Ideal Protein Weight Loss Results
Dr Cynthia Thaik and the health care staff of the Holistic Healing Heart Center are happy to report that participants in our eight-week weight loss program reported their Ideal Protein weight loss results, which were very encouraging to see. Our dataset of twenty participants (10 men and 10 women) varying in age from 20s to 70s lost substantial amounts of weight per week on average. The men in our program lost an average of 4.7 pounds per week, while the women lost an average of 3.7 pounds. To put it another way, the average weight of the men in our study was 258lbs on Day 1, and 220lbs on Day 56, the final day (a decrease of approximately 15%). Similarly, the average start weight of the women in our study was 243.1lbs on Day 1, and 213.8lbs on Day 56 (a decrease of approximately 12%). These results are very encouraging for the Ideal Protein program and for those seeking rapid weight loss results. Of course, given the relatively small size of the sample group, this data is not indicative of the results everyone will experience. Nevertheless, the universally positive results do indicate that most people who embark on the program are also likely to experience significant progress on their weight loss goals.
What is Ideal Protein?
The Ideal Protein weight loss plan is a diet protocol for omnivores and vegetarians that emphasizes protein and deemphasizes carbohydrates and fats. The diet causes your body to start burning through its fat stores and facilitating weight loss faster than what is typical with most diet plans, while preserving muscle mass.
What is a Realistic Weight Loss Goal?
Under ordinary circumstances, the CDC advises that losing between 1 and 2 pounds a week is a reasonable amount to expect. This means that someone undergoing a regular weight loss plan at the same time as our Ideal Protein protocol participants would have lost between 8 and 16 pounds. Every single one of our participants lost at least 16 pounds. Some, much much more. One participant lost as much as 50 pounds. According to Ideal Protein themselves, men and women undergoing their diet experience the greatest impact to their weight in the first two weeks of the plan, and steady progress thereafter.
How Much Weight Can I Lose on Ideal Protein?
The Ideal Protein diet’s goal is to lose body fat and maintain lean muscle by inducing your body to burn its fat stores for energy instead of sustaining itself only on the food you eat. The Ideal Protein foods are formulated specially to help program participants lose fat and get closer to a healthy weight. Based on the results from this limited set, a realistic weight loss goal from the Ideal Protein program would be at least 10% of your total body weight.
Is it Harder to Lose Weight for Women?
One question that we often hear from people who enquire about weight loss programs such as Ideal Protein is whether it is easier for men to lose weight than it is for women. While individual cases may vary, the truth is that there are multiple factors that make it more difficult to lose weight for women than men.
Studies show that women typically have lower proportions of muscle mass and higher proportions of body fat than men. Maintaining muscle mass burns more calories than fat, which means that men tend to have a higher base metabolic rate than women (the amount of calories they can intake per day while remaining perfectly inactive, while not contributing to weight gain).
When eating out, for example, restaurants serve the same sized portions to all diners. However, men and women have different nutritional needs. A portion of fish and chips that might be an appropriate amount of food for a man may be contributing to weight gain for a woman. It is beneficial to make informed decisions about your nutritional needs, instead of uncritically accepting and consuming everything served to you.
There is an unfortunate psychological component to weight loss that makes it harder for women to lose weight, and that is the amount of pressure put on women to work towards idealized bodies. This can make it harder for women to lose weight because of the urgency of the messaging: results are required as soon as possible. Instead of being patient with themselves, women will take drastic measures like cutting out entire food groups with fad diets, or starving themselves. If severe changes to food intake are not carefully administered as part of a monitored weight loss program, these behaviors can lead to ‘yo-yo dieting’, where the body lurches between losing and gaining weight in response to extreme conditions it is subjected to.
In spite of these factors, weight loss is achievable, and Ideal Protein is a proven method of achieving significant weight loss goals for women.
The Ideal Protein weight loss program is a recommended means of efficiently losing weight, stabilizing weight, and managing weight long-term for men and women of all ages. It is simple to stick to, and straightforward to track your progress. When employed as part of a greater commitment to reducing personal obesity, it can do a great deal for your health, including reducing high blood pressure, reducing susceptibility to certain cancers including breast cancer, colon cancer, and liver cancer, and reducing your risk of type 2 diabetes.
