When does your weight gain become a problem?
When your weight has dropped below a certain threshold, you can become overweight and your health may not be as good.
If you’ve gained weight or you feel like you are becoming overweight, it’s important to talk to your GP about whether your weight loss could be a sign of other health issues.
Your GP can refer you to a specialist, or refer you directly to a dietitian.
You can also talk to a nutritionist, to see if they can advise on a healthier eating plan or how to prevent the weight gain.
A GP can advise you on any treatment options, such as supplements, which might help reduce your weight.

If your weight is still too high, your GP may refer you for a physical examination.
This can help your doctor assess your health condition and assess whether you need to be treated more intensively.
Your health care team may also discuss your weight and diet with you.
If there’s a concern about your weight, the GP or dietitians can advise about any other treatment options that might help.
Some health and diet experts recommend that you take supplements as part of a regular exercise programme to reduce the risk of diabetes.
This will help to reduce weight and improve your overall health.
If a doctor says your weight doesn’t improve, you may want to talk about a lifestyle change.
Some people choose to eat less, and some people choose not to exercise, but this depends on your personal preferences.
Your body needs the right amount of calories, and you need regular exercise to get the right balance.
Exercise may also help to lower your blood pressure.
Your doctor may suggest that you try a low-calorie diet.
A diet low in saturated fat and high in fibre, fruits and vegetables, whole grains and vegetables and a small amount of animal products is ideal for healthy weight loss.
There are also some dietitics who advise people to keep a healthy weight.
The American College of Cardiology recommends that overweight and obese people eat fewer than 100 calories a day, and that the average person needs at least 500 calories a week.
This may mean eating fewer than 2,000 calories a month, depending on how active you are and the amount of exercise you do.
