For all we now know about healthy eating, it is alarming to see obesity levels in the UK continue to rise.

Although many of us eat a lot of the wrong food obviously, I don’t think it’s simply because we’re greedy or weak-willed. New research indicates that current obesity rates are driven, at least in part, by a deficiency of a key macronutrient: high-quality protein.

That’s why, on a three-phase weight loss plan, you can snack on salami chips or halloumi potatoes and enjoy a bowl of protein-rich chocolate mousse or mini cheesecake without jeopardizing your weight-loss success.

Protein is essential for building muscles, hormones, and much of the infrastructure of our bodies. Every cell in our bodies contains protein, and eating enough of it is absolutely vital for growth and repair. Good sources of high-quality protein include eggs, fish, meat, beans, legumes, and tofu.

Although it is clear that many of us eat a lot of the wrong food, I don't think it is simply because we are greedy or weak-willed.

Although it is clear that many of us eat a lot of the wrong food, I don’t think it is simply because we are greedy or weak-willed.

Recent research from Australia has shown that we have a specific appetite for protein and when the protein content of the food we eat is too low, we are compelled to keep eating until we meet our protein need.

This helps explain why it’s so easy to polish a big bag of chips or a box of cookies in one sitting on some of us!

That’s why we’ve made protein an essential part of every phase of the new Fast 800 keto diet plan. In the first phase of the fast weight loss diet, where you stick to a limit of 800 to 900 calories per day, you should aim to eat at least 50 grams of protein per day.

On intermittent fasting (Phase 2), when you don’t need to count calories on non-fasting days, 60g to 80g of protein per day is recommended and closer to 100g for the elderly, as we tend to absorb less protein as we get older.

And in a “Way of Life” maintenance plan, you can achieve optimal health and prevent weight gain by eating at least 1g of protein per kilogram of body weight (so, if you weigh 80kg, that’s 80g of protein per day).

All recipes created for the plan by my wife, Dr. Clare Bailey (follow her on Instagram for recipe videos and tips at #drclarebailey), have been carefully calibrated to ensure enough quality protein in every meal.

In this three-phase weight loss plan, you can snack on salami chips or halloumi potatoes and enjoy the occasional plate of protein-rich chocolate mousse.

On fasting days (and throughout the rapid weight loss phase), you can choose to eat three meals or two meals. And as long as you stay within your daily calorie limits, you can indulge in a selection of tempting low-carb, high-protein snacks like the ones featured here, safe in the knowledge that you’re topping up your fat-burning fuel.

Medical note: Rapid weight loss is not for everyone. If you are frail, have a serious underlying medical condition, take insulin, have type 2 diabetes, take medication, take blood pressure medication, have moderate or severe retinopathy, have epilepsy or gallstones , pregnant or nursing, please talk to your doctor before following this diet. It is not suitable for adolescents, people with a history of eating disorders, mental illness, patients, underweight or endurance exercisers.
