We missed out on vacations the last two summers because of travel restrictions and issues with trying to fly internationally. Sure, we made it to some local spots and were able to find some hidden gems, but we were supposed to celebrate some milestone events and were unable to. After a letdown around Christmas time because of travel issues, we’re finally set to hit the beaches of Mexico this summer. The only problem is that my body is more beach ball than beach ready.
I have just over a month to get my body closer to the size that I would like, so the idea of jumpstarting my weight loss with a 5-pound boost sounds enticing. So I decided to check out ProLon and see if I could find similar success to the other Prime Women that have tried it.
What is ProLon?
ProLon is an easy way to jumpstart your weight loss and potentially lose up to 5 pounds fast. It’s known as a Fasting Mimicking Diet® (FMD), which is basically a ‘fast’ where you still get to eat. I know, it seems like an oxymoron to fast with food, but the science is there to back it up. The ProLon FMD is a great option for those looking to lose weight because when they do it, they are not hungry even though, technically, their body thinks they are going on a 5-day fast.
The FMD® recipe allows your body to remain in a fasting mode despite consuming calories and losing weight – which is a much less painful way to drop some pounds than hitting the bike for an hour every day after eating a head of broccoli.
We’ve discussed the benefits of fasting time and again and looked at the various intermittent fasting methods so that you can choose the one that best fits your lifestyle. While the ultimate goal of fasting is longevity, ProLon is a fat-focused weight loss program. You will lose fat (especially belly fat) while protecting lean body mass. In fact, we took a look at the results from a clinical study of 5-day ProLon cycles monthly for three consecutive months. ProLon was shown in the study to help individuals lose an average of 5.7 lbs and 1.6 inches off their waist circumference. Wow.
If you’re worried about the FMD, you’ll find peace of mind knowing that it was developed at the University of Southern California Longevity Institute in L.A. They’re known to be at the forefront of studies on longevity and the life-extending benefits of fasting.
What Food Are You Fasting With?
This fasting-with-food meal plan is low in carbohydrates and proteins and contains good fatty acids. The FMD® recipe allows your body to remain in a fasting mode despite consuming calories.
ProLon ingredients are primarily plant-based, and it’s gluten-free and non-GMO. What will you get to eat each day? While doing the 5-day fast, you’ll eat a variety of 5 different soup flavors, sesame kale crackers, a chocolate dessert bar, olives, L-drink for energy, and supplements. While your hunger likely won’t be completely satisfied in the first day or two, your body will adjust, and you will be receiving the nourishment necessary to maintain your health.
In a nutshell, you’ll still get to eat soups and have an occasional snack, but they’re designed in a way that makes your body think you’re fasting, and it will react accordingly. You get the benefits of the fast without the pain of an empty stomach.
The results are in!
After taking on ProLon’s 5-day fast, I’m down 5 pounds! I know it doesn’t sound like a lot, but the new and improved number on the scale has been extremely motivating for me. It’s amazing how seeing progress makes you crave more, so I’ve stayed on a healthy diet and started back to my daily exercise routine. Of course, finally having beautiful sunny days are making it a lot easier to get outside and get active, and it makes it feel like the perfect time to get my health back on track. I feel like I’m having my own spring awakening, and it feels good.
