04 Aug Do you want to gain more energy? Lose weight? Help your body work more for you than against you?
The Fasting Mimicking Diet
The Fasting Mimicking Diet developed by Valter Longo, Director of the Longevity Institute of University Southern California has had much buzz in the medical community. Per Longo, this diet or system helps “guides your body into a fasting state to get all the health benefits that come from long fasts.”
The Fasting Mimicking Diet has the ability to optimize your body through focused nutrition. By only doing this system for 5 days per month, you can alter your aging process, improve mental performance, regenerate cell behavior, maintain healthy levels of blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol plus LOSE WEIGHT.
My personal experience after the first month was to intentionally be focused for 5 days that I would not be prone to fail (i.e. planning vacation, girl’s night out, birthday party), and be deliberate and disciplined. Truthfully, I was more tired during those 5 days and had to maintain a good amount of sleep at night. BUT that wasn’t a bad thing. It was a sign of my body changing. I came out of it with less cravings and improved mental clarity and energy.
However, before you plunge in, note that this kind of diet or system is not appropriate for everyone, especially pregnant women and people on certain medications. Discuss this with your medical doctor before starting it to see if this is a good fit for you.
Take a peak and take a plunge to a healthier you.
