Our expert says:
It is possible that the more healthy diet you use, is still not sufficiently energy-reduced to really promote weight loss. I can only suggest that you click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of a low-fat, high-fibre diet and compare it with what you are eating and make the necessary changes. If after a month you are still not losing weight then I would recommend that you have a medical checkup and ask the dr to test your thyroid, insulin and female hormones to see if there are any imbalances which could be preventing weight loss. If you should suffer from insulin resistance then you need to 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), so that he/she can work out the correct diet for you which will help with the insulin resistance and promote weight loss.
