Dr Michael Mosley is famous of his weight loss advice and it seems he practices what he preaches when it comes down to it. The nutritionist revealed he gets his exercise in during little chunks, something he stated is “the answer” for anyone who needs to lose weight but is tight for time in their busy days.
Speaking on his BBC show Just One Thing, Dr Mosley revealed how he uses his “exercise snacking” technique to maintain his overall health and weight.
“I use something quick and simple called exercise snacking,” he said.
“It’s little bursts throughout he day rather than fitting it all into a full workout.”
He added: “Stairs are a particularly good way to get in a few exercise snacks.”

All can be done in short chunks and built up to the individual’s needs.
“Exercise snacking really could be the answer to someone who wants to get more into a busy day but does have much time,” Dr Mosley said.
Alongside a healthy diet, exercise serves as an important strategic role in a person’s weight loss journey.
Getting more physical activity increases the number of calories the body uses for energy or burns off.
This, combined with reducing the number of calories a person is consuming per day, then creates a calorie deficit that will result in weight loss.
Not only that, but exercise also has mental and physical benefits that can affect people’s health and overall quality of life.
