Our expert says:
Do you need a general eating plan or a weight reduction diet or a diet for building muscles? For weight reduction you can 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). This type of diet can also be used if you don't need to lose weight as it is balanced - just increase the portions of the permitted foods. For tips on diets to build muscles click on 'Fitness' at the top of this page and then on 'Nutrition' and read the articles on 'Diets for Sportsmen and women' esp the ones on carbohydrates. You can select the less expensive foods in each one of these diets to ensure that you do not exceed your budget.
Keep up the good work with the exercise
