Our expert says:
Your present BMI = 21,3 which is ideal for your height, so you do not need to worry about losing or gaining weight. The reason why you feel dizzy and tired is that your diet does not contain sufficient carbohydrates with a low glycaemic index (GI). Low GI foods and carbs ensure that your blood sugar levels stay steady and don't drop to such low levels that feel as if you are going to faint. You may also suffer from hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar), so what you need is a low GI diet. Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'The right approach' and read the articles on the GI. Also click on ‘Food as Medicine' on the Diet Site and then on ‘Type 2 diabetes'. Select low GI carbs and other low GI foods (e.g. fat-free yoghurt or cottage cheese or tuna canned in brine) to ensure that each meal is low GI. Eating a low GI diet should help you to feel better.
