Our expert says:
If you are not losing weight on this low-energy diet and the regular exercise then it may be a good idea to have a medical checkup. Ask your dr to test your thyroid, insulin and female hormone levels to see if you suffer from an underactive thyroid, insulin resistance or polycystic ovarian syndrome. It would also be advisable to see a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), so that the dietitian can work out a balanced weight reduction diet for you.
