I am asking about this on behalf of my husband.
He has been gaining weight gradually for the past 2-3 years and is now 3 stone overweight, despite the fact that he eats less than 1500 calories a day and runs for an hour 3 times a week. he has run 4 half marathons in this time and is incredibly fit, so how is it possible that he is putting on weight?
for the last three months he has typically been eating every day - 2 cereal bars, 1 banana, 1 tuna mayo sandwich, 2 chicken breasts with new potatoes and carrots for dinner and then a fruit yoghurt for pudding - thats less than i eat!! he has had a test for cushings disease which came back negative and now our doctor is basically saying he can't do anything for him. he has also seen a nutritionist who could see nothing worng with his diet
If anybody has any suggestions they would be gratefully received as we are getting desperate!!
