Our expert says:
To lose weight your daughter needs to basically change her lifestyle. She should reduce her energy intake by 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), and increase her energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) for at least 30 min a day in addition to her walks to the station. Please don't fall into the trap of buying all kinds of slimming pills and potions to stimulate her metabolism, they either don’t work or a dangerous. While you are on the ‘Weight loss’ site, read about every aspect of slimming (the dangers of diet pills, slimming aids, psychological aspects of slimming, etc) by surfing on this site.
