Our expert says:
Seeing that your present BMI = 22,7 which is just slightly above the ideal of 22, there is really no need to go on a diet or to lose weight. Your Indian foods can be used to put together an excellent diet, just cut down on fats and oils, but by all means eat plenty of curried vegetables, salads, yoghurt and brown rice with lean meat and/or fish (if you eat the latter two foods). Although it may take some organising, I would recommend that you try doing at least 30 minutes of exercise a day. Just by buying a skipping rope and skipping every day you can fit your exercise into a busy schedule without having to take time off to go to a gym. Start slowly for about 10 min a day and work up until your are skipping fast for 30 min/day. The exercise will firm and tone your body and may lead to a loss of the odd kg.
