Our expert says:
Your present BMI = 23 which is close to ideal for an adult woman. Generally speaking you could try for a BMI of 22, for which you would need to weigh 53 kg. You can 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), and increase your exercise. If you don't like gyms, go for brisk walks for 30 min a day increasing how fast and far you walk as you get fitter. If you are too busy, buy a skipping rope and skip for 30 min a day when you get the chance. The weightloss and the cardio exercise should firm up your hips and tummy. If after 2-3 months of this regimen you are still bothered by your hips and tummy, then you may need to do targeted exercises like sit-ups and thigh rolls. Ask Fitness Doc for such targeted exercises that you can do at home.
