Dr Michael Mosley is the man behind the 5:2 diet and Fast 800 weight loss plans. He has spent years researching how to lose weight and thousands of people have successfully done so by following his diet and exercise advice. For anyone on a diet, it can be tricky managing cravings, luckily Dr Michael has two ways to curb your need for tasty treats and stay on track.
Dr Michael is a fan of scientific data, and he cited a recent survey which suggested Brits have “put on an average of 10lbs since the pandemic struck.”
Exercise is an important part of losing weight.
Dr Michael said: “While exercise alone is unlikely to lead to weight loss – I’m afraid that’s what the studies show.
“[But exercise] is absolutely vital in so many other ways: being active and fit means better health, better mood and even a better sex life.”
Cucumber or celery are also good snack options.
“I also find high protein snacks like nuts or a small bit of cheese satisfying,” the expert added.
Nuts promote heart health, but Dr Michael recommends buying a small pack, “such as almonds or walnuts” instead of your favourite nuts, like salted peanuts as you can “easily eat the whole pack”.
