Doctor Michael Mosleyinventor of the intermittent fasting or Fast 5: 2 diethe recently listed three food groups that you should avoid if you want burn fat faster. Often, erroneously, advice is thought to be based on the principles of diet Keto automatically put the body into ‘fat burning’ mode. Dr. Mosley, in an interview with This Morning, the ITV program, reiterated that drastically cut calories it is not always the best method for losing pounds; indeed, those on a diet should take note instead of how much sugar, starchy carbohydrates And processed meat he eats.
As reported by the Daily RecordDr. Mosley recalled how avoiding this type of food can instead have beneficial effects on metabolismurging people to stop consuming sugary drinks, cereals, and even fruit smoothies fortified with sweeteners.
“They go reduced sugar, sugary products, soft drinks and desserts – said Mosley – This includes most of the cereals eaten for breakfast, which are usually full of sugar, as well as most of the smoothies bought and not made at home.
Unlike other weight loss tips that focus on removing fat from your diet, it’s better avoid or minimize starchy carbohydrates, such as white bread, pasta, potatoes and white rice. Instead, introducing legumes such as lentils, beans and chickpeas to meals as “healthy and filling” alternatives is a good way to keep fit at the table. “Switch to whole grains including bulgur, whole rye, whole barley, brown rice and buckwheat.”
Mosley also suggests following a diet that we know very well, queen among others, and also recognized as UNESCO heritage: that Mediterranean. “That means more olive oil and nuts, as well as eggs, whole yogurt, fatty fish and vegetables. Make sure you fill up on protein and veggies on fasting days. Proteins are very filling and you can eat many vegetables, taking in very few calories ».
Last input, but not least, the processed meatsas well as the processed foods in general, they should be avoided, as they are often “rich in sugar, fat and salt, as well as chemical flavors and preservatives”.
Among offending foodsthere are: chicken meatballs, cold cuts, sausages, hamburgers, fries, pizza, hot dogs, prepackaged meals, packaged ice creams, desserts, chips, energy bars, baked goods, biscuits, margarine and practically anything with the word ” instant »on the package, ie exotic products, soups and instant desserts.
“These foods are designed to trigger reward mechanisms in our brains – concludes Mosley – So once we start eating them we find it really hard to stop. But once this mechanism is defused habituationyou can easily do without it ».
