Weight Loss Q&A
Ideal Protein® Weight Loss Program led by Mrs. Kiran Singh, Program Director and Weight Loss Coach
Does being overweight negatively affect my health?
Yes. If you’re overweight or obese, you’re also more likely to experience serious health problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea, and heart disease.
Being overweight also puts additional pressure on your bones and joints. Clinical studies show that losing 5-10 pounds can reduce inflammation throughout your entire body and ease weight-bearing pressure on your knees.
Being overweight can also negatively affect your confidence and self-esteem. Participating in a medically supervised weight-loss program can help you feel better about yourself and appearance.
What is medically supervised weight loss?
Medically supervised weight loss is a branch of medicine focused on reducing total body mass through safe, effective means while improving your overall quality of life.
Unlike yo-yo diets and other nutritional fads, medically supervised weight loss uses scientifically proven treatments that compliment your body’s metabolism and natural digestive processes.
At his practice, Dr. Singh proudly offers medically supervised weight loss using the Ideal Protein diet. Dr. Singh’s practice is the only Ideal Protein-approved weight loss clinic in Imperial County.
What is the Ideal Protein diet?
The Ideal Protein diet is a ketogenic diet developed by renowned dieticians Dr. Tran Tien Chanh and Olivier Benloulou. The program replaces your daily carb intake with fat, which puts your body in a state called ketosis.
The Ideal Protein diet is unique in that it uses a modified approach to ketosis that temporarily restricts fat intake. It’s thought that restricting fat intake encourages your metabolism to burn through excess fat stores.
The Ideal Protein diet features three separate phases:
- Phase 1: Weight Loss
- Phase 2: Stabilization
- Phase 3: Maintenance
If you’re interested in trying a proven weight-loss method, the Ideal Protein diet is worth considering.
Am I a candidate for medically supervised weight loss?
Only a trained and qualified medical professional like Dr. Singh can determine if you’re a good candidate for medically supervised weight loss.
That said, if you’re more than 15 pounds overweight and you’ve tried various treatment plans without any significant weight loss, you’re probably a good candidate.
Following a physical exam, review of your medical history, and discussion of your goals for treatment, Dr. Singh can develop a treatment plan that aligns with your needs.
