Ask Dr. Denise Lamothe Q&A's
Name: Jane

H I Denise I am 46 quit smoking 2 years ago and just now starting to miss some periods. I have put on 30 pounds and having terrible bloating. Weight gain not due to thyroid or over eating... Docs say just mid life. The bloating is ruining my life - would a nutritionist help? Docs just shrug shoulders and say some people just bloat up???? Girlfriend I am at wits end with this any advice... Use to weigh 102-105 now between 136-146 ..146-148 On bloat days which are 27 days out of a 3 day month

Weight iossues are the most frustrating!!!! It is important to consider the whole picture. I urge you to see a nutritionist, exercise, eat the best you can, stop beating yourself up and definately take advantage of my blog for weekly tips ( ) There is also ifo on my Facebook page a,d my website -- all free and all helpful. Additionally, I strongly suggest you read The T%aming of the Chew. It pulls it all together. Best wishes....and don't quit!! warmest wishes,

Be well,
