I would love to assist you, BUT there is no way that I can work out the exact energy content of the various diets Readers describe to me every day. Answering all the questions already takes hours every day, so I cannot provide this kind of service in addition. I can look at your diet and estimate that your diet should promote weightloss because it is low in fat and this will immediately lower you energy intake. If you need to have the exact energy content worked out please consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian will be able to advise if you need to reduce your energy intake even further. The question of how many kJ you burn with your exercise is also not simple because let's say your bike/treadmill gives you a reading of 500 kJ per hour, then there is still the added benefit of an increased basic metabolic rate that occurs when you exercise. This effect can last for up to 24 hours and will use up additional kJ.
I would recommend that you try the diet and the exercise and monitor your weight and dimensions once a week and you will see that you are losing kg and cm.
