A-Life | 5-Day Fasting-Mimicking Diet

A-Life is a 5-day program inspired by the fasting-mimicking diet created by Dr. Valter Longo. He has dedicated years of research to achieving longevity, slow ageing, reducing disease and weight management through plant-based and whole food nutrition. You can read more about it in his book “The Longevity Diet” which we highly recommend.

Eat by Alex created this program using the concept of fasting-mimicking which puts your body into a fasting mode while still providing the right nutrients and supplements to your body. The restricted calorie diet makes your body think you are fasting and therefore reset and cleanse.

The package includes all your meals as well as supplements for 5 days. All the meals will be delivered once for the whole week. You can order it here. 

A-Life Guided Exerience is our orginial program. It takes place in group at the same dates and is guided by our team. This program includes live workouts from our partners. 

A-Life On-Demand is not guided but you can join at any time of the year when it is most convenient for you. You will have access to on-demand workouts but not to the live workouts which are only available during the guided version.

For both verison, soups & shots will be delivered frozen. 

One week every 6 to 12 weeks if you are healthy with a normal weight and if you are regularly exercising. You also can do it more regularly but you should consult a nutritionist or doctor.
