Did you work out your BMI? See 'Tools' on this Website and check if you are overweight or not. Eating one big meal a day will certainly not do the trick because your body will go into 'starvation' mode for the 24-hour periods between those huge meals. Research has shown that to lose weight you need to reduce your energy intake while still eating a normal, balanced diet, and increase your energy expenditure. Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'Slimming Diet' and you will obtain a copy of a low-fat, high-fibre diet - compare this diet with the various diets you have tried so far and make the necessary adjustments. To increase energy expenditure start doing regular exercise such as running, brisk walking, jogging, rowing, cycling, swimming or skipping. The combination of the diet and exercise should assist you in losing weight.
