Mrs Mosley added: “We take comfort in the fact that he almost made it. He made an incredible climb, took the wrong path and collapsed where he could not easily be seen by the vast search team.»

Over the years, many British viewers have relied on Dr Mosley, a long-time science and health researcher, for his debunked advice on diet, exercise and sleep. Trained as a doctor before venturing into television, Dr Mosley hosted the popular BBC health podcast ‘Just One Thing’ and appeared on the show ‘Trust Me, I’m A Doctor’.

He produced a number of health and science programs for the broadcaster and often volunteered for experimentation in the documentaries he presented. He ate parasites and experimented with magic mushrooms, but was best known for popularizing the 5:2 diet, a form of intermittent fasting that involves five days of normal eating and two days of fasting each week.

In 2002 he was nominated for an Emmy for “The Human Face,” a series that examines the science behind beauty.

More recently, he published two series with British broadcaster Channel 4 investigating obesity in Britain and the nutrition behind everyday consumer spending. This year he toured Britain with his wife, also a doctor and health columnist, with an interactive live show focusing on healthy living.
