5-Day Fasting Mimicking Diet Results in Reprogrammed Pancreas; Improvements in Diabetes
According to the BBC, the “fasting mimicking diet” (FMD) used by the researchers mimics periods of feast and famine, since for 25 days of the month there are no real dietary restrictions.

We are extremely excited about this breakthrough in research, which was just published in the scientific journal Cell on February 23, 2017. We’re especially thrilled because the study’s fasting mimicking diet is closely comparable to the Smart Pressed Juice cleanse program and menu.
