I am looking into the Fast 800 diet and have purchased and read the Fast 800 book. I have already dabbled in intermittent fasting and followed the keto diet last year which saw me loose 16lbs in 1 month. I have since put about half of this back on, but having gone back to my old way of eating (lots of carbs), I feel bloated and sluggish again with tight fitting clothes etc. I am worried that I am at risk of developing diabetes as it runs in my extended family and want/need to loose about 3 stone to be within a normal healthy weight range.
I think I do have the motivation to succeed as long as I plan well in advance. If I do not plan out my meals in advance I know I will fail.
The mediterranean diet appeals to me and I can see it as a long term way of eating.
The problem I am having is planning meals totalling 800 calories for the day. I know the book gives recipes but some seem a little faffy and include foods that I do not enjoy (prawns, sardines, turmeric, mackerel, pork). I assume just having a salad with meat/fish or similar with vegetables would be okay as long as I was under the 800 calories and following the principles of a mediterranean diet?
I have ordered some of the Fast 800 shakes to help me in times of need (when plans go out the window!).
I am keen to hear personal experiences of people who have tried the Fast 800 and samples of your daily meal plans.
