Our expert says:
Thank you for your question here on health 24. From reading your story, I think the best think to do will be to contact a registered dietitian to help you with the challenge you are currently facing. You can get to choose any dietitian closer or far from you and arrange a consultation with them. Fortunately, most dietitians do also conduct online consultations so it does not matter where they are. There is no enough space to give a detailed advice on this plaform but also more clarity would be needed so as to give appropriate advise. You can go to www.adsa.org.za to check for a Registered dietitian you can use. However, generally for weight loss it recommended to eat 3 healthy wholesome meals a day and only snack when HUNGRY. Low energy snacks such as cut up vegetables (Cucumber, carrot, tomatoes etc.) with some low fat dip e.g. hummus, cottage cheese make great snacking options, low fat plain youghurts, Fresh fruit, handful of lean (fat free) biltong are also great snacking options.
