What to Know About Medical Weight Loss
To understand how to lose weight, we often must look at the root cause of weight gain. Much of the problem with weight gain and loss stems from diets in North American. People are eating a higher percentage of saturated fats and sugars in products such as breads, cereals, muffins, cakes, pies, pasta, and pizza. This diet creates too much insulin in the body. The overproduction of insulin can cause hypoglycemia or low glycemia, induce constant sugar cravings, and cause weight gain. Blood sugar levels are regulated by a person’s insulin, but it’s also the hormone that directs the fat into the cells. Once the fat is locked into the fat cell, it isn’t able to be used as a source of energy.
The main principle of ideal protein is that the body will learn to live off its fat reserves. The body gets energy from three reserves:
- Glycogen (carbohydrates)
Carbohydrates, whether complex or simple, are the first source of energy before turning to protein, then fat. Our protocol, until you achieve your weight loss goal, restricts sugars (simple and complex) since the body stores three days’ worth of carbs. As long as you consume sugar, your body may not be burning fat.
Through our system, we compel the body into consuming its fat reserve to burn calories. This is the core principle of the Ideal Protein protocol.
Weight loss doesn’t just impact your health through slimming down your waistline, but we find countless other benefits for our patients including the correction of ongoing health issues. Often times, losing weight and getting into better shape is not only a cosmetic action but also a powerful solution to mitigating chronic pain! Many of our clients have been able to remove themselves from years of medication being used to treat their ailments by better managing their weight.
