Ideal Protein is a medical weight Loss Program that was originally developed by a French M.D.—Dr. Chanh Tran Tien— to secure the muscle mass of high-performance athletes and regulate their insulin levels. This 4-stage eating plan helps stabilize blood sugar levels while burning fat and maintaining muscle mass and aims at long-term health promotion and weight control. Based on over 23 years of experience and 5 million people in Europe, Canada, and now in the United States, the program enables

  • Quick weight loss without sacrificing muscle mass
  • Utilization of fat for energy
  • Appetite control and reduced craving
  • Improves blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure
How it Works

Ideal Protein is not a high protein diet but provides the optimal amount of protein, while being low in carbohydrates and fat. The goals of Ideal Protein is to cause the body to delve into its energy reserves—into stored fat—thereby facilitating fat loss. The typical American diet stresses the pancreas as it must constantly pump out insulin to take care of the high amount of sugars and carbohydrates. Excess insulin promotes sugar craving, as it can cause a drop in the blood sugar level (hypoglycemia). Even more importantly, insulin—the fat storage hormone—converts the calories you’ve consumed into stored fat. Consequently, an overproduction of insulin leads to excess fat storage .Ideal Protein is low in carbohydrates and fat with no trans fats, no aspartame and is MSG-free. After approximately three days on Ideal Protein, glycogen reserves are depleted and the body begins to burn stored fat for energy. This results in the production of ketones that provide energy and are natural appetite suppressants thus preventing food cravings. As stored fat becomes the first source of energy, you will start losing weight. By supplying all essential amino acids, you will maintain your muscle mass which is the engine that burns calories every minute of the day.
The 4 Stages

Due to using pre-packaged meals, Ideal Protein allows you to lose weight in a relatively simple and convenient way.

Stage 1: You start out using a packet as the basis of 3 of your 4 meals each day.  You eat a low-carb, low-fat “regular” dinner (fresh vegetables + lettuce + protein of your choice.) You are in Stage 1 this until you have reached 70-80% of your weight loss goal.

Stage 2: You reduce the Ideal foods to 2 per day, eating 2 low-carb, low-fat “regular” meals –fresh vegetables + lettuce + protein of your choice—until you’ve reached 100% of your goal.

Stage 3: For weight loss stabilization, you will re-introduce moderate amounts of fats and carbohydrates to your diet for 14 days. You only have 1 Ideal packet per day with 2 other regular meals.

Stage 4: By this time you have learned to eat in a healthy fashion, choosing the right foods and food combinations.  As a result, you are able to maintain your ideal weight.

  • High blood pressure is twice as common in adults who are obese than in those who maintain a healthy weight.
  • A weight gain of 11 to 18 pounds increases the risk for developing type II diabetes to twice that of those who maintain a healthy weight.
  • Being overweight is associated with an increased risk for some types of cancer including endometrial, colon, gallbladder, prostrate and kidney.
  • Sleep Apnea, which causes interrupted breathing during sleep, is more common in obese persons.
