Is there any reason why i gain weight very easily now even on a low calorie diet as about 3 to 4 years ago i would eat more & not gain weight at all??

Don't starve urself : If u don't eat too often and wait too many hours to eat the body will store what it can into lipids=fat cells because it feels it should hibernate. If u eat every 2-3 hours the body feels it needs to burn off the food. Other aspects to consider are u'r thyroid, sex hormones like estrogen or Progesterone or even testosterone-but they would also come with unusual hair in areas u may not have had. ...Read more

How low is low?: Seems to me that exercising 4-5hr/d is a bit excessive. You only need 30min or so to improve your health. As for low calorie diet, it depends upon how low is low. More importantly, what kind of calories are you consuming? Healthy or junk? Processed or otherwise? What's your goal w/this extreme approach? Discuss your concerns, plans & goals w/your family doc who knows most about you & your health. ...Read more

If you eat a low calorie diet but majority consists of carbohydrates, would you still lose weight?

Yes, if low enough: Helpful weight loss foods are natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (without salad dressing).

Do i burn calories -lose weight- with adderrall, can i eat normally but lose weight while eating my normal diet -that maintains my weight- ?

Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is for ADD: Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is indicated for ADD, ADHD, Narcolepsy, augmentation for antidepressants and other off label uses that your doctor may prescribe it for. It is not intended for weight loss. As an appetite suppressant, I believe it is very weak, since they're other medications that are indicated for weight loss. The bottom line is that you have to burn 3,500 calories to lose one pound of weight. ...Read more
