Our expert says:
To lose weight you need to reduce your total energy intake and the easiest way of doing this is to reduce (not cut out) your fat intake because each gram of fat contributes 37 kJ of energy to your diet. I don’t know why carbs which have a low energy content (16 kJ per gram) are always regarded as the enemy. Eating carbs without smothering them in fats, oils, mayonnaise, butter, marg, salad dressing, etc, will not hamper weightloss. Click on 'DietnFood' at the top of this page, then on 'Healthy Diets' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of an energy-reduce, low-fat diet that contains high-fibre carbs. Also keep in mind that adding 30 min of exercise per day to your weightloss regimen will assist with the weightloss.
