Hi Everyone, i was thinking about this problem i have with losing weight the other day and it finally occured to me that it could be to do with the M.E. I have always had trouble with gaining weight very easily and not being able to lose it, but recently its getting worse and worse. I dont eat a great deal and i am more active then i was although i cant exercise or walk much. (And yes i do eat enough) I always thought it was a metabolism problem because i dont eat an awful lot and then i wondered if anyone could relate to this and possibly explain why this is happening. I know my mitochondria are messed up and i have an inability to detox properly. Even when i was very active, working as a gardener and swimming/walking a lot i still weighed more or less what i do now as a completely inactive woman. I am also the only person i know who GAINED weight on a month long detox. I am also vegan and i eat a high protein no sugar low carb etc diet for over a year now, yet the weight still keeps pushing upwards. I am beginning to be at my wits end. Please help!
