The Diet of Longevity How to cure with food

The Diet of Longevity: How to cure with food?

Valter Longo has dedicated his career to anti-aging therapies research and experimentation. In his first book “The Diet of Longevity“, which benefits have been donated to research, the scientist explains gradually the studies that led him to the creation of what we know now as the Diet of Longevity and the Fasting Mimicking Diet.

In the light of the discoveries that encourage a proper nutritional education, we get ProLon, the clinically tested kit for cellular regeneration and longevity!

The diet of longevity

The intention was to find a method that could be an integration strategy for standard cures and, as a result, open up new perspectives for improving existing therapies.

The Diet of Longevity, research:

Therefore, Pr. Valter Longo, the Director of the USC’s Longevity Institute in Los Angeles and the Institute of oncology at IFOM in Milan, has made food an advantageous and alternative tool that could make the difference for patients.

The Diet of Longevity is based on 5 disciplines that support the scientific evidence of the program. The use of these five areas of research has led to identify the positive and negative elements for our health.

Therefore, it is proposed as a real lifestyle, to adopt 365 days a year.

We can define it a modern version of the classical Mediterranean diet of our grandparents. A “poor” diet that favours the consumption of mainly plant-based food and low in animal proteins.

Epidemiological studies clearly showed how following the food tradition of our centenarians, made of simplicity, it is possible to heal our own body.

Let’s discover some aspects!

It sounds like a vegan diet, but actually, it is not!

Indeed, the diet of longevity includes fish 2/3 times a week and some eggs to ensure the contribution of all the amino acids we need.

According to the scientist, a fully vegan diet does not ensure to our body all the nutrients it needs, and does not always lead to positive effects. The concern is, in the long term this can lead to malnutrition.

The animal proteins, red meat ones, are totally excluded because they cause the growth of the hormone IGF-1, which promotes aging and, consequently, the various diseases related to aging.

Diet is like a set of molecules made to accelerate or reduce cellular aging. Eating well is important and even so the choice of what to put in your plate, the choice that must be seen as a mission whose goal is reaching the longevity.

The importance of physical activity!

Much of what we eat has a determining influence on our appearance and our psychophysical well-being, but at the same time, a sedentary lifestyle is considered to be one of the key factors in abdominal fat growth and development of cardiovascular diseases.

Physical activity is another mean of prevention. Longo explains that, if it is regular, it can promote the regenerative processes of our body.

In collaboration with the University of Verona, he adds, a study on muscle strength is starting with non-professional athletes. The main idea is muscular strength can increase independently of the increase of muscular mass.

A recipe for living up to 110 years old therefore exists. Do you know what the most surprising thing is? That you can live long and healthy!

Obesity is becoming a major social problem. The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes that obesity is one of the biggest public health problems of the 21st century.

Obesity: the fasting mimicking diet enables the reduction of the risks!

Obesity is becoming a major social problem. The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes that obesity is one of the biggest public health problems of the 21st century.

From 1975 to the present days, statistical and epidemiological data show that this phenomenon is becoming more and more usual, including among teenagers.

An alarming fact that results in a desire of a common action: cope with the growth of obesity by raising awareness.

Although genetics may have an impact, the main cause of obesity is an incorrect lifestyle and an inadequate diet.

In fact, over the years, the concept of a proper food culture has been lost. Especially among young people, perhaps because of the lack of adequate information (which should come from the private sector as well), but also because of the dietary patterns proposed by modern society, the trend to “eat badly” is increasingly widespread.

What are the risks associated with obesity?

Although it is not recognized in Italy, obesity is a disease that can lead to serious illnesses such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Bone and articular issues
  • Hypertension and cardiovascular problems
  • Sleep apnea
  • Respiratory problems
  • Cancer, including those of the colon, oesophagus, endometrium, kidneys, pancreas and thyroid
  • Metabolic syndrome

The fundamental role of dietary strategies:

Italy is at the forefront of prevention by proposing a balanced diet with the Mediterranean diet.

Nutrition is one of the factors affecting our health the most, states Professor Valter Longo, an Italian scientist, who concentrated his studies and research on this matching.

Indeed, according to Longo, food is the best ally for living longer and healthier. Many of his scientific projects aim at finding a therapy for diseases affecting people, including obesity.

The scientist has created a meal program that, in addition to adopting healthy eating habits, has also reduced the risk of various diseases that affect our body.

How to fight obesity

The ProLon® Fasting Diet and the Diet of Longevity are precisely this program, the result of 20 years of research.

