Weight Management and Healthy Living
Whether you are currently suffering from health issues, or you are at risk or concerned about potential health problems in the future due to being overweight, or maybe you just want to generally feel better, we are excited to introduce you to the Ideal Protein Weight Loss protocol.
Core Principles of Ideal Protein Program
Ideal Protein is a medically developed ketogenic weight loss protocol overseen by our qualified medical professionals to ensure the best and safest results.
One of the keys to our success is the one-on-one coaching our clients receive each week. Having a coach guide our clients through the program, motivating, encouraging and customizing what their diet should look like in the long term is a proven strategy in helping our clients lose weight and keep it off.
Coaches work with clients to educate how body fat is burned through ketosis, the relationship between insulin and weight gain, foods best for weight management, and how the combinations of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins play a role in achieving and maintaining the optimal and healthy weight.
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol consists of 3 distinctive phases:
Phase 1 – Achieving 100% of your weight loss through a supervised, safe ketogenic diet.
By restricting carbohydrate intake, the Weight Loss Phase is designed to optimize fat loss through ketosis (a safe and natural state in which the body mobilizes stored fat as its alternative energy source). You’ll remain in Phase 1 until you have reached your weight loss goal.
Phase 2 – Learning the fundamentals of food and stabilizing your new weight.
Following weight loss, the body fights to regain the lost weight. Stabilization phase is about adjusting the intake of protein/fat/carbs to effectively manage hunger, promote greater satiety and maintain the weight loss. Weekly follow-up sessions over the course of two months or more are designed to monitor carbohydrate reintroduction and track weight.
Phase 3 – Ongoing support to help you maintain your optimal and healthy weight.
For the first 12 months following Stabilization, you will continue to be supported by your Coach and will receive ongoing education and strategies for maintaining a healthy weight. In addition to clinic visits you will also have the option to stay connected to your coach and clinic through the app and Wi-Fi scale.
