It is possible to have an underlying medical condition, such as hypothyroidism, that can make it difficult to lose weight or to keep from gaining weight. In order to determine if this is the case, it’s best to go see your doctor. There are tests he/she can perform to determine if there is an underlying medical cause. If there is an underlying cause, your doctor may need to prescribe medication for the cause.
Whether or not you have a medical condition causing your weight gain, it can be helpful to see a registered dietitian to determine how best to be eating for weight loss. He/she can individualize a meal/diet plan for you that meets your specific needs.
