Metformin: As we get older, we tend to become Insulin resistant. Metformin acts like a metabolic rejuvenator, and restores Insulin sensitivity. I recommend 500 mg metformin three times daily. Metformin will normalize blood sugar, but will not cause hypoglycemia. My non-diabetic patients on metformin invariably feel better, have more energy, lose their carbohydrate cravings, and lose body fat. ...Read more

Most of the population follows this pattern. Make sure your doc considers you healthy & then consider following a change in dietary intake. Adkins low carb works for most by pushing your body into using fat to create carbs. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

It is impossible...: It actually is impossible for a human to be unable to lose weight, because weight loss follows a fundamental law of nature. If a person takes in more calories than she needs to live on, she will gain weight. If she takes in fewer calories than she needs to live on, she will lose weight. Every human follows this natural law, so every human loses weight if she eats fewer calories than she needs. ...Read more

Recommend getting a fitbit or equivalent and use not only the exercise features, but the calorie/food counting features. If you tally up all your food every day, you may have some surprises. ...Read more
