Weight gain after hysteractomy

I had a hysteractemy (uterus and ovaries were removed) a year ago, and have since gained 5 kgs. Before the op, I had no problem with my weight. Even though I am now careful with what I eat, the weight refuses to come off. What can I do?

Dear Overweight
Some women tend to gain weight, while others lose weight after a hysterectomy. To lose weight you need to basically change your lifestyle. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life). With this combination you should lose those 5 kg in 5 weeks.
