Michael Mosley shares 16:8 weight loss diet plan and explains ‘calorie window’

TV doctor Michael Mosley is back with more helpful diet advice, and has recently shared the benefits of intermittent fasting.

The practice is a large part of many of his diet plans, and recently Michael’s Fast800 page has shared advice for its ‘maximum fasting’ method




It is called the 16:8 diet, and sees people taking a 16-hour break between dinner and breakfast the following morning.

A recent post on his Fast800 Instagram page read: “Intermittent fasting consists of following an eating pattern where you either refrain from consuming calories in any form daily for a period of hours, or significantly reduce your calorie intake across your day.”

The post goes on to explain Time Restricted Eating (TRE) and how you have a window to eat, which depends on the diet that best suits you.

In the case of the 16:8 diet, as the name suggests, you should fast for 16 hours, and have an eight hour window to eat.

It continues: “For example, 16:8 may mean you consume calories anywhere within a window of 8 hours, like 12pm-8pm, and fast for 16 hours. ⁠

Medicine’s next weapon against COVID

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) – Since the COVID pandemic started, we’ve learned so much about the virus.

Science tells us it can survive up to 72 hours on plastic and stainless steel surfaces, and 24 hours on cardboard. New findings suggest you can get COVID by just touching contaminated surfaces, so researchers are developing new ways to kill COVID before it becomes a threat.

“COVID created a lot of problems for humanity,” said Sudipta Seal. “But it also created a lot of opportunities.”

A team of UCF researchers stepped up to the challenge and created a nano-based disinfectant that can kill several viruses, including COVID.

“When you shrink a material down to nano dimensions, they have unique physical-chemical properties,” said Craig Neal. “The nanomaterial itself has this antiviral property.”

The particles are so small, it would take 100,000 of them to be as thick as a single strand of human hair.

A nano-coating uses everyday white light to generate UV light and destroy the virus. It was originally designed for protective equipment like gloves, facemasks and visors, but researchers believe the coating could work about everywhere.

The team at University of Central Florida is working to create a spray for another material. They’re testing it on multiple viruses and believe it can be tweaked to fight other pathogens.
