You're definitely not alone. I have Ulcerative Protitis and I am having troubles losing weight as well.

Managing fitness with IBD demands a balanced approach. Start with low-impact exercises like walking or yoga. Listen to your body's signals and adjust intensity accordingly. Consistency is key, but don't push too hard. Here is an article offers a 3-day-a-week workout plan, which can be adapted to suit your needs. Remember to hydrate well and prioritize rest. Consulting a healthcare provider for personalized advice is crucial.

Consuming less calories than your body burns will result in weight loss. Both a good diet and regular exercise will help you reach your goal.
Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, and healthy fats are examples of nutrient-dense foods that should make up the bulk of a healthy diet. The nutrition and energy from these foods might keep you going for longer without feeling hungry.

If you are interested in Texas, then you can buy it from here for less money.
Texas Toast, while a tasty addition to a meal, is not a sufficient basis for a healthy diet on its own. A diet consisting solely of Texas toast is not sustainable and will not provide your body with the nutrients it needs to function effectively.
Instead, think about including Texas Toast, along with other healthy foods, in small amounts as part of a well-balanced diet. You may serve it with a salad or steamed vegetables and a protein like grilled chicken or fish.
A healthcare provider or registered dietitian can provide you with the individualized advice and support you need to create a weight loss strategy that is both safe and effective.

Try low-carb diet!

Low-carbohydrate diets have been shown to cause weight loss and improve some risk factors for heart disease. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in four deaths are caused by heart disease.
