How the diet works

To first understand this blog you need to understand the diet.  Ideal Protein diet has 4 phases, the first phase is to be followed till your goal weight is achieved, should you cheat you just dust yourself off and climb aboard the wagon once more. 
For me being an advent weight watchers fan, and losing 25 pounds the second time round it was hard to leave behind everyday foods but after talking with the diet center I felt better about it.  They are super nice there, you are expected to come in every week to get weighed and measured but it only takes 2 minutes to do, you then pick out your food list for the following week. 

The plan:
Breakfast - 1 Ideal Protein meal, 3 glasses of water, unlimited tea and coffee, black or with 1 oz of skim milk.  Sweetner is only permitted at breakfast and can be used but serving size must be respected. 
Lunch - 1 Ideal Protein meal, 3 glasses of water, and 2 cups of vegetables.
Dinner - 8oz of fish, other seafood, Beef, Poultry, Pork or Veal and 2 cups of vegetables, Tofu is also permitted but can't have it fried.  3 Glasses of water.
Snack - Can be anywhere on your plan, between lunch and dinner, after dinner, between breakfast and lunch, whenever.  1 Ideal Protein food, 1 glass of water.

Ideal Protein vitamins are to be taken at 3 meals and you are supposed to use only their sea salt, cause it has vitamins in it that are essential to the diet.  You may also use other seasonings like herbs, apple cider vinegar, garlic, lemon, ginger, lemon grass, hot mustard, hot sauce, soya sauce, spices (MSG Free/No Carbs), Tamari Sauce & White Vinegar.  (I suggest using seasonings, makes the meal so good).

If you want to set up a consultation or find out more about the diet you can go to: the Ideal Protein website or you can check out this site for testimonials.  There is most likely a place nearby to you who has this program available.  This was a doctor recommended diet, but anyone can sign up.

  1. Hmm... Maybe I will try this Ideal Protein diet program, because I've read quite a lot about it and it seems something with great results... exactly what I need.
    All my life I've faced with this problem and now I'm decided to change my lifestyle, because it's not good if I'm keeping it this way. I hope it will work for me to.
