DIET
Hi Doc

I've been gaining weight heavily in the last couple of weeks.

Could you maybe help me with some kind of a diet?

Dear Lara
To lose weight you need to decrease your energy intake by eating a low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'Slimming Diet' for a copy) and expend more energy by doing regular exercise (start by walking slowly for 10 minutes a day and gradually increase the distance and time you walk).
Best regards
