Tips for Steps 1-3
The Science Behind The ITG Weight Loss Method
The typical American diet consists of processed foods—refined sugars and starches such as bread, pasta, potatoes, snacks and sweets, etc. The pancreas must constantly pump out insulin to take care of all the sugar (or glucose) that makes up these foods to regulate your blood sugar levels.
From the minute that carbohydrates are consumed, they are broken down into glucose in the bloodstream and then whatever is not needed immediately for energy is converted into fat and stored. Eating a diet that is full of these processed foods or a high-carbohydrate diet, forces the pancreas to work overtime and eventually can lead to insulin resistance. When a body becomes insulin resistant and produces excess insulin, it results in a drastic drop in the blood sugar level (hypoglycemia), and thereby leads to sugar cravings. More sugar is consumed, and the cycle starts over leading to excess fat storage and yes, excess weight.
This is where the ITG plan stops the cycle. Our simple to follow, 3 step plan allows you to lose weight while targeting the fat your body has stored and uses it as energy. The term is called "Ketosis" and it simply means "using fat for energy." Our program helps you comfortably consume fewer calories with no drugs, increase your "calorie burning" activities and get you the high quality protein you need to improve your weight loss results.
The ITG Plan will guide you and support you in your quest to lose fat safely by helping you understand the difference between "eating a healthy diet" and "eating for weight loss". And most importantly, upon reaching the final stage, you will also have learned to eat a balanced diet within each meal and how to maintain your weight loss.
