Our expert says:
Is the low-GI diet also low in fat? if not, then it could be that you have not actually reduced your energy intake. On the other hand you may be losing fat mass, but not weight because your are building muscle tissue which ironically weighs more than fat tissue (your cm loss indicates that this is so). So ensure that your diet is also low-fat and that you have actually reduced your energy intake by at least 2100 kJ (500 cal) a day and keep up the exercise as this will produce weightloss. Keep on taking your dimensions which will show you that you are losing fat. You may find that you will lose more mass if you concentrate on doing cardio exercise as this burns more energy than working with weights.
