Our expert says:
I agree that your gain of 10 kg over the past year is probably due to the excessive energy intake from alcohol (29 kJ per gram/ml) and from eating fatty junk foods (fat provides 37 kJ/gram). For you to lose weight you need to reduce your energy intake down to about 1500 kcal or 6300 kJ per day and to also do some physical activity regularly such as going for brisk walks or cycling. Try using a balanced 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) to start your weightloss going.
