The feet are the foundation of the body, and it is in our best interest to maintain a weight that does not place excessive pressure on them for risk of developing conditions or injuries. We at Westfield Foot & Ankle are excited to now offer patients the chance to prevent this by joining the Ideal Protein Weight Loss program. The program, the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method, gives not only weight loss results but valuable nutritional knowledge that will help sustain patients’ results throughout their lifestyles.
More than Weight Loss
The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method was developed over 25 years ago in Europe. Many of the following issues have been associated with obesity, and losing weight may help with the following conditions:
Health Risks of Obesity
- High Blood Pressure
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Gallbladder Disease
- Sleep Apnea (or other breathing problems)
- Mental Health Problems (such as low self-esteem and/or depression)
Obesity can also be problematic for the feet and ankles. Excessive weight can trigger various foot conditions due to the extra pressure and stress placed on the feet’s muscles, joints, and tendons.
Principles behind the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method
The body has three sources of energy from which it draws to meet its metabolic needs: carbohydrates, muscle, and fat. Chronologically, the body will first draw on its carbohydrate reserve before turning to muscle and fat. During the weight loss phases of the weight loss method, carbohydrate intake is limited to encourage the body to turn its fat and muscle components for energy. By eating high biological protein foods, the protocol helps to support muscle mass and teaches you how to develop smarter eating habits and lifestyle choices to help maintain weight after weight loss is achieved.
