Hi all I am in need of advice. I have been told to lose 4 stone by my GP. I currently weigh in at 16 stone. Normally I would pull on my training shoes and hit the road, but the problem is I am disabled now, so running and swimming is out. I have tried dieting but it is slow work, I am 55 now and with the metabolisim of a sloth. I have lost a stone already ( sponsered for lots of dosh a pound for Help for Heroes ) but it has really slowed down. Any suggestions ?
