Our expert says:
The idea that you can reduce energy intake and lose weight might not actually work - you may in fact find that you gain weight by doing this, because your body conserves energy. ANd by extension, it might be that you would actually lose weight by increasing your daily energy intake. I know that sounds bizarre, but we see a lot of people who struggle to lose weight, until they actually eat more, not less!
Your exercise seems ok - I would say that months in, you should probably be trying to do a little more of the higher intensity training. I'd say you should be averaging 45 minutes to an hour, and if you could train 5 days a week, it would help. I'd rather you added one day a week than 30 minutes a day, if you follow my argument.
The training has clearly helped you, you're stronger and fitter, so that's good. But you may need to make subtle changes to lose weight - you don't have too much to lose, perhaps, and that last hurdle is tough to clear sometimes.
