Why your diet isn’t working: Michael Mosley’s six things to change right now
Dr Michael Mosley likes to live on the edge — the cutting edge of health science, to be exact. Famous for his gonzo-style medical journalism and best-selling books The Fast Diet and more recently, The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet , Mosley loves nothing more than to bust myths, dig deeper and challenge conventional health and nutrition advice. The smarter choice? Sparkling water with a slice of lemon or lime. Mosley, who created the diet based on two days per week of reduced-kilojoule fasting says that intermittent fasting assists weight loss and improves blood pressure, cholesterol and insulin sensitivity.

The 5:2 Diet
Welcome to the Fast — working with Dr Michael Mosley, we use the latest scientific research to create a game-changing approach to weight loss and healthy living. A few years ago, Dr Mosley found his weight creeping up, putting on the dangerous visceral fat around his stomach. The diagnosis of diabetes was a sudden shock, driving him to do some research into modern lifestyle advice. Involving eating calories a day every day, this has been shown to help people shift the most weight, and keep it off, in the shortest time. A series of groundbreaking studies have also shown approaches like this can result in a long term weight loss and reversal of type 2 diabetes. This is for people who want to lose weight in an easy and sustainable way, while still being able to eat well most of the time.

The diet is claimed to promote weight loss and to have several beneficial effects on health; however, there is little evidence about the safety and effectiveness of the diet.
