Our expert says:
You do not specify what type of chronic medication you are using (e.g. cortisone, etc), which could cause overweight. Because you take chronic medication, I would recommend that you either try the diet on this Website (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), or better still, consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian will work out a diet for you that takes your chronic condition and the medication into account.
