In the last decade, gut health and inflammation have become popular health topics. The spike in interest stems from the growing number of Americans suffering from at least one chronic disease. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in the US 6 in 10 adults have a chronic disease and 4 in 10 have two or more.

According to numerous research, a strong connection among gut health, inflammation, and disease exists as the gut plays a crucial role in influencing inflammation, which affects the immune system that takes part in managing disease.

Science shows that modified fasting — fasts in which calories are restricted but required nutrition is supplied, like the Almased 14-day fast — can flip the body’s natural metabolic switch from burning sugar to burning fat, which also preserves muscle mass.  

In addition, safe fasting improves the balance of several important hormones. Healthy fasting keeps insulin levels in check and boosts levels of norepinephrine — which mobilizes more fat for the body to burn.   

Better yet, modified fasting lowers levels of the appetite hormone, ghrelin, and increases leptin, the hunger-blocking satiety hormone.


  • 21 Days to a Healthier Metabolism? 
  • The Fasting Phase — Phase 1 — Days 1 to 14 
  • The Reduction Phase — Phase 2 (Days 15 to 21) or Until Your Goal Is Reached 
  • The Stability Phase — Phase 3 — Several Weeks or Indefinitely As Needed 

Remember when you glanced in your mirror and it felt good? Maybe it was a month ago or 20 years ago.  

Regardless of when it was, you were feeling right about yourself and looking the way you wanted to look. 

Don’t you want to feel that way again? How about being happy again with the person who’s looking back at you in the mirror?  

It all starts with a healthy diet that’s made to super-charge your metabolism. To do this, you need a low-glycemic formula that’s brimming with superior ingredients, especially a formula that features high-quality protein, amino acids and more.

Our Almased USA Support Group on Facebook is a thriving community for Almased users looking to lose weight with our products for the first time and those who have shed the pounds successfully and want to inspire others. 

We care about the experience you have on Almased because it teaches us what works, so we monitor the Facebook Support Group and answer your questions. If you are already a member, you have likely seen someone from our team respond to queries about oil, whether you can drink diet soda in Phase 1 (sorry, no), and what is the difference between UK and USA Almased. While most questions asked only require a couple of sentences and a link, we have decided to use this blog to address something that comes up quite a lot: Almased’s label has changed, does that mean the formula is different?
