I have been overweight for 2years now, i had a baby and put on 20kg and i have been struggling to loose it and then a couple of weeks back i went to do a full blood count test and they found that i am healthy(thank God). but still i need tips to lose weight in a healthy but fast way because i tend to get discouraged very easily.

Dear Mpume
Glad to hear that you are in good health. 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 increasing 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 (Diet pills, slimming aids, psychological aspects, etc) by surfing on this site.
