🎯 NEWS FLASH! 🎯
Most people who take medication for #hypothyroidism still have all the annoying symptoms, including weight gain. This is because medication does NOT help CHANGE the symptoms and this leads to people thinking they need to work out harder because what they've been eating and the way they've been working out isn't working anymore. .
BUT☝🏼️here's the deal...slow thyroid function leads to slow metabolic function, so that's why it seems like out of nowhere you're gaining weight when nothing has changed. That's why so many people are desperate to do cardio. But hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, and Hashimoto's are exasperated by stress...meaning you can give yourself hypothyroidism by too much stress! 😳 And guess what? Cardio is an added STRESSOR! So, as you can see, it makes things worse. .
A lot of people are doing cardio because they want to burn calories to get the extra weight off that they've unexpectedly put on, but what they don't understand is that it's actually making it much worse...almost to the point of making it impossible for your body to let go of the fat. .
Here's what I want you to do: .
1️⃣ Short bursts of exercise (I never work out for more than 30 min) .
2️⃣ Focus on STRENGTH not calories. Get strong. More muscle = less fat .
3️⃣ Burn more calories with no exertion exercise like standing while you work and walking wherever you can .
4️⃣ Stop doing so much cardio!!! .
Got it?! 😜💪🏼 I challenge you to lift some weights today!
