Our expert says:
It is unfortunate that some women tend to gain weight when they enter the menopause, while others tend to lose weight. If you have the tendency to weight gain, then I can only suggest that you discuss this problem with your gynaecologist because in some cases, hormone replacement therapy may be indicated, but this is a decision you and your gynae will have to make together. Also try reducing your alcohol intake by half so that you either only drink one whisky per evening or if you have two only have them 3 times a week. A slight increase in the intensity of your exercise may also be beneficial.
I do hope that you can reverse your weight gain.
