Firstly let me congratulate you on losing 15 kg - that is a wonderful achievement. I also admire your sensible approach to losing weight. Now that you have reached the normal weight range with a BMI of 24,8, your weight loss will slow down. I agree that it would be good to try and reduce to 65 kg which would give you a BMI of 23 (the normal range for BMI values is 18-25). I think what you need to do is to be patient and continue with your low-fat, high-fibre diet and the exercise. Give your body a chance to adjust to the massive weight loss. I also think you may need to add a few additional foods to your diet (e.g. some fat-free milk, yoghurt and cottage cheese to prevent calcium deficiency) and to eat a balanced low-fat meal at night. Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'Slimming Diet' and compare this diet with what you are eating and make the necessary changes. It is ironic that the human body often switches off its weight loss mechanisms in the face of perceived 'starvation', so it is often better to eat slightly more of the permitted low-fat foods than to use too minimalistic a diet.
