Hi, I had gone through your query and understand your concerns.

Sir, your sugar levels show poor control. The insulin levels are not sufficient to act on carbohydrates for energy, which leads to body depending on fat store making you lean. So first thing to be done is perfect control of sugar levels. Then take Low carbohydrate small frequent diets. High protein diet and the extra nutient powders you are using.
Hope this guides you. Thank you
