Ever heard of a diet that not only promotes fat loss but also enhances muscle tone? Some high protein diets can be high in saturated fat, taxing the liver and the kidneys. The Unbalanced Diet provides just the right amount of high quality protein needed to protect and improve muscle mass and vital organs while reducing fat and eliminating simple and starchy carbohydrates until your weight loss goal is achieved.
We use the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method which was developed by an award-winning nutrition company and Dr. Tran Tien Chanh, MD PhD, a European doctor who focused his career and research on nutrition with a particular emphasis on the treatment of obesity and obesity-related issues.
This weight loss method is a 4-phase protocol, which helps to stabilize the pancreas and blood sugar levels while burning fat and maintaining muscle and other lean tissue (organs). This method is also an excellent treatment for cellulite reduction and has been used in over one thousand Medi-spas and aesthetical clinics in North America over the last eight years with great success.
The FDA-approved labeled products are available only through trained and certified health care professionals, who guide you through the program. This valuable process serves to educate and encourage you with a consistent method that is scientifically proven and deemed by nearly everyone who tries it, as easy to follow and maintain.
How The Pancreas Works
The typical American diet - which consists of an over-abundance of processed foods such as refined sugars and starches like white bread, white pasta, potatoes, snacks and sweets, etc. - overworks the pancreas. The pancreas must constantly pump out insulin to take care of all the sugar that these foods contain. Refined carbohydrates and most starchy foods are broken down into glucose quickly and enter the bloodstream. Whatever is not needed immediately for energy is swooped up by insulin, converted into fat and stored. Since it is the job of the pancreas to produce the insulin necessary to remove glucose from the bloodstream (and store it as fat), eating a high-carbohydrate diet causes the pancreas to work overtime and it can eventually become dysfunctional.
An overworked pancreas produces excess insulin, resulting in a drastic drop in the blood sugar level (hypoglycemia), thereby leading to cravings for sugar. When more sugar is consumed, the cycle starts over. Remember, insulin is also the fat storage hormone - the hormone that converts the carbohydrates you've consumed into stored fat. Consequently, keeping insulin levels down is an important key to healthy weight loss.
Syndrome X (Metabolic Syndrome)
Our plan targets prevention and solutions for Syndrome X, (also called "Metabolic Syndrome"). Only two of the four following symptoms need be present in adults or children for an individual to be considered as suffering from Metabolic Syndrome:
- Obesity (BMI over 30)
- Blood sugar issues (diabetes)
- Cholesterol problems
- High blood pressure
Obesity and diabetes are pandemic in our country. Elevated cholesterol and high blood pressure are also very common.
how the ideal protein weight loss method works
The body gets its fuel (or energy) from three macronutrient sources: Carbohydrates, protein and fat. The carbohydrate reserves (also called Glycogen reserves, stored in the muscles and liver for quick energy) are used up first, followed by our protein and fat reserves.
After approximately 3 days on the Ideal Protein Diet (or Treatment, as we like to call it), your glycogen reserves are depleted and your body begins to burn your stored fat for energy. This results in your body producing ketonic bodies (ketones) that are a natural appetite suppressant, thus preventing cravings after the first few days and providing you with natural energy. Your body has turned to its fat reserves as its first source of energy, and you will then burn fat while nourishing muscle with the high-quality, highly-absorbable Ideal Protein foods that you consume throughout the day.
During this time, you will also reset your pancreas by giving it a much-needed rest. A properly functioning pancreas is the key to avoiding filling up your fat reserves (gaining weight) once you have completed the "treatment" period and you return to a normal, balanced diet.
It is well established that certain foods and eating and life-style habits can cause weight while others can prevent weight loss. We will guide you and support you in your quest to lose fat safely by helping you understand the difference between eating a balanced diet and eating for weight loss. Most importantly, upon reaching the final stage, you will also have learned healthy life-style habits and how to use the right combinations of foods to maintain your ideal weight permanently.
the treatment plan
While most diets require you to weigh and measure food, track points, or follow complicated recipes, the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method allows you to lose weight with minimal effort. It is also nothing like the diets that offer packaged foods that are low-calorie versions of the same exact foods that caused you to gain weight in the first place. With the Ideal Protein instant packets, you have the option of keeping it very simple, or you may get creative if you like.
- Stage 1: You start out using a packet of Ideal Protein food as the basis of 3 of your 4 meals each day and you eat a low-carb-low-fat "regular" dinner. Follow this regimen until you have reach 80-90% of your weight loss goal.
- Stage 2: Reduce the Ideal Protein foods to 2 per day, eating 2 low-carb, low-fat "regular" meals and continue this plan until you've reach 100% of your goal.
- Stage 3: For weight loss stabilization, you will re-introduce moderate amounts of fats and carbohydrates into your diet for 14 days. You only have 1 Ideal Protein food per day and 3 regular meals.
- Stage 4: You continue to eat the way you have been taught. By this time, you have learned to eat in a much healthier fashion, choosing healthy foods in the right combinations. As a result, you are able to maintain your ideal weight while still enjoying all the foods you like, in moderate amounts.
