Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
how do you know your body burns 1400 calories a day?
you should get blood testing to check your thyroid hormone levels
if you have hypothyroidism, this can decrease your metabolism and cause easy weight gain
have you had your thyroid hormone levels checked?
what is your TSH or thyroid stimulating hormone level?
are you exercising regularly?
