Our expert says:
I must say that it is rather strange that you just keep gaining weight. I would recommend that you consult an Endocrinologist (a dr who specialises in hormone like the thyroid, insulin, etc - ask your gp to refer you) so that you can find out why you are gaining weight all the time despite doing exercise and cutting out carbs (this is actually not a good idea, as it is better to cut down on fats instead, but you will have reduced your energy intake). It is possible that you suffer from insulin resistance or poly cystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) which will require treatment with medications and a change in diet. For the latter please consult a clinical dietitian is you should have insulin resistance or PCOS. Visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area. Keep up the exercise as this will at least keep you fit and help to lower blood sugar and insulin levels if you should have insulin resistance.
Holding thumbs that you find out what is causing this pronounced weight gain.
