Our expert says:
Stress may activate the adrenal gland to produce corticosteroids which can influence weigh gain, but I am wondering if you did not gain that weight because you imperceptibly started eating more than normal? Another factor that is related to stress, is depression which can in turn result in weight gain. If your previous diet worked well then go back to it. It may also be a good idea to have a medical checkup just to make sure that you don't have an underlying problem (hormonal imbalances, etc). Start doing regular exercise every day for 30 min and your weight will decrease again.
