A:For your son: The slower you lose the weight, the surer you can be that it will stay off for good. A yardstick to go by - is approximately 2-3 kilos reduction, a month A good way to lose weight is to combine calorie-reduction with spending calories as much as you can. That means, if your intake is less than your expenditure, you are bound to lose weight. To achieve the first, you have to eat a balanced, nutritious meal, which our dietician will be able to help you with. It may not be a good idea to miss any meal as that slows the metabolism down and hinders weight loss. To aid that process, you may like to add on any exercise you can manage to get.
