Surviving the ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD)

The ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD) has gained a dedicated following as an effective way to reset your body and promote overall wellbeing. The five-day fasting programme is designed to optimise your health, stimulate cellular rejuvenation and promote longevity. While the concept of restricting your calorie intake might seem daunting, we've compiled a list of top tips from satisfied ProLon customers from ProLon's Facebook support group to help you make the most of your FMD journey. 



Here are the tips to know: 


  1. Declutter Temptations: Before starting the FMD, clear out any unhealthy or tempting foods from your house. This minimises the likelihood of slipping during the fasting period. 

  1. Timing is Everything: Start your FMD during a non-busy week when you can focus on self-care and manage potential challenges without added stress. It’s not a good idea to do it over social events like weddings or birthdays. 

  1. Sunday Start: Kickstart your FMD on a Sunday when you have more time to ease into the diet without the pressures of a typical workday, and have weekday distractions during the majority of the programme. 

  1. Approach It Seriously: If you liken the FMD to a medical procedure that demands seriousness and dedication, you can treat it with the respect it deserves for the best results. 

  1. Remember Your Investment: Remind yourself of the investment you've made in your health. The FMD is designed to benefit your body and mind, and you're taking a significant step towards a healthier you. 

  1. Sleep Late and Eat Late: If hunger pangs bother you in the morning, consider sleeping in a bit and eating your first meal later in the day. 

  1. Delay Breakfast: Hold off on having breakfast until 3 pm. This approach helps your body ease into the fasting state and prevents you from late-night hunger pangs that might keep you awake. 

  1. Hot Tea to the Rescue: To manage hunger and cravings, sip on hot tea, especially herbal teas. They can help you feel more satisfied, offer detoxifying benefits and offer a comforting ritual. 

  1. You Can Do It: Believe in yourself and recognise that you are fully capable of completing the FMD successfully. Trust in your abilities. 

  1. Harness Your Willpower: Strengthen your willpower and commitment to complete the FMD successfully. Focus on the positive outcomes it can bring. 

  1. Stay Hydrated: Hunger is often mistaken for dehydration. Keep yourself hydrated by drinking a large glass of water or a cup of herbal tea. It supports your body during the fasting period. 

  1. Tailor Your Snacks: Adjust your snack portions to suit your preferences. You can either eat half at a time to spread them out or save some to enjoy with dinner for a more substantial meal. 

  1. Commitment and Dedication: Stay focused on your commitment to your health and dedicate yourself to the process for the best results. 

  1. It's Just 5 Days: Remember, it's only five days. Remind yourself that you can endure anything for just a short period. 

  1. Stay Busy: Keep yourself occupied during the FMD to prevent fixating on food. Engage in activities you enjoy or tackle those projects you've been putting off. 

  1. Avoid Overexertion: While staying busy, don't overexert yourself during these five days. Listen to your body and prioritise rest when needed. 

  1. Treat Yourself in Non-Food Ways: Pamper yourself during the FMD with relaxation techniques, spa treatments, baths or any self-care rituals that bring you comfort. 

  1. It Gets Easier: Many customers report that each round of the FMD becomes easier as they become more accustomed to the routine and benefits. 

By following these top tips from satisfied ProLon customers, you can enhance your FMD experience and make the most of these five days of fasting to achieve improved wellbeing and rejuvenation. Always consult your healthcare professional before starting any new dietary programme, especially if you have underlying health conditions or concerns. Embrace the process and refer to these tips to keep you on track to the benefits that await you.
