Dear Chubby
Your present BMI = 33,1 which is in the obese range. See the example of an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet’ and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet) on this Website as a guideline for losing weight. You should start losing weight provided you decrease your total energy intake and your fat intake. Go easy on the nuts because although they are excellent foods they have a very high fat and energy content (the recommended portion is not more than 30 g per day). When you gym concentrate on doing aerobic or cardio exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, rowing, spinning), because this type of exercise stimulates your metabolism and burns more energy than working with weights. Try to do at least 30 min a day or 60 min every second day.
Good luck with your regimen
