Personally, I've never had the time to connect a scale to the toilet, so I'll just take your word on that.

TMI I know but after the birth of my son I had extreme constipation. Nothing helped!!! Couldn't go for 3 weeks. Then eventually I decided to use Colon Prep (the stuff they give you before a colonoscopy. It work like hell, I woke up 12 lbs lighter the next day
I had a maid at the time and when she saw me in the morning she said : Mam, what happened? You went to bed fat and woke up skinny

Having most of the same health problems as you have Odette, I will tell you which diet the Clinicians in my life have agreed upon: The DASH Diet I am happy with this one. It's a diet for folks with high blood pressure, so you can be liberal with the sodium requirements if you don't have high BP.

I didn't know it had a name--that's pretty much how I eat minus the sweets and I really don't eat that many servings of grains every day. But I do get a lot of servings of veggies, just not a lot of fruits--I'm working on that, and fiber.

"In addition to being recommended by your physician, DASH is also endorsed by:
  • The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (one of the National Institutes of Health, of the US Department of Health and Human Services)
  • The American Heart Association (AHA)
  • The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans
  • US guidelines for treatment of high blood pressure
  • The 2011 AHA Treatment Guidelines for Women
  • The Mayo Clinic."
From the link I provided.

I got angry with my care team and told them to get together somehow and decide what diet to follow since I could not follow all their recommendations separately and have anything nice to eat.
I also gave them the list of things I WOULD NOT eat, like artificial sweeteners, etc.

I've looked up a few sample menus from this diet. Sounds yummy and easy

Very glad I don't have hypertension though! I love salt I do use celery salt most of the time, at least it's got less sodium in it
