Hi. I have Hashimotos and a poor converter of T4 to T3. I’m positive DIO2 gene tested. I’m on Levothyroxine and Liothyronine medication.
Has anyone successfully lost weight when their thyroid levels are optimal.
I’ve been going to the gym for a little under 3 months. I only do cardio workouts. Treadmill, cross trainer and rower. I also walk fast every day around my village for 30 mins. I’m a vegetarian and keep an eye on my food intake. Admittedly I did eat more over Christmas.
When I was prescribed T3 medication I’d put on 2st in about 6 months prior. Thankfully I lost the 2st within the next 6 months with T3 help. However, I’m still overweight by another 2 stone. I just cannot lose one pound, not one. I haven’t put weight on and can’t lose any either. My next idea is to go on a diet. And I wanted to ask people in our forum if they’ve had any success. If so what was it that helped. I’m considering cutting out carbs but I’m wary of doing that
Many thanks and a very happy new year to everyone.
