Our expert says:
Because you suffer from low blood sugar and have been picking up weight, I would recommend that you do consult registered dietitian, because the correct diet is one of the most important factors in treatment. 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 will take your low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia), and other conditions such as overweight, into account when working out a diet for you, which will be based on foods with a low-fat, low glycaemic index (GI). Also click on 'Diet & Nutrition' and 'Weight loss' and 'The Glycaemic Index' and read the articles on the GI.
The fact that you are doing such excellent exercise is wonderful and this will also help you to lose fat (as shown by the reduction in cm), so keep up the good work.
