The holiday season filled with a variety of indulgent foods and general overabundance can offer many pitfalls when it comes to managing your waistline and maintaining overall health. Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based Life Extension® has designed and clinically studied a program to help manage your weight during the holidays and beyond.
The 2:5™ by Life Extension Nutrition Program evaluated intermittent fasting in with a randomized, controlled clinical study of overweight but otherwise healthy adults. After 52 days of using The 2:5 by Life Extension Nutrition program, participants experienced a significant weight loss and body mass index reduction compared to baseline. Participants also maintained already healthy cholesterol, triglyceride and insulin levels.
“These results suggest that The 2:5 by Life Extension Nutrition Program may be an effective strategy not only for management and prevention of weight gain during the holiday season, but also for weight management and promoting already healthy lipid and insulin levels,” said Michael A. Smith, MD, director of education and spokesperson for Life Extension.
Following The 2:5 by Life Extension Nutrition Program is simple.
Two consecutive days per week there’s a reduction of caloric intake using specially designed Life Extension shakes and snack bars for an average of only 750 calories per day.
The rest of the week is a continuation of a normal diet with the opportunity to splurge a little, as well as daily consumption of a select set of Life Extension dietary supplements.
Purchase of The 2:5 by Life Extension Nutrition Program includes two tubs of chocolate or vanilla Wellness Shakes, three boxes of chocolate brownie and cookie dough flavor Wellness Bars, plus a 60-day supply of the following weight management supplements: AMPK Metabolic Activator, Optimized Saffron with Satiereal®*, Glycemic Guard™, Advanced Appetite Suppress.
The program includes a daily tracker to help support your health and wellness journey during the life of the program, as well as recommendations for making healthy food choices, exercise and importance of getting a good night’s sleep.
According to Dr. Smith, from October through January, the average person gains one to two pounds.
“One to two-pounds might not seem like a lot of weight. But this weight as a rule is not lost during the ensuing months and a one to two-pound weight gain annually over a period of 10 years can add an excess of 10-20 pounds,” adds Dr. Smith.
Life Extension supplements should be taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise program. Individual results are not guaranteed, and results may vary.
