I eat very clean, rarely at restaurants. I have been on Linzess (Lazy bowels) for years, been on synthroid (subclinical hypothyroidism) for several months now along with simvastatin for high cholesterol (hereditary). All blood work shows perfect numbers. I have done several variations with my macros monitored by a trainer. I have not been able to drop any weight in 3 years. No one understands, not even the doctors. I am a personal trainer my self and work out 5-6 days a week. I’m about to stop all prescribed meds because I don’t know if they may be causing the issue. I feel like I’ve been beating my head against a brick wall! Any suggestions?

Synthroid has been known to cause increased appetite, but both the Linzess, and the Simvastatin are known to cause weight loss. Other side effects may include nausea, joint/muscle aches, headache, diarrhea, and dizziness.

Regarding your diet, while you eat clean, how much do you eat daily? Have you ever compared the amount of calories you take in to how many you burn off? What types of foods do you usually eat?

How much do you wish to lose?

Re: VerFree (# 1)

Only side effects that I've noticed are insomnia and muscle aches. I take in approx 1200-1500 a day and burn on avg 2500. You name the macro combination - I've tried it. I've increased calories, I've tried intermittent fasting, I've carb cycled. I swear I have tried it all.
