ProLon 5-Day Fasting Mimicking Diet that Works
At VIVA Wellness, we recognize that no two people are the same. And that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to losing weight. We completely customize the weight-loss programs we create for each and every client. It is for that very reason that we have many medical weight loss and wellness options available. One of our medical weight loss options is the ProLon® 5-Day Fasting Mimicking Diet. Want to learn more? Read on.
What is the ProLon Diet?
The ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet is a low-calorie, five-day eating program meant to promote weight loss quickly. The diet provides the same benefits as more traditional fasting methods, but you get to eat. It is for individuals who want to lose between 10-12 pounds in about a week. Why not give it a try? Is it low-commitment, provides quick results, convenient and effective. Not only is it a good way to lose weight, but it’s also a great way to reset occasionally to get back on track.
You purchase the kit from VIVA Wellness Clinic in Milwaukee. Then you follow the instructions—it’s really as simple as that!
How it Works
Fasting for short periods of time can have renewing and rejuvenating metabolic effects. But it can be difficult to stick to. Intermittent fasting, as it is sometimes called, has been known to help reduce belly fat. Researchers believe that when you are in a state of fasting, your body will begin to use the glucose and fat in your body as an energy source. That will lead to reduction in overall body fat.
Especially when starting to lose weight, fasting can be hard to do. Our willpower tends to crumble when we are hungry. So, a team of doctors at the Longevity Institute at the University of Southern California developed the ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet. The ProLon Diet is a 5-Day meal kit that allows the body all the benefits of a 5-day water fast BUT WITH the food! With ProLon, all the foods you need for a metabolic jump-start are included in the kit. Literally, just add water.
Benefits of ProLon:
- Decreases body fat
- Decreases body weight
- Preserves lean body mass
- 60% of weight loss is maintained 3 months after resuming a healthy diet
- Lowers inflammatory markers, such as CRP
- Maintains stable blood pressure and cholesterol levels
- Lowers triglycerides
- Helps the body enter autophagy, a renewing and rejuvenating cellular clean up process
- Promotes stem cell production, which can have anti-aging and renewing benefits
- Plant-based, gluten-free and lactose-free
The ProLon Diet kit is conveniently packaged with a combination of bars, soups, snacks, teas and vitamins. It’s not complicated to follow the plan. All the items in the kit are clearly labeled (days 1-5). So you’ll know exactly what to consume each day to lose the weight.
The foods included in the diet are a strategic and studied combination of fiber, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. There are specific calorie ranges to help your body enter a fasted-state, while keeping you nourished. So you won’t feel hungry.
Who should try the ProLon 5-Day Fasting Mimicking Diet?
- Someone who wants a metabolic jump-start—remember, it’s just a 5 day commitment
- Someone with a smaller initial weight loss goal (up to 10lbs.)—you CAN do additional cycles to meet individual goals or get back on track
- Someone who wants a step-by-step plan with ZERO guesswork—just eat the foods specifically labeled for each day
After the plan (days 1-5) you’ll enter into a transitional day (day 6). Fruits, juices, and smaller meals of veggies and protein are encouraged. On day 7, you’ll resume a normal, healthy diet. And that’s it, you’re done!
