“Why fasting and ketones bolsters brain power”

Mark Mattson at TEDx Johns Hopkins University

Here at The New You Plan we are BIG FANS of the benefits of fasting and ketones; not just for weight loss, but for general health and well being.

We love this Ted Talk that explains more about the benefits of ketones, especially the effect on the human brain, and how this can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s.

As Mark Mattson says: “Try it out! The days you fast you will find you feel better and are more productive.”

Find out what he had to say in his Ted Talk video.

Mark Mattson is the current Chief of the Laboratory of Neurosciences at the National Institute on Aging. He is also a professor of Neuroscience at The Johns Hopkins University. Mattson is one of the foremost researchers in the area of cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

If you want to experience the power of fasting, The New You Plan’s FAST FOCUS MEAL PLAN or FRESH FOCUS MEAL PLAN, allows you to get the benefits of fasting while giving your body 100% of your recommended daily amounts of vitamins and minerals.


FAST FOCUS is called TOTAL FOOD REPLACEMENT – it is when you replace ALL your normal food for New You meal packs for a period of up to 12 weeks.

The plan allows you to eat 4 small meals a day with snacks 2-3 times a week.

Example menu plan includes:

  • BREAKFAST EXAMPLES: Shake, Porridge, Pancakes, Omelettes, Muesli Bars.
  • LUNCH & DINNER EXAMPLES: Soup, Shake, Chocolate Bar, Pasta Meals, Cottage Pie, Curry Meals
  • SNACKS: Protein crisps, Wafers, Gummy Sweets


Fresh Focus is intermittent fasting – New You 5:2

This involves following FAST FOCUS at least 2 days a week, and the remaining days following a FRESH HEALTHY MEAL PLAN of your own.

There is evidence that fasting is good for the human body

✔️ Reduces inflammation

✔️ It will reduce stress on organs

✔️ Shifts your energy metabolism to burn fat

Fasting created ketone bodies that are very good for your brain
