disease prevention thyroid health weight loss tips Nov 01, 2023

Have you ever blamed your low thyroid for your weight loss struggles? If so, you’re not alone! The thyroid is a common scapegoat for weight issues.

What many people don’t realize is that their lifestyle choices are the primary determinant of thyroid health.

Things like diet, exercise, sleep, stress, and toxins all play a role in how well your thyroid functions. Just taking medication to correct your hormone levels will likely not be enough to get you the health and weight loss results you want.

To help you better understand the interplay between lifestyle and thyroid health, we brought on a nutrition expert to talk about the nuances of thyroid testing, health, and healing.

Megan Lyons, CCN, BCHN, CHC, MSHN, MBA is a health & wellness expert who is deeply passionate about inspiring others to feel their healthiest and happiest.
