We call your tummy an inflammation meter, and your weight can be a good indicator of your metabolism and the inflammation in your body.
We've known for decades how processed, starchy carbs break down into glucose and fructose if no exercise is involved these stay in the body creating fat in your cells. If you wanted to check for this in yourself, your doctor would look at fasting insulin levels and do a functional glucose tolerance test.
An imbalance of bacteria in the gut can also be one reason for mysterious weight gain. If this bacteria is causing inflammation in your gut then your body will release cortisol which can immobilize glucose. If you're surging cortisol, a good walk or circuit workout can help your body use up the glucose instead of storing it.
In order to lose weight in a healthy manner, you need B vitamins, CoQ10, and many other important nutrients for your mitochondria to run fatty acid oxidation so you can generate ATP as the cellular currency for energy so you can burn fat for fuel. Be an energy burner, not an energy store.
If you feel like you're not eating a lot of carbs and sticking to a lot of meat, try to remember you need to hit all your nutrient (macro) goals for each day too. Go for unlimited non-starchy vegetables. Organ meats and egg yokes are all nutrient-dense as well.
If you drop most processed, high-fructose, starchy carbs you're body will drop glucose production, then drop insulin, then drop water, and then sodium and you'll see weight loss. But if this still doesn't do it, you need to look into the gut, inflammation, the compounds that make up the foods you eat regularly, your digestion, hormones, and/or more to get to the root cause.
