Healthy lifestyle

By healthfoodshmealthfood - 17/11/2011 14:34 - United States

Today, after years of training myself to crave healthier foods in order to lose weight, I found out that some of my favorite health foods actually aggravate my hypothyroidism, and indirectly reduce my metabolism. Broccoli and soybeans are making me fat. FML

I always knew my parents were wrong when they told me to eat my broccoli!

Stop being fat

Try eating ice cream, maybe it'll make you slim!

And malnourished, if it is the base of the diet.

Try eating air, it'll make you slim!

That's a bummer...well if that's making you fat you might as we go all out an eat till you're stuffed, greasy food here I come! Haha

32- Why does your pic make it look like you're taking it from the guy behind you? And your expression looks like shock and pleasure?

that's just stupid.

Why does your picture look like a shitty demotivational poster that you took off the Internet?

What does this have to do with the FML?

No, I would choose Squirtle cause he would look like a fuckin hoss when he evolved into Blastoise. And I would always name my opponent ass because I thought I was so clever, and I'd giggle like a little bitch whenever we would fight.

Who the fuck argues about which pokemon they would be?

Well actually I have hypothyroidism as well, did you find out that you're not supposed to eat lettuce either? Yeah... Pretty limited.

75 why the fuck are you even playing a game meant for 8 year olds. Get a life you basement bum!

Or strawberries , or spinach ..... There are a few things

Noooooooo!!!! Say it ain't so!

I agree with 3, if healthy foods won't work then working out sure will.

Working out will make OP healthier, but losing weight is 95% diet. Find healthy, balanced foods that don't aggravate your hypothyroidism and eat fewer calories than you need to maintain your current weight (a caloric deficit). Work out too, to remain/become healthy and fit, but the weight loss will come almost entirely from your diet. Finally, you only have to lose enough weight to be healthy. Don't worry about what other people think. And all this is easier said than done, so good luck.

I can provide you with the good stuff...

I got the money now you got the banana.

Personally, if I was overweight. I would have been working out, and eating healthy.. At the same time. Not just eating healthy itself will do it all. But maybe that's just me? I don't know. I eat tons of food.. And play sports. But I'm a skinny chick.. Haha, so I don't know what it's like to be overweight.

Thanks 4 the advice!. I'm the OP and I actually don't have that hard of a time losing weight, thank goodness. Keeping it off is the problem. Hitting the gym def is key and so is keeping the carbs down, specially at night..for me at least.

That's misleading

Of course, it all makes sense they want us to get fat so when we get old enough we can't move away... Or shall I say roll..

Oh crap, ignore this comment..

Yes! Finally, someone on the Internet who knows the correct meaning of irony! Your certificate of achievement is in the mail

Hahaha thanks. I was not aware there was another way of spelling it. :o)

Heathz, you turned that win in to a fail in record time.

Just try to workout and do cardio :/

The OP probably does work out - people with her problem can work out way more and eat way healthier than a thin person - so many of these comments are so completely obtuse . . .

Obtuse comments???

Agree with 111... People don't want to learn, though... They just want to apply their limited experience to any situation...

You're right. I do work out and eat healthy but I'm not stick thin, which is fine. You're right though about hypo making it more difficult to lose weight. It's not impossible but it's def a challenge sometimes. Meds make it easier.

OP, it can make it impossible to lose weight. I was counting calories and doing workouts and I was still gaining weight.

Metal, hope things are going better for you. My friend has severe hypo and it's hard for her to lose weight even with the gym/diet. I just learned I have it so I'm trying to find out as much as I can and it explains the 7lbs I gained out of nowhere.

shouldda stuck to the dollar menu.

More like the heart-attack-on-the-go menu. I'd rather have a bowl of cereal then that greasebomb they call food.
