Our expert says:
I think one week of a diet is not long enough to judge if you will lose weight on it or not, and I would encourage you to continue with the diet. The only changes I would make it to use low-fat milk instead of buttermilk and to have slightly less protein (about 50g) for supper. Also try to make sure that you are doing aerobic exercise (brisk walking) with your doggie, as this does promote weightloss. Remember that it is not the carbs that cause weight gain (they only contain 16 kJ per gram), but the fats we add to them (fat contains 37 kJ per gram). If you find that you are still not losing after another week, try halving your snacks and cut out the Milo which is quite high in energy.
Give this regimen and yourself a bit more time.
