Our expert says:
If you eat a low-fat diet which includes carbohydrates with a low glycaemic index (GI) and do intensive exercise you should lose weight. The high protein content of this diet should also build muscle (be careful not to ingest too much protein and creatine as this can damage the kidneys and lead to water retention, etc). If you find that you get very tired, esp during and after exercise sessions, then you need to use a carbohydrate-rich energy drink (Powerade, Energade, Lucozade, etc - experiment which energy drink agrees best with you) before, during and immediately after exercise to provide the energy you need to support the exercise you are doing. This should also prevent you feeling starved or hungry.
Good luck with the training.
