Briefly News spoke to a knowledgeable dietician, Dietician Palesa, who shared that losing weight is hard but doable when following a healthy, sustainable lifestyle.

"I believe the Banting diet is not a long-term solution to weight loss due to numerous reasons. To name a few, according to what’s popularly known, it consists of high consumption of fat.
"As a dietician, I do not recommend anyone to eat high fatty foods as this may cause numerous health complications such as heart problems, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol etc."

Palesa rather advises people to opt for a sustainable lifestyle change, where they consider eating healthy and nutritious foods high in fibre, omega 3&6 fatty acids, lean protein, drinking enough water and regular physical activity.

"The main goal must always be optimum health and wellness and this can be achieved by reducing overall fat intake sugar and salt, while limiting alcohol."
