Congratulations on losing 42 kg - you are a bright ****star**** - that's nearly a whole person and you have done this by using a sensible diet. Wonderful!!! You are correct that exercise will stimulate your metabolism and promote further weight loss. Now the reason why it is a good idea to have some carbohydrates before doing exercise esp after the overnight fast (i.e. 10 or more hours without food while you are sleeping), is that your blood sugar levels will be very low when you get up and you need fuel for your physical exertion. Try having a small carbohydrate snack from your Weighless choices immediately after rising and then do your exercise. I also think that you will probably function more efficiently at work if you have your All-bran and yoghurt a bit earlier. The idea is to get your blood sugar up to a level where your brain can work at its best and fasting for another 4 hours after exercise may deplete the blood sugar to the extent that you won't function well.
Hope you can work out a programme that increases your blood sugar levels so that you can exercise efficiently and cope at work.
Keep up the good work
