Our expert says:
Such rapid weight gain when you are not eating an unbalanced diet rich in fats and sugars and are doing regular exercise points towards an underlying physical or psychological problem. Please have a medical examination and tell the dr about your pronounced weight gain (your present BMI= 28, whereas it was 25 last summer) and ask him/her to check your thyroid, insulin and female hormones to determine if you suffer from a hormone imbalance such as underactive thyroid, insulin resistance or polycystic ovary syndrome. From a psychological point of view depression can cause pronounced weightloss or weight gain depending on the individual. If this may apply, then consult a clinical psychologist who will help you to combat this condition. Once we have a diagnosis we can see what dietary and lifestyle changes are necessary.
Hope you can pinpoint what is causing your rapid weight gain.
