Our expert says:
Hormonal treatments can indeed influence both weight gain, inability to lose weight and water retention. However, when people go on a slimming diet and initially lose weight, the human body always tries to regain its balance, so it will slow down weightloss to try and compensate for the loss. So it is important to persevere with your diet and exercise until the body starts losing weight again. The whole process becomes more difficult if you are close to your normal weight already.
Hang in there and try adding some daily exercise to your regimen.
