Fasting with food! The first of its kind, Fasting Mimicking Diet™ (FMD) by ProLon®

Fasting with food! Was this something that would be manageable and realistic? Would this enable my busy clients to do something that would not only help them to achieve their health goals but also fit into a busy lifestyle? I was eager to give it a go! I also managed to persuade my sister to give it a go too – I hope she’s still talking to me!

ProLon® is a 5-day Fasting Mimicking Diet™ that nourishes your body while supporting overall health. Studies have shown that fasting can have a positive effect on a number of health-related issues such cholesterol, inflammation, and fasting glucose levels.

ProLon® removes the need for water-only fasting, while responding to the unmet need of providing an accessible, proven and safe dietary programme that does not require ongoing lifestyle changes, such as long-term dieting. This nutritional breakthrough was scientifically developed and clinically tested at the Longevity Institute at the University of Southern California. Led by Dr. Valter Longo, the USC Longevity Institute unites multidisciplinary ageing research approaches.

FMD, is the first meal programme made of healthy natural ingredients that you consume for five days, during which your body does not recognise that it is eating, and therefore remains in a fasting mode. The food was lovely, it was made up of nut bars, olives, soups, chocolate crisp bars, seeded crackers and lots of herbal tea!
