Our expert says:
Hormone imbalances and taking female hormones can have an influence on weight gain or weightloss depending on how the individual woman reacts. You may suffer from insulin resistance, an underactive thyroid or a lack of female hormones. I would suggest that you discuss this problem with your medical dr or gynae so that they can do tests to see if one or more of your hormones are unbalanced. If you do suffer from insulin resistance which is also associated with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) then it is necessary to use a low-fat, low-GI diet prescribed by a dietitian.
I hope you can pinpoint what is preventing you from losing weight.
