I'll help you out buddy. How going outtside with your wheelchair for small tours every day just to start with. You will lose calories just by doing that. Drink lots of water, take some Omega-3 fish oil.

ok i am going to give u my personal weight loss formula that i am currently using, when this diet is combined with exercise you will be able to see results fast but i know that might not be the easiest thing for since u are in a wheelchair, in the morning u must drink about 40 to 60 grams of whey protein with nothing else, at lunch u must drink the same ammount with nothing else, for dinner u must eat a light dinner consisting of something high in protein, plain vegetables, and a small amount of carbs (5-15g), i typically eat shrimp and brocoli for diner because shrimp is very high in protien, low in bad fats and high in the good ones, brocoli acctually blocks estrogen levels in the body and supresses the chemical in the body that converts testosterone into estrogen, if u are accustomed to eating alot then at first u will feel very hungry, it is just because your stomach is used to taking all that food and its kind of a shock to the system to eat that much less, i have tried this diet plan with other people and it has worked for them, so it should more than likely work for you, just rember to keep with it, if u have any questions feel free to message me

I'll give it a try. I'm getting a little because nothing seems to be eating. I eat very small meals because I have meds to take and it's not a good idea to take any of them on a empty stomach.

if u stick with it u will see results, but u are right taking meds on an empty stomach is not a good idea so u may want to change up when u take your protein just so u get the full efect of your medication

only way i know to lose weight is to limit what goes in the top hole. Remeber what goes in the top end effects weight and its a lot bigger than the bottom hole
