Learn How Our Ideal Protein® Plan Can Help You Reach and Maintain Your Fighting Weight

Frustrated with diet programs that don’t deliver? If you’re ready to make 2020 the year you achieve your weight-loss goals, i

Are you determined to start the new year off right with a plan to reach your ideal weight? If so, you aren’t alone. The majority of Americans are overweight or obese, and here in Texas, we rank 10th in the nation for obesity.

If you’ve tried dieting without success, Dr. Tim Martin and the compassionate care team at Tim Martin M.D. family practice in Abilene, Texas can help. Read on to learn how our Ideal Protein® weight-loss plan can help you reach and maintain your fighting weight this year!

What is the Ideal Protein plan?

Created by medical experts, the Ideal Protein Diet is a three-phase program that’s low in calories, low in carbs, and supplemented with meal replacements. The plan combines ketogenic weight-loss principles with nutritional support and education about living a healthier lifestyle. The result? You learn how to lose weight and keep it off for good.

How does the Ideal Protein plan work?

The Ideal Protein Diet has three phases. In Phase 1, the weight loss phase, you and your nutrition coach discuss your Ideal Protein eating and supplement plan, which includes:

Once you’ve reached your ideal weight, you move into Phase 2, which lasts for four weeks. During this time, you reduce your consumption of Ideal Protein meal replacements at lunch and breakfast. You’ll switch to choosing whole foods with carbs at breakfast and whole foods proteins at lunch instead of the Ideal Protein lunch replacement. This phase starts the transition to the maintenance phase, or Phase 3.

Phase 3, or Maintenance, lasts for an entire year and teaches you how to keep off the weight you’ve lost for good while enjoying more freedom in your diet. The core principles will last a lifetime, helping you look and feel your best. You’ll learn how to build in a day of indulgence and how to easily consider fat, carbs, and protein to give you the best outcome possible.

Why choose the Ideal Protein plan?

Losing weight is essential to your overall health. In addition to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, excess weight contributes to many other health conditions, like arthritis, hypertension, kidney and liver diseases, sleep apnea, and more. Fortunately, most of these conditions are reversible with sustained weight loss. 

Following a low-carb, ketogenic diet, like the Ideal Protein plan, can help. The Ideal Protein Diet makes losing weight simple and convenient. The premade Ideal Protein foods reduce the amount of time you need to spend shopping for groceries or thinking about meal prep, freeing up time for healthy habits, like exercise, meditation, or yoga. 

What’s more? With the Ideal Protein plan, you get the added support of a trained nutrition consultant. Studies show that you’re more likely to stick to your weight-loss plan when you have added support and accountability.
