For many, the prospect of foregoing food for any prolonged period of time seems scary, even dangerous. But over the last 20 years, countless studies and new discoveries have validated the incredible health benefits associated with caloric restriction as well as various fasting protocols. These benefits include:
- Weight loss
- Visceral fat reduction
- Cellular clean-up (an incredible process called autophagy)
- Helping maintain a healthy metabolism
We’ve concluded that fasting done safely and wisely can play a crucial role in promoting overall health and longevity. As such, we are happy to incorporate fasting opportunities into our practice.
Maximizing benefits with a “prolonged fast”
One of the most beneficial forms of fasting is what’s known as a “prolonged fast.” This is 2 or more days of little or no caloric intake. But compliance for a prolonged water-only fast can be difficult, daunting even. Thankfully we recently discovered a new program to help: ProLon.
ProLon is a 5-day low calorie, plant-based meal program that provides the same benefits of a water-only fast, but with food. It is the first “fasting-mimicking diet” ever created, and it really works!
Safer than water-only fasting, ProLon is convenient, simple, and delicious. With this plan, the body is “tricked” into fasting mode while eating tasty foods like fresh olives, hearty soups, and sweet nut bars.
Join our upcoming Fasting Week
To spread the word about the health benefits of fasting, we’re utilizing ProLon for our own “Fasting Week” from December 2-6.
This is a great opportunity to jump-start your wellness plan and give your body a much-needed tune-up!
