Dr. Michael Mosley often shares his weight loss tips with thin people online as well as on TV. He is the creator of The rapid 800 – a diet that helps people lose weight quickly.

“And we know the fats and sugar that you eat later in the night, they stay in your system a lot, a lot longer because your body is just shut down overnight.

“Your digestive process is going to stop and he really won’t appreciate that late night snack.” “

Dr Mosley added that while drinking alcohol and caffeine in moderation is okay as part of a balanced diet, it is best to avoid these foods before going to bed.

He explained, “I think the key is to try and restrict alcohol and caffeine late at night, as both are likely to keep you awake.

“You can mainly get protein from meat or fish, and you can get protein from legumes as well, but you have to eat a little more, which is why going on the Fast 800 with a vegetarian diet is more difficult.

“We have meal replacement shakes that are very high in protein, and we also aim to produce protein boosters, to help people who might otherwise suffer from it.

“The reason for protein is that you need it for your muscles.

“You need it for all kinds of essential metabolic processes.

“And also because when you consume it, it is digested more slowly by your body, so you don’t get the same kind of peaks.”

The Fast 800 is a diet that combines a time-limited diet, intermittent fasting and a diet of Mediterranean ingredients.
