Weight loss is something that many want to achieve, but few succeed without the right recommendations. Dr. Michael Mosley revealed his ultimate weight loss diet hack.

Eating protein-rich foods – like eggs – is the foundation of a Mediterranean diet, which is considered one of the most effective eating plans for staying fit and healthy.

Foods high in protein are vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts, beans, grains or fish.

Dr. Mosley said, “A Mediterranean low-carb diet has unique power in not only restoring your body’s ability to reach and staying at its ideal weight, but also in reducing your risk of serious illness.

“It’s not from a place of restriction; it’s about eating more of the right foods.”

DO NOT MISS

He continued, “These foods are not only filling, but also provide important nutrients and health benefits, and taste delicious.”

Dr. Mosley also recommended high-intensity exercise as the most effective for losing weight quickly.

“Not only is it a very effective way to get fit, but it’s also incredibly fast so there is no excuse not to do it.

“I recommend just 10 minutes on a static bike three times a week, plus quick strengthening exercises that don’t require special equipment.”

He said, “If you don’t have an exercise bike, you can try wildly pedaling your road bike up a hill, running up stairs, or doing short sprints while running.

“Or just increase your walking pace until you are breathing heavily.

“The main thing is that these shocks should be short (maximum 30 seconds when it comes to stairs or running) but hard enough to get your heart rate up.”

During his podcast series Just One Thing, the doctor revealed another tip for losing weight: eat fermented foods.

Fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi, and kefir are made through the controlled growth of beneficial microorganisms.

“I do it!” he said.

“I make my own sauerkraut and kimchi and we also make kombucha,” said Dr. Mosley.

Other benefits of fermented foods include lower risk of diabetes and metabolic syndrome, better digestive health, and better immune systems.
