The body has three sources of energy from which it draws to meet its metabolic needs; carbohydrates, muscle, and fat. Chronologically, the body will first draw on its carbohydrate reserve before turning to muscle and fat.
During the weight loss phases of the weight loss method, we limit carbohydrate intake to encourage the body to turn to its muscle and fat components for energy.
By eating high biological protein foods, the protocol helps to support muscle mass and teaches you how to develop smarter eating habits and lifestyle choices. This will help to help maintain your weight after weight loss is achieved.
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method is not a high-protein diet… it simply offers a variety of good, quality, protein-based foods that are easily assimilated.
Our medically designed weight loss method, Ideal Protein, was developed in Europe over 25 years ago!
