Our expert says:
If you are gaining weight all the time despite eating moderately and doing relatively regular exercise then I would recommend that you have a medical checkup to see if there is not an underlying physical problem such as a hormone imbalance (thyroid, insulin and/or female hormones) or a psychological one (depression which can cause pronounce weight gain). If you are given a clean bill of physical and psychological health then it would be a good idea to see a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), so that the dietitian can assess what and how much you are eating and assist you with a balanced slimming diet. It will also help to do targeted exercises for those problem areas (e.g. thigh rolls), so do ask Fitness Doc on this Website for a set of home exercises that target the buttocks, hips and thighs.
