I’m hoping you can help as I’ve reached a point where I’m at a loss to figure out what to do next.
Last year I spent 18 weeks on the 800 diet after being 96kg (173cm,42yrs,male) and I reached 79kg.
However as soon as I came off the diet, I began gaining weight. I wasn’t even eating a lot, around 1200 calories with more carbs.
But within a few weeks I had gone back to 83kg. I didn’t go back on 800 but attempted to eat clean.
I carried on gaining, a half kilo per week and then panic set it and had habits returned. I few months later and I was 85kg.
12 months after being 79kg, I’m 91kg.
I’ve just watched a program on channel 4 where it talks of this diet but nobody mentions what happens after the initial phase is over.
Can Dr Mosley or anyone else comment on this whose managed to complete the 12 weeks on 800 calories and better still, has kept the weight off?
