Our expert says:
Cortisone treatments esp direct injections can affect weight, both via water retention and metabolic changes. You need to be pragmatic at this stage. Obviously getting your ankle to heal is your first priority because I presume that you can't exercise properly because of the injury. Concentrate on completing the treatment you need (this may include having physio and doing special exercises). In the meanwhile, the use of the Weigh-Less regimen will help you not to gain too much weight and to get used to the discipline of eating the correct foods and portion sizes. Once the effect of the cortisone wears off you should be able to lose those 6 kg successfully, esp if you can by then also do some exercise.
Hang in there
