Did you know that an estimated 30 million Americans are having problems losing weight because of a thyroid issue? The thyroid gland regulates your body’s metabolism, helps maintain your body temperature, and “controls the neurotransmitters in the brain altering your moods, appetite, behavior, and emotions.” Having an underactive thyroid will make it hard to regulate your metabolism, which will cause you to gain weight even if you are eating very little.
If you think you are having thyroid issues, check with your doctor. No matter how much you change your lifestyle to lose weight, if it’s a thyroid problem it needs to be corrected.
