Our expert says:
It is important to understand that each human being on earth has a different metabolism. Just because your friends lose weight faster than you do, does not mean that if you stick to a balanced, low-fat, high-fibre diet and so daily aerobic exercise (swimming, cycling, skipping, brisk walking, etc) that you will not lose weight. You mention that you lose about 0,5 kg per week, which is actually ideal because slow, steady weightloss will ensure that you don't regain the weight you have lost. So please be sensible and remember that to lose weight you need to basically change your lifestyle. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'DietnFood' at the top of this page, then on 'Healthy Diets' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increase your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life)for at least 30 minutes a day. While you are on the ‘DietnFood’ site, read about every aspect of slimming (the dangers of diet pills, slimming aids, psychological aspects of slimming, etc) by also checking out the ‘Weight Loss’ section and exploring the site. Don't try all kinds of fad diets and slimming pills because they don't work in the long run and can make you sick. This is one time when you need to be patient.
