Hi, I have been diagnosed with a hypothyroid condition. Three years ago I gained about 30 pounds in about 6 months, this prompted me to see the Doc. I am curently taking Synthroid (I can't remember the dosage. .150?) and the wieght gain has stopped. I've been dieting with negative results. I can lose about 8 pounds and that's it. I've also started to weight train about 4 times a week also with a cardio work out as well. My question is this: can I take supplements such as Prolabs Thyro-stack to increase my fat burning potential with out any side affects. I know when dieting, the body's metabolism slows down as a natural reaction to conserve body fat for survival. I've been training hard with a good diet for 5 months, my muscles are responding well but nothing is coming off the waste. My Stats are: 29 yrs old, Male, 5'9", white, 210 pounds. Any help would be great. Thank you
This question is out of the realm of topics covered in this forum. In general weight loss requires exercise at a moderate level for 40-60 minutes minimally 4 days a week; cardivascular exercise is much better for weight loss than weight training. Good luck.
