IF SO WHAT DO YOU RECONEND FOR MY SERIOUS AND UGLY SITUATION.
The only thing that speeds up metabolism is regular exercise. Food and/or vitamins do not directly speed metabolism. REGULAR aerobic exercise and light weight training will help to burn calories and build muscle. Muscle is what ultimately increases the rate at which you burn calories, which is what speeding up your metabolism means. You SHOULD eat a healthy well-balanced diet daily. Stick to the fruits that you can tolerate. Eat from all the food groups daily! Drink plenty of water also! You can take a multivitamin but that should only be used as an insurance policy along with a healthy diet to ensure you are getting all the nutrients you need daily.
*Always check with your doctor before starting any type of exercise program and/or supplement!
If you feel you have problems with metabolism you may want to talk to your doctor about having your thyroid checked.
