The Ideal Protein Protocol is a weight loss protocol that was developed over two decades ago by French physician Dr. Tran Tien Chanh. His PhD in nutrition, sports medicine, and biology prompted the Ideal Protein method, specifically formulated to help athletes lose body fat without losing muscle. Since then, the method has evolved into a trusted and recognized brand among doctors and weight-loss aficionados. The ongoing weight-loss success of thousands is contributed to the Ideal Protein protocol. Some may call it magic, we call it science! Too often, we are caught up in the hype of celebrity weight loss brand endorsements and follow in the footsteps of thousands to failure. Ideal Protein is a personal journey to a new lifestyle that puts you in control and promotes long-term weight loss and education.

Phase One

By restricting carbohydrate intake, the Weight Loss Phase is designed to optimize fat loss through ketosis (a safe and natural state in which the body mobilizes stored fat as its alternative energy source). You’ll remain in Phase 1 until you have reached your weight loss goal

Phase Two

Following weight loss, the body fights to regain lost weight. This “energy gap”, where more calories are desired than required, makes weight loss difficult to manage and maintain. Stabilization is about narrowing this gap by adjusting the intake of protein/fat/carbs to effectively manage hunger, promote greater satiety and maintain weight loss. Weekly follow-up sessions over the course of two months or more are designed to monitor carbohydrate reintroduction and track weight

Phase Three

For the first 12 months following Stabilization, you will continue to receive education and support from your coach and clinic. It’s also recommended to “check in” regularly with your coach during this period. In addition, you will also have the option to stay connected to your coach and clinic through the app and Wi-Fi scale. For all of those in Maintenance, two semi-annual “tune-ups” are strongly encouraged
