Our expert says:
Your current BMI = 27,7 which is in the overweight range so it would be good to lose some weight. The diet you describe is not balanced and may ironically contain too much energy for you to lose weight - liquid sources of sugar like the fruit juice and the power caffeine drink (which contains nearly 500 cal or 2100 kJ which equates to 33,3% of your daily energy intake when slimming) are probably hampering your weight loss. Then there is the power play product which may or may not contain extra energy. Your diet is also lacking calcium, dietary fibre, omega-3 fatty acids and other protective nutrients. I would recommend that you try eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and reducing your intake of the power drinks. By all means drink water when exercising and have a high-fibre carbohydrate snack before or after to replenish your glycogen stores, but do choose less energy-rich products.
Keep up the good work with the exercise.
