Our expert says:
Have you worked out your BMI? to check if you are actually overweight? Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and Tools' and work out your BMI. If it is between 18 and 25, then your weight is in the normal range and you will struggle to lose. If your BMI is over 25 then you need to reduce your energy intake by eating a low-fat, high-fibre diet. I don't think your lunch is fattening at all and there is no need to restrict your carbo intake to early in the day. Carbs are NOT what makes us fat, but fat in food does. For the kind of exercise programme you are doing you need carbs as fuel, so that you don't break down lean muscle tissue for energy purposes. Always remember that the fittest and leanest sportsmen are the cyclists who participate in the Tour de France and they eat a practically vegetarian diet with 75% of their energy derived from carbs!
