Get off bananas. I think they make you gain weight even though good potassium. Other ways of getting potassium. Get off wheat too. Too much wheat in everything. Huge stomach may need a digestive enzyme. Just my thoughts from reading....hope you feel better and you get the right help.


hello weight gain is nothing to do with diet and i have self tested fro gluten and coeliac -everything fine.wheat is not a problem for me and wheat cereal is the only thin I really eat that is wheat or contains digestive problem surely gp would say so or test for it/refer me has done none of these nor re referrals I asked for when dismissed by ENT and rheumatology.
