Cutting carbs may be harder than people think, but Dr. Michael Mosley has a practical solution: three tasty alternatives that will help them lose weight faster. Although his Fast 800 diet plan offers a fast weight loss approach, he acknowledged that dieting isn’t easy.
Although people lose weight quickly and are “less likely” to be plagued by hunger and cravings, switching from a high carb diet to a low carb diet will definitely have an impact on slimmer people.
But Dr. Mosley noted that once a person has made a commitment to losing weight, they “have to make that commitment.”
This means staying away from sugary puddings and eating “much less” food than usual.
But he revealed that there were positives. He said: “The good news is that I used the latest scientific thinking on appetite and fat metabolism.”
Its new formula is based on consuming more protein and fewer carbohydrates, which means that the pounds lost will be stubborn and difficult to move fat and not muscle.

He explained that carbohydrates come in three forms in the average diet: sugars, starches and fruits.
He said: “To achieve ketosis, you need to stop feeding your body sugar or carbohydrates that easily raise your blood sugar.
“So for the first phase of the diet, high-carb bread, cereals, cakes, cookies, pasta, and potatoes are off the table and out of the house. Even a cookie or a small bar of chocolate might be enough to kick your body out of ketosis,” he warned.
The diet guru also recommended, in the initial phase of rapid weight loss, to avoid starchy foods and most fruits, except berries.
