Our expert says:
Research has shown that people who 'nibble' at 6 small, low-fat meals a day, tend to lose more weight than people who 'gorge' on 3 larger meals a day. If you however, find that using 6 small meals a day does not work for you then by all means, switch to 3 balanced meals a day. You can try 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 increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life). I have not yet checked out the Fat Loss for Idiots diet, but you can judge the diet for yourself: a) if the diet contains all the food groups b) if it is not too low in energy. If you need to cut out whole food groups (esp carbohydrates) or if the diet is very low in energy then it is not sensible and well balanced. The idea is to find a regimen that works for you.
Good luck with the diet you choose
