Our expert says:
Stress and depression can cause weight gain, so if you are suffering from these conditions (which would not be surprising in view of the divorce, the financial problems and the discomfort you suffer from the op), then I would suggest that you consult a clinical psychologist (they are listed in the Yellow Pages under 'Psychologists' or you can ask your gp to refer you)to help you to combat the potential depression or anxiety that you may have. To lose weight need to basically change your lifestyle. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss' , ‘The right approach' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life).
