I have had Type 1 diabetes for about 5 years now and I am 24 years old. I have always maintained my weight since day one even though I didn't make the healthiest of food choices. But for the past few months i decided it was time for a change, I wanted to start eating healthier. I go to the gym 5 days a week and eat much healthier than before. After doing all this, I started to gain weight, 12 pounds to be exact in just a few months, feel very tired all the time and have no energy at all. It makes no sense to me! I eat like a pig and don't exercise and have all the energy in the world and I maintain my weight and then I eat healthy and exercise and I gain weight and just want to sleep all the time. At first I thought I was building muscle and I know muscle weighs more than fat however, there is no muscle, it's all fat. How can this happen? I have been working with a nutritionist and she told me that what I am eating is exactly what I should be eating, she just told me to eat less fruit and that my weight gain is coming from the fruit?! She didn't seem too sure though. I wasn't completely convinced with anything she was telling me. That's the first time I've heard that one. Has anyone had a problem with weight gain after eating healthier and starting an exercise regimen besides building muscle? I am just trying to understand this and cant. I don't know what else to do!!
