New to this section of the forums!!! Hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving and you're all gearing up for the Christmas festivities.

So, I'm looking for someone who can put together a solid, nutritional meal plan for me that will restore me to my ideal weight naturally without a lot of exercise at first.

I suffer from myriad health issues, which confuse the heck out of me when I'm trying to figure out what to eat, as well as limit my mobility.

A couple of examples:
Borderline diabetic: Eat more greens and stick to the Low GIycemic index - but - I can't have broccoli because I have Hashimoto's Hypothyroid and broccoli is bad for me.

Go Gluten free - but stay away from grains. :-/

I've tried NutriSystem, Weight Watchers, hCG injections & diet, etc., etc., but these "one-size-fits-all" type deals DO NOT work for me.

I've paid hundreds of dollars for personal trainers at a local gym. Stuck with and logged my nutrition and workout plans for three solid months, only to end up gaining even more weight and driving my trainer to tears - literally.

A few years later, I went to a "nutrition specialist" associated with my neurologist, but all she did was put me on amphetamines because sticking to my plan and tweaking that plan week after week after week, was only adding EVEN MORE WEIGHT onto me.

A year later I opted for LapBand surgery and still continued to GAIN weight.

So what started as a SERIOUS weight LOSS journey more than 10 years ago - as in 160 lbs. trying to get back to 120, has instead been a weight GAIN journey taking me from 160 to 215!!!!! HORRORS!!

So, bottom line, I need a very specific, individualized meal plan just for ME, that will fit in with and help treat EVERY ONE of my health issues, which are:

1. PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)
2. Hashimoto's Hypothryoid
3. Adrenal fatigue
4. Thyroid antibodies
5. Borderline diabetes
6. Fibromyalgia
7. Osteoarthritis
8. Asthmatic
9. Former smoker
10. Surgically post-menopausal
11. Anxiety, depression and stress
12. Sleep apnea

And eventually, hopefully, I'll be able to do just a little exercise, like get back on my stationary bike.

Right now, as long as I don't exercise, I'm not in as much pain and can at least get up and down my stairs a couple of times a day. As soon as I start exercising though, even with an "overdose" of Aleve, I have a hard time getting around anywhere because my knees and back hurt too much.

If I can lose some weight FIRST, it should take some pressure off of my joints.

I'm 55 yrs old; 5'1-1/4" tall, and weigh about 215. :-O

Also, I'm on social security disability so the cheaper and easier this plan is, the better I'll be with it. Oh, and I HATE tofu. ROFLMAO

Thanks so much everyone!

And congratulations to everyone who's sticking to their plan and seeing SUCCESS!!!

You should eat more organic foods. You should try reading books and doing a google search on hormonal imbalance. I had a cervical polyp and after reading about hormonal imbalance, it helped me change my diet A LOT. It will give you info on what vitamins to take, teas to drink and foods to eat.

I'm not 100% sure but maybe a hyperglycemia diet will help you as well.
