What to Expect on a 5-Day Prolonged Fast.
Our LifeOmic employees lost an average of 5.5 pounds over the course of a 5-day fast, or an average of a little over 3% of their body weight. The percentage of weight loss range was from 1.5% to nearly 7% body weight loss over the course of five days.
Fasting Tip : Doing light to moderate resistance activity during your prolonged fast can help to preserve muscle mass while helping your body to burn fats for fuel. Exercise will also further promote ketone production and autophagy, and may help you feel energized through the tougher periods of your fasting. Consider going for walks, rock climbing, swimming, or doing some strengthening or slow flow yoga.

“The [Prolon] muesli bar was quite delicious. It tasted like a normal healthy muesli bar, just a bit more oily [coconut oils!]. It had been a long time since I was so mindful about eating something. I spent about 3 minutes enjoying that single 43-gram [200 calorie] bar.” – Zhenya, LifeOmic.
