I am not a qualified doctor, personal trainer or nutritionist (at least not yet!) and therefore I strongly recommend that you seek the advice of medical professionals before starting any weight loss or exercise plan. My advice on this blog should be treated as a suggestion, based on my own personal experience of what works for me, rather than from medical training.
