Our expert says:
The diet you describe is just another version of the Atkins high-protein diet. You may experience the problems outlined in my article on the dangers of high-protein diets. If this should occur then it would be advisable to change over to a low-fat, low-glycaemic index (GI) diet. To obtain assistance with starting a low-GI, low-fat diet please 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). Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'The Glycaemic Index' and read the articles on the GI.
