Our expert says:
The basis of weightloss is to reduce your energy intake moderately (NOT excessively) and to increase your energy output moderately. In other words, your lifestyle when slimming should not deviate too much from everyday living otherwise you will undo all the good work when you revert to eating normally again. Try eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet & Nutrition' at the top of this page, then on 'Healthy Diets' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increase your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) for at least 30 min a day.
Try to use weightloss as a period of adjusting your food intake and exercise levels to a healthy pattern that you can use for the rest of your life.
