On your first visit to our office when inquiring about Ideal Protein, we first have to find out if you qualify to be on the program. There is no diet that is for everyone! Remember dieting is a sacrifice, but it is for a limited time. The more you adhere to a program the faster the result will be. This couldn't be more true with the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Program. If you give it 100% you should get great results, but if you give it 80% coherence you may get very poor results.

Dr. Spano personally lost 32lbs in the first phase in 8 weeks!

Patients who suffer from many different conditions such as Type II diabetes, pre-diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and fatigue can benefit from the insulin-glucagon level-balancing effect from Ideal Protein.One of our main goals here at Core Spine &

Wellness is to help patients avoid surgery and narcotics because we know how detrimental the long term effects can be. Patients who have high cholesterol, diabetes or other conditions caused by obesity are most likely on different types of medications to help control these conditions. As these patients lose weight with Ideal Protein, their obesity related conditions can improve and medication can be eliminated.

Losing weight and staying healthy with the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method can help with the following conditions:

Health risks of obesity


High blood pressure

Type 2 diabetes


Gallbladder disease


Sleep apnea


Metabolic Syndrome "X"

As you many know, obesity is a growing epidemic in our country. Ideal Protein prevents and provides solutions for Syndrome X, also called the “metabolic syndrome.” To qualify as part of this epidemic that is epidemic in our county, adults or children need only suffer from 2 of the 4 components of the metabolic syndrome:

Blood sugar issues (diabetes)
Cholesterol problems
High blood pressure
If you have “Syndrome X,” your health is at risk. According to the American Heart Association, people with “Syndrome X” are at increased risk for coronary heart disease and stroke. Other health issues include cirrhosis, kidney disease, sleep apnea, polycystic ovary syndrome, and dementia.

If you suffer from Syndrome X, Ideal Protein Weight loss Program may save your life.

Ideal Protein can work beautifully for people just looking to trim down or lose some extra belly fat. Ideal Protein can help with belly fat, cellulite, and other problem areas. We know that patients not only want to feel good on the inside, but they want to look their best on the outside. When you look better, you feel better and ultimately, you will live better.

Here are some other results that patients can expect with Ideal Protein:

Support in cellulite reduction – Ideal Protein’s fat-targeting approach locates and shrinks fat cells all over the body. Your cellulite is easily targeted, and is just one of the areas patients will experience improvement.

Skin revitalization – Proteins are essential for the growth and repair of cells – especially skin cells. Patient’s skin, hair and nails will get the vital nutrients they need to look and feel their best.

Improved immune system – Protein plays a major role in the treatment of illness since the body is primarily composed of protein. Protein provides vitality and strengthens the immune system.

Stabilization of blood sugar levels and other obesity related conditions

Maintaining Muscle Mass

Ideal Protein differs from other diet solutions in that it emphasizes the need to lose fat percentage rather than a specific volume of weight, and therefore promotes the consumption of protein based foods as opposed to low calorie alternatives. While low caloric diets may prompt quick weight loss, the issue is that this includes the loss of muscle, tissue and lean body mass in addition to unwanted fat.

Muscle volume happens to be the key fat burning engine in the human body. Therefore, retaining it is critical to your ability of sustaining a healthy weight once you have shed the excess pounds that you were once carrying. When you lose weight and sustain muscle, it is easier to attain the ideal body weight and image that you truly want. 

Quick History

Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method was developed by Dr. Tran Tien Chanh in the early 1990s. While working in a sports medicine clinic in France, Dr. Chanh created a high protein diet protocol that helped athletes preserve a healthy weight without losing lean muscle mass. Dr. Chanh soon discovered that the same diet helped obese patients achieve rapid, healthy, long-term weight loss.

How it works

Diet Protocols

Ideal Protein is a medically supervised and designed, 4-phase protocol that helps stabilize the pancreas and blood sugar levels while burning fat and maintaining muscle. During the protocol, patients will consume Ideal Protein foods in combination with whole foods ( lean proteins and vegetables), limit their fat intake and follow a mandatory supplement regime. Patients will also limit carbohydrate intake, which forces the body to use its other two resources for energy: stored fat and muscle. With the high biological value of the Ideal Protein foods, patients will ensure that muscle mass is maintained, and stored fat gets burned off.


The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method has 4 phases.

Phase 1 – You start out using an Ideal Protein food product as the basis of 3 of your 4 meals each day. You eat a low-carb, low-fat “regular” dinner. You follow this until you have reached 100% of your weight loss goal. While on this phase you will come into our office once per week to meet your wellness coach so they can take your measurements and weigh you in. This is also an opportunity to ask your coach any questions.

Phase 2 – You reduce the Ideal foods to 2 per day, eating 2 low-carb, low-fat, “regular” meals and continue the Ideal Protein plan for a maximum of 2 weeks. In this phase you will come into our office once per week to get measured, weigh-in and ask your wellness coach any questions that you might have.

Phase 3 – For weight loss stabilization, you will re-introduce moderate amounts of fats and carbohydrates to your diet for 14 days. You only have 1 Ideal food product per day with 2 other “regular” meals. While on this phase you will continue to come into our office to see your wellness coach once per week.

Phase 4 – You continue to eat the way you have been taught. By this time you have learned to eat in a much healthier fashion, choosing healthy foods and the right combinations of foods. As a result, you are able to maintain your ideal weight while still enjoying all the foods you like, but in moderate amounts. Weekly visits with your wellness coach are continued in this phase, including measurements and weigh-ins.

Throughout all the phases of Ideal Protein, you will have the ability to sign-into the Ideal Protein website and enter your information into an electronic weight loss diary. This will let you keep track of and watch your progress.
