Dear Any Good?
Seeing that your present BMI - 25,2 which is fractionally above the upper level of normal (25), it would indeed be a good idea to lose those 7 kg which would reduce your weight down to 59 kg and produce a BMI of 22,5, which is close to ideal for your height. The diet you describe should cause weightloss, but it is certainly not balanced and may well lead to deficiencies if used over a long period. For example, you seem to avoid all milk, yoghurt and dairy products which exposes you to the risk of a calcium deficiency which can cause osteoporosis down the line. Do try and include low-fat or fat-free milk in all those cups of coffee and with your All Bran and add a yoghurt or fat-free cottage cheese to your lunches. The wine does not help because all alcohol contains 29 kJ per gram which is second only to fat (37 kJ/g) in the energy content stakes. I would recommend that you try to reduce your wine intake by 1 glass a week until you are down to 1 glass 2x a week. Your plan to revitalise those good muscles underneath the tyres is excellent, but you can certainly increase that walking to at least 30 min a day - you will find this not only helps to tighten up your muscles and promote weightloss, but also relieves the anxiety. So with these changes to your lifestyle, it should be possible to lose 7 kg in 2 months.
