Publisher's Summary

Based on the latest groundbreaking science.

The ultimate guide - how to combine rapid weight loss and intermittent fasting for long-term good health.

An exciting new programme built around a more manageable 800-calorie fast day.

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.

Depending on your goals, you can choose how intensively you want to do the programme: how many 800-calorie days to include each week, and how to adjust these as you progress.

Along with delicious, low-carb recipes and menu plans by Dr. Clare Bailey, The Fast 800 offers a flexible way to help you lose weight, improve mood and reduce blood pressure, inflammation and blood sugars.

Take your future health into your own hands.

Includes recipes, meal plans and photographic section.  

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

I've lost 9kg in 6 weeks. It works!

The market is flooded with diet books, healthy living gurus and the like, so it can be difficult to weed through what is worth your time. We’re all individual with unique needs, lifestyles and metabolisms too, each adding to the difficulty of finding the right weight loss path.
The Fast 800 is now my quintessential bible of weight loss. Having dropped 9kg in 6 weeks, the principles and ideas discussed in the book are simple, easy to follow and have provided the motivation that I needed to begin my own weight loss journey.
Dr Michael Mosley is articulate and engaging as he breaks down many of the common diets, discusses the fallacies that have entered into our belief system, and uses science to demystify calories, metabolism, habits and fasting.
The Fast 800 plan promotes a very low-calorie diet (VLCD) which focusses on the nutritional value of what we consume. He provides examples of why this is more beneficial and sustainable than simple calorie counting, and how it is a healthier way for the body to lose weight.
His plan is in three phases – rapid weight loss, an updated version of his original 5:2 fasting diet and finally, a maintenance phase to keep the weight off.
Ever practical, Dr Mosley promotes flexibility and the consumption of healthy food but does not exclude the use of meal replacement shakes for those who are time-poor or struggle with cravings or other food issues. He provides ample recipes by Dr Clare Bailey and some meal plans to keep within the 800-calorie range. The audiobook of The Fast 800 comes with an accompanying PDF of the recipes, ensuring readers have access to the same information at their fingertips.
Much of what Dr Mosley speaks about can be heard in other books of a similar ilk – forming habits, giving in to cravings, the need to exercise and watch what we eat, and so on. It’s his staged approach and his well-thought out guidance that makes things clear and easy to follow. For me, his plan has resulted in rapid weight loss with no hunger, few cravings, and a lot of energy despite the low-calorie intake.
As with all diets and exercise programs, consult your doctor first, but after my own ongoing success, this is a definite meal plan worth considering.

Great book

This is a great book and if you're like me and use the Audible app then you probably cant find the recipe pdf. But if you go to the full site then your library will have a link to the pdf with all the recipes. Thank you, I'll enjoy getting my body back to health!

Comprehensive and insightful

I have read Dr Michael Mosley's previous books and enjoyed them. I found 500 calories a little difficult to stick to, but I'm excited to try this new approach and confident that I will achieve the results I am after. I feel that Dr Michael Mosley is the perfect narrator for his book. I had lots of 'lightbulb' moments!

I think it's a good idea to eat 800calories

That sums up the whole book. Any YouTube clip or article about the Fast 800 will tell you everything you need to know. This book is only useful if you are interested in anecdotal evidence and summaries of scientific studies that support the authors idea. And there are recipes in the back.

Convinced. Makes a lot of sense

Well studied and researched diet plan
Looking forward to implementing over the coming days and weeks. I’m not usually a diet person but this is more about overall well-being and healthy eating.
