How is the Ideal Protein different from other protein diets on the market?

The Ideal Diet treats the weight problem at its source.  By the time you reach your weight loss goal, you will have transformed your body's ability to metabolize sugar by reeducating your pancreas to produce only the right amount of insulin needed, no more.

The Diet aims at reducing carbohydrates and fats, not protein.  In so doing, it preserves muscle tissue and protects vital organs to secure their proper function.  In other words, you will lose fat, not muscle.

It features a whopping 18 to 20 grams of protein per portion, twice as much as most of the competition.

The Ideal Diet features a high quality protein, complete with nine (9) amino acids, that recreates 100% of the biological value of a complete protein for maximum assimilation and absorption.

It is less toxic than other protein diets because it features less saturated fats, no trans fats, no aspartame, no Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) and no Genetically-Modified Organisms (GMOs).

Is the Ideal Diet safe?

The Ideal Diet is safe for everyone, except those with a dysfunctional liver or kidneys.  Diabetics Type I should only do the less strict diet and women who are pregnant or breast feeding should should only use the Ideal Diet protein foods to supplement their diet.

Is the Ideal Diet safe for people on blood pressure and fluid medication?

Yes, People with high blood pressure are often overweight and will definitely benefit from the Ideal Diet.  However, they will have to be mindful of their salt intake, as prescribed by their physician.

Is the Ideal Diet safe for Diabetics, Type I and Type II, as well as for hypoglycemics (low blood sugar)?

Diabetics have so much to gain from the Ideal Diet because regulating glycemia is at the very heart of the Ideal Diet.  While we cannot reverse Type I Diabetes (we can only help those afflicted to lose weight), a strict Accelerated Ideal Diet can help reverse Type II Diabetes or, at the very least, diminish the condition's vulnerabilities.

Type II Diabetics and people who suffer from hypoglycemia can follow either the Accelerated Ideal Diet or the less strict diet whereas Type I Diabetics should only follow the less strict diet.

Still, diabetics need to be particularly vigilant on the Ideal Diet.  In the first few weeks on the Ideal Diet, people suffering from hypoglycemia should not exercise as much as usual in order to facilitate the reeducation of their pancreas and give their body a chance to readjust to its new eating habits.  As well, they should stock up on the Ideal Diet Peach Mango drink, in case they find themselves in the midst of a low blood surfer crisis, which is predictable in their case.  When it happens, they should sit down, breathe deeply and reach for an Ideal Peach Mango diet beverage.  It will calm them instantly.  They must be confident in the knowledge that their body, more specifically their pancreas, will, in time, soon readjust itself to function as it was originally intended by nature.

I'm on medication. Is the Ideal Diet safe for me?

The Ideal Diet is most likely safe for you but still, we recommend that you consult your physician prior to beginning the Ideal Diet.  Remember, Ideal Diet foods are real foods, drug-free with no stimulants. Each Ideal Diet Food is the equivalent, nutritionally, to a chicken breast, a small filet mignon or a filet of fish.

Is the Ideal Diet safe for children and what is the minimum age for following the Ideal Diet?

Growing children should not be on any diet.  If a parent wants to replace his child's unhealthy snacks with healthy foods, including Ideal Diet foods, the parent must ensure that the child understands the reasons why they are being deprived of these foods.  If not, the child may react adversely by wanting those unhealthy foods even more than before.

What is the difference between the Ideal Diet and the alternate Ideal Diet?

Both Ideal Diets have 4 stages:
STAGE 1 - 70% success
STAGE 2 - 30% success
STAGE 3 - Maintenance
STAGE 4 - Stabilization

The only difference between them is that people on the alternate diet are permitted up to three (3) additional food items per day, one from each of the three different food groups: carbohydrates (Group I), fruits (Group II) and fats (Group III).

The alternate diet reduces potential cravings and makes it easier to be faithful to the diet and still lose weight, only a little slower than on the accelerated diet.  The less strict diet is for people who simply are not willing to forego their morning toast or daily fruit, for example.
