1 in 3 Americans have Metabolic Syndrome
Metabolic Syndrome, with its four hallmark symptoms of obesity, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and hyperglycemia, is undoubtedly the epidemic of the century. We have changed the USDA food pyramid, developed new drugs, and even removed soda machines from schools—yet one in three Americans is considered obese, primarily caused by Metabolic Syndrome.
Current treatments for Metabolic Syndrome fail because they focus on treating the symptoms rather than the root cause. These treatments typically prescribe medications to help the body produce more insulin or increase insulin sensitivity. The problem is that while insulin receptors on some tissues, such as muscle, may be resistant, other organs retain their sensitivity to insulin. These organs’ prolonged exposure to higher than normal insulin levels inevitably leads to complications, thus requiring even more medications. This is why we so often see patients taking a variety of prescription medications to deal with co-morbidities.
Enter our Ideal Protein Method, which uses a ketogenic diet-based approach to providing a lasting solution to patients with Metabolic Syndrome. This diet keeps the body’s insulin levels low, allowing the patient to regain sensitivity to and normal production of insulin.
By centering the Ideal Protein method on lean protein and vegetables, with low levels of carbohydrates and fats, patients’ bodies naturally adjust their insulin levels and lose excess fat while maintaining lean muscle.
