Core Principles of Ideal Protein Protocol
One of the core principles of the protocol is protecting vital lean mass while the body unlocks stored fat for energy.
The body has 3 energy reserves: glycogen , muscle, and fat. The core principle of the Ideal Protein Protocol is to deplete the glycogen reserves completely in order to compel the body into consuming its fat reserve to burn calories.
Our first source of energy is Glycogen. After 3 days of reducing the intake of carbohydrates, the body depletes the Glycogen reserve and simultaneously goes to the protein and fat reserves for energy.
How do we encourage the body to burn its fat reserves, but support its muscle mass reserves if both are depleted simultaneously?
If you lose muscle while dieting, you may impair your ability to burn calories post-diet, as your body uses muscle mass to burn calories. The muscle is protected by consuming our high quality protein foods, thus forcing the body to only use the stored fat as energy. Learn More >>

Improve Your Cholesterol, Reduce Medications, and More
Our clients have lost fat and retained important lean body mass; lowered cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure levels; reduced medications; and learned how to keep off the fat they lost with healthy habits for a better lifestyle. We can help you achieve these results, too!
Lose Fat, Not Lean Mass
It is important what we lose when we are dieting. By just counting calories (like most other diets do), we are starving ourselves and losing healthy lean mass that allows us to burn calories so that we do not regain fat. In the book Biomarkers by Evans and Rosenberg, research showed that the most critical bio marker for good health and longevity is high lean body mass and low body fat percentage. Healthy fat percentage for women is 24 to 30% and 15 to 20% for men. With Ideal Protein, you will lose fat, not lean mass, which is important for your health.
Once the dieter begins the program, it takes about 3 days for your glycogen stores to be used up and then the body preferentially burns fat for its fuel. Since there are very low carbohydrates provided, lean muscle mass is spared as the diet supplies high quality proteins, resulting in regulated blood sugar levels, no cravings, and inches and pounds lost. You’ll still be able to eat the foods you crave – check out all of the foods Ideal Protein offers!
Our weight loss program is designed for success both in losing weight and keeping it off. Personal coaching each week gives accountability and structure and the diet itself is scientific in origin so that your weight loss is consistent. You have a personal weigh-in with your coach weekly to guide you and educate you about your program and measure your accomplishments. We weigh, measure, and do a body composition analysis to make sure that you are losing fat and maintaining important lean mass. Meet our Coaches >>
Permanent Lifestyle Change
Once you have met your weight loss goal, we continue to guide and educate you about making healthy dietary choices that will help you maintain your correct body composition. Whatever we lose, it is important that we keep it off. This step is about maintaining a healthy lifestyle with good eating habits, exercise, enough sleep, and relaxation to reduce stress in our lives. Learn More About Stabilization >>
