    I’m all those minus constipated & gaining weight. I’m actually losing weight without trying. I’m usually around 135 and now I’m 117.

      You probably have hyperthyroidism I had all the symptoms. My mom noticed I lost 10 to 15 pounds she knew it wasn’t normal so she took me to the doctor where they performed blood tests and I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism in 2014. Fall of 2016 the hyperthyroidism returned and it wasn’t an easy road because hives developed and I had to take a radiation pill while being isolated for three days to control my thyroid. My last visit with my endocrinologist he said I was hypo and my levels are normal since 2016 when I took the radiation. I highly recommend talking to your primary physician about your symptoms. 😊

    • Kari Tacoma says:

      Kristina J. , wow. Thank you so much for your information! I had to take pills for my thyroid back in HS (can’t remember exactly why, though). This was back somewhere between 1997-2001…. so it’s probably time to get it checked again.

    • Kristina J. says:

      Kari Tacoma you’re welcome 😊

    • Martha McCrum says:

      Kari Tacoma Kari see your doctor soon. Weight loss that occurs without an obvious cause such as dieting or not eating should always be checked out to rule out more serious health issues.

    I wake up every morning planning to be productive
    Then my thyroid says
    Hey that’s a good one
    And we laugh and laugh then I take a nap

  • Ravichandran K says:

    Is this video incomplete ?

  • James Humphries says:

    Skipping breakfast is great and very very healthy it’s called intermittent fasting look into it.

    • Milo Martinez says:

      @James Humphries you literally said that intermittent fasting is great and very very healthy WITHOUT linking a study or anything just a “look into it”, so that was basically just your opinion and I gave you mine. https://www.rush.edu/health-wellness/discover-health/why-you-should-eat-breakfast there you have a link with reasons why breakfast is important, feel free to search about it yourself if it doesn’t convince you. So again have a nice day.

    • James Humphries says:

      Milo Martinez – nice avoiding my question again

    • James Humphries says:

      Milo Martinez – Well everything on that page can be debunked very easily we can go through each point one by one if you like. The difference here is one I’ve been a nutritionist for 21 years and 2 I’m trying to educate and help not argue.

    • Milo Martinez says:

      @James Humphries nice avoiding the fact that you didn’t have any scientific or medical article to explain your point of view (that was kinda hypocritical of you btw) . You have questions? then go to an expert, I’m not your personal doctor. You should learn how to accept different opinions if you wanna share yours. I’m done here, good luck.

    • James Humphries says:

      Milo Martinez – I am an expert. That’s the real issue your talking about opinions. Everyone is entitled to there own opinions but not everyone is entitled to there own facts.

    Terrible recommendations for zinc; simply eat more meat, shellfish, or dairy for bioavailable zinc.

  • InaF says:

    So is a sluggish thyroid the same as hypothyroidism? Once diagnosed with that, you’re put on medication. And, what IS destroying everybody’s thyroids now a days? Why isn’t more research going into that? I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism 23 years ago. I had gestational diabetes with my first kid (and second) which was controlled by diet. Having to avoid sugar, I started drinking a ton of diet drinks, whether it be soda or juices. Lot’s of aspartame for many years. About 4 years ago, I decided to kick aspartame from my diet , low and behold, my TSH improved. I went from using 70 mg to 50 mg. I’m convinced that it was the aspartame in all those diet drinks and foods that messed up my thyroid.
