Five years ago with The Fast Diet, Dr Michael Mosley started a health revolution, telling the world about the incredible power of intermittent fasting. Since then, science has told us a whole lot more, and in The Fast 800 he brings you the ultimate guide to fasting, weight loss and long-term good health, and the magic number of calories: 800.
In The Fast 800, Michael consolidates all the new science – drawing on both the astonishing results of Professor Roy Taylor’s pioneering DiRECT study at Newcastle University (UK), which proves The Fast 800 methodology, and on Michael’s own pool of data and case studies. The result is an easy-to-follow new programme built around a more manageable 800-calorie Fasting Day – whether that’s 800 calories every day until you achieve your goals, or 800 calories twice a week.
Working with his personal rationale that he always proves his plans work, Michael puts on 10% of his body weight – about 8kg – then demonstrates how quickly he can shed it using The Fast 800. In his own ‘Supersize Me’ experiment, he documents what the extra weight does to his blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar levels, hunger hormones, gut bacteria – and how his overall health improves drastically.
Dr Michael Mosley is the author of The Clever Guts Diet, The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet, and the co-author, with Mimi Spencer, of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Fast Diet, which has been published in over thirty-two languages around the world. He is also co-author, with Peta Bee, of Fast Exercise and wrote the foreword for The Fast Diet Recipe Book by Mimi Spencer and Dr Sarah Schenker and the foreward for The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet Recipe Book. Michael Mosley trained to be a doctor at the Royal Free Hospital in London before joining the BBC, where he has been a science journalist, executive producer, and, more recently, a well-known television personality. He has won numerous television awards and was named medical journalist of the year by the British Medical Association.
