Floating on a fasting high
Hi, and welcome to Day #4 with Prolon & me!
Day 4 puts you in the final stretch and you may experience a “fasting high” – calm, settled, no hunger, and “light” as some have described it. Of course, you may be a little lighter (in weight, that is) as food has been slight but generally satisfying during the program.
By this time you’re at the peak of cellular rejuvenation and cellular recycling. Your body settles down. Hunger diminishes. It’s an easy feeling as you approach the finish line and many even ask me if they can continue – which is not recommended. All the work the body’s doing during the five days prepares it for rebuilding a stronger you. And to do that it needs nutrition – food.
What you’re eating . . .
Food varies only slightly from day to day during the Prolon 5-day fast. There are different soup varieties, snacks from olives to kale crackers, Prolon’s “L-Bar”, a meal in itself, and all in all, what you’re eating is similar from day to day.
The research on fasting
As a provider of the Prolon FMD, making medical claims about Prolon fasting is a no-go. Because everyone is different and responds differently to any program, general claims are impossible to make.
Nevertheless, there’s a large body of research indicating that fasting goes beyond helping people drop a few pounds and triggers changes deep in the body to support your overall health. Things like . . .
- Improved immune regulation
- Increased stem cell regeneration – to rebuild and replace old and damaged cells
- Improved metabolic and cardiovascular health
- Improved blood sugar regulation, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels
- Decreases in inflammation
Fasting, when properly implemented and combined with a healthy diet can be a gamechanger. For those with medical conditions or other health issues, it is always recommended to consult and/or work with your medical practitioner.
In Dr. Longo’s words . . .
“Among the longevity factors within your control, what you eat is the primary choice you can make that will affect whether you live to 60, 80, 100, or 110 – and more important, whether you will get there in good health.”
One more day to go! Hang in there and I’ll see you tomorrow! ♥
