The Ideal Protein Review

Best diet? Consumer Reports weighs in on Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, Atkins and more

I know it was two years ago,but I live in Washington too and just wondered how you did on it and if you were able to stick to it. I really want to try but boy it seems hard to eat lettuce twice a day, I am afriad Ill get tired of it real quick.

I went to a dr office on Wed and it costs and then about 90 a week. I was just curious how you did on this diet. I am from Washington state as well! I am on day 3 so far I am loving it and have seen people I know change there bodies in such little time! I have been a little tired in the evenings.. But my coach said that by day 4 I would be worn.. To get done rest n your body will bounce back n it will have more energy!

I love this diet! Almost 5lbs down in 3 days for me!!! You need 3 packets a day on face 1 , later you need less packets per day. I am seeing amazing results with my nurse friends, some lost 75lbs, some 65lbs and a few in the lbs range, I lost 35lbs. The doctor said this is the only diet with over 30 years in medical practice that works. I think that says volumes. My doctor says the same thing.

I am on my second day and not doing too bad. Like the food more than I thought I would. I am on it not only to loose weight, but to try to keep sugar under control. I am a diabetic typeII and he is a heart patient heart attack 2 years ago.

Both our doctors are anxious for us to lose weight, and this diet looks right for both of us. Wish us luck — I will check in in a couple of weeks! My blood sugar was the last time I saw my doctorin January.

One week after starting the diet my blood sugar went down to A week later Certain cardiac patients cannot. I had controlled my diabetes type 2 for 19 years with vegetarian diet and exercise but the morning numbers were creeping up. This diet lowered my morning number from to the first day and then a rapid decrease to now average or lower in the morning. Plus it stays around 95 all day. Also, I walk a few miles a day and before my blood sugar could go down 60 points, now it is staying stable.

No more extreme highs and lows. Lost 11 pounds in 2 weeks. It is based on BMI so we will see how it goes. Hopefully another 30 pounds to be complete. But to not have the diabetes dragon chasing my tail is wonderful. I would rather pay for the foods than drugs to control it. Also, my blood pressure meds had to be cut in half and will probably be eliminated soon. I am just wondering about the effects of the Ideal Protein products containing Sucralose, which is an artificial sweetener??

Is it acceptable to use in short term doses like this program? I have a high sensitivity to the artifical sweetners and I must say I am not having any problems, I have been on this program for 4 weeks now and have lost In comparison to all of the chemicals and toxins we take in with processed foods, this is minimal.

Also, remember that this is a temporary diet change and that clients are taught to eat for life without the products. Love the Ideal Protein diet! There is plenty of variety on this diet and they have a good maintenance program. There are 4 phases of the diet where they slowly wean you off of their product to eat real food.

Once you have reached your goal and maintained your weight loss, you will know about food combining to ensure you keep off the weight. You will be eating a bigger meal at breakfast, smaller for lunch and even smaller for dinner. One day a week you can eat whatever you want—anything.

That way of eating is something I can live with long term. I have been on this diet for 10 days now. I live in Cajun country, where food was created.

Just like the consultant told me, it would take about 5 to 6 days on this diet to get used to it. I have lost 15 lbs, need to lose 25 more. After the first 6 days, my appetite was satisfied, my taste buds enjoyed the natural flavors of the foods and I have no sense of depression. The more I read up on this diet, the more I agree with the plan. Good weight loss can be achieved, but you really need to follow the plan. I ate a plane salad for lunch yesterday with only olive oil and sea salt.

I can only tell you, I was able to taste every piece of vegetable in it and am looking forward to my meal today. I expect to be on this plan for 2 to 4 more weeks and then have the consultant wean me to a life long diet that maintains this. One more thing about this diet that I added, I asked the Lord the help me and He has. Thanks for adding that, there is a reason why I read your comment. I started the diet 6 days ago and have already lost over 5 pounds. Monday I will offically get a weigh in and measure inches lost.

Yes the first days were hard, especially day 2 and 3. Now I have my energy back and feel fine and satisfied after meals. One you can be on for months and then never have to diet again. It really teaches how to eat healthy for the rest of your life.

Hi Kimberly, I also live in cajun country Baton Rouge where food was created, lol. I see your post was in January. How much did you have to lose? Have you reached your goal weight? Who better to turn to than the Lord-He cares about every area of our lives!! I am on the diet right now……have tried lots of things on my own….

