Our expert says:
I must say that I find the fact that you have picked up weight despite eating much less as strange. How a woman's body reacts to hormones or stopping hormone therapy is ver individual and also can vary from pill to pill. You may find that you now gain weight because of not being on any hormones. On the other hand, a gain of 1-2 kg could also be due to water retention. Ask your pharmacist for a mild diuretic and concentrate on eating plenty of potassium-rich foods such as fresh vegetables, fruit and whole grains, low-fat milk and dairy and very lean meat and fish. If you do continue to gain weight without taking any contraceptive pills, I would recommend that you return to your dietitian because she did assist you to lose 10 kg before, so her diet works for you.
