Our expert says:
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 '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 energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life). While you are on the ‘Weight loss’ site, read about every aspect of slimming (the dangers of diet pills, slimming aids, psychological aspects of slimming, etc) by surfing on this site. If you lack the willpower to stick to a diet and exercise then you could do a Search on the Internet for Innertalk who sell motivational tapes and CDs which may help you. Research has shown that dieters who also exercise feel more positive about their diets and tend to stick to the regimen more closely, so do try adding at least 30 min of aerobic exercise a day to your regimen. Try to walk for 30 min every day to stimulate your metabolism, start slowly and then increase how fast and far you walk.
