F.A.Q.

1.  Is the Protein Supplementation Program safe?

Our protocol is safe for everyone, except those with some liver or kidney problems. We love helping to improve the health of those who combat high cholesterol, diabetes and even high blood pressure.  Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should only use the Protein foods to supplement their diet, not to lose weight.

2.  How is the Protein Supplementation Program different from other protein supplements on the market?

The Protein Supplement method treats healthy eating issues at its source.  By the time you reach your  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.  The Program aims at reducing carbohydrates and fats, not protein.  In doing so, it preserves muscle tissue and protects vital organs to secure their proper function.  In other words, you will lose fat, not muscle.   This healthy eating method features companies who use high biological protein, complete with eight(8) essential amino acids, that recreates 100% of the biological value of a complete protein for maximum assimilation and absorption.  This method is also less toxic than other protein diets because it features less saturated fats, no trans fats, no Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) and Genetically-Modified Organisms (GMOs).

3.  What should aanyone know before starting any of the Programs?

Our goal is to not only help you eat healthy, but to help restore the body chemical back to a balance.  When you reduce the amount of processed foods or high sugar, high carbohydrate based food, some people experience a sort of “detox” or “withdrawal”.  These are absolutely normal and should be anticipated.  Most symptoms are mild and usually disappear within the first 48 -72 hours.

4.  What is the kind of affect can I expect?

Everyone is different and therefore results may vary.  We do expect women to lose an average of 2-4 lbs per week and men to lose an average of 3-5 lbs per week.  These are realistic expectations if no deviations from any of the programs are taken.

5.  Do I have to exercise while I am following any of these programs?

Exercise is not mandatory, however we do encourage physical activity.  One of the key ways to maintain weight loss after dieting is to exercise for a minimum of one day a week for approximately 30 minutes.  Moderate resistance or strength training helps to burn fat and preserve bone density.  Mild cardiovascular activity helps to keep the body toned and strengthen the cardiovascular system.  Certain programs may have certain restrictions regarding how much exercise and how often.

6.  Do I need to keep a food log or Daily Journal?

We encourage keeping track of your progress.  Clients find it helpful to have something to reference when looking back.  It helps you to figure out what foods were successful and which may have stalled their progress.  It also helps clients to stay focused and in control when things are more hectic or stressful in their life.

7.  Why do I have to drink so much water?

64- 80 ounces of water per day is the minimum that your body needs to stay healthy.  Your body will release excess water not needed through urination.  If you drink less than this amount the body may start to retain water which may affect your weight loss. This is also where people report feeling “bloated”.

8.  What should I do if I feel light-headed or dizzy?

This may mean that your blood sugar is too low.  You should eat something from your food list.  Try one of the vegetables or eat your fruit.  If this happens frequently and is not relieved by eating / drinking, call your doctor for a further evaluation and some trouble shooting ideas.
