Our expert says:
I think that you diet is reasonable and should result in weightloss. But I cannot understand why you are "only" having one serving of milk a day. Adult women need at least 3 servings of fat-free or low-fat milk or yoghurt a day to provide them with the 1000 mg of calcium they require for good health. In addition higher calcium intakes promotes weightloss. To answer your questions: 1) Yes, except for the milk/yoghurt, 2) I don't think your lunches are too big, but if you get hungry in the afternoon, it may be a good idea to split the lunch into two and have the second half at about 4 pm to stave off the late afternoon dip in blood glucose levels. 3) Have a fruit when you feel hungry (esp apples with the peel or an orange or berries which are all low energy foods). You can also have 100 ml of fat-free yoghurt when you feel hungry to boost your calcium intake and stop the hunger pangs. 4) Avocados are rich in fat and energy, so one portion is 1/8 of a medium fruit. 5) The dressings will not prevent weightloss and will help to make your food taste better.
The combination of this diet and 5 sessions of cardio exercise per week should help you to lose those kgs.
