Starch Nemesis

I'm finding that I have a love/hate relationship with sugar.

I'm talking ANY sugar. Processed and or Natural.

For some odd reason my body does not metabolize sugar like its supposed too. No matter how much I exercise, or how little I eat, if I follow your basic food triangle, I will blow up to a 500 pound orca, and that's WITH exercising 6 days a week.

I've done testing, I've seen a douchebag endocrinologist, who told me that "yes, you're fat, yes you have a slight metabolic syndrome, so eat less and exercise more". I never felt so humiliated in my life. I was at 1200 calories a day, and exercising with a personal trainer for 5 days a week.

Right now, I'm at 1500 calories a day. Some will tell me I need to eat more. I can't. I do not have the stomach of a person that weighs what I weigh. I can barely force down those 1500 calories, all healthy mind you. My diet consists of Yogurt, Eggs, Low-fat meats, dark green veggies, and Quinoa, the only "grain" I truly allow myself. I rarely splurge on the fruit.

I should weigh 150 pounds.....

My body hates me.

It's horrific isn't it?! I ate 10 strawberries one day added to my low carb diet and I gained weight!! 10 stinking low glycemic strawberries.
If I have no sugar or starch I can lose but give me a trace and it's all over. Don't give up!!
