What causes sudden weight gain, bloated tummy and tiredness?

I have gained 40 ish pounds in 2 years.. my tummy is very bloated and large, tired throughout the week. All blood test came back fine.. thyroid, iron etc. I exercise, eat clean and am very emotionally and spiritually sound. I am concerned I am missing something important. My doc says our bodies change and go to the weight it wants. I would accept that if I had not gained significant weight each year....that doesn t equate with my lifestyle.

I think you should check your thyroid hormone levels. Hypothyroidism may be a cause of you gaining weight because it lowers metabolism. You should check your thyroid hormone levels T3, T4, and TSH.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
