Ever since my adrenal crisis, I have gained approximately 50-60 lbs. I am not able to exercise due to my sensitive and depleted cortisol levels, I'm experiencing blood sugar fluctuations and I'm generally feeling very fatigued and unmotivated. I'm also certain the hypothyroidism induced by my adrenal fatigue is also contributing towards this weight gain and impaired metabolism. I can't reduce calories (which are only 1800-2000 a day and I'm a young male). I am visibly gaining fat and feeling increasingly self-conscious and depressed. It's pretty dismal. I just don't know where to go from here.
