Principles Behind The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method

The body has three sources of energy from which it draws to meet the 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 protocol, we limit carbohydrate intake to encourage the body to turn to its fat and muscle components for energy. By eating high biological protein foods, the protocol helps to support muscle mass and teaches dieters how to develop smarter eating habits and lifestyle choices so they can maintain a stable weight after weight loss is achieved.

More Than Weight Loss

Our medically designed protocol was developed in Europe over 25 years ago. Many of the following issues have been associated with obesity. Losing weight may help with the following conditions.

Health Risks of Obesity

– Hypertension
– High Blood Pressure
– Type 2 Diabetes
– Stroke
– Gallbladder Disease
– Osteoarthritis
– Sleep Apnea (or other breathing problems)
– Mental health problems (low self esteem and/or depression)

Reset BODY. Reset MIND. Reset POSSIBLE.

With the 3-Phase Ideal Protein Protocol.

Phase 1: Reset BODY to BURN FAT and LOSE THE WEIGHT.

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.


Following weight loss, you’ll be coached to slowly reintroduce carbs and healthy fats, and you’ll receive a unique-to-you Macro Code based on the number of macronutrients you need to help you maintain your new healthy weight and effectively manage hunger.

Phase 3: Reset POSSIBLE and live your FULLEST, HEALTHIEST, BEST LIFE yet.

For the first 12 months following Stabilization, you will continue to receive education and support from your coach and clinic as part of the Maintenance Phase. Your coach will provide support and guide healthy food choices for life introducing new strategies each visit on nutrition, healthy eating patterns, behavior change, and environment. Your coach continues to help you incorporate your Macro Code to maintain health long-term. You can stay connected to your coach through our app and Wi-Fi scale, incorporating “Tune-ups” as needed.
