Wishing you all the best for 2009. Diane does work well for acne and some patients do not gain weight when using these female hormone tablets. However if you find that you are gaining weight then I would suggest that you do 2 things: a) Cut down on your intake of dietary fat and empty energy (sugar-sweetened cold drinks, cakes, chocolates, sweets, etc) and b) do a form of exercise that you enjoy. It is not necessary to work out in gym you can go for walks, play sport, cycle, swim or skip - all these exercises promote weightloss.
