Dear Jessie 2
Your present BMI = 27,2 which is above the upper level of the normal range (18-25), so you could lose some weight. If you reduce your weight to 60 kg your BMI would be 24 and nicely within the normal range. Check if the shakes you are using do not contain more energy than you require, namely 500 cal or 2100 kJ per meal because this could be hampering your weight loss. Generally speaking it is better to use normal foods for your slimming programme. You can try 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) to see if this does not help you to start losing weight. Keep up the exercise as this does promote weight loss - it would be excellent if you could do 30 min a day.
