Our expert says:
Your present BMI = 23,6 which is very close to the ideal of 22 for which you would need to weigh 57 kg, so you need only lose 4 kg. You are correct that the closer you are to your ideal weight the slower you lose, so you will have to be patient. I do think that you should reduce your wine intake because 100 ml contains approx. 300 kJ, thus your 2 glasses of wine a day could be contributing more than 600 kJ to your energy intake. Cut them out for a day and you 'save' about 10% of your daily energy intake when slimming. Try cutting out the wine for a month and you will probably lose those 4 kg. Once you have reached your goal weight you need to maintain it with a diet that is still low in fat and alcohol and by doing cardio exercise to burn kJ.
