Fasting the Right Way: Scientific Benefits Beyond Weight Loss

Regular fasting has been practiced for generations. We are now learning that there are many health benefits linked to this ancient practice.

What is fasting? Is it safe?

Fasting is CHOOSING to abstain from food (not eat) for a set period of time. It is very different from starvation. In starvation, there is no choice and the period of time is unknown. During fasting, there is a specific time period during which we choose to give our bodies a break from eating.

This allows us to undergo housekeeping and help keep our cells, tissues, and organs working at their best. Specific biochemical changes take place and these changes safely and effectively help us improve our health.

Fasting can weight loss and bloating, but leading research shows numerous additional benefits:

Weight loss

During fasting, the body increases use of body fat for fuel. It's a fast way to reduce bloating and lose fat (especially belly fat) while protecting lean body mass.

Pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes prevention and/or treatment 

Fasting reducing insulin secretion

Enhanced thinking, mood & metabolism

Fasting increases norepinephrine and growth hormone secretion

Cellular Repair and Regrowth

Fasting promotes a process that cleans up old cells and regenerates new cell growth

Reduced Hunger

Fasting suppresses of leptin and ghrelin: two hunger-inducing chemicals

Anti-Aging + Brain Health

Fasting also has anti-aging and brain health benefits, including a reduced risk for Alzheimer’s disease and cancer! That’s quite a list!


Can I "Fast" While Still Getting Nutrients?

We found a Doctor-Recommended Fasting-Mimicking Mealkit designed to mimic the effects of fasting

—so you’re eating (although fewer calories than usual) and you’re still getting some macro- and micronutrients, but you’re also getting some of the benefits you could get from fasting!!!

Fast-Mimicking Diet: The ProLon 5-Day Mealkit

"There are a lot of detoxes and meal programs that I will try but only a few I will do more than once. Last year, I did ProLon’s five-day program three times, and I’ll probably do it about three more times this year."

The 5-Day Mealkit makes it simple and impactful enough that you would and could reasonably do the program multiple times.
