Our expert says:
It is not necessary to join a weight reducing organisation, a gym or to spend lots of money on diet pills and potions. As you say, if you eat an energy reduced diet and do 30 min of aerobic exercise 5 days a week, then you will lose weight. Your present BMI of 43,2 is very high, so it would be excellent if you could lose some weight. As regards your diet, you can also compare it to the slimming diet on this Website which is a balanced, 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). Split the 3 suggested meals into 5 or 6 smaller ones. Aerobic exercise that you can do at home includes brisk walking, swimming, cycling and when you get fitter also skipping. Start gradually and increase how long and intensively you exercise until you are doing at least 30 min a day.
