Our expert says:
Congratulations on turning over a new leaf and for doing your exercise despite the freezing weather. The diet you describe is adequate, but please try and have some additional vegies and fruit - these need not be expensive, for example cabbage, pumpkin, sweet potatoes and sweet peppers are rich in protective vit C and beta-carotene. Buy fruits that are in season because they cost less like oranges and grapefruit and are rich in vit C. Then unless you are allergic to milk, please make a plan to include 2-3 servings of dairy in your diet to provide you with the calcium you need to prevent osteoporosis and brittle bones and also to help with the slimming. You can buy low-fat milk powder and use if with a porridge in the morning and make your own yoghurt or cottage cheese. Surf on the Internet for recipes to make homemade yoghurt and cottage cheese. Just use the reconstituted powdered milk instead of fresh milk.
Keep up the good work with the exercise
