Our expert says:
At your present weight, your BMI = 33,5 which is in the obese range. It would be good if you could lose at least 12 kg to get back into the lower range of 'overweight', as this would improve your health a great deal. The regimen you describe should lead to weightloss, but the slimming diet you describe is not balanced and you are drinking up to 5 litres of water a day which is going to exhaust your electrolytes (i.e. sodium potassium, magnesium and calcium). You can try using an 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), which when combined with your exercises should produce weightloss at the rate of between 0,5 and 1 kg per week. Adults require 2,5 litres of LIQUID (which can include water) per day. If you drink too much water, the kidneys have to excrete all this water and liquid which means that the above mentioned electrolytes are also washed out of the body. Please try to moderate your liquid intake so that you don't develop electrolyte deficiencies which can have many negative effects, including weight gain (!) due to water retention - something you don't need in your life.
Keep up the exercises, esp the skipping.
