Why a high protein diet?
First, a high protein diet assures that your weight loss is due to loss of fat and not muscle. Consuming relatively low calories that have low amounts of protein results in significant muscle loss which is, of course, not desirable. Secondly, high protein diets suppress hunger. Most individuals consuming high protein diets of 800 to 1000 calories daily do not have feelings of hunger. And finally, a high protein diet results in a maintenance of relatively high fat metabolism; in other words, your body metabolism is maintained at a relatively high rate and your metabolism will not “shut down” as is usually the case in individuals who are consuming low calorie diets that are low in protein content. The bottom line is that individuals who are on high protein diets that are relatively low in calories are much more successful in losing substantial amounts of weight than individuals who are on lower protein diets. If you have diabetes mellitus and are going on a high protein diet, your medication requirements might be significantly reduced.
For example, if you are on insulin, you may require much less insulin than you currently need to control your blood glucose. And if you are on certain oral agent, particularly the sulfonylureas such as glipizide, glyburide, or glimeperide, your requirements may also significantly diminish or even be eliminated. You should consult your physician and monitor your blood glucose carefully when going on a high protein diet. When making up your diet, you should attempt to consume approximately 50 percent as protein, 35 percent as carbohydrate, and 15 percent as fat. If you decide that and 800 calorie diet is appropriate for you, then approximately 400 calories (or 100 grams) should be made of protein, 280 calories (or 70 grams) should be made of carbohydrate, and 120 calories (or 13 grams) should be made of fat. If you are a tall individual and believe that 1000 calories a day is more appropriate, you would want to to consume 125 grams of protein, 87 grams of carbohydrate, and 17 grams of fat. Each serving (one scoop) of Medi-Cal Nutritional Supplement contains 14 grams of high quality protein and 8 grams of carbohydrate. Most individuals use 5 servings of the Medi-Cal supplement daily in conjunction with other protein sources.
