Elina’s Perspective on the ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet

Written by Elina Murphy – Nutritionist at Turack Chiropractic

Numerous studies have suggested that there are many benefits of intermittent fasting, such as weight and body fat loss, lower blood insulin, reversal of type 2 diabetes, increased energy, lower blood cholesterol and many other health benefits including cancer prevention and anti-aging. The problem is that it is difficult to do.  Fasting requires a lot of self-discipline and may interfere with normal activities. Some people feel faint, exhausted and unable to go about their life. Fasting has also been shown to have some adverse effects for athletes, which makes sense given their need for increased energy.

Personally, I have never even considered fasting prior to doing the ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet Program.  I exercise almost every day of the week and have a very healthy appetite. I never “forget” to eat or get headaches and feel dizzy, if too much time passes between meals.

Last August, after reading about the ProLon program and evaluating all the research, I decided to give it a try.  ProLon received the first-ever patent for anti-aging and I was really impressed with the amount of science behind the program’s creation.  

I ended up doing the program 3 times and will be doing it again in the next couple of weeks.  It wasn’t easy but it wasn’t nearly as difficult as I expected. I felt hungry on days 3 and 5 when the calories are at their lowest but I did not experience any of the negative side effects that normally accompany hunger.  In fact, I felt great the entire time and was able to exercise, work and take care of my family as I normally do. I did not experience any caffeine withdrawal or the mid-afternoon energy drop that I normally get. ProLon allows for herbal tea throughout the day but only one cup of coffee or caffeinated tea in the morning.  

My favorite part was not having to think about food for 5 days.  Everything you need is neatly packed in one box and the only cooking you really have to do is heating up the dinner soup which has to be done on a stove top.  I lost 4-5 pounds each time and reduced my body fat by 3%. Overall, it was a great experience. I was able to do something very beneficial for my health while feeling and looking great.  This is a fantastic program for anyone looking to reset, feel good and maybe jumpstart weight loss.
