Event description


Join us for Fasting Week

We want to talk to you about fasting.

For many, the prospect of foregoing food for any prolonged period of time seems scary, even dangerous. But over the last 20 years countless studies and new discoveries have validated the incredible health benefits associated with caloric restriction as well as various fasting protocols. These benefits include:

  • Weight loss
  • Visceral fat reduction
  • Cellular clean-up (an incredible process called autophagy)
  • Helping maintain a healthy metabolism

We’ve concluded that fasting done safely and wisely can play a crucial role in promoting overall health and longevity. As such, we are happy to incorporate fasting opportunities into our practice.

Maximizing benefits with a “prolonged fast”

One of the most beneficial forms of fasting is what’s known as a “prolonged fast.” This is 2 or more days of little or no caloric intake. But compliance for a prolonged water-only fast can be difficult, daunting even. Thankfully we recently discovered a new program to help: ProLon.

ProLon is a 5-day low calorie, plant-based meal program that provides the same benefits of a water-only fast, but with food. It is the first “fasting mimicking diet” ever created, and it really works!

Safer than water-only fasting, ProLon is convenient, simple, and delicious. With this plan, the body is “tricked” into fasting mode while eating tasty foods like fresh olives, hearty soups, and sweet nut bars.

Join our upcoming Fasting Week

To spread the word about the incredible health benefits of fasting, we’re utilizing ProLon for our own “Fasting Week”. We have three events scheduled with a kick-off lecture on a Monday followed by the 5-day fasting mimicking diet.

  • April 15, 2019 from 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
  • May 20, 2019 from 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
  • June 17, 2019 from 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

The Monday lecture is a time to learn the science about fasting and meet with other interested fasters. For those interested in the FMD Experience, we will place orders for the low-calorie, delicious meals kits, which take 5-7 days for delivery. We are fortunate to be able to offer these meals kits at a special dicounted price of $200. I recommend completeing all three cycles as this is what the clinical science is based but you may chose to complete only 1 or 2 events.

This is a great opportunity to jump-start your wellness plan and give your body a much-needed tune-up.

DEADLINE TO CONFIRM: Seating is limited so register soon.

We’re excited for you to take this journey with us!

How many tickets should I buy? The clinical trial was based upon 3 monthly 5-day cylces (recommended) but you can choose to only do 1 or 2 cyces.

How do I get my FMD meals? These will be available at the Monday evening introductory lecture. If you are unable to attend, please make arrangements with Dave Johnson, MD to discuss the program.

Do I need to start my fast on the following Tuesday? No, but supporting emails will be based upon a 5-day schedule that starts on Tuesday following the introductory lecture.
