Complete Protein Diet Powder

Optimum Nutrition's Complete Protein Diet is a revolutionary HIGH PROTEIN meal replacement containing 35 g of high quality protein, a balanced vitamin and essential mineral profile, Omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, and only 1 g of sugars!

The Science Behind High Protein-Low Carbs The Paleolithic Diet:
The Concept of a high protein, low carbohydrate diet is not new.  In fact most anthropological evidence suggests our "Stone Age" ancestors were nomadic "hunter-gathers" that subsisted on a diet rich in meats, wild green plants and shrub fruits.  During this period there were fluctuations in the food supply forcing our Paleolithic predecessors to become proficient at maximizing food storage and utilization.  Throughout evolution our diet has undergone significant changes, but many experts feel that our bodies are still best suited to handle a high protein low carbohydrate diet.

Several best selling books including Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution, Robert Crayhon's The Carnitine Miracle and H. Leighton Steward Et Al.  Sugar Busters promote high protein/low carbohydrate diets, much like those believed to be consumed by our ancestors during the Paleolithic Period.  These authors claim that high protein/low carbohydrate diets help stabilize the body's hormonal responses, reduce an individual's risk of developing a host of chronic illnesses and speed weight loss by forcing the body to use its fat stores for energy.  Complete Protein Diet is formulated to closely model the health conducive nutritional profile of the Paleolithic Diet promoted in these best sellers.

The Carbohydrate Myth:
"Dieting" for most people has traditionally meant reduced caloric intake.  Most high carb/low fat diets do not allow for sufficient intake of quality protein and essential fatty acids.  When you consume carbohydrates, your body releases insulin to help convert them and store them for energy.  The more carbohydrates you consume, the more insulin your body produces.  Eventually your body can produce more insulin than is necessary which increases carbohydrate cravings.  Many diet meal replacements shakes derive most of their calories from refined carbohydrates and provide insufficient calories from protein and dietary fat.  This supplement provides over three times the amount of quality protein found in the typical diet shake and includes essential fatty acids.  This not only helps control blood sugar levels and insulin production, but it also promotes a feeling of satiety.  Best of all, it tastes delicious mixed with water.

The Hormone Connection: Insulin vs.  Glucagon:
High carbohydrate/low fat diets are the key to weight loss right?  Not necessarily.  Nearly all the foods you consume are digested and eventually end up in your bloodstream.  In order to be used by the body, these nutrients must be transported into the cells.  Insulin is a hormone that shuttles nutrients (carbohydrates, fats and amino acids) into the cells so that they can be used by the body.  Your body has a limited ability to store carbohydrates.  Therefore, when you consume excess carbohydrates (especially refined sugars) the body is forced to convert and store them as fat.  Fortunately there are alternatives.

CPD helps maximize the effectiveness of one of your body's other hormones; glucagon.  Glucagon helps with fat utilization by promoting the production of compounds called ketone bodies.  Like glucose, ketones can help fuel most of the activities that we perform throughout the day.  But unlike glucose, ketones are made from fat.  What's the bottom line?  Possibly greater fat loss, the most desirable type of weight loss.

The Skinny on Fat:
Gram for gram, fat provides more calories than protein or carbohydrates.  In addition to providing energy, fat also protects the internal organs, helps insulate the body against cold, aids nerve transmissions, cushions the joints, dissolves and transports fat soluble vitamins, and governs what enters and leaves the cells.  Certain types of fat (Omega 3 fatty acids and Arachidonic acid) also appear to indirectly regulate a wide variety of body processes by serving as precursors to a group of hormone-like compounds called eicosanoids, or Prostaglandins.  Eicosanoids are cell to cell mediators that regulate a number of the body normal processes.  CPD contains expeller pressed Canola which is a naturally rich alpha linolenic acid or Omega 3 fatty acids.

A Versatile Complete Source of Nutrition:
Complete Protein Diet is the perfect high protein a low carbohydrate meal replacement for use in conjunction with the high protein low carbohydrate diets mentioned above.  With a few simple modifications (i.e. blending with milk, fruits, oatbran, etc.), it can be easily incorporated into other popular diets like isocaloric, 40/30/30 or low fat diet plans.
