Well, if it makes you feel any better, I have been doing this dance for over 1 year. I was going to a trainer 5 days a week, ran a marathon in Oct and blew out my adrenals. I have been diagnosed with hypothyroid, been put on meds, still not losing weight. Hired a nutritionist, not eating any sugar and very low carb, still no weight loss. She has no idea what is happening, so I went to an Applied Kinesologist, have been off gluten and casein (protein in dairy milk) for 40 days, still no loss. I know we are getting closer to a solution, but my gosh, I feel for you. If you find out some answers, please let me know. I am going to my doc on Wed this week, with a list of questions.
(I may have hypothyroid and I have weight issues.) I read something about those with hypothyroid issues having water and salt gain rather than usual weight gain, but it can look the same.
For some weight loss is a "great mystery" - every day people ask here.
But..........Do you have any lingering hypo symptoms that suggest you are not at YOUR proper thyroid hormone levels regardless of the doc saying you are in 'range'.
The range is average for all people, with a lot of leaning on the hyposide for many.
Are there foods that slow your digestive function? This is hard to follow given the typical American meal of mixing all foods. What I'm leaning to is food intolerances that can make people gain - other ill symptoms will be there too though.
