Our expert says:
If you need to lose those 5 kg then you can achieve this by reducing your fat intake (each gram of fat provides 37 kJ whereas carbohydrates and proteins, including plant proteins, provide 16 and 17 kJ per gram). Cheeses generally contain between 42 and about 12 g of fat per 100g, so changing to low-fat or fat-free cottage cheese 4.5 and 1g of fat/100g respectively), and/or Ricotta (7.9g of fat/100g) should reduce your fat and energy intake. Also use fat-free milk and yoghurt and go easy on added oil in cooking and salads. If you combine this reduction in fat intake with an increase of cardio exercises in the gym (cardio exercises burn more energy than working with weights), you should be able to shed those 5 kg. I do not prepare the daily health tip so cannot guarantee that it will be vegetarian.
