Is Your Weight Loss Slowing Down? February 01 2018
The problem: No matter how hard you try, you just can't seem to lose weight You're exhausted all the time, no matter how much sleep you get. You're depressed most of the time, and excess body fat seems to find its way to your midsection. And despite how clean you eat, or how much exercise you get, nothing seems to work.
The problems don't stop there! Now you're having anxiety attacks because you feel like you're doing everything in your power to make yourself feel better, yet things seem to be getting worse with every birthday that passes. You've lost hope and feel completely discouraged, so you quit trying in frustration and start believing that this irritable, tired, chubby state is your new normal now that your over 40. Not!!
Don't settle for subpar health and feeling yucky all the time; there is more hope than you think, and it's not that complicated. You may not believe the solution to your lackluster energy and weight gain could possibly be simple. After all, you've been killing yourself in the gym and starving yourself, and it's actually made things worse. Maybe your last blood test showed your cortisol levels (stress hormones that make your body resist weight loss) are higher than ever, due to the stress you've placed on your body, and the thyroid medication the doctor prescribed for you hasn't helped at all.
The good news is there is a natural solution that can help, and you'll begin to see and feel a difference within the first 24 hours. Take this thyroid health check, and you'll realize that your slowing metabolism is not the only thing that's being affected by your aging thyroid gland.
I had all but three or four symptoms on this brutally long list. Most of us don't even realize how badly we have been affected because most hypothyroid symptoms are not visible to others. Often, doctors and family members/friends think these symptoms are in our head until they become affected by them.
These symptoms are real and are hurting more people than the healthcare system will admit. They are rampant in people suffering from undiagnosed or mistreated hypothyroidism. Sadly, blood tests don't tell the entire story because most blood tests aren't sensitive enough to pick up on this dysfunction. Don't rely on them as an end-all answer. It's important to know what's normal for your body and what isn't. This can be more difficult if you've always struggled with hypothyroid issues like I have my entire life. I thought these symptoms were normal until I learned differently.

Instead one is only able to pinch a thick, large portion of skin.)
- Constant thirst and water won't quench it

Over our lifetime, our thyroid hormone levels will fall by 50%, and most of us will experience a 50% decline in our energy levels, yet your thyroid hormone level will remain in the laboratory normal range, the low end of the normal range, but still in the normal range. Despite the fact that you may be uncomfortable and experiencing a host of symptoms from hypothyroidism and due to your decline in thyroid hormone production with age, your doctor will tell you that you are in the normal range. But you are not feeling normal because your thyroid hormones have declined as you have aged. It's not healthy, nor do you want your thyroid hormones to be in the low normal range.
Think of it this way... we would never accept our car's gas mileage being decreased 50 percent! We need and want to keep our thyroid hormone levels in the optimum range for good energy and feeling healthy so you can be productive at work, thrive at home, and enjoy life.
The solution? Decrease the stress in your life, exhale more, slow down, and let go of things in your life that aren't important. Eat less of the foods that are healthy, but not good for optimal thyroid functions and may even be causing some of your thyroid issues, like juicing or eating kale every day.
The thyroid requires very specific nutrients, in the right amounts and in liquid form, so it can properly absorb the nutrients it needs. Begin to utilize them, so you see improvements quickly. One of the tricky aspects of treating under-active thyroids is they severely affect how our body absorbs these nutrients, so most of the protocols we try don't work. If we are continuing to consume excess sugar and eat too many thyroid-inhibiting foods like kale and soy protein, we negate the benefits of treatments.
It's like pouring water in a glass that has a hole in it. I like to take a holistic approach for this reason and address the problem from every angle, from a diet, exercise, and spiritual belief perspective. If the patient doesn't believe, they won't usually do what's needed to get better.
We need to take charge of our health and wellness, and it starts with proper nourishment for our thyroid. It's best taken in extract form because it's the most potent, and easiest for our bodies to absorb. The answer? LynFit Thyro-Boost!
LynFit Thyro-Boost is a unique, Non-GMO, custom blended liquid supplement specifically designed to help fight symptoms of an underactive thyroid while reigniting your metabolism, allowing you to feel better fast.
Thyro-Boost is an all-natural cutting-edge product that combines the most important potent ingredients, all backed by scientific research. We use the most advanced methods, such as a cold-extraction process, to refine the most potent, bioavailable form of these ingredients possible.

- Help alleviate dry skin, constipation, and hair loss associated with hypothyroidism
Prescription medications for thyroid issues simply treat the symptoms; they don't address the underlying issues. LynFit Thyro-Boost addresses the underlying issues and symptoms you face when you have an under-active thyroid such as intolerance to cold, constipation, hair loss, dry skin, and inability to lose weight, just to name a few.
LynFit Nutrition specifically designed Thyro-Boost with all of this, and you, in mind. Thyro-Boost can be used in conjunction with your prescription medication. It may actually make it work the way it should. Thyro-Boost nourishes the thyroid and supplies it with the fuel it needs to work properly, allowing it to do its job vs. doing the work for it, which eventually backfires and makes things worse.
Aren't you tired of being sick and tired? Now you don't have to feel that way! LynFit Thryo-Boost, the all-natural support in a fast-acting, easy-to-take liquid formula that will boost your thyroid to keep it functioning at an optimal pace, so you begin losing weight again — and keep it off!
