Question from Emms38: I have been 2 years out of treatment. I have put on 8 kilos and can't seem to lose it. I exercise and eat a low fat diet—please help!
Answers - Cyndi Thomson, Ph.D., R.D. First and foremost, I would get some individual counseling from a registered dietician. It may be that you are someone who's not as responsive to a low fat diet as other women in terms of weight loss. In this case, you may need to modify your approach to determine if a different lower carbohydrate plan might work better for you. There is evidence that our genes or genetics can influence our responsiveness or ability to see a benefit from certain diets or even physical activity. Thus, there may be some trial and error in finding the best eating plan for you to achieve your goals.
