Dear Atlegang
It is an unfortunate fact that individuals who have been very active physically often gain weight when they stop doing their sport or gym, etc. This is due to a number of factors: 1) You may be eating the same amount of food as when you were physically more active, and the excess energy is being converted into fat, 2) Physical exercise tends to stimulate the metabolism, which is not missing in your life, so that your basic metabolic rate may be lower, which would also cause weight gain. To lose weight you need to basically change your lifestyle. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet’ and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increase your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) for 30 or more minutes a day. If you can't play your sport, at least buy a skipping rope and skip for 30 min a day to get back into the exercise mode.

There is a thing called " execize"  that helps a lot. Together with healthy balanced diet
