Besides looking and feeling great, why is maintaining a healthy weight so important? As multiple scientific studies report, maintaining a healthy weight can help you prevent and control many diseases and unwanted health-related conditions. Carrying extra weight puts you at an increased risk of developing life-threatening conditions, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, breathing problems, and some cancers. This is the main reason your doctors will continue to stress the importance of maintaining a healthy weight. Of course, reducing risk of disease is just one reason to manage a healthy weight—without excess weight, you will look better, feel better and enjoy more boundless energy to appreciate life.
As so many struggle with what foods to eat, portion control and how to prepare healthful meals, the North Carolina Hormone Institute is proud to offer Ideal Protein, a results-driven weight loss regimen carefully designed to ensure lasting success. This physician-guided weight loss program incorporates home-cooked meals in conjunction with a wide variety of program (purchased) meals using the Ideal Protein formula. Weekly visits and ongoing support from your health coach ensure your success.
The body uses carbohydrates as its first source of energy to keep it running. If there is always a steady supply of carbs, the body will neglect stored fat reserves as a fuel source. Thus the core principle of the Ideal Protein protocol is to deplete the carbohydrate reserves thereby compelling the body into consuming its fat reserves to burn calories as a fuel source.
To encourage the body to burn fat for fuel while maintaining muscle mass at the same time, you supply the body with high quality protein foods. There is where Ideal Protein can help. These foods allow for optimal protein absorption. By protecting muscle mass with the high protein absorption rate, you are assured that your body will continue to burn calories after the dieting phase has been successfully completed.
On top of that as part of the Ideal Protein plan, you will be guided to add nutrient-rich supplements with beneficial nutrients that might otherwise be found in foods that are restricted on the Ideal Protein protocol. These supplements aid in muscle building and electrolyte balance.
The quality of protein used in reaching a healthy weight is vital for success. To assist you in attaining your goals without feeling deprived or dissatisfied with your meal choices, Ideal Protein foods contain protein with a very high biological value. Additional conveniences and benefits of these meals include:
The program begins with an individualized consultation then weekly visits with your weight loss coach are scheduled to monitor progress.