I have lost 19lbs and 13 total inches in 4weeks on this plan. It is great for me because it stresses not to do heavy exercising the first 3weeks. I recently had hip surgery which i gained alot of weight with and cant do much cardio.

Since it is doctor regulated i feel it is more successful. I am sure there are similar diets and contrary to this post the ingredients etc are clearly posted on the box and the meal plan. Feel free to find a doctor that participates and you will learn alot. Hey Blaine…How is the weight loss going? Went to a talk tonight…..

Did you experience any leg cramping in the very beginning??? I just started IP today and have had some leg cramps for about half the day!? I started on two days ago and woke up with a terrible cramp in my calf this morning! Has been achey for about a half hour. Good variety of foods. Best of all they have coaching videos daily that provide support, information and great recipe ideas. I agree there should be a nutritional value guide listed on the website.

I do know the foods are made from Soy, whey, Protein, and Collagen Isolates so that both carnivores and Vegetarians alike as well as Gluten free needs are acheivable. Prices are not listed because it is a clinician only Program, and the price can very from clinic to clinic.

Some of the food is good, but they have a small variety in comparison to other programs. Do you know approximately what your friends are paying a week and have they been happy with the results? That is supplemented with lots of fresh veg and daily protein for supper. You are being overcharged. But if you are seeing a doctor, they can charge whatever they want. Pricing can also depend on supplements.

There are Ideal protein distributors in the US. Usually, they are within a chiropractic practice. I go to Dr. Kathleen Posey on the North Shore. I should have lost more but I got mixed up with the restricted food. Not only is my doctor on this program but her nurse is as well…they both lost a tone of weight. This is a very easy program to following, just eat.

You will lost weight, just eat. I am thinking aboout starting the Ideal Protein diet. I made an appointment for tomorrow. Are you still pleased with the results. VIcki you have to obtain the products through a doctor…. You can buy the products, at Dr. Hannon on Clearview in Metairie, is the number, hope this helps,. LOL But thhere is a delicious cappucino Ideal protien mix, and the nice things about their drink mixes is that you can make them with less water, and they become puddings, or, make them with ice to make smoothies and milkshakes.

I am starting the diet this Friday via a friend. Where can I find information regarding the phases so I know what to eat and when? This diet might be expensive but it is the absolute best diet out there. This diet is a Godsend. Lost 20 pounds and have never been this thin since I got married which was 25 years ago. The food taste great and I still go back to the doctor and get some of my favorites so the taste is not a problem like similar diets.

The only negative I can share is in the beginning, the first 3 weeks, I must admit I was hungry. I guess my stomach had to shrink and my body adjust to less food. The way to battle that is drink something hot. Hot drinks work better than cold, for me anyway. Hi — I have been on this diet for the last 11 days. Could not afford to continue.. Diet works -I lost 6.

Food is not great but somethings are ok…bars, puddings, chili, -did care for fruit drinks. Yes, her price is correct. It is pretty easy, but costly. I lost 30 lbs. It is more expensive then how we use to eat, but it is well worth it.

They do teach you how to take care of ur body to keep it off and when at ur weight goal, you will spend less. I have tried a couple of offices in Orange County.

I have lost 28 lbs in less than 3 months. I located a lot more labels, but none included the actual ingredients; just nutrition info. This one from a center in Groton, Connecticut. This diet—or, actually, complete lifestyle change—purports to be medically sound and created in response to the obesity epidemic.

When the American Medical Association AMA recognized obesity as a disease, more and more of these medically-created or supervised kinds of diets and clinics began popping up everywhere. In this case, the clinics, practices, or pharmacies already exist, and they sign on to add Ideal Protein program as an adjunct making money for all. But science and nutritional experts generally agree that some meal replacements may be okay.

And in general, experts say high-protein diets like Ideal Protein are okay for already healthy people. The Mayo Clinic says while diets like this may help with weight loss, the jury is still out on the long-term safety of high-protein-low-carb-low-fat diets because of health concerns. And side effects including headache and constipation. Plus, they say, high-protein diets may hurt people with kidney disease. Their suggestion is to cut out bad carbs—processed ones—and replace them with whole grains and good carb-rich vegetables.

