A temporary diet, which reproduces the beneficial effects of ‘1000 calories a day’ causes favorable plasmic transformations to your health and slows down the aging process.
The diet imitates the results that can be normally seen after a few days without eating.
This clinical study was published on Wednesday in the United States.
In addition, the scheme delays the onset of diseases associated with becoming older.
Before being applied on over a hundred participants, the diet entitled “ProLonn” has been tested on mice.
This diet is low in calories, sugar and proteins, but rich in healthy fats.
It consists of vegetable soups, energy bars, tea and vitamin supplements, dosed according to your body weight.
In mice, this nutritional formula reduced the frequency of cancer and inflaming diseases and offered the prospects of a longer, healthier life.
The results on humans demonstrated similar effects.
In addition, if people will follow the ProLonn diet, they’ll reduce the risk factors associated with aging, such as diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease, researchers noted.
According to them, the beneficial effects appear to be the result of an increase in the number of stem cells. The diet allows the regeneration process.
All the participants that were subjected to this diet recorded a weight loss of 2.5 kg on average and a reduction in waist size of 4 cm.
In addition, the amount of fat was reduced, as well as the blood pressure and levels of “bad” cholesterol.
No serious side effects were observed, said the researchers.
They noted that going a few days without eating at all, supported solely by water, can also have beneficial effects on your health.
But, it presents several risks, including hypoglycemia, hypotension and gallstones.
