When we published the article The Key to Weight Loss and Longevity on April 14th of this year, I knew there would be a lot of skeptics. I would have been skeptical myself if I hadn’t known about the University of Southern California Longevity Institute in L.A. for a number of years. I knew their work and I also knew that the scientists were so sure of their discoveries that they applied for numerous patents around their findings. The whole idea around ‘fasting with food’ is such a novel idea that I sensed they had hit upon something that would be a game-changer in the weight loss world. What is really interesting though is that weight loss is really a by-product of the Prolon program that was developed to increase longevity. Their research found that multiple cycles support cell rejuvenation for healthy aging. Something we all are in favor of by this stage of life!
But back to weight loss… The results are in and they are impressive. We’ve heard from numerous women who’ve tried at least one 5 day Prolon fast. Below is a recap of what real women had to say about their experience and their results.
“I did not find the 5 day Prolon fast difficult at all. The soups weren’t bad and I actually really enjoyed the tomato soup. I missed the afternoon snack on days 3 and 5, but otherwise, no complaint. For some reason, I did sleep an hour less each day on the fast, but I wasn’t tired at the end of the day. I’m going to try it again next month. It really helped me reset my eating.” Cindy J. 69 LOST 5 LBS
“Thank you so much for posting this article about the Prolon 5 day fast! I was about to do one of my Ketone fasts, which is basically just drinking ketones for 3 days and sucks, but then I saw this and thought I would give it a try. I will most likely do the next 2 months as recommended as well. The soups are not the tastiest but they aren’t horrible, LOL. I will continue to use the bars as breakfast until next month’s fast cause they are actually delicious!! Heather M. 41 LOST 8 LBS
“I have learned that I can live on less food and not snack. I didn’t really crave anything, but I will say I was hungry most of the time. I liked some of the soups better than other, crackers were good and liquid that we were asked to drink all day was tasty. It did make me try food I normally don’t eat. Not thinking about what I was going to eat in a day was very pleasant. Reinforced planning meals out for the week.” Stephanie W. 56 LOST 6 LBS
After having lost 15 lbs. on PLATE, I still had 5 lbs of stubborn fat that I really wanted to lose. Prolon fast sounded perfect. I really liked having the food ready with a box for each day that told me exactly what to eat. I didn’t like drinking the one cup of coffee that was allowed each day without creamer or sugar. However, after 5 days I was able to cut out the sugar for good! I didn’t like olives but by the end of the 5 days, I actually liked them. I did not think it was hard to stay on the program for 5 days. The reward far outweighed the sacrifice. I have a lot more energy and feel great. I don’t need to lose anymore weight but I could see myself going on more Prolon fasts for the health benefits. Peggy J. 68 LOST 5 LBS
“I’ve done Whole 30 in the past and had success in losing weight, 8 lbs after a month. However, it is hard to sustain that type of eating and I put the weight back on after a few months, so I decided to give the Prolon fast a try. Unfortunately, I started the fast and had a client dinner I couldn’t rearrange and it hurt my weight loss. I would advise making sure you can clear your calendar before you start. It wasn’t that hard to stay on the program but, other than the bars, the food was very bland. Plus side, it was over quickly, unlike Whole 30. Will do it again, for sure. Amanda R 46 Lost 4 LBS
“I’m a terrible dieter. Really don’t like to deprive myself of anything which is why I kept trying to lose the same 5 lbs for 25 years! I gained weight as soon as I started menopause which totaly freaked me out because I had never put on weight. The older I got the harder it became, and in fact, the 5 lbs became 7 lbs. This time, I really put my mind to it and stuck with it all 5 days, and low and behold, I lost 5 lbs! After 5 weeks, I had gained back 2 1/2 lbs (blame it on the wine) and started another Prolon 5 day fast, this time I lost 4 1/2 lbs! Was it easy, heck no! Very hard, and by day 5, I was ready to throw in the towel but I didn’t. I’ve visisbly lost fat in all the places where I’ve put it on over the years. All I can say is Prolon works and it works better than any diet I have ever tried! Donna M 71 After 2 fasts LOST 8 LBS
“I’ve tried every weight loss program invented. All of them work if you stick with them. Of course, that is the problem. You deprive yourself for three or four weeks to lose a few pounds that come right back on when you go back to eating like you normally do. What I loved about the Prolon 5 day fast mimicking diet was that it was just 5 days! You can do anthing for 5 days and the results were fantastic. Also, it really has reset my eating to where I’m not eating as much and I’m using the Fast Bars to practice intermittent fasting. I can see myself doing the Prolon program once every month until I reach my goal of losing 20 lbs. In the long run, I will spend less money and enjoy my life more. Angela S 52 LOST 5 LBS
“I’ve been using PROLON for over three years… And I can honestly say it’s the best detox/mock fast that I have ever tried. Intermittent fasting makes sense but taking five days and doing a fast where you get to eat yummy food, is the best of all worlds! I love the way PROlON makes me feel (however I will admit that on Wednesday by end of day 3, I’m feeling a bit hungry! Before and after that “hump day” I feel great. I love the discipline PROLON provides… The fact that I can only eat what is in the box that is prescribed for that day helps me “not cheat“. I also love love love the olives, the bars, and especially the tomato basil and quinoa soups! In fact, I have called the company on several occasions to see if any of them could be purchased separately and I was thrilled when they came out with their new Fast Bars! I especially love the cocoa chip bars. And can’t believe it keeps you within your intermittent fasting schedule without breaking your fast. I also love the glycerin water. PROLON has me drinking water throughout the day and gives me energy and clarity around the way my thinking works. A side benefit is that I typically will drop 3 to 4 pounds in the five day fast… But I feel fabulous and then look forward to the next time (which I now do every 2 to 3 months). I especially like using it after holidays or vacations or times when I feel like I just need to reset, cleanse, feel better. I am a fan!” Toni P.
