A-LIFE | FASTING-MIMICKING PROGRAM
5-day program with meals and workouts
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 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 on Saturday evening for a start on Sunday or on Monday morning for a start on Monday. The program includes all your meals and workouts for day 1 to day 5. Day 6 should be a healthy day where you slowly increase the calorie intake with plant-based and whole food meals.
All the participants will join a group chat where further information will be shared on a daily basis.
