Don’t just take it from us
The Fast 800 lifestyle is designed on the latest in diet and health research.
A staggering 46% of participants in the intervention (800 cal) group achieved remission from diabetes, compared to only 4% in the control group. Weight loss statistics were equally impressive, after 12 months 24% of the 800 group had still lost more than 15kg of weight, compared to 0% in the control group. Not only did they lose more weight, but also kept more of it off.
The intervention (800 cal) group lost over three time more weight than the control group, losing an average of 10.7kg 12 months after starting the programme. 45% of participants in the 800 cal group lost more than 10% of their initial body weight. The intervention group also showed more improvements in various other health markers than the control group.
The three cycles of FMD reduced body weight, trunk and total body fat, blood pressure and IGF-1 in comparison to a normal diet. These results were especially pronounced in the most ‘at risk’ portions of the trial groups.
The participants on the IECR diets had lost, on average, twice as much body fat as those on the DER diet. Participants on the IECR diets also had significantly greater reductions in insulin resistance than those on the DER diet.
Participants who stuck to the diet lost 8% of their initial body weight on average during the 8 weeks. Subjects’ asthma-related symptoms, control, peak expiratory flow (PEF) and quality of life (QoL) significantly improved. Results showed that an ADCR diet can have rapid and sustained beneficial effects.
