ProLon® is a 5-day dietary program carefully designed to nourish and rejuvenate your body while supporting metabolic balance.
The ProLon FastingMimicking Diet® gives many of the benefits of a fast while letting you eat delicious food to help fight hunger and lose weight while protecting lean body mass. Get a trimmer waistline and many of the associated benefits of fasting without requiring ongoing lifestyle changes, such as long-term dieting.*
* Benefits seen in a clinical study of the 5-day ProLon cycle once a month for three months.
Over 20 years of extensive preclinical and clinical studies sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and conducted at the Longevity Institute and Diabetes and Obesity Research Institute of The University of Southern California (USC) resulted in the development of the first FMD® (ProLon®) which:
• Helps kickstart weight loss*, and supports healthy metabolic health and rejuvenation from within.
• Triggers autophagy - the clean-up of cellular debris and work out parts.
• Helps reduce visceral fat for a trimmer waistline.
What intrigued us the most about ProLon is that it’s based on years of research from one of the most well-known longevity experts in the country, and the studies on its outcomes are impressive. It’s also in line with my own eating philosophies: ProLon is 100% plant-based, gluten-free, and non-GMO, with no artificial additives.
ProLon was created by Valter Longo, Ph.D., director of the Longevity Institute at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. The company’s research partners include well-respected organizations, such as the Mayo Clinic and the Texas-based MD Anderson Cancer Center.
After over a decade of studies in both animals and humans, Dr. Longo developed a patented eating plan that activates the body’s fasting mode but provides enough food to simultaneously nourish cells and support metabolic balance. This “fasting with food” approach also reduces some of the risks tied to extreme fasting, which may include very low blood sugar and/or blood pressure, reduced immune function, fatigue, and low productivity.
The specific combination of limited plant protein, calorie restriction, good fats, and low-glycemic-index carbohydrates in ProLon regulates the body’s nutrient-sensing pathways, meaning cells believe they’re not being fed. At the same time, the diet triggers anti-aging pathways responsible for cellular repair and regeneration.
