Dear Chris
Basically people who need or want to lose weight, should reduce their energy intake by 2100 kJ. If you are a man, then a daily energy intake of about 7600 kJ should promote weightloss at the rate of 0,5 to 1 kg per week, esp if combined with regular, daily aerobic exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) for 30 min/day. Seeing that your present BMI = 30,1 which is very high, it would be excellent if you can lose those 10 kg, because this would reduce your BMI to 26,8 which would be close to the upper level of the normal range (BMI = 18-25). The low-GI diet should promote weightloss esp if you ensure that you only use low-fat foods.