The first is a controlled and safe 5-day caloric restriction, that consumption and cyclic application in patients suffering from pathologies, which must be established by a doctor, cause restorative and regenerative effects on the body.

The second could be described as a maintenance diet as a way of life that focuses on vegetables, good fats, grains and fish.

“You do not have to go far to meet people suffering from obesity, diabetes and heart disease. I helped an obese person who, for 15 years, had tried everything to lose weight, 111 kg. Given his risk of developing diabetes, I offered him four consecutive cycles of Fasting Mimicking Diet for three weeks under the strict supervision of his doctor and myself. This strategy worked. He has lost 14 kg, including a lot of abdominal fat, has gained energy and well-being in return. A year later, not only does he maintain his weight, but he continues to lose weight and says that the FMD has led him to change the way he eats “- from the book” The Diet of Longevity “.

However, changing your eating habits is only a step!

A sedentary lifestyle is another important factor that influences the risks associated with obesity. An adequate physical activity represents, with a correct diet, one of the tools of prevention and / or treatment of many pathologies.

So what are we waiting for to change our habits in order to cope with what it can be considered in all respects as a disease?

FMD The scientific method of PR Longo to purify the body, prolon

FMD: The scientific method of PR.Longo to purify the body!

Let’s talk about what initially seemed to be a passing trend and then turned out to be much more.

Indeed, the FMD (the Fasting Mimicking Diet) of Professor Valter Longo deserves to be seen in a larger scenario.

While it is true that interpretation is subjective, science and its results are rather objective!

Today, we are considering, in an objective way, the results of the research carried out by the Italian scientist in the epidemiological and clinical fields.

However, let’s start from the beginning!

Professor Longo applied his knowledge to medicine in the biochemical field.

A prolonged calorie restriction in mice, monkeys and humans has had positive effects to reduce certain types of diseases (diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases). Nevertheless, at the same time, it can expose our body, which is in a fragile condition, to collateral damages, which can be serious!

That is why the necessity of creating a method that not only ensures adequate nutrition, but it minimizes side effects as well.

FMD with ProLon® represents this method!

After years of research and clinical tests (because I repeat, before establishing some experimental results, the scientific method requires to perform all possible controls), the FMD aims at activating in our body, through a 5-day caloric restriction, a rejuvenation of the functional part.

Here are some results obtained on 100 patients:

  • Loss of abdominal fat
  • Reduction of blood glucose
  • Reduced blood pressure (in people with low blood pressure, it still unchanged)
  • Cholesterol reduction
  • Reduction of IGF-1 (a hormone associated with the outbreak of tumors)
  • Reduction of triglycerides

  Not forgetting the results obtained on mice:

  • Life extension of 11%
  • Reduction of inflammatory skin disorders
  • Rejuvenation of the immune system
  • Better motor coordination
  • Optimization of brain function
  • Reduced tumor incidence (the FMD group was less likely to become ill and, when this occurred, the nature of the tumor was benign).

A FEW DETAILS

  1. During “partial fasting”, a temporary decrease in lean body mass occurs. It returns to the initial values ​​when you go back to eat regularly. This temporary loss leads to muscle regeneration that also affects organs and the different systems. The FMD deceives our body into believing that it is fasting. Therefore, while eliminating unnecessary components, the stem cells promoting these processes are activated.

FMD – Cell regeneration

  1. The beneficial effects persist for months: it is shown for example that after 3 months from the end of a FMD cycle, the various changes affecting different areas of the body are still there at 60% and occur every time the protocol is applied.
  2. During 5 days, the body is in a state of ketosis, a process in which cells use alternative glucose substrates, i.e. ketones or fatty acids. For its measurement, it is better to contact a specialized laboratory.
  3. Several cycles of FMD, in a short period, are only recommended for people with weight issues or disease problems for which the doctor determines which cycle must be applied.
  4. The application of this periodic diet, in the event of a pathology, must be authorized by a specialist and must not be considered as substitution treatment, but possibly in combination with standard cures.

Studies on FMD in relation to certain diseases are constantly evolving. The data obtained so far gives us hope that a controlled periodic calorie restriction could be a new tool available in modern medicine to prevent and treat important diseases such as cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.

At the San Martino Hospital in Genoa, a study will begin not only on the different forms of Alzheimer’s, but also on chronic leukaemia!

THE THERAPEUTIC FASTING, The Prof Longo Fasting Mimicking Diet

The therapeutic fasting: the PR. Longo Fasting Mimicking Diet

Therapeutic fasting can improve your life at all levels, from the body to the mind.

