Our expert says:
I hate to pass the buck on this, but for such a specific diet question, you really are better off seeing a dietician. The whole concept of counting calories is doomed anyway, because your body is smarter than that and will change your energy use in order to adjust for calorie intake that is too low or too high.
So I suspect that you are falling prey to the numbers game and becoming too pre-occupied with those numbers, which is, in the long run, not conducive to sustained weight loss. My advice is that you see a dietician and get a sensible eating plan.
With regards to the exercise, my advice is to check out the Fitness apge of this site, click on "Programmes" and then choose one of those. It's not a huge problem that you're not at the gym - you can do pretty much most of it from home, and outdoors. The important thing is doing it. THe programmes you'll find at the site I directed you have the necessary components. My advice is to start on a walk/jog programme and build it up. Always remember to focus on fitness first, and the numbers second. If you get fitter, the rest will take care of itself.
