I have a thyroid condition that cannot be medicated because I have a super-fast heart beat. Doctors have put me on many different sorts of diets and I actually gain weight. The five or six small meals really did me in with weight gain. Calorie counting did nothing, either. When I went to a gym, my fitness expert was baffled that I lost no weight or inches in the year I went and worked out and changed my diet. I’ve done The South Beach Diet and put on at least 10 pounds when I was on it.
In the last year, because of family problems that made me lose track of myself, I put in 15 pounds and at least 4 inches.
I’d like to try the fix/six small meals since I get hungry very fast between the three “normal” meals a day, particularly between breakfast and lunch. I drink so much water that I can’t imagine increasing that.
I also feel like I’m at a roadblock because I don’t like yogurt (it actually makes me gag), many berries, egg whites, and if I eat too much chicken, I get nauseous.
I’d appreciate any helpful hints or what plan you’re doing.

i also have a tyroid condition – although mine is controlled through medication.
even so, i also have problems losing weight.
i tried lots of different things and i found that many diets i stayed the same, or put on weight, the same with exercise.
i did stumble across JM 30 day shred – this workout i did everyday and in a week i did loose weight.
i also try to follow Dr Lams blood group diet – http://www.drlam.com/blood_type_diet/
i found this and thouht i would give it again, my blood group is O and when Dr Lam talks about different blood types he stated that people who have blood type O tend to suffer with thyroid conditions (I dont know if this relates to you) but i thought i would give it a go anyway and i seemed to keep some of the weight off from when i lost ot doing the JM 30 day shred.
once i finish my course in another couple of months im going to try and get back on track.
i really hope you find some success in loosing weight for the big day, all i can do is empathise with you with the thyroid condition, people who dont suffer from it dont seem to be able to get there head around not being able to loose weight and thats the thing i find most frustrating.
just remember your not alone! if you need someone to have a chat to about it – please message me, itll be nice to chat to someone with the same sort of problem whilst trying to slim down for the wedding.
Good Luck, i have my fingers crossed for you!

Watch the new DVD i think its called sick fat and nearly dead. I also have thyroid problems.
My fiance and I juice everyday. I actually replace my lunch with it. My normal juice consists of apple, carrot, celery, cucumber, and either kale, broccli, or aspargus.
It is something that you have to get used to. We have been juicing since October. Many vegetables have different benefits, which you can look up online. I used to be heavy, but lost most my weight about 4 years ago through diet and exercise. Since juicing i have lost the 20 pounds I regained.
It has to be something you are commited to for sure. If you are not comitted to it then it will not be worth it to buy a juicer. We did get the breville after much research on the different makers.
