Our expert says:
I am sorry to hear about your op. I agree that it would be a good idea for you to consult a dietitian (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). The dietitian will be able to assess your present diet and suggest changes so that you start losing weight. Two factors could have caused you to gain that kg: a) Water retention as you mention, and b) Muscle gain because muscle tissue weighs more than fat! Keep up the good work with the exercise, because exercise is still the best metabolic stimulant available.
