Prolon Fasting Mimicking Diet – Cure to Visceral Fat?

The Prolon FMD is a great way to effectively and efficiently do a metabolic detoxing cleanse at the cellular level, in just 5 days. I’ve done it three times now, and plan on doing it every 3-6 months as a metabolic tune-up.

What is the Prolon Fasting Mimicking Diet?

  • Allows you to achieve a Fasting state, while still consuming the maximum amount of nutrients and calories possible
  • Over the course of 5 days, the body essentially begins to reset and renew itself, using the heavily researched methods from Dr Longo’s lab.
  • Designed by Dr Valter Longo, director of USC’s Longevity Institute and author of The Longevity Diet
  • Based on 30 years of research into what helps humans live a long and fit life
  • Curious about the Science?  Dr Longo’s TedX talk is good. I also hear that it was featured on Goop Lab on Netflix.
  • The foods are a tasty enough (for a cleanse) mix of powdered soups, custom protein bars, crackers and a glycerol drink.
  • While the food itself is definitely nothing to write home about, the results absolutely are.


As for results, and do they stick?  Below is a chart for a 3 month period where I did the prolon diet twice mid-pandemic.  Now, I won’t tell you the exact numbers, but I will say that there is a 10# delta between the top line and the bottom line.  While you can see that there was some return of weight, the overall baseline persisted.

This is just a snippet of information that I wanted to get out to you while I was thinking about it.  There is a ton more information about this specific packaged diet, and on fasting mimicking out there on the internet.
