Hypothyroidism – #1 Cause Of Weight Gain

To trim down, start by subtracting calories from your daily count — but do it safely. Don’t go on an extremely strict, low-calorie diet. Your body will only hoard calories, and you’ll end up gaining weight. Instead, you want to find a balance between the calories you take in and the calories you burn off each day.

The hormones your thyroid gland releases help regulate your metabolism, or how efficiently your body burns food for energy. When your thyroid makes less of its hormones — as it does in hypothyroidism — your metabolism slows down. So you won’t burn off calories as quickly and you’ll gain weight. The weight gain usually isn’t extreme, maybe 5 or 10 pounds, but it can be enough to affect your self-esteem.The more severe your hypothyroidism is, the more weight you’ll gain. Some of the weight gain is fat, but much of it is fluid buildup from the effects of an underactive thyroid on your kidney function.
