Our expert says:
I unfortunately don't agree with the use of a high-protein diet. Click on 'Diet' and 'View old Diet & Food site' and read the article on 'High-protein diets'. I firmly believe that one should rather reduce fat intake (37kJ/g) than increase one's protein intake which automatically increases fat and cholesterol intake. To reduce weight you need to reduce your energy intake and the easiest, healthiest way to do this is to eat a balanced low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Weigh loss' and 'Slimming Diet'). Combine the diet with plenty of aerobic exercise and you will lose weight and keep it off without endangering your health.
