Dr. Michael Mosley often shares his weight loss tips with slimmers online and on TV. He is the creator of The Fast 800 – a diet plan that helps people lose weight quickly. When it comes to weight loss, there are different areas of the body that can get leaner.
“I wasn’t exactly threatening any Olympic records, but I was quick enough to be relieved when after 10 minutes I was told I could stop.
“It found I was consuming about 16 calories per minute, which meant that after running just over a mile, I burned a total of 160 calories.
“Not bad, I thought.
“But for comparison: a small bar of chocolate contains around 240 calories, while a chocolate muffin has around 500 calories.
Regular exercise is of course essential to a healthy lifestyle, but Dr. Mosley noted that this doesn’t have to be done in a gym or with “expensive equipment”.
He said, “New research shows that by being physically active, we may get less infectious and non-infectious diseases.
“So regular exercise can boost your immune system in addition to the more obvious benefits of fitness and strength.
“It is important to incorporate a combination of high-intensity interval training and resistance training into your lifestyle, as designed for you as a member of our 12-week online program, as studies have shown that this combination, along with occasional exercise, results in weight loss and positive health results. “
Dr. Mosley recommended “starting a routine from the comfort of your home” as it will help “reshape your relationship with exercise”.
Running upstairs is also a sport, says the doctor: “If you don’t have an exercise bike, you can try to step wildly up a hill with your racing bike, run up the stairs or do short sprints on the way, just pick up your walking pace until you breathe heavily.
“The main thing is that these bumps should be short – 30 seconds or less when it comes to going upstairs or running – but hard enough to get your heart rate up.”
