Our medical practice has been using ProLon, the unique Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD), longer and with more patients than any other practice in the nation. As a result, we were selected to develop the first ProLon Center of Excellence. Our Comprehensive ProLon Program combines the incredible health benefits of fasting with the many proven benefits of a multifaceted lifestyle program.
ProLon was developed at the Longevity Institute at USC, under the directorship of Professor Valter Longo, after two decades of dedicated research. There they discovered that not eating for just a few days stimulates an amazing array of rejuvenating benefits for the body. Professor Longo and his team designed a unique, five-day nutrition program that allows you to eat three specially designed, tasty and satisfying meals per day that your body doesn’t “see,” responding as if you were fasting with only water.
Research on fasting shows it can support people with metabolic disorders (such as abnormal blood pressure and blood sugar regulation issues); autoimmune conditions, cognitive problems, and cancer. Although designed to optimize health, those needing to lose weight typically experience significant reductions in body fat, as ProLon preserves lean body mass.
