Not only do you regain the weight youve lost, but you end up heavier than when you started, he said.

Dr Fuller has penned the book Interval Weight Loss, which is premised on redefining the weight your body wants to be, and tricking it into becoming lighter and lighter through a sustainable, scientific solution.

Everyone has a set point which is the weight that a body defends," he said.

"So when you lose weight, your body does all it can to return to that set point.

"This is about changing the bodys set point, not a quick fix that will have you heavier than where you started."

He claims ditching these five foods can help you fight the flab.

Believe it or not, coconut oil is well and truly out.

Clever marketing has led us to believe that this stuff is good for us, but the innocuous-seemingly coconut oil is doing way more harm than good.

With a whooping 120 calories per tablespoon, and 12 grams of saturated fat, not only does it do some serious damage to our waistlines but is also detrimental to our cholesterol levels and blocks our arteries.

Swap the trendy white stuff for olive oil its what the Mediterraneans have been using for centuries and its regular consumption has been shown to reduce your risk of heart disease.

Or white death, as its also referred to, adds absolutely nothing nutrition wise and everything kilogram wise.

This product is so refined that by the times it hits your mouth, you are doing more harm than good when you chow it down.

Whole grains are important sources of fibre which reduce our risk of heart disease and cancer and contain loads of nutrients.

The inclusion of daily consumption of whole grains also helps us lose weight and crucially, maintain that lighter weight.

Bad news even a hard cheese like a cheddar is 70% fat and contains 400 calories per 100 grams a meagre three slices.

Like its trendy friend coconut oil, cheeses consumption is sure to see your weight increase and will also block your arteries.

With the cheese intake way down to once per week, as explained in Interval Weight Loss, the focus of dairy foods should be on regular consumption of skim or low fat milk and yoghurt.

All booze contains 29 kilojoules per gram of energy meaning it is nearly double the energy content of the commonly avoided carbohydrates, or protein-based foods.

There are the much-touted heart health benefits from very small amounts of booze being no more than two standard drinks per day but unless you regularly consume alcohol the extra calories outweigh the potential benefits of taking up drinking.

Zero calories and free from the tap, water is there to optimise how your body works.

Snacking regularly on fresh fruit is a great option for sustainable weight loss.

Dried fruit, not so much! Dried fruit, on average, contains five times the amount of calories as fresh fruit because it has all of the water content stripped out, it making it extremely energy dense.

Despite a trend towards ditching certain fruits, none of them are bad.

Fresh fruit is a crucial part of a sustainable weight loss diet even bananas.
