Dear Is this Enough?
The diet you describe is very low in energy and can lead to deficiencies, which is not desirable. It would be better to eat a balanced, low-fat diet that includes normal foods from all the food groups. You can try using 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) instead because the diet you describe is too minimalistic. It is also important to increase your energy output by doing regular daily exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) for at least 30 or more minutes a day.
You may lose weight at a slower rate with the balanced diet, but you will feel much better and be healthier on it than if you starve yourself.
