Good for you that you have joined Weighless and already lost that kg! At this stage, I would not recommend that you have extra servings of anything - stick to the diet for 6 weeks and let's see how you do. The role of exercise is very complex and it can contribute to weight loss because of the following factors: a) you do burn kilojoules, but the effect is greater than the kJ you burn! b) it increases your basic metabolic rate for up to 24 hours after you have exercised, so that you go on burning kJs c) research has shown that people who exercise are more inclined to stick to their diets than those who don't exercise d) it firms you up and start building muscle tissue, e) it makes you feel more positive and counteracts depression which can hamper weight loss - the list goes on and on. So start that jogging and keep it up.
Thank you for your kind words about this service, it makes it all worthwhile.
