really liked it

The Fast 800 differs from the earlier book with a slight increase in the calorie intake for the fast days. He shares the research from studies that have been undertaken since the writing of the first book. For instance, 800 is the new magic calorie number as it's,
high enough to be manageable and sustainable but low enough to trigger a range of desirable metabolic changes.

He goes over information about carbs, insulin, the Mediterranean diet, rapid weight loss, food fads, junk food, sugar, exercise options and various food myths. Mosley also discusses the science behind the benefits of Time Restricted Eating (TRE) and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Practical, how-to information is suggested for how to get started and the last part of the book is dedicated to recipes with their calorie counts.
