Back in 2012, Michael presented Eat, Fast, Live Longer, an episode of the long-running Horizon series on BBC. Here he explored the science behind the ancient idea of fasting, which he found to have life-changing results.
Michael first became interested in intermittent fasting when he discovered, through a random blood test, that he had type 2 diabetes. Determined to find a drug-free way to ‘cure’ his diabetes, he tested a number of different forms of intermittent fasting.
Following the success of Eat, Fast & Live Longer Michael co-authored a book called The Fast Diet with Evening Standard journalist Mimi Spencer. Since then, he has authored a number of best selling books, including The 8-week blood sugar diet:how to beat diabetes fast; The Fast 800 Diet; and The Fast 800 Keto. Based on his popular podcast, Michael’s latest book is Just One Thing, published in 2022.
Following the success of his 2019 theatre tour Trust Fast Health, Michael will be taking to the stage again in 2024 with his wife Dr Clare Bailey in their theatre show Eat well, Sleep better, and Live longer! With the growing issue of mental and physical health problems, Michael and Clare will reveal how simple life changes can have a transformative affect.