In recent years, there has been a significant growth in the number of people undertaking this practice. However, it is fundamental that people who use this meal plan be aware of the strict rules that must be respected!

The aspects and consequences of therapeutic fasting

Therapeutic Fasting – Cell Regeneration

Therapeutic fasting is a real rehab. The body, at first, moves the previously accumulated toxins and then eliminates them.

There will be in our body an activation of a mechanism suitable for depuration of different sectors including tissues and organs.

However, beware! Fasting is not always recommended and not for everyone.

The processes activated during the fasting period are multiple and for this reason, it is better not to improvise a “DIY” method which has more contraindications than benefits.

The results in this case may be the exact opposite of expectations and sometimes the consequences are irremediable.

As a result, some collateral effects such as:

  • Reduced immune responses
  • Alteration of different systems (gastrointestinal and pulmonary)
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Heart failure

Pr. Longo and the Fasting Mimicking Diet

In 2015, in a study published in the famous scientific journal Cell Metabolism, Professor Valter Longo exposed the effects of fasting. Fasting activates powerful metabolic processes, that is why the scientist has formulated the Fasting Mimicking Diet, a food protocol that simulates such processes safely and while eating.

The Fasting Mimicking Diet is not a continuous diet, but it plans a caloric restriction for 5 days in a row. Therefore, it allows us to eat little but according to certain rules. The study conducted by Longo and his team of researchers, demonstrated how the effects of this diet could be beneficial for our body.

The beneficial effects of FMD

FMD-ProLon®

During the fasting period, Longo explains, the body focuses all its energy in the processes of healing and regeneration. In the presence of pathologies, this “smart” caloric restriction turns up to be effective in activating the repair processes of the tissues affected by the disease.

The goal of the FMD is to deprive our body of certain nutrients, such as glucose, in order to generate alternative energy resources. During Fasting Mimicking Diet cycles, a relative increase in stem cells has been observed.

Another fascinating aspect can be noticed from the research and the studies carried out, it relates to the significant reduction of the hormone IGF-1, a key regulator of cellular aging processes, and the outbreak of diseases associated with it.

By following the Fasting with food, risk factors for cardiovascular and metabolic diseases such as diabetes, or neoplastic diseases such as cancer, are greatly reduced!

The Fasting Mimicking Diet could be the first safe and effective intervention to promote positive changes.

EXTENDING LIFE THANKS TO A DIET: MY FEEDBACK ON THE FMD PROLON KIT!

Extending Life thanks to a diet: My feedback on the FMD Prolon Kit

“I remember I got home after a long working day, I wanted to relax on the couch and watch TV. That evening, a new episode of the TV show “le Iene” was broadcast. While writing an e-mail, it was almost never possible to disconnect completely, that TV show was broadcast on “how to extend life through the diet”.

I admit to I was surprised by hearing the word diet because recently, after deciding to stop smoking, I was led to use food as a palliative to avoid thinking about it. The result? I put on some weight! “.

Extending life through a diet: Anna’s direct feedback, who tried Prolon kit and discovered the benefits of fasting mimicking diet.

“As the program was going on I realized it was not about the common slimming diet. Professor Longo (whom I had never heard of before) interviewed by Nadia Toffa, explained that “prolonging life through the diet” was possible. What struck me most was the absolute revision of the concept of “caloric restriction” as well as the enthusiasm and satisfaction of Nadia for using this 5-day FMD kit.

Extending life with FMD diet

Once the interview was over (Click here to watch the video), I looked up to find out how it is possible to “extend life” thanks to Professor Longo’s scientific research-based diet. The next day I bought the book “The diet of longevity” in which the scientist related systematically the studies he carried out. In the following months, I followed the DL diet (longevity diet) and lost many of the accumulated pounds, as well as a positive feeling of well-being.

Driven by the positive effects, I was convinced to buy the Prolon kit, also available in the gluten-free version, because I’m celiac. I admit I have put aside the scepticism that generally distinguishes me, I did not think it was possible to prolong life through a diet but, if I decided to take this path, it is above all because according to the research carried out I understood that it was about a serious program, scientifically proven”.

That is how my 5 days started!

Extend your life, the benefits of the Prolon diet

“At first, I was a little worried because of my very intense rhythms that I thought could have been an obstacle: I live in Genoa but I work in Milan and I am the typical” commuter “who gets up every day at 6 am and returns at 9:30 pm. It was actually simpler than I thought! The preparations contained in the kit are almost all ready to use, so extremely are practical.

