Prolon FMD

This blog was originally posted back in November 2018, but it warrants an update. L-Nutra, who makes the Prolon fasting mimicking diet (FMD) conducted a study on IBD and this product with phenominal results. Now the test was done on mice, not humans, but it prompted a human study which is being conducted right now. 

Additionally, I'm in the middle of a small flare. So I'm on day 5 of the 5 day plan, and I decided to look up on Pub Med any updates on fasting mimicking diets and this is what I found. This study has convinced me that I'm going to do the plan once a month for 4 consecutive months. Check out the study here:

It seems like extending the number of days on the plan would make sense to do to get quicker results, but this study indicates that the growth and replacement of damaged intestinal tissue occurs strongly during the re-feeding that follows after their one cycle FMD Prolon plan.

Additionally, I would always do a 3 day water fast when I had any issues with bowel movements that lead me to believe I was heading into a flare up. This article explains how fasting with food, as in this FMD is actually better than a water fast for rejuvination.

Finally, between the time I posted this in 2018, I returned to college and became a functional nutrition practitioner and Prolon is offered in my practice, usually at a reduced price. You can buy it here: Search ProLon in that online store for all of the options.

Now the information below, is all part of the original post back about two years ago.

Rich and I completed a fasting mimicking diet. It's much easier than the water fasting I have done in the past when my Crohn's was acting up. It's a little on the pricy side, but it is nothing compared to the cost of a stem cell injection and you get similar benefits.

The food tastes probably better than what you might expect, but a little bland. However, it's excellent quality, vegan, gluten free and non-gmo. Regardless, I feel great and lost exactly 5 lbs in 5 days, and that wasn't my main objective.

To justify the price I consider the $3.50 ish I spend a day on vitamins and an approximate $35 per day I would have spent on food if it was already prepared, and I can easily justify $45 per day to have something super convenient, that takes no more than 4 minutes to prepare.

On the other side of things, if I were to buy everything and create it myself, that may take so much time and effort, that for the first few times, it's simply going to be easier to use their product. I do have some ideas how to do it without getting it from Prolon, but I don't think that I'll save that much. It will be more about getting variety.

Regardless, it was very painless. The only side effect I had was a headache on day 2 and my appetite was a challenge on day 3. By day 5 I could have extended it a couple additional days, but only extended it one day, mostly because I didn't have to food supply on hand to extend it further.

Check out their website to see the additional benefits if you're interested:

My goal is to replace all of my autoimmune t-cells with healthy cells and concur my Crohn's. I am super excited about the results that have occurred with a FMD and am focused on doing what I can do to continue to manage this disease without medication.
