Summary

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 audiobook 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 an accompanying PDF featuring 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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

utter Genius

Once again Michael tells it like it is.

A pure joy to listen to, no "filler" every sentence makes a real point.

I followed it to the letter and in 5 weeks lost 10 kg and feel amazing.

Not quite right

Being experienced in fasting (all types of mentioned in the book) and gaining amazing results I have to admit that many things make sense, but also many of them are just unhealthy and not that sustainable. Especially for weightloss.
Another disturbing thing was that the author kept on using absolute numbers instead of %. Losing 4 or 6 kilos means nothing if we don't know how much that is compared to the whole weight of the person.
Rapid weightloss might be good for someone with hight body fat rating, but would be terribly unhealthy for someone with low body fat.
You do have to be ready that your immune system will get worse if you do it for weeks in a manner of the severe calorie deficit encouraged by author.

It works

I listened to this over the course of four days. I decided to implement the techniques described on the second day of listening. By the 4th day I'd lost 6lbs.
The book is well researched, well written and well read. Plus it actually works.

Motivational and easy to follow

As well as giving me hope that I will be slim again in a matter of months, Michael Mosley has stopped me from feeling guilty for past dietary failures. I find the research evidence he provides compelling and surprisingly easy to follow. There is also a lot of online support offered. Thank you Michael.

good points

really well researched. he conveys his findings in a down to earth way. I've been understanding my hunger pangs and sugar cravings as addictions now. to stop the constant hunger take away the addictive sugars, it works.

Fab advice. No fads

I have just started the keto diet and found information within this book very helpful. Though as its the audio version, I haven't worked out how to see the recipes mentioned a lot throughout...
