Our expert says:
Very rapid weight gain like this is a sign of a serious underlying problem, such as an insulin or female hormone imbalance or depression. Please have yourself examined by a Endocrinologist (ask your dr or dietitian to refer you) and if you suspect that depression may be playing a role have yourself assessed by a clinical psychologist. Clinical psychologists are listed in the Yellow Pages under 'Psychologists' or you can ask your gp to refer you.
We need to obtain a clinical diagnosis to see what is causing this rapid weight gain before you can receive appropriate treatment. Don't go down the anorexia path - that is the way to total destruction of your health and happiness.
