The Ideal Protein Diet Review

Word On The Street About IDEAL PROTEIN Program

Have to admit they have a decent social following and many fans that claim it has helped them achieve and maintain their weight loss goals.

Oh yes, it works. You do not have to exercise because your food intake is so limited. I think Ideal Protein should improve the crap they sell you. I find most of it unappetizing. No refund or exchange in any way if you do not like it. If I had known all this before I started, I would have found another way to do this. I hate doing this because the supplemental protein tastes so disgusting!Linda R

There are many customer comments available online. Some were satisfied with their weight loss results and some more diet savvy people were not impressed at all.

Low calorie intake sometimes results in loosing pounds.. did not work for me … the products are very expensive so of course you will eat less ! The bars are great but at $30 for just 7 bars – 😬 products are also mostly soy – which are bad and cheap not to mention. So I’m not sure why it’s so expensive… I would say don’t even bother with this dietΒ Tracy

Another consumer who most likely understands the value of clean eating made a comment:

Works for the short term – bad for your body & lab tests will reveal how dangerous it can beAnna

Another consumer has a warning about the extremely low caloric intake:

This is one of the worst diets you can go on and it is expensive! You pay $400 for the first month. That only includes your first week of food. After that, you will be paying at least $120 a week for food.You will be eating about 500 calories a day. Of course you are going to lose weight. What happens when/if you reach your target weight. You are going to go back to the way you ate before the diet and naturally you are going to gain the weight back. This diet is NOT how you would normally eat. If you want to go on a sensible diet, reduce your portions and add protein to your diet. That way you will be eating how you normally eat, but you are just eating less.Renee M

How Much Does IDEAL PROTEIN Cost?

Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β CurrencyThe Ideal Protein cost is $325 for the first two weeks. Need to lose more? Make sure to take into the account that it will be costing you upwards of $400-$600 a month. to continue this seemingly easy but expensive weight loss style. The cost includes 3 prepackaged meals a day, supplements and initially a bottle shaker. Remember you will still be spending extra cash on that one meal and hopefully sharing it with someone because who wants to eat leftovers for 2 or more nights a week.

Ideal Protein Diet is and expensive four-phase diet that involves a one-on-one coaching with a health practitioner or trained consultant.

IDEAL PROTEIN Verdict

People Who Viewed  The IDEAL PROTEIN DIET Review  Also Viewed TRIM DOWN CLUB DIET Read Review

As a certified health coach I can tell you that lowering your calories, eliminating sugar and eating high protein meals will not only help you lose weight but will also help eliminate carbs and sugar cravings. I can also tell you that eating healthy, clean and nutritious meals can never be replaced by prepackaged meals. Consider learning how to cook and find a diet protocol that not only offers but encourages healthy eating while discouraging prepackaged, processed food consumption.

Bottom line is save your money and invest it in organic, clean food which will in turn not only make you healthier, build your immune system but will help you get rib of the unwanted weight for good instead of spending upwards of $600 dollars for a program that is not really geared towards health education or long term success.

About IDEAL PROTEIN Program

Developed by a Parisian physician Tran Tien Chanh who in his findings claimed that a standard North American diet causes pancreas to overproduce insulin leading to enhanced sugar cravings and therefore weight gain. If A plus B equals C, finding the solution to the underlying problem should not be that difficult. Change the diet and off you go with your new and improved self.

Solution that dr. Chanh came up with or developed, does seem somewhat simple:

  1. Eliminate sugar
  2. Teach the body to use stored fat, protein, and glycogen for energy
  3. Lose weight

Just like the A+B=C. Sounds very simple but is it? And how exactly does he suggest β€œtraining” the body?!

How Does IDEAL PROTEIN Work

If Ideal Protein is the diet you will choose to try you will first have to visit a local clinic. After the initial consultation, and determining how much weight you should lose, depending on your age, height and personal goals, you will be enrolled in a 4 Phase program.

Phase 1 – also called a β€œLifestyle Building” phase. This the initial phase where you are required to eat 3 prepackaged meals of choice from what Ideal Protein program offers. This is mandatory and cannot be substituted with a healthy, clean meals. It does ask for one home cooked meal which generally should be dinner. It should be very simple and lean: 8oz of protein and a side of veggies. This phase can last indefinitely, depending on your weight loss goals and needs.

Phase 2 – otherwise known as β€œIdeal Difference” phase. This Phase meant to last for a year after your weight loss goals have been achieved. Learning how to maintain your weight while still consuming Ideal Protein products.

