I stopped smoking ten months ago and I have gained one stone. I know I am eating more than I used to but suddenly dieting seems to be very hard to stick to. I've always managed to lose weight very quickly but suddenly I am constantly starving and have noted on several occasions that I feel drained and lack energy. Today I ended up eating more just because my body felt weak and tired and needed the energy. I am 53 and female and I am also going through the menopause. However, I hate being overweight and I am now the heaviest I have ever been in my life by a whole stone. Please help!
