Our expert says:
Your present BMI = 25,4 which is just above the upper level of normal. From what you say, it is quite possible that you do have a metabolic or hormonal problem. You are doing most of the things that one would suggest for losing weight (eating a low-GI, low-fat diet and doing regular exercise). Factors such as hormone imbalances (thyroid, insulin and female hormones) can cause weight gain and hamper weightloss. Psychological factors such as depression can also cause massive weight gain or loss depending on the person's individual response. I would recommend that you have a medical checkup to see if you have a hormone imbalance and if you suspect that depression is playing a role, then discuss this with the dr too.
Keep up the good work with the exercise because this stimulates sluggish metabolism if you have a hormonal problem and even helps to counteract depression.
I hope you can pinpoint what is preventing you from losing weight.
