Young adult daughter struggling w hormones/ energy/ weight gain
My young adult daughter ( age 27) is really struggling with her health and specifically weight and energy level. It is hard for me to see her so upset with herself and her body. I want to be supportive but also allow her the ability to figure this out mostly in her own. She has been steadily gaining weight since her late teens and at about 17 she was diagnosed with a thyroid condition and has been medicated and monitored for that. She gained more weight when she got an IUD ( with hormones) a few years ago. She just met with a nutritionist and learned more about healthy eating, exercise, etc. She met with a nutritionist and paid a lot of money for her guidance. She went on this very restrictive meal plan for at least a month or two and then started reintroducing things back into her diet to see the impact. She lost one pound during this whole time ( her friend did the same thing and lost 14 lbs during the same time frame.) she is so upset and I don’t know how to guide her. She knows about exercise and nutrition. She got her IUD removed and is hoping that will help. She thinks her hormones are still out of whack but we don’t really know what she should do Next. Does anyone have advice on other things she can do find out why she is struggling so mightily? Does anyone have a recommendation for any type of health practitioner or other professional who is willing to dig deep and really help her figure out what is out of whack and help her get herself back on track?
