ProLon®, a ground-breaking five-day plant-based meal programme that nourishes the body while keeping it in fasting mode.
Known as a Fast Mimicking Diet (FMD), ProLon® means that means prolonged fasting with food is possible.
Prolonged fasting can be dangerous and difficult to complete on your own. The ProLon program contains a scientifically-researched combination of micro- and macro nutrients. This unique nutritional formulation nourishes your body—while still enabling it to enter a fasting state that provides metabolic and cellular benefits. ProLon also helps support healthier eating habits, including reduced food cravings and better portion control.
Intermittent fasting (reducing calories on certain days in a week) and time-restricted eating (limiting eating to certain hours in a day) can help reduce fat and promote metabolic balance. But prolonged fasting—as enabled by ProLon®—can actually affect your body by inducing rejuvenation.
As Nutritionist Kim Pearson explains,
“You’ve tried the 5:2, sometimes you manage 16:8, now it’s time for next generation fasting. While intermittent fasting and time restricted eating do have proven health benefits, experts argue that you need to fast for longer than a few hours to experience more profound benefits such as cellular clean up.”
For optimum results ProLon® should be followed once per month for three consecutive months. After completing the 1st three cycles, you can do the program from time to time when you are looking for rejuvenation.
The benefits of fasting for three cycles are well-documented:
• _a reduction of excess fat (especially stubborn belly fat) while preserving lean body mass
• _metabolic balance, which helps maintain healthy levels of systolic blood pressure
• _cellular clean-up and healthy ageing
During prolonged fasting, your body starts a self-cleaning process called cellular clean-up. Think of this process of autophagy as a biological vacuum cleaner that sucks up old and worn-out cellular components to make room for newer, fresher ones.
Day 1) Fasting State: The body transitions into a fasting state & fat-burning mode so it can begin cellular clean-up.
Day 2) 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.
Day 3): Cellular clean-up begins. Fat-burning and ketone production/utilization continues and increases.
Day 4) Cellular Rejuvenation: Cellular cleaning & fat-burning continues.
Day 5) Renewal: Your transformational journey is completed. Re-feeding beyond day 5 will fuel a better you.
Day 6) Nourish the body by breaking the fast.
“Prolonged fasting is a powerful practice for helping the body thrive, despite negative impacts from our modern lifestyles, exerting positive effects on our cells and systems throughout the body.” says Kim Pearson.
