I have been struggling with the fact that I have gained about 15 pounds over the past year and I should've been another 20 pounds lower. I have tried everything that I can think of to loose weight keto, no red meat, no sugars, walking 5 to 7 days a week... I have tried to fast but I have to have food in my belly in the mornings before I go to work or I will get sick and pass out, and I can't sleep with a empty belly. does anyone have tips? it's just so frustrating and hard on me mentally.

      After reading the book “Wheat Belly” by Dr. Davis, I cut out carbs, sugar, dairy, and packaged foods. (On rare occasions I will have a bit tho). Instead of desserts I have fruit with nuts and cinnamon and ginger. I eat two meals per day. As a result I have lost 14 pounds and now a size 8. I am also not constipated , thanks to all the fiber in the fruits and veggies. Constipation, as you all know, is one of the symptoms of hypothyroidism.

      Based on my research fasting is actually worse for us thyroid impaired folks. Because if the starvation and conservation reflex our body decides to shut down our metabolism and store everything it can because it feels like it’s not getting enough. I’ve had luck with diets that aren’t calorically restrictive so I can always feel full and eat as much as I need but restricting sugar and carbs. I am lucky enough to not really have a taste for lots of processed foods so when I try to shed a few pounds I can do alright cutting them out from my everyday snacking and just have them as occasional treats but I really wasn’t able to lose anything more than 10 pounds until I had my meds adjusted and had been taking them with vitamin d and b12 for 6+ months. I saw severely deficient in them and I learned they are really important for your metabolism so if you can I’d ask your doctor to test your d and b12. Don’t get discouraged though, I got up to 333 pounds (no lie just a weird coincidence) then I got the right dosage of all my hormones and vitamins and now in a little under a year I’m to 293. That’s not a whole lot for a year but that’s without doing any restrictive dieting or extra exercise. I wish you luck and feel free to dm me!!

      I’m in the same boat. On another post someone recommended Kinsey Jackson, Thyroid reboot.
