I disagree with the Tom Gray's answer. Don't follow the meal plan. Everybody is different, and have different needs. You have to build a meal plan that can help you with your need.

As mentioned in yisrael's answer and Aequitas' comment, you're gonna need to track your calorie intake.

I don't believe that you'll find better research on the subject currently. Here's why: Until very recently, there was such a strong taboo in the medical community against acknowledging hormonal impacts (other than thyroid hormone deficit or overproduction) on basal metabolic rate (BMR) that nobody could get studies funded on it. People like me with ...

Since I cannot comment on the answer above, here are my remarks: It won't be particularly helpful for weight loss, and it won't be particularly harmful for your body on the long term. Yet it will be harmful for your teeth. So it's not a case of "there won't be any negative longterm effects", because there will be, for your teeth.

In order to increase muscle mass, your body must be forced to adapt. A state of balance is called homeostasis. The essence for inducing a strength and/or hypertrophy increase requires disrupting homeostasis.

Let's look at the two most prominent nutrients found in lemons that could play a role. These are vitamin C, and citric acid. Lemons are rich in vitamin C. One fruit will deliver from 50% to 75% of the daily recommended amount, depending on the size of the lemon. That's nice, because it is an essential nutrient; humans can't synthesize it in their bodies. ...

E.g. exercising hard for a few days ...

Well you didn't talk about your diet, which is the largest contributing factor to your body fat.

My tip is... see a doctor. And if you did and they didn't really find anything, consider a second opinion. Really, there are so many possible causes of this that just giving you some tips is unlikely to solve it.
