Our expert says:
I am glad to hear that you have stopped drinking large quantities of alcohol. However, I must say that I am also rather puzzled that you are not losing weight. I would recommend that you have a medical checkup just to make sure that you do not have an underlying problem such as liver damage or kidney damage, which may or may not be related to alcohol intake and which can cause water retention and oedema (you would weigh more even if your body contains less fat because of the water). Let's first see what is going on with your health and what the dr discovers and then we can make changes to your food intake.
