ProLon® Is intended for use by healthy individuals who want to optimise their health and wellbeing; by overweight or obese individuals who want to manage their weight in an easy and healthy way; and by people who have well-known markers for chronic and unhealthy conditions.
All candidates for the ProLon® diet must fill out a health self-assessment in order to determine their suitability for the programme. If the results are uncertain in any way, you will be referred to a healthcare provider.
How to take ProLon®
Consume the ProLon® meal plan for 5 consecutive days every 1 to 6 months based on need and recommendations by you healthcare provider.
Do not consume any other food and preferably no additional liquid other than water. Your doctor can approve exceptions.
Resume your normal diet for the rest of the month, making sure to undergo the one-day transition diet at the end of the 5 days.
Full instructions included in each ProLon® carton.
How Often Should Patients Follow The 5-Day ProLon® Diet?
If the health assessment confirms you are a low risk or healthy individual, 2-3 times a year is recommended. Other frequencies would need to be discussed with your healthcare provider.
