Non-surgical Weight Loss Q & A

What is non-surgical weight loss?

Non-surgical weight loss uses healthy lifestyle changes like diet and exercise to help you lose weight and keep it off. The team at Hattiesburg GI Associates PLLC helps patients achieve non-surgical weight loss using the Ideal Protein Protocol.

The Ideal Protein Protocol features three distinct phases designed to help you set, achieve, and maintain your weight loss goals. Over time, it boosts your metabolism, improves your eating habits, and helps you maintain your results.

How does non-surgical weight loss with Ideal Protein work?

At Hattiesburg GI Associates PLLC, non-surgical weight loss begins with an in-office physical, a review of your medical history, and a discussion of your lifestyle and goals for treatment. After gathering this information, the team develops a custom treatment plan using Ideal Protein. 

Ideal Protein has three phases:

Phase 1 - Weight loss

During the weight loss phase, you eat a diet that limits your carbohydrate intake. That encourages your body to convert fat stores into energy, eradicating pesky pockets of fat that are usually resistant to exercise.

Phase 2 - Eating Ideal Protein foods

During phase two, you eat foods recommended in the Ideal Protein Protocol. You can purchase specific food products via the Ideal Protein website, or you can use recipes approved by the Ideal Protein system. Phase two also teaches you exercises to maintain muscle mass, and you learn how to develop smarter eating habits and lifestyle choices.

Phase 3 - Maintenance

Phase three of Ideal Protein focuses on helping you maintain your weight loss. That includes regular check-ups and coaching designed to hold you accountable.

If I’m vegan or vegetarian, can I participate in non-surgical weight loss?

If you’re vegetarian, you can consume the necessary amount of protein by eating tofu, eggs, or fish. You also have the option of consuming two Ideal Protein foods for your evening meal, instead of a whole protein like beef or chicken.

If you’re vegan, non-surgical weight loss with Ideal Protein isn’t right for you. The vegan diet has many dietary restrictions that may hamper your progress. 

Let the team at Hattiesburg GI Associates PLLC know about your dietary restrictions. They can work with you to develop a non-surgical weight loss program that works for you.
