Our expert says:
Because you don't list your present weight in kg and height in metres, I cannot calculate your BMI to see if your weight is already in the normal range or if your desire to lose 8 kg is necessary and/or feasible! While aerobic exercise is an excellent aid to weightloss, it usually does not induce pronounced weightloss (like the 8 kg you want to lose) on its own. You do need to combine your exercise with a slimming diet of about 6300 kJ by eating 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). From your description of the gym class you attend the intensity of the exercise does not sound intensive enough to produce significant weightloss. It is good that you have added extra cycling to the regimen. Either discuss your exercise schedule with the instructor or join up with another class that is more active.
But make sure that your goal of 8 kg is realistic otherwise you are going to be disappointed.