Phase 3 – doing and implementing what you have learned during Phase 2.

Phase 4 – A phase that is called β€œLifestyle Living” and pretty much explaining itself. Maintaining your weight for life.

Is it me or does it sound that there aren’t really any phases other than lose the weight and maintain it?

Are There Side Effects With Ideal Protein Diet?

As with any high protein diet constipation would probably be the most obvious side effects possible but could be avoided by adding lots of fiber, exercise or using over the counter constipation relieving remedies. Smooth tea seems to be everyone’s favorite option as it is inexpensive and fast acting. These will work if you did not suffer from constipation prior to starting a high protein diet. Some other side effects may include:

Bloating

  • Bloating
  • Nausea
  • Upset Stomach
  • Irregular Bowel Movements

  1. Some issues with your comparisons here. South Beach and Atkins are REAL diets with REAL food. It was much later when the pre-packaged garbage came out. The only expense was the cost of the book and/or more cookbooks. Problem with the shakes and pre-packaged junk is they put a lot of garbage in them. Not only bad for us but some of us are allergic to ingredients!

  2. Interesting the decidedly negative review above (from someone who admittedly didn’t try the diet) compared with the popstive feedback here from people actually on the Ideal Protein diet. Like others, we have two friends that are MDs, did the Ideal Protein diet, and whole hardly recommended it. I lost the weight quickly, was never hungry, had substantially more energy, and noticed lowered blood pressure. The price is high; however, the key lies in the chemistry in what we eat. There are very specific vegetables (complex carbs, not no carbs as the review suggests) that must be eaten with nearly every meal. Those vegetables, along with lean protein of your choice and the Ideal Protein foods, keep a very specific chemistry balance that really burns up the fat. I previously was fully in the camp of “calories eaten minus more calories burned is the only way to lose weight”. I now respect the importance of proper chemistry in a diet to really make it work. I’ve tracked calories over the years, exercised regularly, and noticed weight loss. But the results from Ideal Protein are in a different league, I am sure due to the proper chemistry introduced here that I haven’t done in the past. I wish the food wasn’t so expensive, but in 2 months I was to my goal and waning off their food, per the plan.

  3. I have been doing Ideal Protein for 2 months, lost 20 pounds and for the first time EVER on a diet have found my figure! You are not required to buy the technology, the plan teaches a very sustainable and doable plan with real food as well as supporting you with their products. If you eat the vegetables you get plenty of fiber and learn a healthier approach to food. Green vegetables ARE carbs, they are just better put to use by our bodies than the high carbs like potatoes and bread. I believe my relationship with food is healthier and my choices are smarter since adapting this routine.

    • I am on Ideal Protein diet and have lost 20 pounds (2months) and feel great. I had blood work done and my cholesterol levels have improved, glucose level normal, liver function normal, kidney function normal In other words, the blood work is within range. I have no hair loss, my blood pressure is now 120/80 ( was 140/90). I have much more energy and my allergies are much better. I haven’t felt this good in years (I’m 70 years old). The key is to drink at least 2 Liters of water a day but I drink more to alleviate constipation

      • I’m about to start IP on February 1 and I am very excited. I have about 100 pounds to lose, and according to most everyone in my small town that has tried IP, it is highly successful. My own MD and his wife has even tried it and was successful. Thanks for the positive input!

  5. For diet food, the foods are great with fantastic variety. The choices for lean dinner protein is very wide and will please most dieters. Ideal Protein Diet Ranked as Best Diet of 2016! Study: Nickols-Richardson SM, et al. Perceived hunger is lower and weight loss is greater in overweight premenopausal women consuming a low-carbohydrate/high-protein vs high-carbohydrate/low-fat diet. Journal of the American Dietetic Association, 2005. Study: Volek JS, et al. Carbohydrate restriction has a more favorable impact on the metabolic syndrome than a low fat diet. Lipids, 2009.

    Ideal Protein has a high success rate. No diet is perfect for everyone. Why not talk to some people who like it? For example, see Debbie Humphries (below).

    I do not charge coaching fees. Dieters lessen or go off of medications quickly. They are not hungry. They do not lose muscle like they would on LF diets. They have success when all other approaches have failed.

    Put aside your prejudices if you care about people at all. Obviously, you are only promoting your own affiliates that earn you $$$. Shame on you!
