Our expert says:
Stopping smoking can affect weight loss for a time, but this usually improves after a few months. I cannot condone either the diet or the tablets you are using as they are potentially harmful. You may also be pregnant? if you missed your period, so have this checked out too. Otherwise your metabolism may have changed and you may have developed insulin resistance. I would advise you to have a medical checkup just to eliminate any underlying problems. If you are given a clean bill of health, then try combining a low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'Slimming Diet' for a copy) which you can combine with the exercise. Also give your body time to adjust to all these changes - be patient.
Keep up the good work with stopping smoking and doing exercise.