In addition, I did not expect freeze-dried products to taste as good! I would also like to find some of them in the shops, for example quinoa soup and kale cracker. ”

How to prolong life with Prolon? I tell you:

“A super positive experience: a lot of energy, no loss of strength. You realize that you do not need all the calories we usually introduce into the body to live and feel good. I was not hungry. I was expecting problems with constipation, perhaps because I thought that caloric intake did not guarantee a normal physiological process, but it was not.

My abdominal circumference has further decreased and my blood pressure has generally improved. Another interesting aspect is that, often suffering from cervical sinusitis and back pain, after 5 days, the frequency of both symptoms manifested lowered. I do not know if this beneficial effect can be found in the diet but it is certainly an aspect not to be underestimated.

In short, I had a feeling of general well-being that covered different aspects: from the brighter skin to the feeling of lightness and physical efficiency, from a greater capacity for creation and concentration to the good mood “.

What has changed after the FMD?

“After 5 days, the desire to have an increasingly healthy lifestyle continued and I decided to fully adhere to the rules of the diet of longevity. I had already started a mostly vegetarian diet before, preferring the plant-based proteins to animal proteins; I also reduced cheese. Thanks to the FMD, I had a great confirmation of why I felt better.

In addition, the second book “At the Table of Longevity” which contains many recipes of the Mediterranean culinary tradition. We immediately realize how, without great endeavour, we can fulfil the goal of health and longevity by respecting the food traditions of our grandparents. I think it’s a wonderful message!

“Prolonging life through diet’ is therefore possible. I personally recommend the Fasting Mimicking Diet, without any doubt, because, as I said before, the beneficial effects are obvious and it is reassuring that everything is based on scientific data“.

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS: THE POTENTIAL EFFICACY OF FASTING MIMICKING DIET.

Multiple Sclerosis: The potential efficacy of Fasting Mimicking Diet

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurodegenerative demyelinating disease, that is, with lesions affecting the central nervous system. Classified and recognized for the first time in 1868 by the French neurologist J.M Charcot, clinical and experimental evidence indicates that at the base of MS, the immune system reacts with attacking myelin T.

Over the recent years, research has made important discoveries about a pathology we might call “complex”, precisely because of the many different ways and forms in which it tends to reveal itself.

Although there is still no known cure for permanently eradicating the disease, studies have led to the identification of different approaches that contribute to improve the quality of life of people with MS.

The relevance of nutrition in people with multiple sclerosis.

Diet plays an important role in patients with multiple sclerosis. A nutritionally balanced diet and the choice of certain types of food help support the central nervous system.

A recent study, published in the prestigious scientific journal Cell Reports and led by Professor Valter Longo, highlights the combination that exists between the two factors.

Research and inquiry method on murine models

As Professor Longo says in his book “The Diet of Longevity”, in early experiments on mice, fasting activates stem cells in the blood, which in turn can generate cells of various types of the immune system.

It was necessary to understand if the “new” cells were also intended to become autoimmune. The idea aimed at feeding the mice with a type of diet imitating the effects of fasting and leading to the regeneration of healthy cells, first by destroying the damaged cells. The results were surprising!

The reduction of symptoms is remarkable, in particular the reduction of the percentage of harmful autoimmune components, that bring about an anatomical and harmful alteration in the affected part.

In 50% of the mice, a sharp decrease in symptoms was observed; while in 20% of them, complete remission occurred. FMD has regenerated damaged myelin in the spinal cord, i.e. the coating of neurons allowing the correct transmission of impulses from our nervous system.

Clinical trials on humans

Establishing the potential effectiveness of the FMD in patients suffering MS was possible through a pilot study of 60 participants.

The first group followed the FMD meal program for 7 days and over the next six months, a plant-based diet; the others a ketogenic diet,  and some did not change their feeding style.

The researchers assessed the quality of life of patients in the fasting mimicking diet cycle, with obvious improvements in physical and mental health.

Although the results are encouraging, Professor Longo said it was necessary to confirm them in the context of more thorough research on a larger number of patients.

We are waiting for your feedback!

