Every year a new fad diet takes over the world by storm. Last year, we were introduced to the concept of intermittent fasting and since then the diet has grown so popular that it seems like one that's here to stay for good. Dr Michael Mosley who is an author and dietician published a book on intermittent fasting six years ago which pretty much took the fitness world by storm. And now, he has come up with yet another book that is said to help make the diet even easier. Titled 'Fast 800' the book outlines how to consume a lower-carb Mediterranean diet every day. It also states that a person needs to consume 800 calories or less on two days of a week.
The Dr stated that eating 800 calories is definitely not starving yourself. "It's actually quite decent," he said. "You could have a couple of poached eggs with a bit of smoked salmon for breakfast, a light lunch of some sort of vegetable-based soup, a handful of nuts and then in the evening you have a big pile of vegetables with a little fish or meat." He also added that practitioners lost as much as 11 kgs and 10 inches from their waist in just eight weeks.
The Dr also said that intermittent fasting can pretty much work wonders for people with diabetes which is why it has become a must-try diet for everyone. "This is the best method we have to lose weight safely, sustainably and to keep it off," he said. Well, are you willing to give the diet a chance? Stay tuned for more updates.
