Last year I lost more than 70 lbs for the fourth time in 20 years. It took me 11 months. Since then I have regained 30 pounds. I know that by overdieting I sent my body into starvation mode, and that my metabolism is still really slow.

I have kept record of my food intake which averages at 1500 Kcal/day. I exercise 4-5 times a week (brisk walking 30-45 minutes), and still gain weight. As a 42 your old male, I should easily burn 2200 calories a day, but I don’t, that’s for sure.

I have read dozens of books and searched the internet to find out how long it takes for a slow metabolism to recover and to start burning energy at a normal level again, but I find no answers.

Have I shed too much muscle tissue? What can I do to get my metabolism back to ‘normal’?
