Fasting Mimicking Diet

The Fasting Mimicking DIet

involves short-term calorie restriction to simulate the health benefits of fasting while nourishing the body with essential nutrients.

recent clinical trials suggest the fasting-mimicking diet (FMD) improves weight loss and markers associated with chronic disease

prolon 5-day diet

ProLon provides everything you need in one box. So, I purchased a kit to give fasting-mimicking a try.

Daily Calories

Day 1 - 1,065 calories Day 2 - 939 calories Day 3 - 712 calories Day 4 - 712 calories Day 5 - 721 calories

All meals are plant-based and packed with micronutrients and healthy fats.


I tracked fasting glucose and ketone levels, which showed I reached ketosis by day 3.


Actual weight loss

What's more impressive is that I lost 8 pounds in 5 days on the diet.

did you get hungry?

The diet wasn't as hard as traditional fasting. Of course, I got hungry, but the meals were surprisingly satisfying.

I definitely see the value of fasting-mimicking diets. But in the future, I would probably opt for a DIY version to save money and incorporate more foods I like.

would you do it again?
