Not eating food at all? Restricting yourself from certain foods? Severely limiting your calories? All can be true, but did you know there’s actually a way to practice fasting with food?

So, what exactly is fasting with food, and how is that even possible? Fasting with food is a method where you can eat a limited number of calories with specific foods during the indicated fasting period.

Let’s face it, the thought of purposely going without food for an extended period is not high on anyone’s list. The hunger pangs associated with a total food-restrictive fast can be too daunting for some.

However, thanks to recent discoveries in the scientific research of fasting, more people are discovering that fasting with food is a real thing that can make the practice of fasting much easier than originally thought.

Benefits of Fast Bar
Nutritechnology & convenience

Based on the nutrition bar in ProLon® and the same nutrition technology as theFasting Mimicking Diet, Fast Bar is an energy rich nutrition bar, which was shown in a groundbreaking study to extend your fasting window while curbing your hunger*. It works by providing a specific formulation of micro- and macro-nutrients that does not trigger certain food sensing pathways which allows the body to experience a fasting state even though you’ve consumed a nutritious plant-based, non-GMO, and delicious bar. In simpler terms, you’re Fasting with Food™.

What makes Fast Bar so unique is that it can be used with intermittent fasting regimens or time-restricted eating-to nourish your body while you extend your fast*; or in any case, as a delicious snack. So the next time you hear someone question the concept of fasting with food, just hand them a Fast Bar.
