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
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.
