She explained that for anyone looking to lose weight, it’s a good idea to swap refined carbohydrates for whole grains, and why not begin with the first meal of the day, breakfast. 

Dr Zoe presented This Morning presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield with a range of breakfast foods, and asked them to point out which had the most carbs.

“Cornflakes!” Phillip almost shouted.

“If you start your day with cornflakes and you’re starting with an incredibly high carbohydrate diet.” She explained.

The TV doctor revealed that the well-known cereal contains: “84g per 100g, so the cornflakes are 85 percent almost of carbohydrates.”

Dr Zoe’s advice was: “You can live a low-carb lifestyle and that does have benefits for some people, but one shift I think people can think about making is switching from refined carbs to wholegrains. 

So, next time you fancy a sugar packed bowl of cornflakes, grab some oats for a hearty bowl of porridge instead.

Dr Zoe focussed on carb-free diets on today’s show, as she said: “When it comes to lowering carbs or trying to cut out carbs completely, we’ve seen there are three million people [who] have tried it and for most people, they’re not able to keep it up, they’re not able to sustain it.

“There is, however, a community of people – the low-carbers – who rather than a diet, they’ve made it their lifestyle.

“[And] for long term, they’ve made a commitment to significantly reduce the number of carbs they eat for the rest of their lives, [and] that can be a really helpful thing to do for your health, particularly if you’re somebody who is at risk of, or has type 2 diabetes. 

“There’s no right, there’s no wrong, it really depends who you are.”
