Q: No matter what I do, I can't seem to lose weight

I have tried healthy eating (no fats), adding fiber to my diet (fruits, vegetables, whole-grain breads), eating less but I just keep gaining weight.

Healthy eating still needs calorie and portion control. 

I would set up an eating plan on paper targetting a certain number of calories and then portion out serving sizes from each food group.  I'd keep a journal of my eating and begin some exercise program as well.  You might consider joining the local Y or finding out if the parks and recreation areas have any classes.  If budget is not a problem I'd work with a nutritionist or dietician directly since I find most people - way underestimate their calories daily AND they are not consistently eating the same calories daily.  Get professional help since "insights indieting and weight loss" often need a professional touch.  bring a week's worth of precise food journals so you have something to work with.
