Our expert says:
To lose weight you need to do 2 things: a) Reduce your energy intake by eating less in total and also cutting down drastically on fat intake, b) Increase your energy output by doing up to 60 min of cardio exercise every day. The diet you describe will certainly make your lose weight in the vegetable and fruit phase, and also when you add low-fat milk/yoghurt and moderate portions of high-fibre cereals. Just be careful not to end up eating more as the weeks go by and you add more foods. Also do think of including daily exercise in your regimen if you need to lose 14 kg. If you reduce your energy intake to 6300 kJ (1500 kcal) per day and do exercise, you should be able to lose between 0,5 and 1 kg of weight a week, thus 16 kg in 4 months - an attainable goal.
