To Sara of Fit by Sara: “I’ve struggled with hypothyroid (underactive thyroid) for the last 5 years and have trouble losing weight and keeping it off.  Do you have any suggestions for weight loss for someone who has hypothyroid?”

From Sara of Fit by Sara: “People are surprised when I say I have hyporthyroid too!  Hypothyroid can be stabilized via medication such as thyroxin.  Make sure you have your blood tested periodically to keep your thyroid levels in check.  Once your thyroid levels are stabilized it should not interfere with your weight loss goals.  If your levels are currently stabilized perhaps you need to mix up your exercise routine, try something new, incorporate weights and high tempo intervals.  Keep a food journal and notice your eating habits.  Substitute unhealthy eating choices with nourishing ones.”
