Our weight loss center (OR clinic for a US site) recommends the Ideal Protein Protocol. Ideal Protein is backed by over 10 years of success and has a heavy focus on weight management after your initial weight loss. This comes in the form of education and smarter eating retraining. Without these elements, you are likely to regain your lost weight. In fact, according to the National Institutes of Health, dieters regain almost all of their lost weight within 5 years after dieting. Have you had that experience?
The Ideal Protein Method attacks the root cause of weight gain...your body’s over abundance of insulin. Insulin is produced by the pancreas. Its primary function is to regulate blood sugar levels, however, it is also the hormone that facilitates the transport of fat (triglycerides) into the fat cells. Even worse, it "locks" the fat in the fat cell, preventing it from being used as a source of energy. Now, because the blood sugar has dropped (and we can’t access the fat as a fuel source) it creates "sugar cravings' and the vicious cycle begins again. In other words, an over abundance of insulin causes weight gain.
Therefore, the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method limits carbohydrates forcing the body into burning fat stores to provide energy. As daily carbohydrate intake is limited and your body’s need for insulin is sharply reduced, your pancreas (the body’s producer of insulin) is given an opportunity to rest.
