Ideal Protein Phases 1-4 (Standard)

Due to threatened legal action, I had to pull down the PDFs of the Ideal Protein Phases.  Basically, the breakdown of the phases is this:

 

1 – Until 90%-100% of weightloss is achieved)  Breakfast: Packet + vitamins  |  Lunch: Packet  + 2 cups veggies  |  Snack:  Packet    |  Dinner:  5 oz Lean Meat unless fish, then 7 oz + 2 cups veggies + Vitamins

Note: Drink water all day, use salt to balance any headaches you’re experiencing, no dairy or fruit allowed except 1 ounce of skim milk if you have coffee/tea with breakfast

2 – Continue for 2 weeks) Breakfast: Packet + vitamins | Lunch: 5 oz Lean Meat unless fish, then 7 oz +2 cups  veggies | Snack: Packet  |  Dinner: 5 oz Lean Meat unless fish, then 7 oz + 2 cups veggies + vitamins

Note: Drink water all day, use salt to balance any headaches you’re experiencing, no dairy or fruit allowed except 1 ounce of skim milk if you have coffee/tea with breakfast

3 – Continue for 2 weeks) Breakfast: Complex Carbs from 2 sources, fruits and grains, one serving of protein one serving of fat/dairy (no more than 30g carbs from Grains, 20g carbs from Fruit, at least 25g protein-not protein powder but actual eggs etc., no more than 120 calories from dairy, or roughly 8 oz low fat plain yogurt, no more than 15g total fat PER DAY combined items   +  vitamins  |  Lunch:  5 oz lean meat unless fish, then 7 oz + 2 cups veggies  |  Snack:  Packet  |  Dinner: 5 oz lean meat unless fish, then 7 oz   +  2 cups veggies +  vitamins

Note:  This phase is all about restarting the pancreas.

4 – Maintenance)

    • That’s tough to hear! Remember as you get closer to your ideal weight your loss may slow or stall. Also, keep an eye on your muscle mass, a tiny bump in muscle can add up to a pound quickly. You can do boot camp for a few days to get the scale to move, do all packets instead of the actual protein for dinner, and don’t forget your water!!

    • Thank you for your input, and you are absolutely correct! Without getting “too” into the details of things, I can say that I am “sensitive” to the whey protein, so constipation is never an issue for me :S

  1. I have been on the diet for 5 weeks and have only lost 5 lbs. I am getting very discouraged. I only had 10 total lbs to lose, but this is very hard.
    I am in ketosis and exercise daily. Thoughts?

    • Mari:

      Once you get so close to goal, it might be time to switch up into another methodology such as diet+exercise to lose those last few stubborn pounds. How are you sure you’re in ketosis? Are you using ketone test strips?
