Can some one please help me out and suggest some things I could do? I am so disgusted with my weight gain.
I am sorry to hear about your issue but want to offer some advice, i am no expert but i am relatively healthy but always looking to improve. With weight loss i would always advise to take a look at your daily calorie intake, It is simple enough that if you maintain your calorie intake ie 2000 for a typical women, you will not gain weight via fat, do not be confused about fat you do need fats such an mono fats, stay clear of trans fats these are not good for you. try to have a balanced diet that consists of your main 3 Macros, carbs, Proteins and Fats.
Also try some moderate cardio exercise such as brisk walking 30 minutes per day. I personally do not believe the myth about not eating before bed, this is rubbish, you can eat when you like, make sure you eat 4-6 small meals a day to keep you metabolism frequent, also drink PLENTY of water and if possible green tea (its great stuff) 3-4 cups per day ideally. Steer clear of all SODA's AND FAST FOOD ETC. Eat whole wheat products where possible.
Give this 4 weeks and you will see a noticeable difference try it! you have nothing to lose but fat!
