Our expert says:
The diet you describe is acceptable provided you use only low-fat sources of protein (e.g. fat-free milk, yoghurt, cottage cheese, very lean meat esp chicken breast without the skin, venison and ostrich, white meat fish, only 4 eggs per week and pork with all the visible fat cut off). The reason why I am not in favour of the usual high-protein diets (e.g. the grapefruit diet) is that they tell people that they can eat a much meat as they like and have eggs every day. The fact that you are still going to eat 50% carbs with a high fibre content is also positive. To lose weight you must just ensure that this diet you are going to use does not provide more than 6300 kJ per day. The fact that you are going to increase your training will also promote weight loss - concentrate on aerobic exercises to burn more energy.
