    HELP! I'm not new to exercising, I eat right (admittedly usually NOT enough) and have been battling to lose a lousy 15lbs for far too long. You name it, I've tried it. Changed my routine, supplements, food diary, more cardio, more weight training...I could go on & on. Anyway, since the new year I've amped up my workouts and for that I have gained weight every week...yes I have fat to lose, I know all about replacing fat w/muscle...that's not what's happening. Suggestions, Advice....HELP!! Thanks!

    Long term weight loss is the result of recapturing, then, optimizing one's health. Is good health insured by diet and exercise, alone? Hardly. There are numerous, mitigating factors that can significantly affect one's health...

    ...Air quality, sleep quality, digestive disorders, drugs & supplements,
    blood sugar, etc...

    How much time do we have?


    ...Yet, you spared us from going "on and on"...


    The reality is, you should go "on and on"...with a qualified "somebody", one who can establish the right metrics and run the right tests for you. A doctor can be a great place to start, imo.
