There are three distinct phases of the Ideal Protein protocol. Each step is designed to help you with your weight loss goals and build a healthier life.
1. Reset your body. Burn fat. Lose weight.
- Restrict the intake of carbohydrates
- Maximize fat loss via ketosis (a natural way to safely burn fat stores in the body for energy)
- Preserve muscle mass
- Continue losing weight until you reach your goals and move into phase 2
- The length of time for this phase depends on your weight goals and overall health
2. Reset your mind. Healthy weight maintenance. Develop healthy habits.
- Maintain weight loss with proper nutrition adjustments
- Inhibit the body’s signals to regain weight following restriction
- Learn to appropriately manage your hunger
- Recognize both hunger and satiety cues
- Receive dynamic support throughout the process to maximize the benefits of weight loss while reintroducing foods that were restricted in phase 1
- This phase is typically around 2 months long
3. Reset what’s possible. Live your best healthiest life. Thrive!
- Continued support and education from your Ideal Protein clinic and coach
- Schedule regular check ins with your coach (at least 2 semi-annual tune-ups are highly recommended)
- Keep yourself accountable by staying in touch with your coach
- Reap the benefits of a life filled with potential to do what you love most
- No longer let your weight or energy levels affect your quality of life
