Dear Reader
It is possible that you are suffering from insulin resistance and that this is hampering weight loss. To lose weight you need to basically change your lifestyle. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss' , ‘The right approach' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life). It may be a good idea to have a medical checkup and to ask the dr to monitor your blood glucose and insulin levels, your thyroid function and your levels of sex hormones as an imbalance of any of these could be responsible for your problems.
