Adrenal Glands + Weight Gain :(
Hello! My girlfriend has an issue: She has been taking adrenal health medication from our natural doctor but she is still gaining weight.

We know her adrenals are low-functioning, so to combat the weight gain we continue our gluten-free diet, exercise by riding 8 miles on a bike every other day, walking a mile every other other day, eating healthy and mostly vegetarian. We do not consume preservatives or food dyes, and we also eat nitrate-free, local meat when we do eat it. We eat from our garden, so we know we are getting nutrients.

Leah also uses iodine for fibrotic breast tissue.

However, she is still gaining weight. The only deterrent I can think of is that she ate gluten for about 10 days. However, this problem was persistent before that.

Any thoughts/advice/experiences would help! Thank you!

Re: Adrenal Glands + Weight Gain :(
Hi there! I'm so sorry to hear that your girlfriend is gaining weight, despite all that you're doing. I don't have any experience or advise to share; just wanted to praise you on eating and exercising so well and acknowledge your frustration. I have heard of stories where the person was doing everything "right"-- but still felt "off". In a lot of cases, addressing the emotional issues seemed to help. I don't know if your gf has emotional issues/stress/etc, but if she's not already meditating, that's about the only thing I could suggest from experience. Good luck!
