Slimmers following the diet plan eat foods which are thought to impact the body’s happy hormone, dopamine.
This encourages dieters to stick to the diet long-term as it becomes a way of life rather than an intense diet.
This can help keep the weight off for good, something which other diets don’t promise.
Tom told GQ: “As a chef, I was grazing and snacking throughout service. Or I’d be eating cheese on toast and packets of crisps because they were quick and there and ready to go.”
He explains that cutting out quick and easy meals was key to losing weight and now enjoys spending time prepping his meals.
The chef also explained how he makes sure to eat breakfast, one of the most important meals of the day.
He explains: “I was a big one to skip breakfast. I didn’t have any.”
Breakfast can benefit the body in many different ways including boosting weight loss results as many breakfast foods can help boost the metabolism, causing the body to burn more calories.
