Our expert says:
It is stunning that you have lost 20 cm and 2 kg with the Bootcamp exercises and your low-GI diet. If you are on a low-GI diet this should prevent low blood sugar levels that increase appetite, so it is possible that as you are getting fitter you are exercising more strenuously and that you now require additional energy to fuel your activity. Other factors that can stimulate appetite are stress or medications including over-the-counter meds. Has anything changed in your life lately besides doing to exercise and eating the low-GI diet? If you use low-GI carbs and low-fat protein (both have an energy value of approx. 17 kJ/gram) and continue to cut down on fat (37 kJ/gram) then you will probably be able to eat larger portions of the low-GI foods to ensure that you have sufficient energy to sustain your exercise and not get hungry.
Good luck with what sounds like a super programme.
