Are You Experiencing Fluctuating Weight Loss on Ideal Protein?

Typical results vary while on the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol, but clients can expect to lose up to six to eight pounds during the first two weeks, and up to two pounds per week thereafter when the Protocol is followed properly. If during your weekly weigh-in your weight has not gone down, it will no doubt be because of one of the 4 reasons outlined below.

1. Intentional or unintentional deviations from the program (cheats)

At each weekly weigh-in, your Ideal Protein Coach at Advanced Vitality will review your journal to identify any areas of concern.

Things your coach will look for:

  • Skipping a meal

  • Not consuming the required amount of vegetables

  • Consuming salad dressings with hidden sugars

  • Consuming foods that are not allowed during the weight loss protocol

  • Ensuring that your scheduled weekly appointment is at the same time weekly and you are wearing preferably similar clothes

2. Premenstrual or Perimenopausal Women

If you are perimenopausal or experiencing your monthly menstrual cycle you will experience water retention that will mask weight loss. The following week, you will be back on track.

3. Constipation

If you do not have a bowel movement every day, due to deviations from the protocol such as not eating the recommended servings of vegetables, water, or supplements, it can affect your weekly measurement on the scale. It is imperative to discuss irregular bowel movements with your Ideal Protein Coach, particularly if they result in bouts of constipation.

4. Muscle gain vs. fat loss

Your body is reshaping; the scale may not identify this, but your measurements and clothes will! This usually comes into play after the first month of the weight loss protocol.
