Dr Michael Mosley has helped millions change their lifestyles and lose weight. For anyone considering a diet overhaul, the weight loss guru has shared the top 10 essential foods that should be in cupboards and fridges to make the process easier and to see bigger results. Dr Michael also explained why dieters should “cut out” bread from their diet “completely”.
Dr Michael explained why: “Lots of them, particularly spinach, broccoli, kale, carrots, capsicums, eggplants, tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchinis.
“Pre-cut to snack on.”
He also had a handy tip for where they should be kept: “Put them at the top of the fridge where you will see them when you open the fridge door.”
“Fruit is a great alternative to cakes and biscuits if you feel like something sweet,” the expert revealed
“But limit it to two pieces a day.
“Stick to lower-sugar fruits such as berries, apples, and pears.”
8. Oily fish
The expert explained: “Smoked salmon goes well with eggs for breakfast and canned tuna can be a great snack or lunchtime alternative.
“Aim to eat oily fish two to three times a week.”
9. Beans and lentils
“They usually taste best when sprinkled with olive oil,” he suggested.
“Sneak a handful into stews, salads and bakes.”
10. Fizzy water and herbal teas
“Soda water can help to ease hunger pangs without adding calories,” Dr Michael commented.
“Include a piece of lemon, lime or cucumber for flavour.
“Herbal teas are another useful alternative to sugary drinks.”
