Our expert says:
The diet you describe is reasonable except that you should try to add an additional 2 servings of low-fat milk, yoghurt or cottage cheese to ensure that you ingest 1200 mg of calcium a day. Research has also indicated that slimming diets that include 3 servings of low-fat milk or dairy products a day, promote weightloss more efficiently than diets that avoid milk and dairy.
If your BMI is already normal and equals 22 or less, then it is not a good idea for you to try and lose another 5-6 kg. Let's say your BMI = 22 (the ideal for adult women), then you probably weigh 57,6 kg. If you lose 6 kg you would only weigh 51,6 kg thus having a BMI of 19,7 which already borders on the anorexic range and leaves you without any reserves in case changes in health. By all means eat a balanced diet and do plenty of exercise, but don't force your body to lose weight If your BMI is already 22 or less.
