If you're overweight and trying to work towards a healthier weight, please recognize that being overweight is a chronic condition that requires a doctor's supervision. Since obesity is closely related to Type 2 Diabetes, seek the help of your local diabetes clinic where you can get advice from a diabetic nurse and a dietitian. Be aware that many health care professionals are wedded to the (low fat) diet-heart hypothesis.  See Weight Loss.
