Ideal Protein Weight Loss Results

If you are interested in losing weight for your general health, Ideal Protein is one avenue that is worth considering. This ketogenic diet plan helps you lose weight by reducing calorie intake and emphasizing an adequate amount of protein. The goal of the Ideal Protein diet is to trigger a body state called ketosis, which makes your body burn fat stores instead of the sugars overrepresented in the average Western diet. Unlike typical keto diets, though, the Ideal Protein weight loss program also restricts foods that are high in fat, reasoning that this makes it easier to activate ketosis.

This diet was pioneered over 20 years ago by Dr. Tran Tien Chanh, and has wide support from a range of health professionals, from pharmacists to osteopaths to cardiologists. It is also available through the Holistic Healing Heart Center in Burbank, under the supervision of Los Angeles heart specialist, Cynthia Thaik, M.D. Given that 2022 presents new and compelling reasons to prioritize better health, there has never been a better time to pursue weight loss with a guided diet program.

What is the Ideal Protein Diet Plan?

Ideal Protein - Weight Loss Results

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 faster weight loss 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 for Women to Lose Weight?

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 affecting weight loss that make it more difficult for women than men.

Physiological Factors:

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).

Social Factors:

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.

Psychological Factors:

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.
