From Chinese medicine perspective, you need to find out your body constitution as both phlegm and dampness and qi deficiency can lead to weight gain. The cause of weight gain and diet choices would be quite different so if you pick the right method, you’re off to a good start. (Some people can have multiple body constitutions as well)
