Tired of Being Overweight? Learn More About Our Weight Loss Plan

More than two-thirds of Americans are obese or overweight. It’s not surprising, therefore, to learn that a whopping 45 million Americans go on a diet every year. Sadly, most of those people either don’t stick to their diets and fail to reach their goal weight, or they lose the weight only to gain it back shortly afterward.

The benefits of staying within a normal weight range are great. Aside from looking and feeling better and not feeling embarrassed to wear a bathing suit or squeeze into your clothes, you can also reduce your risk for chronic diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers.

If you’re ready to lose weight or get off that lose-gain cycle, you may want to consider the Ideal Protein® weight-loss plan that we offer at the Center for Women’s Health. This plan succeeds where other diets fail because of the support and education you receive throughout the program and after you lose the weight.

Here are some other benefits to the Ideal Protein weight-loss method.

It’s medically supervised

Unlike other weight-loss programs that come in a book or in packaged meals, the Ideal Protein plan is only offered through medical professionals. You get assigned a weight-loss coach, who helps you set realistic and healthy weight-loss goals that you can achieve in a healthy fashion.

Often, people try to lose weight too rapidly or shoot for losing too much, both of which are not necessarily healthy or sustainable.

You learn about healthy eating along the way

Again, diet plans that come in books don’t always explain why you’re supposed to be eating certain foods and certain portions. A book often just dictates what and how much you should eat to lose weight.

Learning to make healthy choices on your own can set you up for a lifetime of healthy eating and long-term weight loss. For example, on this program, you learn which foods and which combination of foods are the best options for healthy weight management.

You keep the weight off, this time

The Ideal Protein weight-loss program is a four-phase program. The first phase is when you lose the most weight. This phase lasts as long as it takes for you to lose the weight.

After the first phase, you continue to lose weight until you reach your goal weight, but the focus is on maintaining your weight and developing healthy lifestyle habits that enable you to do so.

You get individual coaching and support

Once you sign on for this weight-loss program, you get weekly one-on-one coaching sessions, as well as online tools that help you stick to your healthy eating plan and reach your weight-loss goals. Our coaches also help you make healthy lifestyle modifications to assist in your weight loss and maintenance.

Prepared meals mean no cooking

The first phase of the diet includes prepackaged meals that are low in calories, low in carbohydrates, and delicious. You don’t have to worry about grocery shopping or cooking, which can decrease your temptations. You can add plenty of vegetables and 8 ounces of whole proteins such as shellfish, lean steak, poultry, and tofu to the meals so you’re never hungry.

In the second phase, you reduce your intake of the prepared meals to help you start preparing for life off the regimented diet. Each phase puts more emphasis on freshly prepared healthy, high protein meals and less on the prepackaged ones.

It works

This meal plan does more than just restrict calories, which is necessary to lose weight. It helps you burn fat stores. By limiting carbohydrates, eliminating added sugars, and consuming a lot of lean protein, your body depletes stored glucose and turns to burning fat for energy. This means you preserve lean muscle, while fat slowly disappears.
