I know this sounds uber vain in comparison to many of the more distressing issues we deal with on a daily basis...BUT... Does anyone have any tricks for dealing with the seemingly reasonless weight gain that so many of us get? I've packed on 30 lbs in the last year, all the while eating no more than 1400 calories a day. I've actually had to drop it to around 1100 just to stay stable. As an ex-lifter I follow a pretty clean diet protocol as well. I've always had to eat like a bird and train like a thoroughbred to take even the teeniest bit of fat off anyways. Since I've had to remove daily gym time from my life (at least for now...grrrrr ) I'm at a loss as to what else I could be doing. My blood sugar is starting to creep up and I've no desire to deal with type 2 diabetes on top of everything else, yanno?
