Have you considered consulting a dietician?

I'm not trying to lose weight but would like to redistribute some.

It wouldn't have to be moved far. Just from my belly to my behind.

You see, I suffer from the men's disease "Noasitol".

The primary warning sign is a constant hitching up of the britches as they yield to the pull of gravity.

If you constantly have the sensation of a reverse snuggie you just may have noasitol.

This is the diet decided on/approved by my Cardiologist, my Primary and the Dietician.

I get two slices of bread every other day - 9 grain and I only have 1 half serving of rice crackers as a mid-afternoon snack. No starchy carbs at lunch, protein and veg/fruit only.

You could try adding papaya or pineapple to your diet. The enzymes they contain help you break down proteins and they provide good fiber. Low carb diet can cause pretty bad constipation.

Drinking green tea or cayenne tea with a dash of lemon is also good for getting the metabolism going.

I have Green Tea or Cayenne every day and I've really noticed an improvement in my overall health.

Not having problems with constipation, days I don't eat steel cut oats, I have pineapple as a mid morning snack. I get plenty of carbs from the fresh fruit and veg I eat. I'm eating right...that's why the weight gain is making me crazy! I'm exercising right...that's why the weight gain is making me crazy. So I am down to medications that are causing the weight gain...

That's a big possibility! It would drive me crazy too
Hope you figure it out, good luck

Then the only explanation can be the photos on DC. You must be able to figure out how to turn off that feature so you can't see the pics of food? Your brain tells your body you ate the food when you look at the pics, and therefore, you are not losing the weight. Your brain is lying to your body. I'm sure there is a study out there s/where that shows people who spend time cooking in cyberspace / on food forums have a harder time losing weight even when on a restricted diet.

Or you might be getting water retention from sitting in front of your PC to often!
