Heard about fasting? It is defined as, “abstinence from eating.” What this diet has the potential for in medical benefits has increased quite substantially — both in animal and medical research. Inventor of the Fast Mimicking Diet (FMD) Dr. Longo is recognized as a leading expert on longevity and has done intense work in biochemical pathways. In other words the way cells and we as humans age. This diet can change all that!

What is so special about the FMD?

After years of experimenting with FMD in animal models and showing its benefits on metabolism and life span, Dr. Longo’s team analyzed the effects in human clinical trials. One hundred healthy subjects participated with half of them following the Prolon FMD five days a month for three months, while the other half ate their regular diet.

  • Profound differences were seen in terms of:
  • Weight loss
  • Visceral fat loss
  • Drop in:
  • Blood pressure
  • Blood sugar
  • Blood cholesterol
  • Markers of inflammation (FMD participants)
  • Drop in insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1); (this is a biomarker for cancer growth).
  • Increase in stem cell production, (this is a marker for cell regeneration).

This diet works by shifting the body’s metabolism and enhancing the power of cells to help protect against chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. This idea is beginning to catch on: according to a 2018 survey from the International Food Information Council Foundation, intermittent fasting was last year’s most popular diet. Dr. Longo is now studying if a fast-mimicking diet can improve cancer ­outcomes and help prevent the disease.

Dr. Longo addresses the point that the more healthy food an individual chooses, the more one can eat. Individuals can still eat fats like pesto, and starches like pasta. The benefits happen when the individual loads up on produce. This brings in more nutrients, more fiber and the feeling of being more full. Dr. Longo is also working on the ability to train an individual’s body to eat within a 12-hour day, which acts as a quick fast overnight.

Los Angeles, Calif.July 31, 2018—On July 10, L-Nutra, Inc. became the first company to market a product that has been granted a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for optimizing human healthspan, the length of time that a person is healthy. This follows a landmark patent issued in 2016 for treating diabetes and multiple patents previously issued for cancer treatment, but this is the first patented protocol to address health and wellness prior to the onset of disease. The patent is for the Fasting Mimicking Diet® (FMD®), discovered and clinically tested by the laboratory of Valter Longo and Keck Hospital at the University of Southern California (USC), a nutrition technology that is proven to reduce markers for age-related disease as well as promote tissue regeneration.


The Fasting Mimicking Diet is one of few nutri-technologies that has undergone extensive scientific research and clinical trials at major universities across the world. Last year, a landmark human trial published in Science Translational Medicine demonstrated that ProLon is clinically proven to reduce markers of the body’s aging process, optimize weight, and maintain healthy levels of multiple metabolic markers such as cholesterol, triglyceride, glucose, and CRP (an inflammatory marker). The secret to the Fasting Mimicking Diet relies on the body’s activation of the epigenetic, metabolic, and cellular reprogramming to survive prolonged periods of fasting.

  • Nuts
  • Olives
    Requires eating whole olives (note if you dislike olives)

How to Use The ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet

Ready For The FMD?

What you want to know. To achieve the published results, one will possibly need to go through three cycles at specific times, where they don’t conflict with family/social events like birthdays, weddings, quinceaneras, etc. After three months some will choose to do the program monthly or every other month for long-term health.

Increased Brain Power Study

  • Preliminary studies with FMD showed remarkable brain changes
  • FMD fed to mice four days in a row twice a month:
  • Extended longevity
  • Lowered visceral fat
  • Reduced cancer incidence and
  • Skin Lesions
  • Rejuvenated the immune system
  • Slowed down bone density loss
  • In old mice, FMD cycles promoted:
  • Brain growth
  • Demonstrate improved cognitive performance
  • It is possible that the best brains may result from the least caloric intake for five days a month
