Our expert says:
If you are a vegetarian eating dairy products and fish, then you should not actually have any nutritional problems. A BMI of 24-25 is still within the normal range, but it may be a good idea to try and reduce your BMI to about 22-23. This you can achieve by switching over from white bread to Best of Both (white bread that has all the positive properties of brown bread) or low-GI bread and reducing your intake of sugars, sweets, etc. Also decrease your portions slightly and eat more regular meals because research indicates that people who skip meals then tend to overeat at the next meal. The fact that you are going to start jogging is excellent. Start carefully so as not to strain yourself and then increase how fast, long and far you jog as you get fitter. This should also contribute to weightloss.
