Our expert says:
The diet you describe will certainly cause weightloss and may work for you if you are gluten intolerant. However, I am worried about the fact that you are also hypoglycaemic. You may need to add low-GI bread and/or pasta (made with Durum wheat) or brown rice or sweet potatoes or corn on the cob(also high in dietary fibre) to this diet to provide some low-GI carbohydrates so that you don't develop hypoglycaemic episodes and feel faint with lack of fuel for your physical activities. I trust that you are being treated with thyroid hormone replacement therapy (Eltroxin or a similar medication) by your doctor. I would also add an additional serving of fat-free yoghurt or cottage cheese to the diet to ensure that your calcium intake does equal 1200 mg per day and because calcium-rich, low-fat dairy foods have been found to promote weightloss. I know that you have a very long day and probably get home exhausted, but do try to do at least 10-30 minutes of aerobic exercise every day (this could entail brisk walking or skipping or doing a home workout or cycling). It should be feasible to lose 4 kg per month or 1 kg per week.
