This is for my dad. He has been exercising the last month, walking over two miles a day. He has lost absolutely no weight at all in this time. He has what we call heart attack fat. All his weight is in his stomach. He doesn't overeat and eats three well balanced meals a day and maybe a little snack. He eats lots of veggies and fruits. His stomach has been swelling and at times his pants are tight on him and hurts his belly and at other times it is hard for him to button his shirt over it. What could this be?

  • Has he tried following the candida diet (no grains, no milk products, no fruits/sugars)? Is he taking probiotics? Has he done a parasite cleanse? I do not believe he has tried that diet. He is not taking probiotics. I do not think he has tried a parasite cleanse. I also meant to mention that he has what the doctors have called a "fatty tumor" on the side of his abdomen...you can see it sticking out. Scans done early last year were normal. The swelling is what concerns me.
