ARE YOU A THYROID PATIENT WHO CAN'T LOSE WEIGHT?

Start by reading my article, Help! I'm a Thyroid Patient Who Can't Lose Weight: 8 Steps for Successful Weight Loss. It will give you key information to help you in your effort to map out the best thyroid care, eating, supplements, exercise, and lifestyle for weight loss success.

MY "THYROID DIET" BOOK

My New York Times bestselling book, The Thyroid Diet was recently updated and expanded, and the new edition, The Thyroid Diet Revolution, outlines practical ways to cope with thyroid problems, balance hormones, enhance and raise metabolism, how and what to eat, supplements that can help, exercise dos and don'ts, and other information to help you ensure that thyroid problems don't get in the way of successful weight loss.

THE HORMONAL IMPACT ON WEIGHT LOSS

An excellent article to read about thyroid disease and weight loss, it should be this one -- Long Term Weight Loss for Thyroid Patients: Hormonal Factors That Affect Diets An Interview with Kent Holtorf, MD. Dr. Holtorf has found discovered that while there are many factors involved in the inability to lose weight, almost all the overweight and obese patients he treats have demonstrable metabolic and endocrinological dysfunctions that contribute to weight challenges. In particular, Dr. Holtorf addresses the evaluation and correction of imbalances in two key hormones -- leptin and reverse T3 (rT3)-- to help thyroid patients lose weight. It's must reading for any thyroid patient who is struggling with weight issues.
