The fasting mimicking nutrition programme is fasting, but with food.
Traditionally, the most potent way to fast was a five-day, water-only fast. Now you can fast with food. Get all the benefits of water fasting, but with more than just water!
Prof Longo develops the fasting mimicking and longevity diet
The fasting mimicking nutrition programme was developed by Prof Longo at the Longevity Institute of Southern California. After decades of research, it was discovered that it is possible to induce all the benefits of fasting while still eating a small amount of food each day as described in his best-selling book, The Longevity Diet.
Fasting with Food is not Cheating
The small amount of food is sufficient to provide the nutrients and energy you need during the 5-day programme without extreme hunger. You will have all the energy you need to go about your daily life. The programme tricks the body into responding in a similar way to fasting on water. The result is the induction of a profound detox at the cellular level known as autophagy. This process cleans up any cellular waste products for recycling. Autophagy is followed by cellular and organ regeneration.
The fasting mimicking programme is the perfect metabolic reset. A clinical trial reported healthier levels of inflammatory markers and cholesterol, healthier blood pressure and blood sugar levels, lean body weight, smaller waist circumference and overall good health.
Users report a physical, mental, and emotional reset
The fasting mimicking diet is a real physical, mental and emotional reset. People who have completed the fasting mimicking programme report they are more motivated to adopt a healthier lifestyle, more mindful of what they are eat, have more control over their health, and established healthier eating habits including better portion control and increased ability to resist sugary foods. The also reported less food cravings once fast was complete, improvement in mental clarity and focus, and greater energy levels.
