When it comes to weight loss, there are different areas of the body slimmers can target.

According to Dr Mosley, belly fat is “the most important fat to target”.

Luckily, the nutrition expert said, “it is possible to reduce it”.

He explained: “Even the slimmest of people can suffer with belly fat and often, the abdomen is one of the most dangerous places to store fat.

“As if this were not bad enough, fat cells deep in your abdomen – also known as visceral fat – are reluctant to let go of their energy-stash.

“To find the extra energy needed to fuel a small energy deficit, or a standard gym session, your body will look to other reserves first, like your glutes.

“Fortunately, recent breakthroughs in medical and sports science have shown that it is possible to throw this gradient into reverse: you can lose belly fat, and you can lose it fast.”

Dr Mosley went on to note that it is possible to reduce belly fat by making one “key” change to your diet.

He said: “To make a serious impact on your belly fat, cutting out sugar-spikes is key.

“A surprising number of ‘diet’ snacks and drinks are high in sugar and are marketed as diet foods because they happen to be low in fat.”

Dr Mosley recommended eating foods with reduced sugars in them, as well as foods that have fewer carbohydrates.

Carbs are allowed, but the doctor advised eating wholegrain versions, instead of white.

Dr Mosley explained: “This is supported by numerous studies.

“When people cut carbs, their appetite goes down and they lose weight.

“Now, over 20 randomised controlled studies have now shown that lower-carb diets can lead to two or three times more weight loss than low-fat diets.

“So, limit your intake of any food or drink containing more than five percent sugar to no more than twice a week.

“This includes sweet fruits like mango and pineapple, and sugary smoothies and juices.

“Likewise, replace processed carbs like white bread, chips, and pasta with slow-release energy sources, such as brown rice or quinoa.”

Another diet for slimmers to try is the Mediterranean diet.

According to Dr Mosley, this is “one of the healthiest diets on the planet”.

This diet consists of fatty fish, plenty of vegetables, fruits, nuts, wholegrains, chicken, eggs, cheese, yoghurt, and extra virgin olive oil.
