Podcast Episode 137: The Longevity Diet™- Dr. Felicia Stoler

Jan 8, 2020

Disclosure: This episode is not sponsored, however, I received a complimentary trial of the 5-Day ProLon® Fasting Mimicking Diet and 3-Day Nutrition for Longevity meal kit.


The Fasting Mimicking Diet® and the Longevity Diet™

Consider limiting the number of hours in the day you engage your GI tract – in other words give it a rest. Start with 12 hours and work down to 10 or 8.”

The ProLon® Fasting Mimicking Diet® is the first and only meal program that has gone through clinical trials at the University of Southern California and been patented for its anti-aging effects. This 5-day meal program provides scientifically researched micro- and macro-nutrients in precise quantities and combinations that nourish you, but are not recognized as food by your body and therefore mimics a fasting state. 

ProLon® provides the body with healthy, plant-based ingredients that have been scientifically demonstrated to supply the body with optimal nourishment while not triggering key pro-aging pathways including the growth hormone and insulin and Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1) pathways activated by normal diets. These hormones signal to the body that it has consumed significant levels of carbohydrates and proteins and can activate genes that accelerate the growth hormone pathways, which also speed aging and block regeneration/rejuvenation.

Fasting Mimicking Diets have been shown to help: 

  • Decrease weight and body fat
  • Promote self-repair and rejuvenation
  • Maintain lean body mass
  • Decrease visceral fat
  • Maintain glucose, CRP, triglycerides, blood pressure, cholesterol and insulin resistance at healthy levels

Nutrition for Longevity is a meal kit based on the Longevity Diet and meal composition found in Centenarian Hot Spots, inspired by the research of Dr. Valter Longo, Director of the Longevity Institute at the University of Southern California.

        I loved this episode and I am very intrigued by the Longevity Diet. My body could definitely use a reset and I love that this is science based. I can’t wait to dive into more of the science behind it. I also need to give Regular Girl a try.

    I listened to the show and found it very informative. I have been studying the benefits of IF and am interested in learning more about the ProLon program. I spoke with my husband about testing it out and would love to win the giveaway. It may be something I could recommend to clients.
