Our expert says:
Seeing that your BMI = 25,4, you can try losing some weight. 56 kg would give you your ideal BMI of 22. Your energy intake may be higher than required for weight loss or you may be eating too little food to produce weight loss (the body switches off its weight loss systems when it perceives that it is being starved) or you may be able to promote additional weight loss by doing some form of exercise every day. If you continue with this diet and increase your exercise to 30 min a day (additional dancing or going for brisk walks) and you are still not losing any weight after 2 weeks, then I would suggest that you have a medical chekup to see if you have a hormone imbalance (female hormones, thyroid, insulin). If this should be the case, then the dr will either prescribe hormonal treatment or you may have to use a diet with a low glycaemic index (GI). Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'The right approach' and read the articles on the GI.
