Our expert says:
Yes, I do agree that you need to see a dietitian. Your present BMI = 27,3, which is in the overweight category. To get back into the normal range with a BMI of 25 you would need to lose up to 6 kg. Because you have raised triglycerides and increase insulin levels, the dietitian will have to work out an individual diet prescription for you. Visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area, who will assess your case and will work out the correct diet for your condition. I can't refer you directly for obvious reasons.
