Description:

Six years ago, Dr Michael Mosley started a health revolution with the 5:2 Fast Diet, telling the world about the incredible power of intermittent fasting. In this book he brings together all the latest science – including  a new approach: Time Restricted Eating – to create an easy-to-follow programme.

 

Recent studies have shown that 800 calories is the magic number when it comes to successful dieting – it’s an amount high enough to be manageable but low enough to speed weight loss and trigger a range of desirable metabolic changes.

 

The secret of this new programme is that it is highly flexible – depending on your goals, you can choose how intensively you want to do it.

 

Along with delicious, low-carb, Mediterranean-style recipes and menu plans by Dr Clare Bailey, The Fast 800 offers an effective way to help you lose weight, improve mood and reduce blood pressure, inflammation and blood sugars. Take your future health into your own hands.

 

My View:

Dr Michael Mosley delivers another powerful and informative, motivating read that introduces us to recent science based theories on managing your health that he has personally explored. I like his personable approach, his willingness to put his body on the line in the name of medical research is commendable.

 

As always, the writing here is accessible, the data/evidence presented in clear and concise ways that make choosing good health a realistic outcome. TRE (Time Restricted Eating) IF (Intermittent Fasting) are something that we are going to hear a lot more about in mainstream medicine and Dr Mosley succinctly explains how using these methods, in a responsible way, we can trigger a range of metabolic changes that will improve our health.

 

Fascinating reading.
