Jun 09, 2024

After indulging over Christmas, many of us are now searching for effective diets and healthy eating plans to get back in shape.


TV presenter and weight loss guru, Dr Michael Mosley, reveals his secret to losing a stone in just 21 days.

Dr Michael Mosley

Dr Michael Mosley developed the Fast 800 Keto diet with his wife, Dr Claire Mosley. It involves reducing carbs, increasing protein and healthy fats, and keeping calories low.

The Fast 800 Keto Diet

The Fast 800 Keto diet recommends keeping carbs under 50g per day, ensuring protein remains above 50g, and maintaining a daily calorie intake of 800 to 1,000.

How Does It Work?

The Keto diet helps with rapid weight loss, suppresses hunger hormone (ghrelin), and preserves muscle mass.

Benefits of the Keto Diet

The Fast 800 Keto diet is not recommended as a long-term lifestyle plan. It should only be followed for a maximum of 12 weeks or until achieving a normal BMI.

Not a Long-Term Plan

After the Fast 800 Keto diet, Dr Mosley recommends transitioning to his 5:2 or Way of Life diets for sustainable weight management.

Transitioning to Other Diets

Research has shown that the keto diet can be effective for individuals with type 2 diabetes in reducing central obesity and managing blood sugar levels.
