Dear Can't Lose Weight
Seeing that your present BMI = 23,2, which is very close to the ideal for adult women, your body will resist losing more weight because it always tries to maintain a balance or homeostasis. The diet you describe is also not completely balanced and you may find that using a more structured approach will help you shed the last 3 kg to reach an ideal BMI of 22. Rather do more exercise than to starve yourself all the time as this encourages the body to conserve its reserves and not to lose weight. Exercise on the other hand, not only increases the use of kJ, but also stimulates the metabolism and tighten muscles.
