I am fortunate to have managed to get my BMI under 25 (24.7) by losing 48lb / 22kg / 3st 6lb while ill with severe ME/CFS. (I hope to lose more again).
It took me 2.5 years so I didn't break any records.
I thought I would share some techniques I used to lose the weight as a few people did ask me.
Note that I am not qualified to give medical or health advice. Also there are lots of other ways to lose weight.
I'm not saying that this will work for everyone as people can be in different circumstances to me. Also it probably takes a certain frame of mind to lose weight so I'm not going to tell everyone to lose weight. I was overweight for around a decade before I set my mind to it. (I gradually put up weight over a decade without trying to lose it during that period). Being ill particularly severely ill with this illness is tough.
Anyway here's what I did, for what it is worth. I might add to these 9 points if others occur to me.
