Dr Michael Mosley shares four snacks that you should be eating – as well as one to avoid

Dr Michael Mosley has shared four foods that everyone should incorporate into their diet to stay fit and healthy, as well as one that should be avoided.

The founder of the Fast 800 diet based his programme on three approaches – The Very Fast 800, The New 5:2 and the Way of Life.

In all three methods, the renowned TV doctor suggests that people should consume a ‘moderately low-carb, Mediterranean-style diet’ made up of eggs, full-fat yoghurt, vegetables, dairy and nuts. Dieters should also be eating full meals as opposed to snacking throughout the day to see the biggest and best results.

Dr Mosley explained: “Snacking spikes your insulin levels between meals and tends to increase hunger. Try to avoid snacks, especially on fasting days.”

The Express reports that Dr Mosley however shared that those who find themselves feeling incredibly peckish during the day are fine to reach for certain foods. He added: “If required, have some non-starchy veg, a sliver of cheese or some berries.

“Alternatively, nuts are a great source of protein, fibre and micronutrients.”

Nuts provide a fantastic source of protein, minerals and vitamins – as well as healthy fats and fibres, and when not taken as a snack, they can be enjoyed alongside meals, or in stews and salads. He went on: “Almond or coconut flour makes a good low-carb alternative to flour for baking – yes, you can bake healthy treats!”

People reaching for nuts as a daytime snack should however avoid certain kinds, including salted and sweetened nuts as these can “be moreish and easy to overeat” according to Dr Mosley. Another weight-loss friendly snack could come in the form of plain, Greek-style yoghurt with healthy berries.

Alternatively, smashed avocado on wholemeal toast or crackers can fill the void. All of Dr Mosley’s weight loss approaches advise slimmers to stock up on high-quality proteins like fish, prawns, chicken, turkey and pork. Meanwhile, plant-based foodies may opt for the likes of edamame beans, nuts and seeds.

Dr Mosley also advises that people steer well clear of processed meats like bacon and salami, citing that if you do indulge, you should do so rarely and in small quantities.
