History of Ideal Protein Weight Loss
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method is a medically designed procedure that facilitates weight loss without diminishing muscle mass, and it's been successful in Europe and North America for more than 20 years.
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method was developed in France over 20 years ago by Dr. Tran Tien Chanh, who studied nutrition, focusing particularly on the treatment of obesity and obesity related issues.
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method helps stabilize the pancreas and blood sugar levels while burning fat and maintaining muscle and other lean tissue. So don't worry about losing muscle mass if you go on the Ideal Protein diet.

As you probably know (and have heard in school health classes), America is the country with the highest obese population. Obesity is a serious health issue that can cause a range of illnesses, including:
- High hypertension
- Type II diabetes
- Cardiovascular diseases
- Respiratory diseases
- Gallbladder diseases
- Some types of cancers
According to the Surgeon General of the United States, the number of overweight children has doubled and the number of overweight adolescents has tripled in the U.S. since 1980.
How did we become the country with the largest obesity rate per capita and some of the largest healthcare costs per person? A major reason is what we eat! Increased consumption of food with low amounts of nutrients and energy with high levels of sugar and saturated fats has helped contribute to the state our society is in – an "obesity epidemic" according to the World Health Organization. But diet isn't the only thing! Our poor health is also caused by lack of exercise and high levels of stress.
Metabolic Syndrome and Ideal Protein
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method targets prevention and solutions for the Metabolic Syndrome (or Syndrome X). To qualify as part of this epidemic that we face, adults and children must suffer from at least 2 of the metabolic syndrome components:
- Diabetes (blood sugar issues)
- Cholesterol problems
- High blood pressure
And the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method helps improve obesity, cholesterol levels and blood pressure and lowers the risk of diabetes.
According to Dr. Tran Tien, the cause of most weight problems today is insulin dysfunction. A diet high in saturated fats and sugars (breads, cereals, pastries, pasta, rice, corn, etc.) results in the pancreas producing too much insulin, which stays in the system and causes blood sugar levels to dramatically drop.
How does this affect our weight? Well, excessive amounts of insulin lead to hypoglycemia or low glycemia, which induces constant sugar cravings and weight gain. Insulin regulates blood sugar levels and transports fat (triglycerides) into the fat cells. It then "locks" the fat in the fat cell, making it inaccessible as a fuel source. Because the blood sugar has dropped – and we can't use the fat as a source of energy – it creates sugar cravings…and the cycle continues. This is why insulation regulation is so critical!
And this is where Ideal Protein comes in! Ideal Protein will transform the body's ability to digest sugars properly by regulating insulin levels. It does this by giving the pancreas a break and cutting out both simple and complex carbohydrates until you reach your weight loss goal.
Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method Details
The principals behind the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method include:
- Learning to live off the body's fat reserves
- Getting more nutrients (which are essential in building muscle)
Living off the body's fat reserves – the body uses energy from three reserves: glycogen (carbohydrate), protein and fats. Until 100% of the weight loss goal is achieved, we restrict both simple and complex sugars because as long as sugar is being consumed, the body is not burning fat. Your body first uses energy from glycogen (carbohydrate) reserves. The main principle is to completely deplete the carbohydrate reserves so the body will use its fat reserves 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? Ideal Protein facilitates this by providing foods with biologically complete proteins that include 8 essential amino acids.
Nutrients – on the Ideal Protein diet, you get nutrient supplements, including Natura Multi-Vita, Natura Calcium & Magnesium and Natura Potassium, all of which help build muscle. Not only will you lose weight using Ideal Protein, but you'll also feel energized and strong.
The Ideal Protein Diet
The Ideal Protein diet, as the name suggests, is protein-rich and uses five proteins with high biological value – whey isolates, soy isolates, whole milk protein, albumin and hydrolyzed collagen. This gives the client many options and is designed to accommodate vegetarians and people with sensitivities to dairy and soy. There is something for everybody in the Ideal Protein diet – it includes foods that are crunchy, chewy, hearty, smooth, sweet, spicy, salty…the list goes on! Each meal contains up to 20 grams of protein with very little fat or sugar – sometimes none at all! Don't have time to cook dinner every night? Don't worry – Ideal Protein diet meals are super easy to prepare – and there are many frozen meals available that simply need to be heated up.
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method isn't like those diets that claim you'll lose 15 or 20 pounds in a week – which can actually be dangerous. On the Ideal Protein diet, women lose about 3 to 4 pounds per week while men lose 4 to 7.
The benefits of the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method extend beyond loss of body fat. Other results of Ideal Protein Weight Loss include:
- Muscle mass enhancement
- Better understanding of how food affects and is used by the body, including what causes fat storage
- Cellulite reduction (including cellulite that contains chemical toxins)
- More energy
- Better appetite control and reduced cravings (usually after a few days!)
- Improved blood sugar
- Lower cholesterol levels
- Lower blood pressure
Though it may sound like it, Ideal Protein isn't too good to be true! You can start the diet today and start losing weight in a healthy way!
