Dear Babym
I think you should discuss your contraceptive programme with the prescribing dr to see if there are any alternatives that do not cause weight gain in your case. To lose weight you need to basically change your lifestyle. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss' , ‘The right approach' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life). Try the high-fibre diet and combine it with exercise and you should start losing those kgs.
