow but sure approach to weight loss, then there is a weight loss method that’s perfect for you. The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method is a medically designed protocol which has evolved over 20 years. This method consists of 2 key components – losing excess weight and maintaining the weight after dieting.
Ideal Protein is a trusted program that has been used internationally. It focuses on fully understanding your eating habits and educates you on the major lifestyle changes you have to make so you won’t regain the weight you’ve already lost. It promotes healthy and long-term weight loss. When you join the program, you work with a personal weight loss coach that will walk you through the each of the four phases to your plan for maintenance.
In Phase 1 of the program you will be losing weight to achieve your goal. In Phases 2, 3 & 4, your coach will teach you strategies necessary for keeping the weight off and helping you adjust to your post-diet living. She will teach you the proper ways and practices in order to prevent you from gaining back all those pounds that you’ve lost during the first two Phases.
Some of the things that you will learn are how the body fat burns, the relationship between insulin and weight gain, which food groups are best suited for healthy weight management and when, why and in what combination to eat carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Both the Detox Diet and the Ideal Protein Method are effective, but with a little guidance you’ll be able to find the perfect way to lose weight and reach your weight goal.
