Our expert says:
Research has shown that some women do tend to gain weight during the menopause if they take HRT or not. The diet you describe should promote weightloss. You can try adding aerobic exercise to your regimen (for example going for brisk walks, swimming, cycling, skipping) for at least 30 min a day as exercise does help with weightloss and strengthens the skeleton which can help to prevent osteoporosis. If you find that you are still not lose weight with this diet when it is combined with exercise then it may be a good idea to have a medical checkup to see if you have other problems such as low thyroid function and/or insulin resistance. Your BMI = 27,3 which is above the upper level of the normal range. To get back into the normal range (18-25) with a BMI of 24, you would need to weigh 69 kg.
