Dr. Best appeared on Hollywood Trend Report TV airing on KTLA5 Los Angeles speaking about weight loss and the Ideal Program utilized in his office. Dr. Best's celebrity clients love the simplicity in implementing this program in a hectic life style.
On your first visit to our office when inquiring about Ideal Protein, we first have to find out if you qualify to be on the program. There is no diet that is for everyone! Remember dieting is a sacrifice, but it is for a limited time. The more you adhere to a program the faster the result will be. This couldn't be more true with the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Program. If you give it 100% you should get great results, but if you give it 80% coherence you may get very poor results.
Dr. Best personally lost 25lbs in the first phase in 4 weeks!
• Quick weight loss without sacrificing muscle mass
• An understanding of how food affects and is utilized by the body, including what causes fat storage
• Utilization of fat for energy usually by day 4 — fat (including cellulite) that sequesters chemical toxins
• Improved energy and appetite control, reduced cravings — usually on day 4 or 5
• Improved blood sugar and cholesterol levels, reduced blood pressure
This is a 4 Phase Program to help you through every part of losing weight and keeping it off for good. That's we say this is "your last diet."
It is a physician monitored program because as your body improves its health you may have to reevaluate medications you may be taking. If you have severe kidney or liver disease you can not be on this program. If you have concerns in this area, the appropriate blood tests will be taken prior to starting this program. I have had patients who have brought their cholesterol and blood pressure back to normal during this program.
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss is based on creating a mild state of ketosis in the body, where the body stops using its glycogen (sugar stores) and uses fat for energy. The liver produces ketones from the breakdown of fat which are then used by the body for energy. This is done by reducing the carbohydrate intake to very specific amount and then providing the body with an adequate amount of protein in order to maintain lean muscle mass.
This ideal diet has a beginning and end. Carbohydrates are not the enemy, it's certain combinations of foods you can learn how to deal with. We want when you are finished with this program to be able to enjoy all foods.
Lean muscle mass is one the important factors which regulates your metabolism. Protein is vital to your organs and ideal for maintaining your lean muscle mass. A strictly low caloric diet often does not provide adequate amount of protein and during the weight loss lean muscle is used which effectively lowers your metabolism. In other words, when you finish the typical low calorie diet you have to eat less to maintain than before you started, often starting people on the yo yo diet.
Even my celebrity clients love this diet. They could have any program in the world and they are so happy with this program. The process is so well designed it makes it easy to follow once you get past the temptations and emotions surrounding eating. Patients say they love the food so much they want to continue eating it. However, we teach people how to reintegrate back into the world and when necessary compensate for an over indulgence. We want people to enjoy life and enjoy food, but understand how to do that without putting the weight back on.
