I have just started on Armour for my hypothyroid. I have been on a low carb/ modified balanced eating plan for 5 years. 3 years ago I started putting on weight for no apparent reason. After taking may tests over the last 2 years to determine what the problem was I was diagnosed with hypothyroid. The diagnoses made me feel hopeful that the 20 pounds I have gain despite healthy eating and 4 to 5 days of cardio a week would come off once my thyroid levels were back to normal. Now I am reading all this information that states that even when thyroid levels return weight loss does not happen. Can someone tell me why this is and what to do about it? I am 34 years old, have 3 kids, and have always maintained a healthy body and weight. I have not experienced any depression with the hypothyroid but if I can't get this unhealthy weight off I will be depressed. I am confused. If my thyroid caused the weight gain why would it being back in balance again cause the weight to come back off?
