Weight Loss: Ideal Protein Overview
At Banic Chiropractic Clinic, we care about all aspects of our patient’s well-being. We are proud to be an Independent Authorized Clinic, sharing the unique Ideal Protein Weight Loss method and products. The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method is a medically designed protocol containing two key components – weight loss and a healthier lifestyle education (coaching) to assist you in maintaining your results after dieting.
Food replacement programs are a great method for weight loss - Because losing weight can be more enjoyable when the food satisfies your spicy, sweet and salty taste buds, Ideal Protein’s unmatched variety of instant, easy-to-prepare and ready-to-serve products are skillfully developed to exacting flavor and texture. Furthermore, Ideal Protein uses only the highest quality protein products in their line of gourmet weight loss products, because not all protein sources are created equal. If protein absorption is low, you won’t feel satisfied and you may experience powerful cravings that overcome your determination.
Understanding the cause of weight gain will help you conquer it - A diet, like the Standard American Diet, terribly HIGH IN SUGAR and fat, such as in breads, cereals, muffins, cakes, pastries, pasta, pizza, rice, corn; causes the pancreas to produce an OVERABUNDANCE OF INSULIN, which stays in the system and leads to low blood sugar ie, constant sugar cravings and weight gain.
Understanding fat storage will help - Insulin’s primary function is to regulate blood sugar levels however it is also the hormone that facilitates the transport of fat (triglycerides) into the fat cells. Even worse, INSULIN LOCKS FAT INTO THE FAT CELL, preventing it to be used as a source of energy. This explains how difficult it is to burn fat eating your typical low-fat, high-carb "diet food". Ideal Protein methods will teach you to live off of the body's own fat reserves. The Ideal Protein Method RESTRICTS CARBOHYDRATES and SUGAR, depleting the glycogen (carbohydrate) reserves completely, allowing elevated Insulin levels to drop, and FAT RESERVES TO BE RELEASED for use as energy!
How do we get the body to burn its fat reserves and not its muscle mass reserves safely? First, Ideal Protein foods are made with high quality protein for high absorption. ADEQUATE PROTEIN IS ESSENTIAL. If protein absorption is low, you will not be able to PROTECT YOUR MUSCLE mass and thus you will burn muscle along with fat. If you lose muscle while dieting, you will impair your ability to burn calories post-diet, as your body uses muscle mass to burn calories. Secondly, our dieters use our nutrient-rich supplements such as Natura Multi-Vita, Natura Calcium & Magnesium and Natura Potassium, key ingredients in muscle building and electrolytes. These supplements replace those normally found in foods restricted on the Ideal Protein protocol.
What to Expect - Based the experiences of over 3,000 clinics worldwide, the Ideal Protein Protocol enables the following:
Structured weight loss while supporting muscle mass;
An understanding of how food affects and is utilized by the body;
An understanding of what causes fat storage;
Weekly one-on-one coaching, lifestyle education and guidance;
Personalized approach to setting weight loss goals, based on your health profile;
Losing weight can improve blood sugar, cholesterol levels and reduce blood pressure;

"I can honestly say that I finally know how to eat healthy and not have to count points for the rest of my life and so for that, I wanted to write you a quick note to say how thankful I am! This program has changed my life and makes me so happy! Thank you for offering this program at your clinic and more so, for being such a helpful, and motivating yet relaxed coach through this transformation. I could never have done this without you! Thank you, thank you,thank you!"*

"If you are ready to fully commit to the Ideal Protein protocol, you will not be disappointed! The science behind this wonderful program cannot be refuted—if you stick to it you will see amazing, immediate results.
Other weight-loss programs had worked for me, but none of them taught me how to eat to keep the weight off long-term. I began the IP journey March 29, 2012 and in less than 4 short months I lost 50 pounds, greatly reduced my body fat percentage and went from a size 14/16 to a size 8/10. I woke up each morning ready to take on the day with increased vitality and energy. I can honestly say that not once during my time on IP did I feel hungry to the point of being uncomfortable or wanting to quit the program. There were many tasty and easy-to-prepare food choices available that made it so easy to stay on protocol. The education that I received from my Coaches Leslie and Heather throughout my journey is the main reason I know my long-term success.
All the Banic Chiropractic staff were welcoming and helpful from day one and their new downtown Issaquah location is convenient and beautiful. I hope my personal success encourages others to give Ideal Protein a try—it works!" *