A PROPER NUTRITION: THE OPINION OF THE EXPERT ALESSANDRO LAVIANO

A proper nutrition: the opinion of the expert Alessandro Laviano

Alessandro Laviano has a remarkable resume. Over the years, he has had different positions nationally and internationally. A doctor of internal medicine and nephrology at the Umberto I Hospital in Rome, he specialized in the field of nutrition and healthy eating, focusing his research on the benefits resulting from the integration of a pharmacological and nutritional approach to patients with pathologies such as cancer. Besides, Professor Laviano participated in the research that led to the Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD) as a teacher of Internal Medicine and Metabolic Diseases at “La Sapienza” University in Rome.

 

Healthy Eating: A Way to Prevent Disease

Healthy eating

Professor Laviano, nowadays, how important is healthy eating?

It is very important from a medical, social and economic point of view. There is a growing evidence that correct nutrition is a major asset in the prevention of chronic degenerative diseases and in recovery from disease. In addition, costs for the use of new treatments are excessively expensive for many health systems, but they do not always provide satisfactory results in terms of efficiency, have a look at recent examples in oncology. However, nutrition is an effective strategy that could reduce the need for pharmacotherapy for many patients. Even so, it is clear we will still need medicines to cure many diseases. Proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle can help drug treatments increase their effectiveness and reduce costs to the society.

What do you think of a diet able to reproduce the metabolic effects of fasting, which is essentially the aim of the FMD?

The role of fasting in disease prevention has been a topic of research for decades, but its transition from laboratory to daily life has always been limited by the inherent difficulty of following caloric restriction and periodic fasting for months and years. Therefore, being able to follow a diet that, being low-calorie can mimic the metabolic effects of fasting, allows us to obtain greater compliance with the program compared to a caloric restriction of several months or years.

Professor, on many occasions you have expressed your opinion on the “DIY” method. What are the drawbacks method this could cause?

Food is a powerful inducer of biological responses, just as food abstinence. The consequences of period of caloric restriction, even a short one, can be associated with particularly complex imbalances in hydro-electrolytes or carbohydrate metabolism. It is always better if those fasting mimicking diet periods are carried out using formulas validated and confirmed by thousands of subjects around the world. Unfortunately, when it comes to food, we all think we are experts. Actually, food, if properly handled, can act as a powerful beneficial drug, but in the meanwhile, it can lead to harmful metabolic alterations.

Why should a person choose the FMD as a food kit, scientifically and clinically formulated, rather than relying on a similar diet?

In addition to what I said previously, I think the important and practical motivation to follow the FMD in the form of a food kit is due to the beneficial and protective effects that have been proved only for the kit. Therefore, relying on another similar diet may not have the desired effects, and even bring about alterations of body composition.

You have followed several patients during the five days of the FMD, what did you conclude?

So far, I have been able to follow several healthy and ill subjects. I must say that no one has encountered any particular difficulty in following the FMD, proving that it is a diet that can easily be followed. The most surprising and often observed thing was the great energy that most of the subjects treated had, even during the period of FMD. Moreover, almost all the subjects who, before the FMD, reported osteoarticular pains, afterwards we noticed all the painful symptoms had totally disappeared.

Would you advise FMD, followed with the clinically approved method, to patients with certain pathophysiological conditions?

The FMD is safe in healthy subjects, and probably even more effective in patients with chronic and degenerative conditions. Of course, we need clinical studies to confirm this, but I already consider that it is possible to integrate the FMD into standard medical therapy after having explained everything to the patient and in agreement with the doctor who follows him or her.

Could this be a good integration to standard medicine?

Certainly, in order to increase its efficiency and not replace it.

According to your experience as a doctor, could you describe the fasting mimicking diet?

  • A simple and effective strategy
  • Contributes to achieve successfully aging
  • Helps live longer and better.

The six benefits of the fastinf mimicking diet

The six benefits of the fasting mimicking diet

THE SIX BENEFITS OF THE FASTING MIMICKING DIET

The Fasting Mimicking Diet, devised by Professor Valter Longo, if followed correctly, may represent an alternative way of finding the right balance with the body. According to the publication of the journal Science Translational Medicine, the potential benefits of this practice are numerous and their application extends to different fields, from the scientific field to the clinical one.

By repeating this cycle steadily over time, after a period varying between 3 and 6 months depending on the risk factors, Professor Longo explains that it would be possible to obtain a “cell regeneration” effect based on the death of non-efficient cells and on the production of new stem cells.

It does not deal with an actual fasting; the word “mimicking” suggests a diet that imitates the effects of fasting. The Fasting Mimicking Diet lasts only a few days, more exactly five days during which there will be an improvement of every feature of our body. Let’s analyse them together!

