5 day fasting-mimicking meal program

A-LIFE is a 5-day program inspired by the fasting-mimicking diet created by Dr. Valter Longo who 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.

EATbyalex created this new 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 vitamin and mineral supplements for 5 days. All the meals will be delivered once for the whole week.

All the participants will join a group chat where further information will be shared on a daily basis. There will also be a LIVE Q&A session on Zoom with Alex that will take on Tuesday evening – details will be shared closer to the time.

And last but not least, you will have access to workout videos from our partners that you can access anytime during your A-LIFE week:

  • 5 breakfasts | granola bars
