Our expert says:
Seeing that your present BMI = 21,3, which is slightly below your ideal of 22, you are certainly not overweight and I think you need to increase the amount of carbs and milk you are ingesting. Your body is telling you that it needs more carbs and if you eat unprocessed carbs like an extra slice of wholewheat bread and jam at breakfast and have Provita at each between meal snack, you won't gain weight. You are not getting enough milk, use the low-fat, or skim varieties, so that you can push up your calcium intake. If you don't have enough calcium you will feel tired because calcium is not only essential for strong bones and teeth, but for the nervous system to function properly. So boost your carb intake (also consider using Energade before, during and after exercise - dilute it a bit if you find it is too filling) and ensure that you have more calcium in your diet (3 cups of milk or yoghurt a day).
