Our expert says:
I think that it would be a good idea if you and your hubby could 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). The dietitian will assess his present weight and diet and work out a weight loss diet for your hubby. I would also recommend that hubby has a medical checkup so that the dr can decide if he is allowed to exercise and also what type of exercise he can do (moderate or high-intensity). Once you have a weight loss diet in place and your hubby has received the go-ahead to exercise, you will see that he loses weight. Despite this weight gain, the fact that he has stopped smoking is a great achievement and will benefit his health a great deal.
