Frequently Asked Questions
ProLon® is the first Fasting Mimicking Diet™ (FMD™) developed to provide the beneficial effects of fasting by making the fasting mimicking period safe and pleasant. ProLon®, which contains plant-based soups, bars, crackers, olives, drinks, and supplements, is a proprietary 5-day dietary program, providing approximately 750 to 1100 calories per day. It is based on innovative research carried out at two of the world’s leading centers for biomedical and longevity research located at the University of Southern California (USC), the Longevity Institute and the Diabetes and Obesity Research Institute. This revolutionary meal plan has been scientifically designed and clinically tested to mimic the effects of fasting, while providing the proper daily nourishment and the feeling of satisfaction.
ProLon® was shown in clinical trials to have beneficial effects on a wide variety of markers: it decreases abdominal fat while increasing relative lean body mass, decreases fasting glucose, reduces C-reactive protein (a marker of inflammation), and reduces IGF-1 (associated with increased DNA damage mortality and aging in humans).
A Fasting Mimicking and Enhancing™ Diet (FMED™) is a high nutrition, low protein, low carbohydrate meal plan, clinically proven to beneficially change a wide range of biomarkers associated with aging, poor health, and inflammation. (See Question 2).
The diet should be used for 5 consecutive days per month (30 days) after which the patient will transition for 1 day and then resume their normal diet. Instructions are provided in every carton. A specific combination of food is provided on each day for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. All food provided on a specific day should be taken on that day only. While a meal missed can be made up at any time during the same day, there should be no carryover from one day to the next. The 5-day diet should be taken as often as is recommended by the healthcare professional.
The amount of weight loss varies by individual. A healthcare professional will be able to discuss this during consultation and work with the patient on meeting weight goals.
Depending on the medical illness or disease, past medical history, and current medications, the ProLon® dietary program might be combined with the standard of care treatment; however, ProLon®cannot be prescribed to prevent or treat diseases. Contact the healthcare provider most familiar with the illness or disease to discuss the ProLon® dietary program.
As the ProLon® dietary program is designed to provide all of the supplements and nutrients needed, no additional multivitamins or supplements should be taken during the diet period; however, the options should be discussed with the supervising healthcare professional.
