I exercised and dieted for years and years with nothing to really show for it except:
👎🏼 Yo-yoing weight (by about 15 lbs.)
👎🏼 A waistline that never changed
👎🏼 A belly that never changed
👎🏼 Consistently high blood pressure and cholesterol
I have had hypothyroidism issues for years. My levels jumped all over the planet. I went from one specialist to another. I did bloodwork 3 or more times a year for years. Also crazy discouraging.
Gut health was the tipping point for me.
When my gut health improved, so did my thyroid levels. When my thyroid and gut health were both better, weight loss was 100 times easier doing the same programs I had done for years. My cravings and appetite changed. My waistline shrunk. It was not a 30 to 90 day process. It took a solid year. But for me, it was totally worth it!
Yes, dieting and exercise are important. No one is going to lose a lot of weight eating fast food all day and being sedentary (but wouldn't that be amazing if you could, right? lol).
If you have discouraging weight issues and have tried everything else, please consider getting your gut cleaned up and your thyroid tested to see if you need help with that too.
