Fasting is a hot topic lately, gaining lots of traction in the wellness community due to a growing body of positive research! Study after study indicates that certain types of fasting can provide a bevy of health benefits, lowering blood sugar, promoting weight loss, reducing inflammation and cholesterol, decreasing visceral fat, maintaining healthy blood pressure and much more.
We’re so excited about all the health benefits of fasting that we recently decided to expand our wellness menu with a proven fasting method backed by years of research: Prolon®, The Fasting Mimicking Diet® (FMD). To help you better understand FMD, here are the answers to your most frequently asked questions:
What exactly is the Prolon Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD)?
FMD is a five-day intermittent fasting diet that’s high in fat and low in calories. FMD has been clinically shown to promote fat loss while also reducing blood sugar, inflammation and cholesterol. FMD is designed to provide you with all the benefits of a five-day fast without starving! With Prolon, you get to enjoy food and feel nourished. Best of all, FMD is focused on maintaining your total body health by promoting regenerative and rejuvenating changes.
Is fasting dangerous?
Some of the dangers of fasting on your own include dehydration and severe hunger. The ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet is designed to curtail these negatives with Prolon® meals, which come in five small boxes, one for each day. Each box includes plant-based energy bars, soups, a variety of snacks, drinks and supplements. Every ingredient has been studied and carefully combined to support healthy levels of metabolic markers, cellular rejuvenation and healthy aging.
How do I know if fasting is right for me?
During your personal consultation, we will carefully review your medical history and goals to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the Prolon Fasting Mimicking Diet.
Is Prolon similar to keto?
No, the Prolon FMD is not a keto diet, which is focused on reducing the amount of carbohydrates consumed per day. Prolon FMD is focused on reducing caloric intake while also maintaining your comfort, nourishment and health.
Can I do the Prolon diet on my own?
The Prolon Fasting Mimicking Diet cannot be done on your own, without the special daily nutrition boxes. Each ingredient/snack contained in the Prolon boxes is based on research and carefully combined to mimic fasting while optimizing your nourishment and comfort.
