What is a Fasting Mimicking Diet and What are the Health Benefits of Fasting

What is fasting?

Fasting is the intentional abstinence of food for a period of time with the intent of achieving health benefits. There are different methods of fasting including water fasting, intermittent fasting, time restricted fasting, and fasting with food aka the fasting mimicking diet.

What is a fasting mimicking diet?

A fasting mimicking diet is one that provides you with enough nutrients and calories to make the fast manageable while putting your body in a fasting state. What this means is that you're getting all the same benefits as a traditional fast, but with food aka no growling stomach!

By day 2 of the FMD your body will be in fat burning mode, targeting that visceral fat that surrounds your organs. On day 3, autophagy begins. This is your body getting rid of the unhealthy cells that you don't want. By day 5 your cells longevity effects are kicking in and improved mental clarity is often reported.

Isn't a true fast more beneficial?

A true water-only fast is extremely challenging for the majority of people. It requires careful medical supervision to mitigate the risks that are involved. A FMD is safe for the majority of people and the is much more achievable than a true water fast while still offering the same health benefits.

What are the benefits of a FMD?

  • Cellular clean up

  • Weight loss

  • Healthy HbA1c levels

  • Lowered cholesterol

  • Digestion support

  • Enhanced clarity

  • Improved energy

Is FMD vegan friendly?

I offer the Prolon FMD kits in my office. This diet is made up of plant based ingredients and is free of dairy, gluten, and eggs. The breakfast bars do contain honey so they are not vegan.

Is fasting safe for everyone?

Women that are either pregnant or breastfeeding are not good candidates for doing a FMD. Otherwise, talk to your doctor to see if a FMD is a safe option for you.
