Midlife Real Life Video Chat Show with guest Dr Clare Bailey : How to best lose weight over 50, fasting and eating to combat the Coronavirus

Article by Ceri Wheeldon

For this episode of the Midlife Real Life chat show, we have as our guest Dr Claire Bailey, wife of Michael Mosley, a GP who has pioneered the Fast 800 diet and the Blood Sugar Diet and is the author of many successful books.

I am joined by panellists stylist and brand consultant Maggie McMillan and make-up artist Jo Jewett of the Make Up Training Company.

We ask Clare to share her tips on how to lose weight quickly and effectively over 50. Clare explains the benefits of an anti-inflammatory Mediterranean diet, fermented foods and intermittent fasting , not just in respect to weight loss, but also reducing the risk factors in the context of Covid-19. How maintaining a healthy body weight, having a healthy gut, and reversing diabetes are tools in our amour against the disease.

Questions about diet and Covid include:

Can nutrition help to support us in terms of boosting our immunity or increasing our ability to cope with the virus if we catch it?

Are there specific foods we should eat more of both in terms of age and in terms of protecting against Covid?

A lot has been said about vitamin D helping in the fight against Covid – how we include in our diet? CERI

Are there specific supplements we should be taking in our 50s and 60s from both a general health and Covid perspective?

There are reports that those with diabetes are at greater risk – why is this and what can we do diet wise to prevent or reverse diabetes?

What are your thoughts on a  general anti-inflammatory diet – and could it help in terms of Covid

How do we best avoid comfort eating – or drinking more alcohol?

What would you say to those who are experiencing non-Covid medical symptoms but do not want to go to the doctor or A&E for fear of being exposed to the virus?

This is a highly informative session. There is so much we can do to help ourselves live healthily as we age, and also give ourselves the best possible chance of fighting the virus.

If we follow the principles of the Fast 800 diet we can see positive changes in respect to weight and blood sugar levels within weeks.

Clare shares with us her favourite fermented recipe, but there are many more on the Fast 800 website.

Its never too late to change your lifestyle – including your diet, and there has never been a greater motivation to do so.
