Our expert says:
Glad that you now understand the difference between kJ and calories. Basically an adult woman who wants to lose weight would have to reduce her energy intake to between 6 300 kJ and 7150 kJ a day. You can certainly try the slimming diet on this Website which is based on reducing fat intake (37 kJ per gram) and increasing intake of high-fibre foods (17 kJ per gram - quite a difference). If possible you should combine such a diet with regular exercise like going for a brisk 30 min walk a day or joining a good gym if possible. If you do the latter, ask the instructor to work out a routine that concentrates on aerobic exercises like cycling, rowing, jogging and skipping.
