problem; From my teenage years my main problem is regaining weight after frequent horrible stuggles of loosing weight from about 65Kg to about48- 50 Kg. I have gone through about 5 such episodes. At all these instances I gained weight at a faster rate than loosing causing me much anxiety.

Dinner; same as lunch
Rate of weighr loss; I loose about 1kg in five working days but regain that amount in just 2 days during the week ends when i have some rest such as an afternoon nap and better eating ( not over eating )
My worries; People of my height and physical activity level are having normal meals and are not gaining weight where as I am always scared of food and my life is a constant battle agaist extra fat
What I think the cause of my problem; Multifactorial ie. Genetic predisposition for obesity, ?Low BMI, No regular exercise, Not knowing how much calories I need to eat, Frequent episodes of loosing and gaining weght
