Boris has always been an advocate for cycling, and is likely doing some of his favourite exercise to keep his fitness up too.

Exercising in the morning in they key, he has said.

“The great thing about going for a run at the beginning of the day is that nothing could be worse for the rest of the day,” Boris said.

“If you really go in hard, if you really take some exercise at the beginning, the rest of the day will be a breeze.”

On being obese and coronavirus, the government has said: “The current evidence does not suggest that having excess weight increases people’s chances of contracting COVID-19.

“However, the data does show that obese people are significantly more likely to become seriously ill and be admitted to intensive care with COVID-19 compared to those with a healthy BMI.

“One study found that for people with a BMI of 35 to 40, risk of death from COVID-19 increases by 40 percent and with a BMI over 40 by 90 percent, compared to those not living with obesity.

“Other data found that in intensive care units, 7.9 percent of critically ill patients with COVID-19 had a BMI over 40 compared with 2.9 percent of the general population.”

One man revealed how he lost five stone by following a certain weight loss diet plan.

Weight Watchers is an easy diet plan that involves dieting and exercising.

It requires dieters to stay within their allocated points per day which are assigned to all food and drink.

Mo, has shared how the plan helped him to lose weight as well as make better eating habits and exercise more often.

He said: “My WW journey started in September 2018. At the time, I had no idea of the profound impact it would have on me, particularly the mental and physical transformation I would go through. It’s definitely changed my life for the better.”
