Our expert says:
You will lose weight because you have reduced your energy intake and increased your energy output. However if you are doing weight lifting then you must expect that your muscle mass will increase and muscle tissue weighs more than fat tissue, so you may weigh more even if you lose fat. 4 times a week is more than enough if you are doing weight lifting. If you want to just lose weight then you will need to change your exercise to aerobic ones like running, rowing, spinning, cycling, swimming or skipping. I also think your diet may become monotonous, so do check out the low-fat, high-fibre diet in this Website (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).
