Dear Just Wondering
I am thrilled to hear that you have already lost 1/3 of the weight you need to lose. It is difficult to decide if the change in diet or possible menopause could be causing your lack of menstruation. Generally speaking, a low-GI diet does not interfere with menstruation. Please ask you gp or gynae to check why you are not menstruating. To stimulate you metabolism and get weightloss going again, I would recommend that you start doing some form of exercise (skipping, jogging, brisk walking, rowing, cycling, swimming in a heated pool, etc) for 30 min a day. Start slowly and gradually work up to doing 30 min a day and increasing how much you exercise as you get fitter and lose more weight.
