Whether you're trying to lose significant weight or just a few pounds, Gray's I.D.A. Drug Store sells a weight loss system that has been designed to help people lose weight and keep it off. The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method was created with 2 key components – weight loss and healthier lifestyle education to help users maintain their results after dieting. Created over 20 years ago by Dr. Tran Tien Chanh, he focused his research on nutrition with an emphasis on treating obesity and related issues.

Dr. Tien has stated that, “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.” The overproduction of insulin can lead to hypoglycemia or low glycemia, which can then lead to constant sugar cravings and weight gain.

The Core Principles of Ideal Protein

With Ideal Protein, your body will learn to live off of its own fat reserves. The body uses energy from three reserves: glycogen (carbohydrates), protein, and fats. The body will first deplete its simple and complex carbohydrate reserves, and then turn to its protein and fat reserves for energy. Someone who does not need weight loss help generally has 1-2% of their body's reserves from carbs, around 19% from muscle mass, and 79% from fat reserves.

Simple and complex carbohydrates can stop weight loss. Your body stores around 3 days worth of carbohydrates, leading our protocol to restrict sugars until 100% of your weight loss goal is achieved. This is because as long as sugar is being consumed, your body will have a harder time burning fat. That being said, the core principle of the Ideal Protein system is to deplete the glycogen (carbohydrate) reserves completely, in order to push the body into consuming its fat reserve to burn calories.

Ideal Protein foods are made with high quality protein. The protein used has an impact on effective protein absorption; the lower the quality, the lower the absorption. With low protein absorption, your body may be able to protect your muscle mass and therefore you will burn muscle along with fat. With the loss of muscle, you may impair your ability to burn calories post-diet.

Those on this diet system also take nutrient-rich supplements, such as Natura Multi-Vita, NaturaCalcium, and Magnesium and Natura Potassium, which are all key ingredients to muscle building and electrolytes. These supplements replace those normally found in foods restricted on our system.
