What is up with the trend of people blaming thyroid problems for weight gain and/or being overweight? Less than 1% of people actually have thryoid issues such as hypothyroidism.
Now, the quote below is taken directly from the American Thyroid Association.
"Massive weight gain is rarely associated with hypothyroidism. In general, 5-10 pounds of body weight may be attributable to the thyroid, depending on the severity of the hypothyroidism."
Even those that have hypothyroidism are not all at risk of being overweight or experiencing weight gain as long as they, you know, live a healthy lifestyle and take the appropriate action.
Regular exercise and a healthy/balanced diet will do wonders for your health.
I would like to take a moment to give a heartfelt thank you to everyone out there that follows and interacts with this blog. Thank you ever so much. I also owe all of you an apology for the intense lack of updates over the last year. My bad. (Is that still cool to say?) Currently, there are many big things in the works for the future of this blog and my next project(s) which has distracted me momentarily. Fear not though my faithful followers because on the way are regular updates, entertainment, original content, and the continuing spread of up-to-date nutrition and fitness information that is backed by science, research, and evidence.
