Our expert says:
Your present BMI of 26 is above the normal range (18-25), so it would be a good idea to reduce your weight and 8 kg sounds like an excellent goal. Basically you need to reduce your energy intake down to 6300 kJ a day. Your diet sounds fine, except that I think you need to include some unprocessed, unsifted grains and cereals, which are low in energy and won't cause weight gain. Click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss' , ‘The right approach' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of a low-fat, high-fibre diet, compare with what you are eating and make the necessary adjustments. All diets give better results if combined with regular exercise, so start doing 30 min of exercise a day (e.g. brisk walking, cycling, swimming, skipping, etc).
