Our expert says:
Most female hormone treatments can either increase or decrease weight and affect appetite. At present your BMI = 25, which is the upper cutoff for the normal weight range (18-25). It would be better if you could weigh 52 kg, so do discuss this problem with the prescribing dr because he/she may be able to adjust the dose, change the medication or suggest another type of contraception. To lose weight, you need to eat a low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'Slimming Diet' for a copy), and combine it with regular exercise (brisk walking, running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming - anything to get active).
