Dr Mosley shares ‘surprising’ food to eat to lose weight and ‘prevent cravings’

3 mins read


Dr Michael Mosley often shares his weight loss tips with slimmers online as well as on television. He is the creator of The Fast 800 – a diet plan that helps people lose weight quickly.

When it comes to weight loss, Dr Mosley has previously recommended his Fast 800 diet, especially for beginners.

The diet plan helps slimmers lose weight “fast” and is comprised of three components: the Mediterranean diet, intermittent fasting, and time-restricted eating.

Those following the diet are urged to eat 800 calories or fewer a day.

The plan also outlines the foods and ingredients dieters should eat to stick to this recommended calorie count.

Surprisingly, eating dairy products can help with this and, consequently, contribute to weight loss.

Dr Mosley explained: “Full fat milk and yoghurt is encouraged.

“To people’s great surprise, including me, there have been a large number of recent studies demonstrating that full-fat milk drinkers not only tend to be slimmer than those on lower-fat varieties, but also have a lower risk of metabolic syndrome – or raised blood pressure, elevated blood sugars and raised levels of fats in the blood that can increase your risk of heart disease.

“The likely explanation, according to studies, is that consuming high-fat dairy products keeps you fuller for longer, reducing the lure of sugary snacks.”

Exercise is just as important as diet and this too can “prevent cravings from taking over”.

Dr Mosley advised doing just a few minutes exercise a day.

Even walking up the stairs a few times can act as exercise – as long as you’re moving.

The doctor added: “As soon as you have finished the last meal of the day, brush your teeth.

“It’ll help you to keep away from snacks and nibbles.

“It is also psychological trigger that this is the end of the day.”
