This week starts the beginning of Lent which means I will try to remember to include a fish or vegetarian meal on Fridays. My mom used to ask us kids to give up one thing during Lent and we would always to try to be sneaky and pick things we didn’t care about, like milk or bananas. She was onto us. Occasionally she asked us to give up fighting with each other. Never!
Speaking of giving up things, I am excited (yes, excited) to be doing the Prolon Fasting Mimicking Diet again this week. I did it three times last year and I’d like to continue to do it three times a year going forward. I believe the science that shows that fasting supports metabolic balance, cellular rejuvenation, weight loss (disclaimer: in a clinical study, ProLon is shown over three cycles to help individuals lose an average of 5.7 ibs and 1.6 inches off their waist circumference), and healthy aging. If you’d like to see what it’s all about, click here and follow my Instagram stories this week. If you’d like to try the program, 1 kit/box is all you need for the 5-day program.
