I just don't know...

I just don't know what to do next. I am not losing weight, in fact I gained 15 pounds suddenly without any reason. I bought a blood glucose monitor and blood glucose stays between 75 and 95. I eat beef, chicken, pork, turkey,  fish, eggs (from pastured hens), butter from organic farms pastured cows,  make my own mayo from a pastured egg and avocado oil, onions, blueberries, and other leafy greens on rare occasions. My downfall is heavy whipping cream, I think I may have a problem with the protein in it. Had a bit one evening recently before bed time and had an episode of acid reflux about 4 AM.  Drink a coffee in the morning, usually one mug with heavy whipping cream in it. Water the rest of the day.

Got my results from my check up. Thyroid numbers were perfect, right in the middle of the reference range, vitamin D3 was 49.3 ng/mL. This was a bit of a surprise because I take 5000 IU/ day in a olive oil base capsule. Have been taking that for 2 years. Last year in November it was 71ng/mL. Doctor wouldn't order a cholesterol test as I informed her I would not be taking a cholesterol lowering drug. I did tell her I wanted to track my trigs and HDL. That went in one ear and out the other.

For breakfast I usually eat 2 eggs scrambled with a bit of heavy whipping cream and about 10 - 15 blueberries, cooked in butter and 10 oz. coffee with HWC. Lunch is normally 4 -6 ounces fatty protein or 6.5 ounces tuna  mixed with my mayo. Dinner is 4 - 6 ounces fatty protein. I might occasionally snack on 1-2 ounces real cheddar cheese or about 10 - 15 pecan halves or almonds.

I want to start some kind of exercise program. The plan is to walk on the treadmill for about 10 minutes as a warm up then do some weight lifting perhaps followed by some stretching.
