What is Ideal Protein?
How does Ideal Protein work?
- Phase 1– Weight Loss
- Phase 2– Pre-Stabilization
- Phase 3– Pre-Stabilization and gradual reintroduction of healthy carbohydrates and fat
- Phase 4– Maintenance
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. This normal metabolic process is called ketosis. By eating protein foods, the Protocol helps to support muscle mass and teaches you how to develop smarter eating habits and lifestyle choices, to help maintain your weight after weight loss is achieved.

How much protein should I be eating per day?

Your coach will be the best person to help you determine the amount of protein you should be consuming daily.
Why are protein foods so vital?
Protein foods are so vital because they make our bodies the way they are. Your immune system, vital organs, eyes, nails, hair, skin and your muscles all are made of protein. Powering our bodies are our muscles – the engines that burn calories and help us lose weight. The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn. The more calories you burn, the more fat you burn. That’s why men lose weight faster than women, because typically men have greater muscle mass than women.
