“Adding TRE (Time-Restricted Eating) enhances the effect,” she said.
“This means eating within a 12 or eight-hour window and this helps too – as long as you don’t eat most of it late in the day.”
The health expert revealed her husband will rely on this diet if he feels the need to get on top of his diet.
She said: “And if the weight starts to creep back on you do a few 800 cal days to get back on track. That’s what Michael does now and then.”
