FORGET the Atkins or 5:2 diet… a simple stroll in the sun can help fight flab.

Researchers at Edinburgh University have discovered that moderate exposure to UV rays may help keep the pounds off.

The study on mice found that nitric oxide – released by the skin after exposure to sunlight – plays a key role in metabolism, fighting obesity and preventing type 2 diabetes.
