Our expert says:
Because your present BMI = 32,7, which is in the obese range, you will lose weight on your proposed diet even if it only contains 3800 kJ per day. However weight loss is often hampered by an energy intake that is too low because the body shuts down its weight loss systems in the face of perceived starvation. Let's see how you progress on 3800 kJ per day and if your weight loss slows down you can consider increasing your energy intake to 5500 kJ per day by adding more fat-free yoghurt and a serving of high-fibre carbohydrate to ensure regularity. Your suggested diet may be deficient in nutrients so do take a complete vitamin and mineral supplement like Centrum or Supradyn Forte every second day to prevent deficiencies.
Keep up the good work with the exercise.
