Our expert says:
Although I am not enthusiastic about the Dr Cohen diet, it is wonderful that you lost those 11 kg. If you are now doing a great deal of exercise (I presume that is what you are referring to with the 'boot camp'?) then it is possible that the 3 kg gain is due to muscle tissue that actually weighs more than fat tissue. Have you been keeping tabs on your measurements? If you are losing cm then this would indicate a loss of fat even if the scale does not change or shows an increase of 3 kg. Also check your energy intake. Even when eating a healthy diet, you may be ingesting more than 6300 kJ/day? Be careful not to eat too much fat as this is very high in kJ.
Keep up the good work with the exercise
