In this video, Dr. Berg talks about Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD). FMD, developed by Valter Longo, is a diet where you basically consume 800 calories for five days and then go back to regular eating for the rest of the month. This will be done for 3 months. Problems with Fasting Mimicking Diet program will also be tackled.

Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD) Macros:
• 9% Protein
• 44% Fat
• 47% Carbs

Diet Foods:
• Vegetables Soup
• Energy Drink
• Energy Bar
• Chip Snack
• Tea
• Supplement

Problem with Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD):
1. Overpriced
2. Contains sugar – low quality foods that stimulate insulin
3. Low-calorie diet – It is not fasting but it is a fasting mimicking program.
4. Very painful – People who are doing this are suffering because they are not going into a gradual adaptation process.
5. This does not teach healthy lifestyle.

I had another question from someone who wanted to know what do I think about the fasting mimicking diet. This was a diet that was developed by a guy by the name of Valter Longo and he is the patent of this program. And basically you consume 800 calories for 5 days of a certain diet and then you go back to your regular eating the rest of the month and you do this each month for three months. So you are gonna lose weight and you are gonna have a massive changes. The macros are 9% protein, 44% fat and 47% carbs. That’s way too high. Then we have this meal pack, you have this box of this powdered things and you are gonna mix it with water. You have vegetable soup, energy drink, energy bar, chip snacks, tea and supplements, it is $249. I was able to find some of the ingredients and there’s a couple of things that I really don’t like in minestrone and quinoa soup first of all has 5 grams of sugar, and it contains rice flour and potato flakes, it’s very high glycemic. And then the L-Bar Coco Crisp Bar has 3 grams of sugar, has inulin which produces a lot of grass, brown rice sugar, brown rice syrup, rice dextrin and grape juice. Now, the supplement is all synthetics. It doesn’t look like it has natural anything in that supplement. Here’s what I have a problem with, number 1 its way overpriced. If you were just to replace this with just healthy ingredients it would be a lot better and a lot cheaper. Number 2, it contains sugar and low quality foods that stimulates insulin. Why do we even want to add it in there? I have no idea. Number 3, it’s a low calorie diet. It is not fasting, it is a fasting mimicking program but it is really not fasting and it is really a low calorie diet and it is very painful to do. The people that are doing this are really suffering to it and the reason is they don’t go into a nice and gradual adaptation process. They just cram you right in there and you really never adapt and because you are eating calories, you are gonna lose weight and you are gonna probably have some other benefits too but you are not gonna feel real good. A much better way to do this is to gradually get into keto and combine intermittent fasting and slowly get your body to adapt to fat.
