My Love of ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet


IMG_5031.jpg

Summer is right around the corner and now is the perfect time to get your body feeling and looking its best! I have completed 9…yes, 9 rounds of ProLon!  ProLon was a suggestion from my internal medicine doctor in Austin, TX that regulated my hormones and age management. I try to schedule ProLon quarterly but more often if needed. I truly could not be happier with the results and how I feel.  

The 5-day ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet has been clinically tested to support: 

Weight Loss*: Targeting stubborn visceral belly fat

Metabolic Balance: Helping maintain a healthy level of systolic blood pressure

Cellular Rejuvenation: Enhancing autophagy (the removal of old, worn-out cellular components)

Performance: Enjoying greater energy and focus

Healthy Aging: Brought on by weight loss, metabolic balance, and cellular rejuvenation

Additionally, you will experience the weight management benefits of changing your relationship with food. This includes reduced cravings (sugar for me), eating smaller portions, and feeling more in control of what you eat after finishing ProLon.

The first time I tried the plan I was, of course, nervous. I am “that girl” that will try almost anything for my health but was skeptical, as the plan only lasted 5 days. Each time I complete a round of ProLon, I journal how I feel, my weight, and my side effects. I NEVER cheat as I don’t want to ruin what I work so hard to achieve…results! ProLon suggests not working out during the plan but I know my body so well that I continue my workouts, but just scale back a bit if my energy is lacking.

I typically begin on a Monday, ending on a Friday as I have too many temptations on weekends. Weekdays work out much better for me. Follow along with my own #ProLonJournal as I document my personal experience with the program.

Day 1: I am excited about a new beginning and feeling better.  I really am not hungry as the calories are fine today and the food is good.  I love olives, so this addition makes me happy. The kale crackers take a bit to get used to (and I LOVE kale).  I also am not a fan of honey…meaning the bars are a bit sweet for me. All is well and I know I will adore my results by the end of the plan!

Day 2: The food truly is good, I promise! The soups are well done and the snacks are a plus. The L-drink gives me energy and I infuse with the hibiscus tea, provided.  I will say, I am beginning to experience a bit of gas which is uncomfortable…but I’m moving forward. I am not accustomed to a plant-based diet so I think that is the culprit, let’s see!

Day 3: This is the most difficult day for me as the calories are reduced and I just need to keep focused by staying busy! Thank goodness for the L-drink and I am slamming a ton of water! One major perk I have already noticed…I am sleeping better!

Day 4: My gas continues to be uncomfortable and I haven’t figured out why but, I’VE GOT THIS! I have signed up for the daily motivation emails (I HIGHLY recommend), which helps me to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Day 5: Today is the last day and I’m so excited! I am ready for something in my meal plan that is not soup!!  Although the soups are really good, I’m ready for a bit of crunch. It is Friday and heading into the weekend, I am so ready to be done!  

Day 6: I did it…transition day! I am so happy! My mind is clear, I truly (not sure how) have a better attitude, sleeping better, and MOST important…my pain and inflammation are down. I “typically” lose between 5 to 7 pounds and will continue to lose a bit in the upcoming days and weeks. ProLon shares ways to transition back to your healthy diet, which I recommend you to follow!

I simply cannot recommend this program enough! If you have ANY questions, please reach out in the comments. I would love to answer any questions or concerns you might have.

    I am in day 5, and I’ve had really rough day. Tomorrow I start the refeed. I’m going to have sauteed onions, yellow squash, and zucchini for breakfast. I’m going to have a tomato, cucumber, and lettuce sandwich for lunch. A friend of mine has invited me to his house for Thursday Night Football. He knows I am becoming vegetarian and is ordering one of the new Beyond Burger pizzas from Pizza Hut tomorrow night and a big salad. Do you think Pizza will ruin my refeed?
