When I turned 60, I started gaining weight (normally until then around 138). I tried everything, and with every medication that was added, it seemed harder and harder to boost my metabolism. I exercise, eat sensibly (no fad dieting) just vegetables, fruits, fish, low carbs, seldom sweets). I have struggled many years with GERD, etc., and now my doctors (both Gastro and Internal) say I must lose 20 pounds. I don't know what else to do. I now weigh 182 and have for several years despite all my efforts. I have read so much on the subject, but there's very little out there for my age group. HELP!!!
