The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method is a medically designed protocol containing 2 key components – sensible weight loss and sustainable, stable weight maintenance. Our protocol has evolved for over 20 years, but was originally developed over 2 decades ago by Dr. Tran Tien Chanh who focused his career and research on nutrition with a particular emphasis on the treatment of obesity and obesity related issues.
The 4-phase protocol helps stabilize the pancreas and blood sugar levels with a structured meal and lifestyle program, while burning fat and supporting lean muscle tissue. This protocol is the recommended weight loss method in over 3,000 Professional Establishments in North America.
Based on over a decade of success the Ideal Protein Protocol enables the following:
Structured weight loss while supporting muscle mass
An understanding of how food affects and is utilized by the body, including what causes fat storage
Utilization of stored fat for energy usually by day 4
Improved energy, appetite control and reduced cravings — usually on day 4 or 5
Losing weight can improve blood sugar, cholesterol levels and reduce blood pressure

According to Dr. Tran Tien, "The cause of most weight issues in a modern society is insulin dysfunction. A diet grossly disproportionate in its share of saturated fats and sugars, such as in breads, cereals, muffins, cakes, pastries, pasta, pizza, rice, corn - very much like the North American diet - causes the pancreas to produce an overabundance of insulin, which stays in the system and puts the blood sugar level in a negative balance."
An overproduction of insulin also leads to hypoglycemia or low glycemia, which in turn induces constant sugar cravings and weight gain. Insulin’s 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 to be 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.
The Ideal Protein protocol will give your pancreas a well-deserved break by limiting simple and complex carbs until your weight loss goal is achieved.
