Our expert says:
I am personally not in favour of high-protein diets because despite the fact that they cause rapid weightloss, patients tend to regain all the weight they lose the moment they stop eating only proteins as you yourself have just demonstrated. I would persevere with the low-GI diet, but add at least 30 or more minutes of aerobic exercise to my regimen (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life). On this type of regimen you should lose between 0,5 and 1 kg per week - slow, but steady. In view of your insulin resistance you will also need to continue to eat a low-GI diet once you have lost the required weight.
