Our expert says:
I don't know why everyone who wants to lose weight always cuts out carbs. By all means cut out white bread and change to wholewheat or low-GI bread, but there is no reason to cut out all carbs. To lose weight you need to basically change your lifestyle. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet’ and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increase your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life).
