Our expert says:
Your present BMI = 23,3 which is nicely within the normal range. For an ideal BMI of 22 you would only need to lose 4 kg, so you do not need to use such a starvation diet to achieve your goal. I suspect that when you fitted into a size 8 dress you were practically anorexic which is not desirable and can expose you to many stresses. Please check out the balanced, low-fat, high-fibre diet on this Website (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 make the necessary changes to your proposed food intake which may lead to nutrient deficiencies because it is so minimalistic. You can also increase your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life), to promote weight loss without having to starve and to firm up your body.
