Our expert says:
If you reduce your energy intake down to 1200 kcal per day then you should lose weight. The reason why slimming diets specify the avoidance of certain foods such as fat, sugar and highly refined carbs like cakes, pies, etc, is that these foods are very high in energy and make it difficult to reduce your daily energy intake. Eating a varied diet with a lower energy content will assist weightloss. I must point out once you are used to the portion sizes you need for your diet, that is not necessary to count very single kcal you ingest - this could become obsessive.
Also keep in mind that by doing some form of regular exercise like going for a brisk walk for 30 min a day, you will also be reducing the amount of energy available to your body for fat formation.
