The Fast Mimicking Diet (FMD) is a low protein vegetable based diet that's high in natural plant based fats. FMD is a calorie restricted diet that mimics the effects of fasting on the body whilst providing it with an enhancing nutrient profile.The food plan relies on the research of Professor Valter Longo*, and his team at the University of Southern California and outlined in his best selling book The Longevity Diet.
The diet is designed to force the body to shed the excess cells (including immune and mast cells) and provide nourishment for their renewal. FMD helps to reverse the unwanted effects of a Western diet that is high in animal based proteins that actually accelerate the ageing process. Fast mimicking has been shown to result in the reduction of inflammation and the hormones associated with ageing.
The design of the diet dictates that day 1 (the easing day) has higher amounts of protein, fats, carbohydrates and calories (1090 calories) than days 2-5 (725 calories). Many people experience a strange sensation as the brain starts consuming fat instead of glucose for fuel. Most people who undertake fast mimicking wind up feeling completely rejuvenated and most can't believe that a simple diet can make you feel that way.
It's like finding a loophole in life!
