Frequently Asked Questions . . .
How is the Ideal Protein Weight Loss method different from other protein diets on the market?
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss method treats weight issues at its source. By the time you reach your weight loss goals, you will have transformed your body's ability to metabolize sugar by re-educating your pancreas to produce only the right amount of insulin needed.
The program aims at reducing carbohydrates and fats, not protein. Preserves muscle tissues and protects vital organs to secure their proper function. So, you will lose fat, not muscle.
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss method features up to 20 grams of protein per portion, twice as much as most of the competition.
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss method features a high biological protein, complete with eight essential amino acids that recreate 100% of the biological value of a complete protein for maximum assimilation and absorption.
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss method is less toxic than other protein diets because it features less saturated fats, no trans fats, no aspartame, no Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) and no Genertically-Modified Organisms (GMOs).
Is the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method Safe?
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss method is safe for everyone, except those with a dysfunctional liver or kidneys. Diabetics, Type I, should only do the Alternative diet, and women who are pregnant or breast feeding should only use the Ideal Protein's protein foods to supplement their diet.
Why is exercise NOT REQUIRED during the Ideal Protein weight loss method?
Dieters on the protocol are on a very low caloric diet, yet their body is actually "getting more calories" than they were prior to starting our protocol. Why?
Because they are burning fat. They are getting about 900 Kcals per day from the foods they are eating (on Phase 1) but if they lose 4 lbs per week (on average) 4 x 3500 Kcal/lb of fat means 14,000 Kcal/week, divide by 7 equals 2000 Kcals per day.
They are actually consuming 900 Kcal + 2000 Kcals = 2,900 Kcals per day by using your fat stores.
Your body must make the necessary enzymes to fully burn the ketonic bodies that are produced from fat metabolism (beta oxidation). It takes about two weeks for this to happen.
During the first 3 weeks your body is getting the necessary "enzymatic machinery" in place so it can use 100% of the ketonic bodies (for cellular fuel) your body is producing from burning the fat. In the first couple of weeks, it cannot use all of them and you breath them out (acetone breath), "pee them out" (ketostix turn purple when you dip them in your uring) or you excrete excess ketones in your feces.
Here's the beauty of the program.
During this period... you literally are "peeing out calories" without having to exercise. You will lose the same amount of weight, but will not risk losing muscle. This is not about calories in, calories out -it's about hormones and metabolism. You were fighting a hormone (insulin) before and you can't exercise your way out of that, the hormone always wins. After the first 3 weeks, you may exercise, but please keep in mind: Do not get overly tired. Supplements are a must and keep well hydrated. If exercising, you must increase your water intake.
