Ep #16: Lose Weight and Increase Your Energy: Understanding Your Thyroid

If you’re struggling with your weight and energy levels and nothing seems to make sense anymore, this episode is for you. You may have changed your diet and started working out, but literally nothing is changing, so it’s time to dig a little deeper. Your metabolic function has a master controller. It’s called your thyroid, and this is one of the most deep-rooted imbalances I see in women who are having difficulty losing weight and increasing their energy.

What I’m sharing today goes beyond exercise and nutrition. Understanding the role and functionality of your thyroid is the perfect complement to the lifestyle changes you’re making because, if your thyroid sucks, your metabolism sucks too. So, let’s fix it.

Tune in this week to discover why your thyroid is the key to a properly functioning metabolism. You’ll learn how your thyroid works and interacts with your metabolism, the problem with medical blood tests for abnormal thyroid function, and I’m giving you tons of simple, practical tips for getting your thyroid functioning the way your body needs it to.
