Our expert says:
When you say "it's been starting to look like I'm gaining weight", do you mean that your clothes don't fit properly or that your tummy feels bloated, or what?? It is possible that you suffer from water retention which can cause swelling of the legs or hands, etc. Water retention is often caused by hormone fluctuations and/or a high salt diet. Try reducing your salt intake and have a total of 2,5 litres of liquid a day - not more, otherwise you may cause electrolyte imbalances and more water retention. More is not always good.
