Lose Weight More Effectively With the Ideal Protein Diet
If you’ve been on a seemingly endless roller coaster of diets that just don’t seem to work, it’s easy to blame yourself for your poor results. But the fact is, in many cases, it’s not your own effort that’s at fault - it’s the diet itself. That’s because many DIY and commercial diet plans cause nutritional deficiencies or don’t address the underlying cause of weight gain, that means they’re doomed from the start.
The Ideal Protein diet is different because it’s been scientifically developed to improve the way your body burns off calories, ramping up and optimizing your metabolism so you can lose fat without decreasing your supply of important nutrients. As a leading medical weight loss and chiropractic clinic in Redwood City, Awender Chiropractic offers the Ideal Protein diet to help its patients achieve success in weight loss - and enjoy all the healthy benefits that go along with it.
Why is Losing Weight so Important?
Multiple studies have shown that being overweight or obese is associated with a surprising array of serious medical problems, including heart attack and heart disease, stroke, diabetes, dementia and even some types of cancer. Plus, obesity can interfere with the way your body produces and uses important hormones, including insulin, a hormone necessary for the regulation of blood sugar (or glucose), as well as the “sex” hormones estrogen and testosterone. When you’re overweight, you’re more likely to have problems sleeping, and you’re also more likely to have mood disorders and depression. Plus, being overweight makes it a lot more difficult to participate in many social activities, which can lead to feelings of isolation and depression. And of course, carrying around extra weight puts a lot of strain on your muscles and joints, which means you’re more likely to develop arthritis and joint dysfunction.
What is the Ideal Protein Diet?
Developed more than 20 years ago, the Ideal Protein diet is based on the way the body uses up stored sources of carbohydrates that can wind up turning into fat. Normally, your body derives a lot of its energy from stored reserves of carbohydrates, turning to fat once those reserves are depleted. When you eat a lot of carbs, your body doesn’t have to burn fats - it can rely solely on the carbs you consume, and that means your fat reserves stay the same.
With the Ideal Protein diet, you learn how to minimize your carb intake while maximizing production of lean muscle tissue, which is far more effective in burning off fat reserves. By building up your lean muscle, your metabolism is optimized so you can lose more weight without causing nutritional deficiencies or metabolic imbalances that can, and that means your long-term results are going to be better as well. The diet’s specially-developed supplements provide additional support for your body by ensuring it gets the nutrients it needs to stay healthy, eliminating a lot of the food cravings that contribute to overeating. And of course, Dr. Awender works with every patient to help them learn healthy lifestyle habits so they can stay motivated, stay focused, and stay on track.
