If your wedding day is approaching, or if it's the lead up to someone else's big day, the chances are you may be thinking about shaping up! If you don't have time to follow a wedding diet plan, fasting maybe the answer.
New research into fasting is turning traditional nutrition advice on its head. We’re now learning that going for extended periods of time without food can provide a wide range of benefits. Fasting has been shown to promote health and longevity by reducing numerous disease risk factors and promoting cellular regeneration.
When carried out in the right way, fasting will not automatically result in a reduced metabolic rate or rebound weight gain as once believed.
The benefits of fasting are well-documented but for any people, especially in the run up to a wedding, the thought of giving up food and surviving solely on water makes the idea of fasting a no-go. What if there was healthy and safe way to gain all the benefits associated with calorie-restriction, but without having to stop eating?
Fasting could be the answer for your wedding diet
Step up ProLon®, a ground-breaking new five-day plant-based meal programme that nourishes the body while convincing it that it is in full- on fasting mode. Known as a Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD), ProLon® means that for the first time in history fasting with food is possible.
Developed at the Longevity Institute of the University of Southern California (USC) and based on over a decade of research and development, ProLon® is scientifically proven to enable people to live longer, healthier lives.
"Periodic fasting is a powerful practice for helping the body thrive, despite negative impacts from our modern lifestyles, exerting positive effects on our cells and systems throughout the body." says Nutritionist Kim Pearson. "Based on over a decade of research and development, ProLon® is scientifically proven to enable people to live longer, healthier lives."
ProLon® meals come in five small boxes (one for each day) that include plant-based energy bars, soups, a variety of gluten free snacks, drinks, and supplements, all studied and carefully designed to nourish your body and promote positive changes in metabolic markers, cellular rejuvenation, reduced inflammation, and healthy aging. The daily caloric intake with ProLon is between 770 and 1100 calories from healthy ingredients that maximise nourishment and provide a pleasant eating experience.
Vicky Eldridge, 39, who worked with nutritionist Kim Pearson and Prolon to lose weight for a friend's wedding said. " Prolon was great. It helped me lose an initial half stone very quickly and motivated me to keep going.. It also showed me I could eat much smaller portions of food than I had been ."
