Weight loss: Ideal Protein, Starts Here
“Ideal Protein is a weight-loss program that helps you lose weight without compromising your muscle mass.’ says Dr. Aatif Siddiqui, founder of Esprit Wellness Clinic in New York City, NY.
Per the company’s website:
“Simple and complex carbohydrates can prevent weight loss. The body stores approximately three days worth of carbohydrates, therefore, our protocol restricts sugars (simple and complex) until 100% of your weight loss goal is achieved…why? Because, as long as sugar is being consumed, your body may not be burning fat. Remember, the first source of energy is derived from glycogen (carbohydrate) reserves. Therefore, the core principle of the Ideal Protein Protocol is to deplete the glycogen (carbohydrate) reserves completely, in order to compel the body into consuming its fat reserve to burn calories.
How do we encourage the body to burn its fat reserves, but support its muscle mass reserves if both are depleted simultaneously? First, Ideal Protein foods are made with high quality protein. The quality of protein used in Ideal Protein diet products has an impact on effective protein absorption…the lower the quality, the lower the absorption. If protein absorption is low, you may not be able to protect your muscle mass and thus you will burn muscle along with fat. If you lose muscle while dieting, you may impair your ability to burn calories post-diet, as your body uses muscle mass to burn calories.
Secondly, our dieters use our nutrient-rich supplements such as Natura Multi-Vita, Natura Calcium & Magnesium and Natura Potassium, key ingredients in muscle building and electrolytes. These supplements replace those normally found in foods restricted on the Ideal Protein protocol.
Dr. Sid notes, “The program is popular for a few reasons: First, the food is delicious and balanced. Approximately, 1/2 of your meals come from Ideal Protein’s inventory while you buy the remainder, including vegetables, leafy greens, and lean protein.” “Secondly, it satisfies our desire for instant-gratification,” observes Marlene Oliva Director of Esprit Wellness who has used the method. She explains, “By eating only veggies, lean protein, and Ideal Protein products, you lose the weight, fast”. Dr. Sid confirms, “Provided you heed to your customized meal plans, you will see results, weekly.” “Finally, perhaps of greatest value, we offer a built-in support system to ensure you stay on track”, concludes Dr. Sid.
