A Medically Developed Weight Loss Method With a Beginning, a Middle and an End…
This Is The Ideal Protein Method:
Anyone who has ever tried can attest to the challenge of losing weight and keeping it off. The obesity epidemic in North America is fast becoming a worldwide problem, and millions of people are daily struggling with the problems— both physical and psychological—associated with excessive weight.
Naturally, the effort to shed those excess pounds is a worldwide obsession. Diets of every kind abound. Billions of dollars are spent annually on innumerable “diet” programs, yet obesity continues to haunt us.
The problem with such programs is that most of them miss the mark when it comes to the crucial component of weight loss—the regulation of blood sugars and the hormones necessary to correct the blood sugar imbalance caused by the typical North American diet of carbohydrates and sugars.
Here at the Back and Body Wellness Centre, we know that weight loss can only succeed over the long term when a person takes control of how his or her body metabolizes food, and the reality is there is only one way to gain control; that is to re-think the kinds of food consumed as part of one’s daily eating regimen.
It’s because of this, after careful and considerable research, that the Back and Body Wellness Centre chose the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method as the core of its weight loss program. The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method is a medically designed protocol that results in rapid fat loss without depleting lean body mass, and it works because it targets the hormones that trigger the components of the body that regulate fat absorption and release.
Developed more than 25 years ago in France by Dr. Tran Tien Chanh, MD, PhD, the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method is the result of years of nutrition research related to obesity and its treatment. This method is being used successfully at more than 3,000 facilities around the world today.
As noted, the reason the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method works is because it targets that part of the body’s endocrine system (specifically the pancreas) that controls how fat is absorbed and released.
As Dr. Tran Tien notes: “The cause of many weight issues in a modern society is insulin dysfunction. A diet grossly disproportionate in 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.”
Too much insulin can lead to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). This can induce ongoing sugar cravings, which creates a need to eat sugary, carbohydrate-laden foods. The weight gain takes place because another function of insulin is to transport fat (triglycerides) into the fat cells to be stored as energy. Trouble is, it locks that fat inside the cells to be used only in an emergency, i.e. when the body believes it is starving. Before “starvation” sets in, however, the body sends out hunger pangs and sugar cravings, and because food is so readily accessible to most North Americans it’s way too easy to satisfy those cravings, and so the cycle continues.
So how can a person break that cycle?
It’s a good question… and the answer awaits in the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method offered at the Back and Body Wellness Centre.
The principle behind the Ideal Protein system is rather straightforward: target fat loss by training the body to live off it’s own fat reserves.
This means the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method is not just a plan for changing your eating habits, but also an educational program designed to teach you how your body functions in order to create long-term understanding of why these changes will make a difference, and how the changes will sustain weight loss over the long term.
In rough terms it goes like this:
The body employs energy from three reserves: glycogen (carbohydrate), protein and fats. The body starts by depleting simple and complex carbohydrate reserves. It then turns simultaneously to protein and fat reserves for energy.
One would think that simultaneous burning of protein and fat would keep things on an even keel, except that the body takes up energy reserves in very specific order.
It starts with blood glucose and then moves on to glycogen reserves. Only after these are exhausted does the body begin burning muscle and fat for energy. Naturally, if one perpetuates the cycle by feeding the body the simple and complex sugars it keeps demanding, the system never gets to the fat-burning stage, and so stored fats are never consumed. Insulin and glycogen, two critical metabolic hormones, determine how the body shifts energy, and if carbohydrates can be restricted, then they’ll allow fat to be burned, and weight loss will occur quickly and efficiently.
It was mentioned that muscle and fat burning occur at the same time, so the obvious question is: How can you prevent muscle deterioration while burning fat? Again, the answer is the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method offered at the Back and Body Wellness Centre.
Our program is specifically designed to ensure that what you eat promotes fat burning while preserving muscle mass. By focusing on quality proteins, this program allows effective protein absorption to prevent the burning of energy in muscle tissue. Our program also provides the nutrient-rich supplements necessary for muscle building and electrolyte creation.
With the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method you’ll experience:
- Structured weight loss while supporting muscle mass.
- An understanding of how food affects and is utilized by the body, including what causes fat storage.
- Weekly one-on-one coaching, lifestyle education, and guidance.
- A personalized approach to setting weight loss goals, based on your health profile.
How do we know it works? Because we’ve been there.
Manny Pannu, manager at Back and Body Wellness Centre, has personally experienced the Ideal Protein program and he knows it works. He states:
“I want to help people achieve the same kinds of results I did. I know there are many people out there who don’t need our program, but I love it when those who do come to me afterwards and say, ‘I’m so happy you were able to help me finally lose the weight and keep it off.’”
“For those interested, there is no initial consultation fee so you have no reason not to come for a visit to learn more about this life-changing program. If weight loss is one of your goals, if obesity is ruining your health, then we can likely help. Call today for an appointment.”
What the World Health Organization Has to Say About Obesity
- According to the World Health Organization (WHO) worldwide obesity has nearly doubled since 1980.
- In the early 1990’s, the World Health Organization (WHO) exposed obesity as a “predominantly social and environmental disease.”
- WHO also states that in 2008, 1.4 billion adults were overweight globally, and without action this figure will increase to 1.5 billion by the year 2015.
