Hi, I'm only in peri and 47 but ever since a naturopath gave me progesterone I gained like 15 pounds and can't seem to get it off and have been doing everything right. I've eaten Paleo (low carb, no sugar, no wheat, no grains) for decades and now I'm literally eating like a salad with tuna and a protein shake a day and that's all!!! And intermittent fasting. Stopping eating by 7 or early. Have also tried adding at least one hour walking a day when I'm not feeling too s****y and tired. Had everything tested and no insulin issues, already on thyroid meds, progesterone is low, estrogen is "normal for my age". I'M A WHALE. I've gone up 2 sizes can't fit into clothes. From a 4/6 to a 10. I look very matronly. I do have a large fibroid, again thanks to hormones, but that wouldn't explain my fat legs, chest, arms etc. CAN ANYONE HELP? Please don't tell me to eat low carb or keto or Paleo as I've done that my whole life. I'm prob eating only 1000 calories a day if that. And like I said, adding exercise. I WANT MY BODY BACK. Everything is going to hell and I'm not even 50 yet. And still single 😦
