Weight Loss: Michael Mosley explains how limited-time eating can make dieting “easier”

Dr. Michael Mosley spoke with wellness expert Liz Earle about intermittent fasting and its many health benefits. The creator of the Fast 800 explained the program and how to carefully select the times you eat can make weight loss “easier”.

Dr Michael explained to Liz on a Facebook live stream: “I came across research on rapid weight loss – this became the Fast 800.

“You start with 800-900 calories, do it for a few weeks, up to 12 weeks, then move on to intermittent fasting, the transition to lifestyle.

“You can also incorporate limited-time eating, which makes it easier.”

Time-limited consumption is when meals are eaten within a certain amount of time each day, for example by consuming only calories between 8:00 and 16:00.

Regarding the impact that limited food consumption has on weight loss, the expert previously revealed: “There is growing evidence to show that to get the most benefit from the diet, attention must be paid to meal times. .

“In one of the first human trials of time-limited feeding, conducted with the help of the University of Surrey, two groups of healthy volunteers ate the same food.

“The group with a time-limited meal plan had breakfast 90 minutes later than usual and dined 90 minutes earlier each day.

“They lost more body fat and saw greater drops in blood sugar and cholesterol levels than the control group.”

Dr. Michael also talked about the benefits of a quick weight loss diet with Liz.

He said: “Professor Roy Taylor started a large study: 300 patients, who were randomly assigned the Fast 800 approach or standard weight loss. He has been following them for a couple of years.

“What he found was that people who lost weight quickly, lost a lot more weight and kept it at bay.

“What is striking is that the group that started with rapid weight loss is much healthier than the group that is going slowly and steadily.

“The results have been so impressive: the UK government is rolling it out to 5,000 patients.

“This was the basis of the Fast 800 online program,” he added.

Liz asked, “How long has the fast 800 been running and what can people generally expect to lose?”

Dr Michael replied: “We started five years ago and developed it from there.

“40,000 people have done the program so far – and we recently had it checked by the NHS branch and looked at all of our data and said, ‘Average weight loss is around 8-9 kilograms in 12 weeks. In a year, that’s about 10 kilograms. ‘

“So people keep losing weight, they don’t slip, some do, but people keep losing weight because what Fast 800 does is that it gives you all the recipes, but it gives you ongoing support.”

He added: “An extremely important part of this [weight loss] is to have support at every stage of the process; we have doctors, physiotherapists, we have all kinds of professionals who are there to support you when you have questions and the great thing about being based in the UK and Australia, someone is available 24 hours a day.

“There is a large, vibrant online community that is very eager to share and also generous with their support.”

Dr. Michael also talked about the “exercise regimen” available on the Fast 800.

“It’s tailored for you,” he said.

After an initial evaluation, those who participate in the Fast 800 program are assigned an exercise level: beginner, intermediate or advanced.

They are then guided through weekly exercise plans which consist of HIIT, resistance training, and stretching sessions.

The Fast 800 recommends completing two HIIT sessions per week.

HIIT “is particularly effective in improving heart and lung function,” explained Dr. Michael.

“You also need to increase muscle strength, for which we provide resistance training sessions.

“We also recommend that our members complete resistance training sessions three times a week, preferably on days when no HIIT is performed.”
