Weight Loss Question

User Profile
Over the past year and a half, I have gained 45 pounds. I am up to 210 pounds and am a 5"7' white male. I am struggling with daily energy and joint pain from the weight. I previously lost 35 pounds after doing a regimen involving weight lifting, biking, and eventually light running. Since then, I gained the weight back.

I have low testosterone, low thyroid hormones, low FSH and LH, hypertensive, hyperlipidemia, asthma, and sleep apnea (intolerant of CPAP and auto BIPAP).

I am struggling to find someone to keep me accountable for exercise and eating better. I am eating probably 3000+ calories a day give or take.

Your symptoms are consistent with metabolic syndrome. I would suggest you to join support group.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
