Dear Liezel
I am sorry to hear that your friend has lost a leg in a car accident. The diet you describe is both low-GI and relatively low in energy, so she should still lose weight despite not being able to exercise. It may help if she discusses her condition with a biokineticist who can design an exercise programme for her which will also help her to feel more in charge of her life again.
Wishing your friend all the best.
