“The good news is that whether or not you incorporate intermittent fasting, a low-carb Mediterranean diet has a unique power to not only restore your body’s ability to reach and stay at its ideal weight, but also to reduce your risk of serious illness.”
However, Dr. Mosley emphasized that the Mediterranean diet is not about counting calories or cutting out specific ingredients from your diet.
He said: ‘It’s not coming from a place of restriction, it’s more about eating more of the right foods.
“Not only will these foods keep you feeling full, they also provide important nutrients and health benefits, and taste delicious.”

Dr. Mosley even shared his own personal meal plan that he follows to maintain his ideal weight, but also to stay healthy.
He explained: “Eight years ago I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
“I wasn’t particularly overweight, weighing around 189 pounds (86 kg) and didn’t look particularly fat, but that was because a lot of the fat I was carrying was internal.
“I went for a special MRI and discovered that I had a lot of fat clogging my internal organs. “Rather than start taking medication, I decided to try a combination of intermittent fasting and dieting. a Mediterranean diet and I was able to reverse my diabetes.”
As a result, Dr. Mosley sticks to a mushroom omelet diet with kimchi-style sauerkraut for breakfast, a turmeric chicken salad or chickpea tagine for lunch, and a dinner of salmon and broccoli or a bowl of tofu with kimchi rice.
He added: ‘I try to avoid snacking in general, but if I indulge in it once in a while it can be something reasonably healthy like a handful of nuts.
“My wife Clare makes these wonderful sugar-free chocolate brownies that contain beets and dates.
“It’s pretty hard to resist them, but luckily they’re guilt-free.”
Dr. Mosley also drinks plenty of water throughout the day and avoids sugary drinks.
“I might add a slice of lemon or cucumber to my water to brighten it up,” he said.
