Thousands of customers contact us every month about our wildly popular Ideal Protein Alternative Program. Many have reached out as they have seen the dramatic results achieved by friends and family so they, too, are incredibly curious about this weight loss protocol. This evidence-based meal plan is low in carbohydrates and sugar, resulting in the average monthly weight loss of 15 pounds. It is common to start with four medical grade weight loss products (delicious shakes, puddings, bars, soups, chips, snacks, desserts, entrees and more!) and one sensible meal per day. Your weight loss products are shipped directly to you and our nutrition plan guide instructs what to eat for your one sensible meal--it's as easy as that!
There are three stages in the Ideal Protein Alternative Program. Stage one is the most effective and should be followed until you reach within five to 10 pounds of your goal weight. While stage one tends to yield the fastest results, stage two is the comfort zone (while being almost as effective as stage one) for many of our customers. Stage three is the ween-off stage where dieters learn the best sensible meals for weight loss and overall health, while only consuming two weight loss products per day. Below is a snap shot of the different Ideal Protein Alternative stages.
Stage One Daily Intake: 4 Products and 1 Sensible Meal
Stage Two Daily Intake: 3 Products and 2 Sensible Meals
Stage Three Daily Intake: 2 Products and 3 Sensible Meals
As you can see above, it is required to eat three servings of low-sugar vegetables and one serving of low-sugar fruit. If you would like to skip the fruit and/or one serving of the vegetables, healthy fats are the best substitutions. In addition, you will have a certain amount of ounces of quality proteins. Below you will find examples of these food categories:
Low-Sugar Vegetables: Broccoli, kale, leafy greens, lettuces, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, spinach, celery, collard greens, cabbage, and green beans.
Low-Sugar Fruits: Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, tomato, avocado, bell pepper, olives, and eggplant.
Healthy Fats: Avocado, olive oil, avocado oil, walnut oil, nuts, seeds, nut butters, salmon, olives, and full-fat plain Greek yogurt.
Quality Proteins: Chicken, turkey, fish, shellfish, beef, wild game, quinoa, and beans.
