Dear K
The diet you describe will probably produce weightloss, but it is not well balanced because it omits fruit and wholegrains. In addition it is dangerous to drink 3,5 litres of liquid a day (3 L of water plus the drinking yoghurt and the 120 ml of milk). Excessive liquid intake can cause water intoxication which can have negative effects due to electrolyte imbalances, which have proved fatal in some cases. Please reduce your total liquid intake down 2,5 L per day.
I would recommend that you consult a registered 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), to help you with an individual slimming diet prescription which will be more balanced.
