What is the Ideal Protein Program?
Created by Dr Tran Tien Chanh, the Ideal Protein diet is aimed at creating a weight loss program that focuses on consuming the ideal amount of protein. Not only the right amount , but the right types of protein – it also restricts carb & sugar intakes, until your ideal weight is achieved.
The Ideal Protein program is split into four phases – these are outlined below:
- Phase one – lasting anywhere from 2-6 weeks, phase 1 consists of eating 3 x Ideal Protein meals, and one meal you make yourself. Your self made meal must be low sugar, low fat and low carbs, and contain plenty of fresh vegetables. Also, consume a lot of water (ideally 2L per day).
- Phase 2 – decrease the number of Ideal Protein meals by one, meaning 2 IP meals and 2 you’ve prepared yourself, again focusing on the same principles as phase 1 – high in protein, but a small amount of lean dairy products are allowed back into the diet, while calorie intake is kept relatively low along with carbs & fats.
- Phase 3 – You can introduce some carbs back into your diet, along with some fats, and this runs for around 14 days – by this point you’ll have made significant strides in terms of how you think about food, and how you prepare food. You’ll be on one Ideal Protein meal per day, and the rest are self-prepared meals.
- Phase 4 – Carry on doing what you’re doing! Eat well, eat plenty of the right proteins, with a small amount of carbs. The best bit about phase 4 is that you’re allowed an “indulgence day”, where you can eat whatever the hell you like – this helps ensure you don’t fall back into old eating habits. Phase 4 is all about maintenance of what you’ve learnt through the support of your local Ideal Protein rep, the meal plans and your exercise program. The key is to remember to keep fats and carbs separate and stick to regular portion sizes.
