The weight you have gained is because of fluid retention. Oestrogen, as well as being a sex hormone, is also a steroid that like some other steroids causes your body to retain sodium along with accompanying water. - Reducing salt/sodium intake reduces fluid retention, so if you avoid eating salt and salty food you will easily lose weight by excreting some of the excess sodium and water in your urine.
Lose weight and improve your health in many ways without drugs or expense by eating less salt! Go on! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
