Dr. Berg talks about how to lose weight even if you have an extremely slow thyroid or if you had your thyroid removed. The thyroid controls every cell in your body – it controls the metabolism and the mitochondria and even intracellular enzymes.

Intermittent fasting is the answer…but only 1 meal per day.

  1. I began two meals a day three weeks ago because I thought it would reduce the IBS flare up and produce more weight loss. My BMI is 42.8. I still have the IBS but the episodes are less frequent. I don't have an appetite to eat a lot of food on two meals per day. I have one meal in the morning, high fat, low carb. I have another meal at 8pm. The second meal is a plant protein and berry smoothie. The smoothie drinks appear to place less stress on my stomach than eating food. The weight loss is a half pound per day. Is it very common to experience a decrease in appetite when doing intermittant fasting?

  2. Hashimoto's disease has ruined my life and I am hungry most of the day even on a controlled diet eating healthy and exercising. Nothing is working. I stopped taking Levothyroxine because it caused me to gain more weight and lose more hair and I felt worse taking it. I was raised natural healing by my mother and I dislike medications so I'm now taking black seed oil but I just started it a week ago and there has been a study done on it and it's supposedly helps bring down TPO levels helps and aids in weight loss and raises metabolism after 6 to 8 weeks of taking it.

  3. Going to do this for sure. My body type is an apple. Just cannot loose weight. But I started the Keto diet almost a month ago and finally lost 8 lbs. Now thanks to you Dr. Berg. I'll do the intermittent fasting, and work up to one meal a day. Thank you!

  4. I’ve had CBC done several times over the course of the past 4 years. My thyroid has consistently been at the low end of normal. I’ve asked if my thyroid is slowing down. But My Dr. doesn’t seem to think it’s a problem. But my weight has crept up and I can’t get it off. Is this the definition of slow thyroid?

  5. I just found out i have a goider. Will it go down? Im a freaking out. I havent started meds meds yet. Day 5 of keto. Help

  6. Is it true that women shouldnt do IF everyday?i have watched one nutritionist saying idealy for women it should be once a week only and not everyday coz its the same benefits we will get.its confusing me!

  7. I had Hashimotos for years and then had thyroid cancer. My metabolism is very slow. I learned that thyroid patients need to avoid soy. Also, certain veggies that are normally healthy for people like raw spinach, kale etc…. they aren't good raw for patients with hypothyroidism and Hashimotos. You need to eat greens cooked. For some reason raw greens with thyroid patients can causes nodules, which are often cancerous. Intermittent fasting is very effective for thyroid weight loss.
