Our expert says:
First finish your matric exams because this is more important that stressing about weight! Once you have completed the exams which I hope will be successful, then I would suggest you reduce your energy intake by 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), and increase your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life). This diet can be used by the whole family including your Dad. The exercise is vital esp in a young person because you will find that it makes you stick to your diet, improves your mood and helps with the weight loss.
Good luck with the matric
