Weight Loss Q & A

San Marcos Family Medicine

What is the Ideal Protein weight loss program?

The Ideal Protein weight loss program blends medically-supervised weight loss and healthy lifestyle education to help patients not only lose weight but also keep it off. The Ideal Protein method teaches the body to live off its fat reserves, thus speeding weight loss through the burning of fat, not muscle. It uses meal replacement followed by education to teach patients how to maintain results with the foods they cook at home.

How does Ideal Protein differ from other protein-based weight loss methods?

Ideal Protein works to transform the body's ability to metabolize sugar by encouraging the pancreas to metabolize just the right amount of insulin. It reduces carbohydrates and fats, but not protein, helping to preserve muscle tissue and organs as the body loses fat.

Most portions have as much as 20 grams of protein, which is significantly more than most competitors. It's less toxic than other protein diets because it contains no GMOs, no aspartame, no trans fats, and less saturated fat. The protein used is a high biological protein that has 8 essential amino acids for better absorption.

What is involved in the Ideal Protein program?

Ideal Protein is medically managed, which means it's offered through San Marcos Family Medicine to ensure patients are following the protocols well and maintaining good health. The process involves 4 phases that span the course of 1 year.

Phase 1 takes the patient to 80% of the weight loss goal through a high protein, low-carb, low-fat, extremely controlled diet. This is followed by phase 2, in which the patient changes the diet in preparation for maintenance while losing the remaining 20%. Phase 3 is maintenance, in which the patient learns how to eat to maintain the weight loss. Phase 4 is stabilization, when more foods are introduced to create a lifetime of wellness. Throughout this process, the San Marcos Family Medicine team will supervise the results and the foods consumed.

Is the Ideal Protein weight loss program safe?

Yes, unless a patient has a dysfunctional liver or kidneys, the protocol is safe. An alternative diet's available for those with Type 1 diabetes. Pregnant or nursing moms shouldn't use the diet, but can use the protein foods to supplement their existing healthy diet.

How much weight loss is common?

Patients who follow the Ideal Protein protocols can lose significant amounts of weight in the early stages.Women lose average 2-2.5  pounds weekly, and men lose average 3-3.5 pounds weekly.
