Ideal ProteinTM Weight Loss

Losing weight is often difficult – but keeping the weight off and forming new healthy habits for the long term can be nearly impossible to do by yourself. The Medical Spa of Baton Rouge has partnered with Ideal ProteinTM to offer our clients a weight loss system that combines a safe (FDA approved), medically designed diet that includes ongoing support of a personal weight-loss coach.

What is Ideal ProteinTM?

A carbohydrate-controlled weight loss program that allows your body to burn fat as its primary fuel source instead of carbohydrates, Ideal Protein was introduced to the United States in 2008 following a successful 23-year history in Canada. It is available in more than 3,000 independent clinics worldwide and is backed by thousands of international health professionals. The program includes high-quality protein food products and regular, personalized coaching, and is vegetarian friendly and available to those with dairy sensitivities.

The cause of many weight issues in a modern society is insulin dysfunction. A diet grossly   disproportionate in its share of saturated fats and sugars, such as in breads, cereals, muffins, cakes, pastries, pasta, pizza, rice, corn – very much like the North American diet – causes the pancreas to produce an overabundance of insulin, which stays in the system and puts the blood sugar level in a negative balance.” – Dr. Tran Tien

How Does It Work?

Ideal Protein was developed two decades ago by Dr. Tran Tien Chanh, who focused his career and research on nutrition with a particular emphasis on the treatment of obesity and obesity-related issues. Dr. Tran found that an overproduction of insulin could cause constant sugar cravings and weight gain. Ideal Protein’s success relies heavily on the high quality protein in its products, which increases a feeling of satisfaction and can prevent cravings.

How Do I Get Started?

During an initial weight loss assessment, your personal weight loss coach will help you determine your targeted goal weight. The Ideal Protein weight loss method then provides a step-by-step process to help you achieve your weight loss goal, and maintain a stable weight after dieting based on education and lifestyle adjustments. During the process, you will learn:
