A Healthy Approach to the New Year

The New Year provides a perfect opportunity to refresh your body for optimal health in the months to come.  We often tend to think of weight loss as the health resolution for the New Year, but here you are encouraged to consider a reset of your overall health.  An excellent tool for this is the fasting-mimicking diet.  The numerous benefits of fasting are well-studied and documented.  They include loss of abdominal fat as well as improved metabolic health with reduced cholesterol, blood glucose and insulin resistance.  Fasting also stimulates cellular renewal through stem cell regeneration for anti-aging effects and lowers the C-reactive protein level, an important marker of inflammation.

In order to achieve these benefits, fasting needs to be maintained for four to seven days.  Clearly, that is hard to do!  The ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet is a great solution.  The ProLon kit includes specifically designed meals and snacks that provide nourishment and stave off hunger while allowing your body to experience the fasting state and gain the positive effects mentioned.  At the end of the 5 days, users have noted increased energy levels, improved mental clarity, and visibly better skin. 

Good health requires a proactive approach.  A fasting-mimicking diet can help set you on the right path for wellness this year not only with its immediate effects, but also by helping you establish better eating habits going forward.  Dr. Herrscher can help you determine if the ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet is right for you, answer your questions and help you get started today.
