Phase One

In the first phase, you will replace two meals & one snack per day with Ideal Protein foods and eat one meal that includes a lean-protein and leafy vegetables. Take the plan's supplements, an important part of the first phase, which is extremely low-calorie, low-fat and low-carbohydrate. The first phase lasts until you reach 90% of your goal weight.

Phase Two

Phase two lasts from one to two weeks. In the second phase, eat two meals that include eight ounces of lean meat or poultry with salad or cooked vegetables and two tablespoons of oil, as well as one meal & snack that include the Ideal Protein foods. Calories, fat and carbohydrates are still fairly low.

Phase Three

In phase three, healthy carbohydrates are reintroduced. This phase lasts about two weeks total. During phase three, eat a small serving of whole-grain carbohydrates such as whole wheat toast or whole-grain (sugar-free) cereal with breakfast, along with a piece of fruit. For lunch and dinner, eat eight ounces of lean meat or poultry, green vegetables, a small amount of olive oil and a serving of lean dairy. You may also have an afternoon Ideal Protein snack.

Phase Four

In this phase, assume your "every day" diet. Maintain the breakfast from phase three with a small amount of protein. For lunch eat six to seven ounces of lean protein and unlimited vegetables, along with low-fat dairy and oil. An Ideal Protein snack is still recommended in the mid-afternoon, and dinner is vegetable soup, an ounce of a complex-carbohydrate grain such as whole grain pasta and lean protein.

What to Expect

On Ideal Protein you can lose an average of three to seven pounds of fat per week. Provided you follow the diet exactly, this is a realistic goal, and increased energy is a bonus.
