Thyroid imbalance and weight loss resistance
Thyroid imbalances are more and more prevalent these days, though many cases fly
under the radar because they aren’t detected by standard laboratory tests. Subclinical
hypothyroidism — where women continue to suffer symptoms like weight gain, cravings
and fatigue but present as “normal” on their thyroid tests — is not even recognized
in conventional medicine. This leaves so many women feeling helpless because the
weight gain and fatigue they’re experiencing indicate something is truly wrong in
their bodies. But they simply aren’t given any answers or direction about how to
How low thyroid can lead to weight gain
When thyroid hormones are low — even just a little — the part of your brain that
controls appetite can be affected intensely. The key chemical messengers that regulate
our eating behavior become mixed up when thyroid hormones are imbalanced. Here’s
- Serotonin decreases.
- Beta endorphin decreases.
- GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) decreases.
- Leptin becomes inefficient.
Serotonin, beta endorphin, and GABA are brain chemicals connected to food cravings
as well as feeling satisfied after we eat. And leptin is a critically important
hormone because it tells the body when to lose weight and when to keep it. These
changes not only increase the amount of weight you gain, but they can also enhance
cravings, inhibit the sensation of fullness, decrease energy and lower moods. No
wonder we find that the weight is packing on!
The result is intense carbohydrate cravings, low energy and depressed moods, changes
in body shape and stubborn weight gain. Yet, the solution is relatively simple.
