Understanding the Science Behind Ideal Protein

Dr. Tran Tien Chanh is a co-founder of the Ideal Protein Protocol. Though he started his career as a general practitioner and sports physician, he quickly became interested in nutrition and obesity-related issues. Weightloss is the essential treatment for hypertension and dyslipidemia, so Dr. Tran became a driving force in developing the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol.

We offer FREE Ideal Protein weight loss protocol educational seminars at 5:30 pm, usually the FIRST and THIRD Wednesday of each month.

Additional Information

What is it?

The Ideal Protein Protocol is a medically-developed, supervised ketogenic weight loss and behavior modification protocol. While the traditional keto diet is high in fat, Ideal Protein consists of low-fat, low-carb foods with an optimal amount of protein.

Where do I get the foods?

We sell the Ideal Protein foods here in our office. Clients pick them up each week when they come to weigh in during their Coaching Sessions. The rest of the food, whole protein and vegetables, is purchased at your local grocery store.

What kind of foods are there?

The Ideal Protein products range from pre-made shakes and pudding to brownies and bars, soups, chips, oatmeal, and more!

What is the cost?

The average cost for the Ideal Protein food products is about $100 per week. This accounts for about 60-70% of your food for the week.

Do I have to take the supplements?

Yes. Since the Protocol removes fruit, grain, and dairy from your diet, you need the supplements to replace the nutrients you are not getting from those sources. Remember, it’s not just about losing weight. We also want you to be healthy.

Do I have to stay on the diet forever?

No. After clients meet their weight loss goal, we transition them to stabilization and then to maintenance. During that time, our Coaches teach them how to keep the weight off as we add back more calories and choices into the diet. Ideal Protein Protocol makes an emphasis on knowing what you are eating and how to make smart choices.

How much weight can I expect to lose?

Everyone is different. People lose at different rates depending on body type, age, sex, and compliance with the diet. In the first two weeks, clients tend to lost between 4-6 pounds a week. After that, the average is about 2 pounds per week for women and 3 pounds for men.
