Our expert says:
Stop right there. Contact either Weight Watchers or Weighless (both have excellent slimming programmes that achieve great success) and discuss this problem with them. You may find that eating fruit instead of vegetables is a good option and if you don't eat fish then you can eat lean meat, eggs or fat-free cottage cheese instead. Don't let yourself me put off my the remarks of a person who does not know anything about nutrition. She probably got a kick out of putting you down - some friend. You do what you want to do to lose weight in a sensible way. You will find that the diets used by Weighless and Weight Watchers will also help to lower your cholesterol and as you lose weight your bp will come down. I would also like to suggest that you consider doing some form of exercise together with the dieting as research has shown that exercise can be a powerful aid to slimming. You could start off by walking briskly every day slowly increasing the distance and pace at which you walk as you start losing weight. Walk for Life are an excellent option because they monitor your progress, give you moral support and also ensure that you are safe when you go walking.
Holding thumbs that you put this episode behind you, join one of the organisations and start losing weight.
I believe in your success
