The 16:8 diet will help you shift stubborn pounds while STILL eating your favorite foods

With the weather starting to turn chillier, it’s getting harder and harder to muster up the motivation to workout, and so much more tempting to snuggle up with a glass of wine or bowl of pasta on the couch. 

But how about if you could shift those extra lockdown pounds without having to spend hours pushing yourself through home workouts AND without sacrificing your favorite foods?

Celebrity nutritional therapist Gabriela Peacock has helped a long line of VIP clients look and feel their best with her GP4:3 Plan, which uses the concept of intermittent fasting* to achieve healthy and lasting weight loss.   

Nutritional therapist Gabriela Peacock, who counts a number of high-profile names among her clients, has introduced the GP16:8 Plan, which uses the principles of intermittent fasting

Now Gabriela has introduced a new program based on the same principles but one that means you don’t have to commit to fasting days. Best of all, since you don’t have to worry about counting calories, NOTHING is off the menu. 

Gabriela explains: ‘The 16:8 method of intermittent fasting involves consuming all your calories in an eight-hour “Eating Window”. 

‘It’s great for those who don’t want to count calories, I tell my patients to eat mindfully and focus on getting a protein with each meal, some green veg and quality carbohydrates.’ 

Gabriela says that she’s used the 16:8 method of intermittent fasting before a vacation to help her feel her best on the beach. It’s also perfect for shaping up for a big event, which is why so many of Gabriela’s high-profile clients love it.

Read on for everything you need to know about the GP16:8 Plan and see whether it could work for you!

How does the GP16:8 Plan work?  

Many of us will have heard of the 5:2 intermittent fasting* plan, which involves eating normally for five days and then ‘fasting’ for two.

The fasting component of any intermittent fasting program usually involves significantly reducing the number of calories you consume on particular days of the week. You then return to eating normally for the other non-fasting days.

Katy, 43, from New York, was one of Gabriela's first clients to try the GP16:8, and she said that it was the perfect way to kickstart healthy eating and get her diet and lifestyle back on track

The GP16:8 Plan works slightly differently as rather than reducing calories for a whole day you fast completely for 16 hours and then eat normally in the other eight hours.

The best part is that most of your fasting hours can be timed for when you’re asleep, so you’ll never feel like you’re restricting yourself or going hungry for too long. 

Even if you start to feel hungry, you’ll know that normal eating can resume in just a matter of hours – which makes the plan so much easier to stick to.

It’s simple-to-follow, plus with the plan from GP Nutrition you’ll be guided through the process as the kit comes with access to a supportive online community and an initial one-to-one consultation with an in-house nutritionist.

It’s designed to help you start forming healthy habits and become more mindful about when you’re eating as well as what you’re eating. 

Katy said she loved the fact that the GP16:8 program doesn't involve strict calorie counting and that she found the overnight fasting was actually really easy

Although no foods are banned, Gabriela encourages her clients to think carefully about what they choose to eat during the eight hours of non-fasting.

One of Gabriela’s first clients to try the plan was 43-year-old Katy from New York. She said that the GP16:8 was the perfect way to kickstart healthy eating and to get her diet and lifestyle back on track.  

Katy added: ‘The plan explained everything and I loved the personalized advice I got from the nutritional therapist. 

‘I love that there wasn’t any strict calorie counting and after a couple of days of getting used to it, found the overnight fasting was really easy – I actually felt really energized in the mornings and my concentration was improved.’

The beauty of the GP16:8 14-day and 28-day programs is that they’re incredibly simple to follow, but to help you find the greatest success, GP Nutrition has put together a kit with everything you need.

What does Slim Me^ do? The simple supplement that supports GP16:8 

In the GP16:8 box you’ll find both Slim Me drinks and Slim Me capsules to help you stick to the program. But what exactly do these supplements do? And can they REALLY help aid healthy weight loss? 

The Slim Me drinks each contain 1.5g of glucomannan† which contributes to weight loss, when a minimum of 3g of glucomannan is taken daily, in three doses, with water and alongside an energy-restricted diet. 

In fact, glucomannan is the only EFSA approved food proven to contribute to weight loss.

Mixed with one to two glasses of water, these powders combine with the water to make a delicious and refreshing drink, flavored with Sicilian lemons. Drink one, 20 to 30 minutes before each meal and the fiber will help promote a feeling of fullness. 

They’re a great way to get extra fiber into your diet, working alongside the starches you already get from food. They’ll help you to reduce your portion sizes during your eight-hour eating window and curb your cravings when you’re fasting.

If you’re constantly on-the-go, you might prefer to reach for the Slim Me capsules which are pre-packaged into handy daily sachets.

In each sachet you’ll find the GP multinutrient‡, as well as a digestive support capsule and a metabolism support capsule.
