Our expert says:
If you do weigh 65 kg at the moment, then your present BMI = 24,8, which is still just within the normal range (18-25), but if you would like an ideal BMI of 22, then you would need to weigh 57 kg. Your estimate of needing to lose up to 7 kg, is, therefore, accurate if you would like to achieve an ideal BMI of 22. You are probably aware of the fact that your dietary intake is not ideal and that you should preferably be eating at least 3 balanced meals a day which can be primarily lean meat or fish with vegetables and fruits if you don't like carbs. You can use the energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet on this Website as an example. Click on 'Diet & Nutrition' at the top of this page, then on 'Healthy Diets' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet. Reduce your wine intake too as alcohol has rather a high energy content. If you combine this type of diet with your proposed regular exercise then you should start losing and also tighten up slack muscles. Try doing some targeted exercises like sit-ups for your spare tyre as well as the brisk walking.
