The real secret to how to lose weight is by helping your body process food and get rid of fat through your hormones and metabolism.
There are many key factors that play a role in weight management and initial weight loss, and I am here to demystify them for you right now.

This is because the body cannot process these types of artificial chemicals.

You're probably thinking "how can my makeup foundation lead to weight gain? That's crazy!"
Right? We have to think again, sister.
Our skin is our biggest organ. This means that what we put on our skin gets absorbed into our bloodstream. These chemicals and toxins get into our bodies and have to be detoxified by our liver.
What if our liver is already burdened?
The liver is our main detox organ. This means that it is working around the clock, filtering our blood and working to keep us healthy....
Counting calories is a thing of the past!
No more trying to do the math for calories in - calories burned to get a number for your weight.
Why is it that counting calories does not work?
This is true because not all calories are created equal. This means that 100 calories of veggies is going to do much different things to your body than 100 calories of soda.

One of the main issues women face with hypothyroidism is weight gain.
This is even harder as it is paired with the increased difficulty in losing weight.
The reason why this happens is that our thyroid controls our metabolism. So when the thyroid is not functioning as strongly, our metabolism also slows down.
Maybe you feel like you're eating healthy, working out, and still not losing that pesky weight!
I completely understand, I've been there!
When my thyroid was not pumping out enough thyroid hormone, I had weight gain in my face and all over my body. Even though I was working out, I still couldn't kick the weight!
That's because our thyroid controls our metabolism, so it is important to get to the root of the issue when we are working on losing weight with hypothyroidism.
It is my goal to help women feel their best while improving their health.
