Obesity is a huge issue in the UK and around two-thirds of adults are above a healthy weight, and of these, half are obese.

One expert has revealed how you can kick start your weight loss journey with delicious foods that will help you blast belly fat.

Getting rid of belly fat, or visceral fat is key to wellbeing.

Dr Michael Mosley, creator of the Fast 800 and 5:2 diets said low-carbohydrate and high protein diets are a great place to start.

It’s important that if you are starting any new type of diet plan that you consult your GP.

As part of his diet plan, Dr Mosley said that adults should consume at least 60g of protein a day.

If you’re trying to lose weight then Dr Mosley said you should consider upping your intake.

The NHS says that proteins such as meat, eggs, fish and pulses are all good sources of protein and are essential for the body to grow and repair itself.

For example a medium egg contains about 13g of protein, with a 100g chicken breast containing 31g.

Dr Mosley said that people who eat less than 60g of protein a day could be harming their metabolic rate.

Your metabolic rate is key for weight loss as it is the number of calories you burn as your body performs basic life-sustaining function.

He explained: “Your body will cannibalise your muscles and your metabolic rate will go down.”

As well as making sure you’re getting enough protein in your diet, Dr Mosley is an advocate of the Mediterranean-style diet.

This diet focusses on foods which are good for you, and low in foods that have a high sugar content.

The NHS explains: “The Mediterranean diet varies by country and region, so it has a range of definitions.
