Ideal Protein Overview
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.

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. I tend to be a picky eater but the food tastes fine. Is it a prime rib at Outback Steak House? This is a diet, not a gourmet restaurant. The food is edible and fairly tasty and if you stick to the plan, more or less, you will lose weight.
I lost 7 pounds the first week. No need to add spices, etc. No thought has to be put into it…. Good job I did MF also and had great success but was so expensive with no discounts no breaks anything and I just stumbled across wonder slim three days now I like the food it taste good!
I had used Optifast and the chocolate shake was delicious. I had hoped to continue with something just as good and cheaper. I am starting month two on WonderSlim, and I love it! I have lost 17 pound, and recommend this product. Can I ask you how much you want to lose. I was thinking of trying Ideal Protein but all the sucralose in it scares me. I need to know what to do during this time at night any suggestions? Anyway, did you ever find out what works for you? ANY info would be soooo much appreciated.
I use to have the awful habit of getting up in the middle of the night and looking for food. What worked for me was this. Everyday I would make a package of sugar free jello- I would add a can of fruit in natural jucies drained and would eat that when I got up at night. It did not stop me from losing weight and really helped me.
Hope this idea helps for you. Just started wonderslim 3 days ago. My twin sister did medifast about 6 years ago and dropped 10 pounds fast, but she is dedicated. I thought the food was terrible. WS shakes are great! Chocolate creme and chocomint creme taste great and you can drink them easily, no chalkiness. The shaker they send with them is perfect and I just use the water cooler at work and shake a little and it mixes easily.
Love the Vegetarian Joe, esp with some iceberg lettuce leaves, easily makes lettuce wraps almost like PH changs. WonderSlim does have an ingredient list for the products.
There are testimonials about the products on the website. Since they are pretty frank, it can help to steer you away from a product that is not as tasty as others. I am using WonderSlim in conjunction with Weight Watchers. I am using the protein bars and chocolate marshmallow snack bars YUM! Very surprised that anyone could dislike this program!! I lost weight very easily. However, like any program … you must want to lose weight and be ready to so just that.
I wan not hungry after the first few days. The meal replacement shakes are the best on the market. And you can do so much with them, or make them into a yummy pudding.
Have lost 25 lbs so far!! Did you ever cheat on the diet? Just curious if you still had great results? Sometimes I have a small spelt cracker with soup just because I miss crunch.
It also is making me think more about wht I eat. I love it so far! I have just order my first supply of WonderSlim products. The reason why I love Ws is:.
Its hundred dollar cheaper, 2. You can eat a piece of fruit, 3. You can actually eat 2 starches on this diet and still loose weight. You can also have milk and even yogurt with your breakfast. The food actually taste like food. Also I havent gotten any huger pains or headaches.. I am actually full!! I dont have the time to think about fast foods.. Because the time you eat your last snack or try to, your belly is satisfied.
The food is better, especially the oatmeal and they actually do provide regardless of what the moderator states the calories are not on the items. Just try WS and see for yourself compared to Medifast.. I am a believer and never looking back. On the Diet Direct website not only is there nutrition information for Wonderslim products, there are also consumer reviews, very candid reviews I might add.
I have transitioned to this plan from MF and have to say the food is much better tasting and cheaper box for box than its rival company, MF.
In this economy, this is a major plus. You get 3 meals a day. Diet To Go also offers you the choice to get 5 or 7 day meal delivery.
However you also have the option to get 3 meals per day or just two meals per day no breakfast. Either service will deliver the food to your home in special packaging so you do NOT need to be home to receive the meals. This is always up for debate as everyone has different tastes. However overall, the general consensus is that Bistro MD has meals that are a little bit more gourmet than Diet To Go.
Having tried them both, I have to agree that this is the case. Both services are really good at this. Diet To Go used to have a much simpler option:
