Proven Weight Management Solutions
Managing weight is often the simplest solution to healing injuries or alleviating chronic conditions. Just losing a modest amount of weight can, for example, significantly reduce load on a troubled knee, often alleviating the issue. But it is also a struggle for many patients who have tried the old maxim of eat less and exercise more. Dr. Albano searched for years to find a solution to help his patients lose weight. He went to conferences, visited other clinics and regarded the various options. Let's face it, there are a ton of programs out there. He found a successful program that works because it's scientifically valid and here is accountability. There is a starting and a definitive end. He's found that if you don't cheat you will lose weight. The Albano clinic has partnered with a weight loss system that emphasizes ideal protein levels and offer a medically supervised program. Under our guidance you’ll keep protein levels normal while minimizing fat and carbs. Your body has no choice but to burn fat as fuel.

Medically Designed, Medically Proven
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method is a medically designed protocol containing two key components—weight loss and a healthier lifestyle education to assist you in maintaining your results after dieting. Our protocol has evolved for over 20 years, but was originally developed more than two decades ago by Dr. Tran Tien Chanh who focused his career and research on nutrition with a particular emphasis on the treatment of obesity and obesity related issues.
“Having all the pressure of all those pounds off of my knees and off of my back, it’s wonderful. It was such an easy program for me to stick to and the weight seemingly just fell off.” —Tierney Silver Thorne
The science: Understanding the cause of weight gain will help you conquer it
According to Dr. Tran Tien, "The cause of many weight issues in a modern society is insulin dysfunction. A diet grossly disproportionate in its share of saturated fats and sugars, such as in breads, cereals, muffins, cakes, pastries, pasta, pizza, rice, corn—very much like the North American diet—causes the pancreas to produce an overabundance of insulin, which stays in the system and puts the blood sugar level in a negative balance."
An overproduction of insulin may lead to hypoglycemia or low glycaemia, which in turn may induce constant sugar cravings and weight gain. One of Insulin’s primary functions is to regulate blood sugar levels, however, it is also the hormone that facilitates the transport of fat (triglycerides) into the fat cells. Even worse, it "locks" the fat into the fat cell, preventing it from being used as a source of energy. Now, because the blood sugar has dropped (and we can’t access the fat as a fuel source) it creates "sugar cravings” and the vicious cycle begins again. In other words, an overabundance of insulin can cause weight gain.

Core Principles of Ideal Protein
Learning to live off of the body's own fat reserves. The body employs energy from three reserves: glycogen (carbohydrate), protein and fats. First the body depletes its simple and complex carbohydrate reserves and then turns simultaneously to its protein and fat reserves for energy. A person not in need of weight loss typically has approximately 1–2 percent of their body's reserves from carbs, approximately 19 percent from their muscle mass and 79 percent of their body reserves from fat.
Simple and complex carbohydrates can prevent weight loss. The body stores approximately three days’ worth of carbohydrates, therefore, our protocol restricts sugars (simple and complex) until 100 percent of your weight loss goal is achieved…why? Because, as long as sugar is being consumed, your body may not be burning fat. Remember, the first source of energy is derived from glycogen (carbohydrate) reserves. Therefore, the core principle of the Ideal Protein Protocol is to deplete the glycogen (carbohydrate) reserves completely, in order to compel the body into consuming its fat reserve to burn calories.
How do we encourage the body to burn its fat reserves, but support its muscle mass reserves if both are depleted simultaneously? First, Ideal Protein foods are made with high quality protein. The quality of protein used in Ideal Protein diet products has an impact on effective protein absorption…the lower the quality, the lower the absorption. If protein absorption is low, you may not be able to protect your muscle mass and thus you will burn muscle along with fat. If you lose muscle while dieting, you may impair your ability to burn calories post-diet, as your body uses muscle mass to burn calories.
Secondly, our dieters use our nutrient-rich supplements such as Natura Multi-Vita, Natura Calcium and Magnesium, Natura Potassium and Natural Omega-3 Plus, key ingredients in muscle building and electrolytes. These supplements replace those normally found in foods restricted on the Ideal Protein protocol.
