What foods, supplements, and diets are best to counteract weight gain due to memory loss from a TBI?

During my period of little memory, I ate eccessively and gained weight that seems not to come off despite multiple different strategies I've tried.  I'm now very interested in what specific options will work best!

Anyone had any success taking turmeric? Does it really help?

I am not in to natural/herbal supplements period. However, I am experiencing inflammation not only in my joints, but also in my brain possibly. I have just started taking turmeric. I just realized that it probably doesn't cross the blood/brain barrier so it was a useless purchase. I'm always sceptical of these products because I once had a doctor insist that I take glucosamine sulfate, so I took it for a couple of weeks and had explosive diahrrea for a further two weeks after I stopped taking it. After that experience I have not touched anything herbal.
