I’m 215 pounds as of today feb 21 2009. i exercise 4 to 5 times a week. I weighed between 185 and 190 in 2006 before i suddenly began gaining weight unexpectedly. i never before watched what i ate but I always exercised just to stay fit but ate whatever i wanted and never gained weight and my job consist of being on my feet all day walking in a circle at an hot iron foundry and lifting constant heavy objects so I sweat a lot. so i don’t get how I’m gaining weight. I cut out all fried foods no sodas and I eat 3 to 4 fruits everyday and vegetables every other day for the last 2 years now. I bake all my meats so I don’t know whats going on that I cant lose weight. This has been going on for almost 3 years now I went from a size 36 to a 40. Are there any doctors that specialize in helping someone like me. I’m 6 feet tall and 25 years old

You may want to try consulting with an endocrinologist.  This is the type of doctor that would diagnose a problem with your hormonal system.  I think it would be worth while to rule out any type of thyroid problem because these are the most reasons why people will experience changes in their metabolism.

At such a young age I would not anticipate you having such difficulty maintaining weight particularly given how much activity you do.

Also consider other aspects of your diet.  It is great that you have cut out soda’s and are eating more fruits and vegetables but also watch how much carbohydrates you are taking in.  They will make it very difficult to loose unwanted weight.
