Try this 5-day eating trick for a longer, better life… WITHOUT starvation

Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you broke out your “stretchy pants” and enjoyed your feast.

After all, it’s no time for dieting.

Those fads come and go… and almost NEVER work anyway.

There is an exception – an anti-aging approach to eating that’s all the rage these days.

It’s fasting.

Fasting can revive a sluggish metabolismkickstart weight loss by burning fat… rid your body of toxins… and protect you from everything from diabetes to cancer.

The only problem?

You’re DEPRIVED of food! Who wants to follow a diet like that??

Fortunately, there’s a way to TRICK your body into only THINKING it’s fasting!

It provides all the benefits of fasting – but you get to EAT the whole time.

Perfect ALL your numbers… without hunger

Hunger strike? Not on my watch.

Nobody likes DENYING themselves food. And now you don’t have to.

HSI advisor Dr. Glenn Rothfeld actually brought the ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD) to my attention a little while back.

“FMD” is just like completing a five-day fast

Except you get to eat real food!

And you won’t struggle with all that hunger… or those plummeting energy levels.

I know it sounds too good to be true… but the science backs it up.

Clinical studies out of the Longevity Institute at USC in Los Angeles have shown that the ProLon diet can:

  • SHRINK belly fat (more than an inch worth!) while retaining lean muscle mass
  • LOWER your “top” blood pressure number by nearly 4 points
  • REDUCE inflammation, as marked by a decrease in C-reactive protein levels
  • REJUVENATE your cells, as marked by a decrease in the aging marker IGF-1.

And you just need to devote five days to it, every few months.

In the periods of time in between, you’ll continue reaping the benefits of fasting… while eating normal amounts of healthy food.

That’s because when you start eating again after a short period of what your body THINKS is fasting, it “turns on” your stem cells…

And everything starts running like new again.

Who COULDN’T use a fresh start now and then?

Like traditional fasting, the FMD can help you live longer… and better

It can PROLONG not just your life, but your health, too.

Your brain cells will actually get younger. And one study showed how fasting made aging men feel LESS DEPRESSED.

There may be no shortcuts in life – or in health – but mimicking fasting is about as close as you’ll get.
