Dear Carole
I am sorry to hear that you are struggling so much to lose weight. I can only suggest that you try something like Xenical or a gastric bypass operation to stop the weight gain if nothing else is working. Xenical is a real fat-trapper. It prevents the body from absorbing any fat in the diet, thus reducing your energy intake considerably. It has to be used with a very-low-fat diet, because the fat passes straight out of the body and can cause 'accidents'. So anyone who uses Xenical must cut out practically all fat from the diet. Discuss its use with your dr and also ask him/ her about the option of a gastric bypass for which he/she would have to refer you to a surgeon who does these ops.
