I have been experiencing extreme weight gain I'm trying to eat more protein such as grilled chicken, shrimp, and lots of veggies. Also I'm drinking lots of water I'm trying to drink 80-100oz a day but no matter what I've gained weight in 2 months somehow I've gained 20 pounds I can't do hard exercises due to my heart but I still do walks and some outside activities I'm at a loss of what to do because no matter what I keep gaining weight please help

      @Jay2004 if you can’t exercise I think you’ll have to just work on accepting yourself and discuss it with your doctor also, for me they said they’re sorry and that I need to just accept my body as it’s unlikely I’ll be able to be the weight I want in a healthy way as I’m not allowed to exercise because of my heart

      It could be water weight if drinking more than normal which isn’t a bad thing, also eating a lot of protein when ur not exercising it off would add weight, it’s all about calories in vs calories out as long as you consume more than you lose you’ll gain weight and to lose weight you have to burn more than you eat, even if it’s healthy the more calories the more weight you’ll gain which isn’t necessarily bad I don’t know your situation but exercise is the only way to lose weight which is tough I know, my medical condition means I’m not allowed to exercise doctors orders and have gained insane weight from my illness with major stretch marks and I feel so so horrible about it and can’t do anything about it

        @Igglepiggle I know it's so hard cause I can't exercise that's why I'm trying to find diets and your right to lose weight I have to im hoping to figure out what's wrong so I might be able to exercise again. Also I hope your doing well
