From limiting eating hours to total food abstention, nutritionist Kim Pearson on how to find the perfect fasting plan for you
“It sounds deceptively simple: to lose weight, and decrease your likelihood of succumbing to a range of weight-related diseases, just reduce your calorie intake.
Indeed, this week we’ve learned that a clinical trial involving 300 people in Scotland and Tyneside, funded by Diabetes UK, discovered that an 800 calorie diet can reverse type 2 diabetes (which is strongly linked to poor diet and excess weight) in half of cases.”
“Next generation fasting involves eating foods that the body can barely detect, which means in theory that dieters can get all the benefits of fasting while still being able to eat.”
“Scientists discovered that the diet triggers a death-and-life process for cells that appears critical for the body’s repair… the lab found that the diet can cut visceral belly fat and reduce markers of ageing.”
“Fasting increases fat loss from around our middles, which has been linked to an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, certain cancers and Alzheimer’s. It has also been associated with improved blood pressure and insulin sensitivity, better gut health, lower cholesterol and better brain function.”
“The Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD) is a new category in nutrition that is scientifically proven and clinically tested to mimic fasting and its benefits including cell regeneration, healthy aging, and fat driven weight loss.”
“ProLon is the first impactful yet practical and natural intervention that enhances the healthy part of our life by optimizing the way we age. Based on over a decade of research and development. ‘ProLon is scientifically proven to enable people to live longer, healthier lives’ – Dr. Valter Longo, chairman and founder of L-Nutra.”
L-Nutra launched the first Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD) called ProLon. ProLon is a 5-day per month diet that allows consumers to go back to their normal lifestyle/diet for the remaining 25 days of the month. Fasting Mimicking Diets provide natural, healthy, and scientifically tested ingredients that will nourish your body while the body does not recognise it is eating.
This fasting with food meal plan is low in carbohydrates and proteins and contains good fatty acids. The Fasting Mimicking Diet patented recipe allows your body to remain in a fasting like mode, which triggers a set of protectionist measures that the body has developed during natural selection. This allows the body to optimise its performance, rejuvenate its cells, and thrive under demanding circumstances.
