What is fasting mimicking?
ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet is a 5-day meal program that provides scientifically researched micro and macronutrients in precise quantities and combinations that nourish the body, but are not recognized as food, and therefore mimics a fasting state.
Until recently, the idea of fasting with food was incomprehensible. After all, the definition of fasting is to abstain from food for a specific period of time. And it’s during this period that the body experiences various fasting modes, each offering a range of life-enhancing, physical effects. The benefits of these effects can increase with longer fasts. The challenge, however for many is to get through a prolonged fasting period (between 4-7 days) without food.
Here's How it Works
Here’s what physical effects take place during the 5 days on the Fasting Mimicking Diet combined with the food and drinks you will consume on that day.
a Fasting State
The body transitions into a fasting state & fat-burning mode so it can begin cellular clean-up.
Fat Burning & Ketogenesis
Fat-burning ramps up, contributing to the initiation of ketogenesis (ketone production). By the end of this day (48hrs), ketosis may occur.
Clean Up State
Cellular clean-up (autophagy) begins. Fat-burning and ketone production/ utilization continues and increases.
Cellular cleaning/renewal & fat-burning continues. You're in the final stretch!
Renewal & Transformation
Your transformational journey is completed. Re-feeding beyond day 5 will fuel a better you.
Only through a prolonged fast can all these physiological effects be achieved, which is why the concept of fasting with food is so appealing.
Fasting For All
Formulating of The Fasting Mimicking Diet
The benefits of prolonged fasts can be so great our scientist wanted to create a program that would bring these benefits to those who may not on their own be able to go without for a longer period of time; and so the Fasting Mimicking Diet was created.
Now you can achieve all the benefits of a traditional fast with perfectly formulated meals. Each day is separated, easy to follow, and ready to consume in minutes.
