You have already made one great change for the better by joining Walk for Life and running 17 km per week - well done! Now take the next step to also introduce diet modifications into your slimming regimen. As a guideline, you can try 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). Tell yourself that you are going to fix up both the exercise and the diet aspect and leave behind those bics and chocs until you have lost at least 10 kg, so that your BMI which is at present 27, 9 will be down to 24,1 and nicely in the normal range.\
