Our expert says:
If you are struggling to lose weight and do not know how to turn things around, I would like to 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). The dietitian needs to assess your situation and what you are eating because you may well be suffering from insulin resistance and require a low-fat low-GI (glycaemic index) diet to solve your inability to lose weight. Click on 'Diet & Nutrition' and 'Weight loss' and 'The Glycaemic Index' and read the articles on the GI. Also click on ‘Food as Medicine' on the Diet Site and then on ‘Type 2 diabetes’. Keep up the exercise as this does help you with weightloss.
Consult that dietitian ASAP
