A 53-year-old female asked:
Disclaimer

My BMI is 23 but my Waist Hip Ratio is 0.96. I have only managed to lose 7lb after fairly strict dieting for 3 months. I am slim everywhere except a panel of fat at the front. How worried should I be? Would HRT help?

Sounds : like you are doing well, certain locations are the toughest to lose. Cutting simple carbs way down might help. Sometimes fat reduction procedures may be an option for the tougher spots.
