Our expert says:
I think exercise wise, you're doing OK for a start. Over time, you'll need to increase the duration of the run, and the frequency. I'd be aiming for 4 to 5 times a week, not 2 or 3. Also, the intensity is vital, because if you don't exercise hard enough, you don't burn the energy. That's not something you can force, though, so focus on getting fitter, and let that take care of itself. I'd suggest that you should pick a goal other than weight loss - maybe to get yourself fit enough to run 10km or soething like that.
In terms of diet, I'd suggest seeing a dietician. It's vital, because you're trying to lose 5kg when you are not overweight. That's a tough ask, and diet must be perfect. Yours is pretty thin at the moment, and I'm not sure it's sustainable, and so I'd suggest seeing a dietician to make some modifications. I'll be honest - losing 5kg when you are not overweight is tough to do, and so you'll need diet to be perfect.
