Combine the Fast 800 with Keto for amazing results!
Joining our range of ever-popular Fast 800 meal plans, is the new Fast 800 Keto plan. This plan combines low calories like a Fast 800 with the addition of specially selected low carb meals as per ketogenic diets. This meal plan is designed for people wanting rapid weight loss and improved metabolic health.
Our Fast 800 Keto meal plan is not your average keto diet. It follows the nutritional principles laid out in Dr Michael Mosley’s latest book, The Fast 800 Keto. Following his extensive research, Dr Mosley is explicit in terms of macronutrients and so are we. What you get on this diet is:
- Less than 50g carbohydrates per day, which switches your body into fat burning mode.
- More than 50g protein per day, to suppress hunger, encourage ketosis and maintain muscle mass.
- Plenty of healthy fats such as olive oil, fatty fish and nuts. Unlike many keto diets, Dr Mosley does not advocate for obscene amounts of fat to be consumed!
- Between 800-1000 calories per day. Still called the Fast 800 but more sustainable as it allows higher daily calories without sacrificing results.
The combination of low carbohydrates, high protein and calorie restriction is what sets this meal plan apart. It’s designed to push your body into ketosis and keep it there. And because you’re subduing hunger with high protein, you’re less likely to have food cravings.
While our regular Fast 800 diet insists on intermittent fasting, the Fast 800 Keto leaves the decision up to you. Your body will already be looking to burn fat over carbs, simply because you’re eating low carbs. But the addition of fasting will certainly push you into a state of ketosis quicker.
You can incorporate fasting for 12+ hours (up to 16 hours) per day. A simple way to do this is to bypass eating at the traditional breakfast time, which extends your overnight fast. While your body adjusts to fasting, a good starting point can be to eat between the hours of say, 8am to 8pm and then slowly increase the length of the fast towards 16 hours, which might mean eating between say, 11am and 7pm. You can learn more about the health benefits associated with fasting.
Just like the original Fast 800 diets, you can stay on the new Fast 800 Keto for between 2 weeks and 12 weeks. It’s a wonderful kick-start that could help you lose 1-2kgs per week! After that time, you can switch over to a 5:2 plan or Mediterranean style eating with Individual Meals.
