    The Fast 800 (Paperback)

    Michael Mosley

    (1)
    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. And in this book, he uses a new approach of 'Time Restricted Eating' to create an easy-to-follow programme.

    Studies have shown that 800 calories is the magic number when it comes to successful dieting - it's high enough to be manageable but low enough to speed weight loss and trigger a range of metabolic changes. This new programme is also 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.
