On a personal note…

…still undecided about whether the Fasting Mimicking Mindfulness Program (FMMP) is for you?

Listen as Anita and Louise give the details of their groundbreaking, science inspired protocol.

Here are some reflections from our last fasting participants:

This program is unique in that it provides information, exercises for both body and mind, and food guidance.  It is an approach that benefits the whole person, body mind and spirit, and shows that all of these are inter related.  The benefits from this combined approach can be life changing on many levels.

Simply put…If you are looking for a way to reset/reboot on all PEMS (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual)levels and set in motion life-long patterns of a nutritional way of eating – this program might be for you!

I always thought fasting was starving yourself or drinking powdered mixes each day.  This comprehensive program not only came with a packet explaining every detail – including delicious recipes and mindfulness exercises –  but it also had two outstanding coaches to guide us and answer our questions every step of the way.  I learned a great deal.

This was my second time doing the FMP and I had many new noticings: my pleasure in preparing the foods ahead of time (as I find the preparing to be part of the mindfulness); the ease in fasting this second time whereas I was terrified the first; and how the new ways of eating post-fast feel totally (well…almost) natural to me now. And yes, I did lose weight and do feel sharp…I also loved the meditations and writing aspect of the Program—they are to be celebrated as well. Signed up for Round 3 already!

Autophagy- so important right now.

 

Many of you have been hearing about the benefits of Fasting/Time Restricted Eating/Intermittent Fasting and maybe even, Autophagy. One of the biggest benefits is *Autophagy or cellular Spring cleaning.

*Autophagy:

The physiological benefits of fasting include anti-aging (and even anti-cancer) activity by turning on a process in the body called “autophagy,” which triggers the body to “clean up.” In this process, our cells remove damaged contents so they can be metabolized and excreted from the body.

Autophagy is a natural way to get pathogens and abnormal contents in cells out of the body. Autophagy provides anti-aging benefits and potentially even some anti-cancer benefits, because when cells act abnormally and replicate in an uncontrolled manner, that’s essentially how cancer develops. Autophagy removes these abnormal or damaged cells before they get out of hand.

So, fasting turns on autophagy and the fasting mimicking diet seeks to engage that process without having to stop eating completely. In short, you still eat food but calories are limited (800-1100 calories per day), and in theory you still get the benefits of fasting.

Lab trials on the Fasting Mimicking Diet:

The outcomes of the first small scale human trials of Fasting Mimicking Diets or FMD are reported by Dr. Valter Longo as including:

  • Reduction in blood glucose and large increase in ketones
  • 25%+ reduction in circulating Insulin Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1)
  • Reduction in C-Reactive Protein (CRP)
  • Positive changes in cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • Reduction in body weight
  • Improvement and Rejuvenation of the Immune System
  • Activation of *Autophagy

What happens next?

A great time for something new

‘life begins at the end of your comfort zone’

With many of us taking time to slow down, stay in, and help contain the COVID-19 virus, it is a perfect time to assess, evaluate, and think long term. How is your health on all levels (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual)? Is your immune system functioning optimally? Do you feel strong, vibrant, joyful, and at ease? Are you able to reduce stress on a daily basis?

If there is room for improvement, let us help.

We are thrilled to announce our Fasting Mimicking Mindfulness Program (FMMP).

This is a chance for you to be a part of groundbreaking science in the field of fasting mimicking. This program gives you a chance to reset your body, your mind, and your spirit.

This is not just about food! This is about understanding yourself on all levels. This is a chance to break the cycles of unhealthy living and thinking.

Empower yourself to set and achieve the goals that will move you towards the life you want to live.

Read about our FMMP and listen to our audio to find out more.

Program is set to begin April 13th.

“This program was a life changer for me. I realized how food and stress are controlling my life.”

“I feel freed from the tyranny of food and I learned the difference between what my mind needs and what my body needs.”
