  • Waiting to start 3rd round

    I've used Prolon twice and achieved the magic 5lb weight loss both times. The first time the discipline stayed with me and the weight didn't come back; the second time I wasn't so good and I got back where I'd started. I'm going to try it again and hope to be more disciplined afterwards.

      I only drink coffee 2-3 times a week, yet I nearly always get a headache on day two. I love your idea of a two-day Prolon diet. I'm on my second round of Prolon.

But I confess that the week leading up to my second round I had lots of cheat meals.