They also say that a restrictive diet is not sustainable: The best eating plan is one that you can stick to long-term. What about Ideal Protein reviews? Testimonials posted on this website have been provided by individual dieters and are representative of their own personal experience and are not typical. Any statements or claims, posted on this page, are not being made by the owner of this website or by Ideal Protein. The most recent post about Ideal Protein I found was a message board thread from late My doctor has strong opinions on Ideal Protein she said absolutely not but some doctors say it can be done safely.

Ideal Protein is offered at my hospital and many people have joined it and lost dramatic amounts of weight. Almost every person has gained it all back.

The only person I know who lost weight on Ideal Protein and kept it off is a man who married a dietician right after he went off the diet. One full review on Pissed Consumer. But they needed to lose weight and decided to go for it. I started to lose some weight but was constantly sick and had no energy.

Then I noticed I was losing my hair. I went to my doctor and was told that this Ideal Protein diet plan was dangerous and that it starves the body of much needed carbs and nutrients. The main problem with such plans is in the theory itself — the idea that by starving your body of carbohydrates that you will then use fatty tissue for energy, and lose weight.

Yes, you will lose weight, but it is not the way that you should want to lose it, and therein lies the problem. The issue is that not only does the fatty tissue get used, but so does the lean tissue. You know…your heart, liver, kidneys! So, while you are losing weight temporarily you are not losing it properly and can be putting yourself at risk.

In addition, you are not giving your body what it needs — your body need carbs to survive, and is very dependent on them. Without them your body will start using what are called ketone bodies instead, which can lead to additional problems due to the imbalances this creates by making your blood overly acidic. Unfortunately, the Ideal Protein Diet falls right into this category, and thus really should be avoided.

She says a lot about Ideal Protein and her experience with it. Also, since the low carb diet sends you into ketosis, you will have bad breath. Based on our research people frequently try to compare Ideal Protein to other weight loss solutions. Often the brands and their products are different in many ways which makes it hard to compare apples-to-oranges. This is our attempt to compare below 6 and pick the winner. Please take this information with the grain of salt and do your own research.

If making dietary changes we recommend consulting with your medical doctor. I first did Atkins before people got hip and realized that all the garbage and I mean super-bad-for-you junk in processed meats was a really bad idea.

Back in the day, you ate hot dogs and bacon by the pound. I lost a lot of weight doing Atkins because I cut carbs way way way back. Years later, I found that a modified Atkins, a smart really-low bad carb diet was doable. What you need to know about Ideal Protein is you must be willing to go to a brick-and-mortar center. It is similar to Atkins in theory because its a low-carb, high-protein ketogenic program but with meal replacements and supplements taken after going to a center, then doing the rest of it online and you pay a lot of money for the foods and supplements.

Once on the diet, and after you reach your goal weight presuming you do , you must maintain that loss for a year, meaning you still pay them and still take supplements.

Next, lose all the weight you need to lose on their plan, become the new you and stay that way for life. Do I sound as if I am being a tad facetious? But when we talk about comparing Ideal Protein versus Keto OS know that they have the same ketogenic idea of weight loss so in that way, Keto OS and Ideal Protein are similar, but that's about as far as it goes.

I suppose chugging down ketones in their flavored drinks is cheaper, but not by too much, than Ideal Protein. Plus, you don't have to go to a center, purchase foods and supplements, then be monitored online, and later stay on that diet far beyond reaching goal weight if that ever happens.

You need to know that Ideal Shape has a secret ingredient called Slendesta, a so-called hunger blocker, in its meal replacement shakes within its proprietary blend of protein and fiber that they say works because you feel full longer than with regular meal replacement shakes. Some of it is good nutrition, but not all and as we know, anything processed and packaged has some questionable ingredients.

This is a self-guided program. That said, I am just not a big supporter of any of these programs that have you eating their foods. The one redeeming quality about WonderSlim is they donate food for hungry kids when you buy their stuff.

Long a fairly solid diet that focuses on low carbs, but includes good healthy carbs from starchy veggies, and high protein. Just like Ideal Protein. But while South Beach is from that trendy South Florida home, the so-called clinics that you must register with and visit located in the Sunshine State are often found located in, near, or within clinics for pain management.

What does that even mean? One, what does pain management have to do with weight loss? I am not equating Ideal Protein with any nefarious stuff done in shady clinics, but I am just not supportive of a weight loss clinic being associated with an alleged health care practice where one has nothing to do with the other. It feels too much like a scam. Still, I definitely will declare South Beach Diet in principle as winner in this showdown. Is it fair to declare a winner before the brawl? In this case, yes.
