I'm doing this on my own after reading a lot of material. I have my GP aware.
the way to lose your weight is-
output must be more than input
that is the whole secret
what you spend in exercise must be more than what you eat
that is, the calories spent in exercise must be more than the calories you eat
so effort has to be there both ways, both increasing calorie output and decreasing calorie input
when this difference is large, there is rapid weight loss and when small, slow weight loss
Yes I understand this... it still doesn't seem to add up though!
now the crux is, it is easier to decrease calorie input than increasing calorie output as a whole
so what this finally means is, that you got to cut down more on your diet and at the same time try to increase your exercise to some extent
cutting down on food can be dangerous though as it can leave you malnutritioned
that is why I mentioned about a nutritionist or a trainer
I can't do much more exercising than I do already so cutting down on food seems to be the only thing I can do.
in fact your gym trainer will usually be able to give you good directions
yes thats right, it is not easy to increase calorie output beyond a point
but of course you must try
but main thing is to make more changes in your diet
now do not try to do this on your own
it is best to take professional help for this
consult a nutritionist or your gym trainer should also be able to guide you
It's not easy to access professional help in the UK!
you need a proper diet to follow along with an exercise schedule
i understand, but it is best to go for such help
i think your gym trainer should be available
Ok, I'll speak to my GP and get a referral
go for a personal trainer for some time at least
and of course it is best if your GP gives a referral
diet must be balanced, simply cutting down on food is not the answer
a nutritionist will be able to give you a low calorie diet suitable for you and personalized for you
with this you will find it much more easier to attain your weight goals
besides improving your overall health
Hope this shows you the way forward - wish you good health and a quick recovery.
