I'm wrapping up day 5 of my experiment - the ProLon fasting mimicking diet! It feels great to know I've made it through the week successfully, and pretty easily. The first two days were a little rough. Surprisingly, I've found that in the last two days I didn't need or want all of the food that was provided. I haven't had the L drink in two days. I've been having a soup for breakfast, one of the afternoon snacks for lunch, and another soup when I get home at night.
I went to the grocery store tonight in preparation for tomorrow, "transition day." I have reservations about going back to normal, considering how great I feel right now. I hardly feel like I'm missing anything and I really love feeling lighter and more energized. This week, I've been getting up at 4:30am every day and I've had pretty long, challenging days, yet I have had more energy in the last two days than I've had in a long time. So, I purchased pineapples, apples, blueberries, mixed salads, veggie noodles, and a few other raw foods to eat in smaller portions with some intermittent fasting in between. I am happy to be almost done, but I'm already excited for my next trial of ProLon. :)
