“A limited 5-day fast each month, followed by eating sensibly the rest of the month, led to, among other benefits, reduced inflammation markers and sustained weight loss.”

West Nyack, New York, March 12, 2016, Weight loss diets are marketed everywhere these days, and self-proclaimed diet gurus make all sorts of outlandish claims. When a clinical study is published by a reputable source, it garners a lot of attention. Such is the case of a study published by The USC Longevity Lab. New research led by USC’s Valter Longo shows that periodically adopting a diet that mimics the effects of fasting may yield a wide range of health benefits. In a new study, Longo and his colleagues showed that cycles of a five-day low-calorie diet that mimics fasting (FMD) cut visceral belly fat and elevated the number of progenitor and stem cells in several organs of old mice — including the brain, where it boosted neural regeneration and improved learning and memory. Longo was recently quoted touting the superiority of a five consecutive day limited fast over the currently popular 5:2 diet.

Other such studies give additional credence to this successful weight loss concept. Weight Loss Buddy – which boasts the number one weight support website on the net with 150,000+ members has introduced a “5-Day Fast Diet” product line based on the USC research that betters the 5:2 approach. During a recent interview, Weight Loss Buddy CEO, Joey Dweck, made these comments: “By tricking your metabolism with short bursts of fasting, you can reset the ‘default browser’ of your body. Then when you go back to eating a normal caloric intake your body will respond at peak efficiency for overall better health and quicker and long lasting weight loss.”

Weight Loss Buddy’s “5-Day Fast Diet” is the first Weight Loss product to use the science of Intermittent Fasting. The 5-Day “FAST” Diet is a convenient, easy to follow, calorie restricted diet of tasty and nutritious snacks. The foods selected were done to meet the macro nutrient (protein, fat, carbohydrate) levels used in the study, as well as include certain foods used in the study. Each day’s foods are individually bagged and labeled. Users also drink a lot of fluid in the way of teas, soups and the “Green” drinks included. According to a company spokesperson, “The 5-Day FAST Diet is quick, convenient and brings you all the benefits of less caloric intake for a short period of time.”

Customer Testimonials have been phenomenal. Take a look at what Mona, a Verified Client, had to say: “I love how each day’s worth of food is clearly marked and can easily be taken on the go. I didn’t have to prepare or even think about what I was going to eat for 5 whole days!”