THE EFFECTS OF THE FASTING MIMICKING DIET

  1. Better preservation of cognitive functions. Adopting a low-calorie diet not only contributes to cellular regeneration but also helps to reinforce neural regeneration and enhance learning abilities.
  2. Reduction of abdominal fat with a significant increase in muscle mass in relation to body weight.
  3. Decrease of risk factors for cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. Studies assert that it would be able to repair pancreatic cells responsible for producing insulin.
  4. Significant improvement in blood pressure and cholesterol values ​​in subjects having the following alterations.
  5. The strategic deprivation of certain nutrients, not only prevents the risk of developing pathologies such as cancer, but it has also produced a decrease in the IGF1 hormone by stimulating the regeneration of tissues. The hormone IGF1 is necessary for growth during development. However, when we get older it is a cause of diseases in the process of cellular aging.
  6. A rejuvenation of the immune system, a kind of “reset” whereby about a third will be destroyed, and will be rebuilt during the refeeding, or when a normal diet is resumed.

The benefits of Fasting Mimicking Diet can be numerous and affect different areas of our body. Thanks to these 5 days of restriction, repeated steadily in time, clinical tests have determined the possibility of obtaining an effect of “reprogramming” internal cells, helping our body to cope with the passage of time.

My experience with the PROLON kit

My experience with the PROLON kit

My experience with the PROLON kit

Francesco Scarparo, 62, from Brindisi, is the owner of a sporting goods store. A year and a half ago, he learned of the The Fasting Mimicking Diet proposed by Professor Valter Longo via two clients. Intrigued, he decided to know more about it, thus taking a nutrition path that embraced the principles of the Longevity Diet, first with a “do-it-yourself” method, then choosing an easier and safer approach with the ProLon Kit of the Fasting Mimicking Diet.

NINE QUESTIONS INTERVIEW

  1. You enjoy good health. What did prompt you to adopt Pr. Longo’s vision?

Actually, I did not know the professor. Two of my clients told me about it. When my sister also started to follow the principles promoted by the latter, I decided to learn about the several scientific research and I told to myself: “Why not to try”. What impressed me most was the idea of ​​dietary education as well as the potential effect of cell regeneration through nutrition. I think it is essential to follow proper balanced diet, especially nowadays, we eat everything and we do it in a haphazard way, without thinking about the consequences that could be detrimental to our health.

  1. Why did you decide to buy the ProLon kit?

With my job, I am often away from home. I needed something easy and ready to use, but I wanted to follow this path with a scientifically proven and clinically safe method that would not compromise my health, while ensuring the desired effects. That is why I decided to buy the Prolon kit.

  1. Describe your 5 days of dieting … Did you face any particular difficulties.

Actually, I have not encountered any particular difficulties; the preparations are structured in a clear and simple way for each day. On the physical side, only on the third day I had a little headache, but otherwise, I did not suffer any side effects.

  1. What were the benefits?

Weight loss is the least important factor, with a FMD cycle; I lost about 4.2 kg / 4.3 kg. I have always been a person having a weak immune defence, the kind of person who falls easily sick. I have not been sick for a year and a half, that is to say, since I have been on this diet, my body temperature has stabilized. Moreover, every day, I constantly monitored my blood pressure and my heart rate and there were significant results!

  1. What are the results?

Before doing the FMD, I used to take half a pill to keep my blood pressure under control, but now I do not take it anymore! In addition, I always monitored my heart rate, which was around 75/70 BPM, while now at rest it is around 50/52 BPM. Besides, mental clarity and concentration have improved even after the end of the cycle.

  1. Do you practise any sport?

I have always been athletic, but I notice better physical feats. Moreover, the metabolism seems to have accelerated, for example, if before I used to burn for 1000 kcal in one hour, in the same amount of time, now I burn 2000 kcal!

  1. What did you like about the kit and what would you change?

Overall, different foods have good flavours. I particularly liked the walnut bar; however, I would change the tomato soup.

  1. The Fasting Mimicking Diet described in 3 words
  • Functional
  • Well-studied
  • Regenerative
  1. Would you recommend it? And how about the most sceptical people

I absolutely would recommend it, and to be honest I’m already doing it, because in my personal experience I only found positive notes. I would also like to add one last thing if you allow it. I have often heard of price, too high for the type of food in the Prolon kit. I would like to remind that components dosing is the result of years of scientific research, so they are not there by chance. In my opinion, this money has been well spent!

What would I say to the most sceptical?

Try it and we’ll talk about it again!
