Publisher's Summary

Lose up to 20 pounds in four weeks!

Discover the next major “health revolution” (The New York Times) with this cutting-edge new program from number one New York Times best-selling author of The FastDiet that will help you lose weight, beat disease, and live longer with intermittent fasting — from the number one New York Times best-selling author of The FastDiet.

Millions of people worldwide have lost weight and reversed disease using Dr. Mosley’s The FastDiet, which revealed the incredible power of intermittent fasting. Clinical studies show that fasting not only helps you lose weight fast, but also improves blood sugar levels and heart health, boosts brain health and function, and is even proven to reduce the risk of cancer recurrence.  

Drawing on the latest research and his personal experience gaining and then losing 14 pounds, “the world’s top gut health guru” (Dr. Barry Marshall, winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine) returns with an even more effective - yet easier to follow - diet plan designed to reap maximum fasting benefits. The Fast800 Diet pinpoints the ideal fasting calorie count for health and weight loss: 800. Built around a more manageable 800-calorie fasting day - whether that’s 800 calories every day until you achieve your goals, or 800 calories twice a week - Dr. Mosley’s powerful three-phase program is designed to supercharge weight loss and fast-track a healthier life: 

  • Phase 1: A powerful jumpstart designed to accelerate weight loss.
  • Phase 2: Fast twice a week to sheds pounds without slowing your metabolism.
  • Phase 3: Discover how to keep the weight off - without calorie counting. 

Complete with over 55 delicious recipes, four weeks of meal plans, and inspiring success stories, The Fast800 Diet is a simple and life-changing program that gets you real world results.

It's a great method and it works!

I'm a Physician myself and I tried Micheal Mosley's 5:2 diet 7 years ago. It worked for me, but I gave up after a few weeks. I didn't like being hungry twice a week. I've given it another go. This time I went 31 days on 800 cals/day. I quickly adapted - now, hunger doesn't bother me so much. It's a great method and it works!

Good book and info, not the best narration

The information and plan presented in the book are good, but the heavy British accent of the author effects the enjoyment of the reading and could cause some word comprehension issues for some people.

Works! 235lbs to 187lbs in just over 2.5 months!

IMPORTANT TO NOTE:

All the weight I have lost has been purely through diet. I made it a point to NOT exercise short of the moderate activity my job entails 1 to 2 days a week. I did this to see if the process TRULY works.

I have followed these instructions and started on March 30th 2022.

My starting weight was 235 lb and at the time of this review I currently weigh 187 lb and my goal is 180lbs.

-I restricted my calories to 950 instead of the 800
-I'm intermittent fasting 18–6
-Fasting a full 24hrs once every other week (or as needed)

Additional tools I've used in tandem with the book:

-Free online Resting Metabolic Rate Calculator (to figure how many calories I burn everyday with no exertion and my caloric deficit is everyday)

-Glucose/Ketone meter: By Keto Mojo ($45)

-MyFitnesspal App for food tracking (FREE)




Best pieces of advice I recommend to someone considering embarking on the journey..

Track your weight using a scale (and log it via MyFitnesspal)

BUY the Blood/Glucose Meter because it is PROOF that your diet is working and it will help you weed out the foods that maybe "Keto Friendly" but is detrimental to YOU specifically.

LOG EVERYTHING at least for the first 4-6 weeks. It's a real lesson in what foods are heavy in calories (some WILL surprise you)

-YES I have fallen pray to the munchies and got "Snacky" a few times but you'll quickly learn that it's easy with a good fast to get right back on track within a day or 2.

Good luck! it's possible even fun once you get some traction with this plan!

Quick and fast

A quick listen. I didn't think the narration was bad at all, the accent was easy to understand.

I've been doing a variation of the fast 800 for 3 weeks and have lost 10lbs so far. I want to read this book for additional motivation and get the exact schedule. Hoping to lose 20+ more!

You'll be inspired to try it! --It Works!

Very convincing and you will believe you can do it after listening to Michael speak so passionately through the eyes of science and his own experiences. I must admit I have listened to all of Dr. Mosley's books and have done intermittent fasting for years. I still listened to this one as a reminder of why I do the fasting and because 2020 happened to my waistline. Jumped right back into the 5:2 approach with new vigor!
