Good health begins in the gut—so that means the food you put into your body matters just as much as routine check-ups and health screenings. San Antonio Gastroenterology Associates offers a variety of weight loss and nutrition services to ensure you get the most comprehensive gastrointestinal healthcare in Southwest Texas.
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method is a dual-function, medically designed weight loss protocol. Unlike so many diets and weight loss programs, Ideal Protein helps guide patients through the weight loss journey, while also educating them on healthy lifestyle habits to ensure they can sustain their results.
For more than two decades, Ideal Protein has changed thousands of people, helping them experience healthy weight loss and embrace a higher quality of life. Now you can transform your health with Ideal Protein and the experts at San Antonio Gastroenterology Associates.
Ideal Protein works by training the body to burn fat reserves through elimination of simple and complex carbohydrates from the diet during the weight loss phase.
Simple and complex carbohydrates can prevent weight loss. The body stores approximately three days’ worth of carbohydrates for fuel, therefore, the Ideal Protein protocol restricts sugars and starches (simple and complex carbs) until you have achieved your weight loss goal. To maintain nutritional balance throughout the program, the Ideal Protein protocol is accompanied by supplements that contain key ingredients for optimal health, including omega 3 fatty acids, electrolytes, calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
Eliminating sugar and starches from your diet ensures that your body preferentially burns fat and you lose weight. The core principle of the Ideal Protein Protocol is to deplete glycogen (carbohydrate) reserves completely and promote fat loss.
