Phases 1 and 2 place the focus on eating for weight loss by combining Ideal Protein meals and homemade meals, while phases 3 and 4 shift the focus to returning to normal eating while maintaining weight loss. Ideal Protein promotes weight loss by teaching clients to make healthier eating choices.
Phases 1 and 2 of the Ideal Protein diet plan provide meals high in quality proteins while restricting simple and complex carbohydrates to guarantee that muscle mass is maintained, keeping metabolism high as the individual primarily loses fat and reaches a predetermined goal weight.
Phases 3 and 4 allow the client to slowly reintroduce previously reduced carbohydrates and fats as well as phase out packaged Ideal Protein meals. Ideal Protein then encourages the individual to return to normal eating with healthier habits.
The four-phase approach aims to reprogram the body into burning its fat reserves for fuel rather than demanding carbohydrate intake as its primary source of energy. Throughout the process, participants gain knowledge in diet and nutrition and build healthier habits that help maintain their weight loss for a lifetime.
Weekly coaching is provided with membership, and a full line of meals, snacks, drinks and supplements are available to maximize success.
