Our expert says:
From what you mention, your diet should not actually be causing weight gain, but it could be too low in energy and it is not completely balanced (e.g. you are not including any fat-free milk or dairy products like yoghurt to ensure that you ingest 1000 mg of calcium/day). Compare your diet with an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet’ and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet) and try the latter for 2 weeks to see if you can lose weight with this more balanced intake. Also try to exercise at least 5 days a week for 30 min or longer (the brisk walking and dance aerobics are excellent). Check out my reply to ‘Slim Inside’ which lists a number of factors that can cause weight gain and what to do about them.
I hope you start losing now
