Why Low Thyroid

Hormone
(a.k.a. a slow
metabolism)
makes fat loss
IMPOSSIBLE
Those who have low
thyroid function or low
metabolic rates (a.k.a. slow
metabolisms) have a bit of
a problem on their hands...

THEIR BODIES DO NOT


WANT TO LOSE FAT!

It’s not just a situation that's like...

“oh, if you have low thyroid function, it’s a


little harder to get fat loss.”
It’s not just a situation that's like...

It’s more like...

“when your body is in a low thyroid state,


it is essentially impossible to get fat loss.”
But then again, if you are reading this
presentation, you probably already knew that your
body is extremely resistant to losing fat.

So you’re probably
thinking “yeah, tell me
something I don’t know!”
Okay, so let’s get into the
stuff you don’t know...
First, it’s important to
understand that even in
regular people without
hypothyroidism or low
metabolic rates, achieving
lasting fat loss is very difficult.
Exercise interventions cause minimal
to no fat loss for nearly all people.

Dieting---while very effective for weight


loss initially---has an over 95% failure
rate in achieving lasting fat loss.
But those with low thyroid
function or slow
metabolisms take being
resistant to fat loss to

A WHOLE NEW
LEVEL
But those with low thyroid
Their bodies are
function or slow actually wired into a
metabolisms take being hormonal state that
resistant to fat loss to quite literally
MAKES FAT LOSS
A WHOLE NEW VIRTUALLY
LEVEL IMPOSSIBLE.
Starve yourself
all you want and
do all the
exercise you
want, but your
body is going to
find a way to still
manage to hold
on to that fat.
So what is this hormonal state in hypothyroidism
that makes fat loss so incredibly hard to achieve?
To explain the changes that take place with low
thyroid hormone, I want to do it through the lens of
what is known as…

“Stubborn Fat.”
What is “stubborn fat”?
What is “stubborn fat”?
Your body tends to be really good
at storing fat in certain places,
and tends to be really RESISTANT
to losing fat in those areas.

Right?
The Common
Areas of
Stubborn Fat
in Men and
Women
These are the areas that are the This is called STUBBORN FAT
FIRST to store fat, and the LAST to
go, when we are losing fat.

We may be very lean, but still


have this layer on this trouble
area that stays put no matter how
much dieting and exercise we do,
right?
WHY
is stubborn fat so
stubborn?
2 Major Reasons Why Stubborn Fat
is Stubborn
2 Major Reasons Why Stubborn Fat
is Stubborn
1. Receptors on those specific fat cells
Stubborn fat cells have lots of
Alpha receptors alphas and few betas
"Bad guys"
(keep fats trapped BLOCK fat burning
inside fat cells)

Beta Receptors -
"Good guys"
(release fats so they Start fat burning
can be burned off)

So how does this
relate to
hypothyroidism or
having a slow
metabolism?

When you have low

your body fat is
basically locked away
in your fat cells and
CAN'T GET OUT!
Low levels of thyroid hormone
actually do far more than just that:

A body that cannot and will not lose fat


If you are hypothyroid are
you want fat loss, the first
thing you must realize is
that you CANNOT achieve
fat loss while your body is
in this state.

It is basically IMPOSSIBLE
With low thyroid
hormone, your body
fat is basically locked
away in your fat cells
and
CAN'T GET OUT!
No amount of DIET
and EXERCISE will fix
this
Do all the exercise you
want, and starve
yourself all you want.

It’s just not going to


happen.
All that will happen is
you will:
•torture yourself

•slow your metabolism even more

•worsen your hormonal balance

•become moody and irritable

•feel incredibly fatigued (and


awful in general)

•lose muscle instead of fat


And even if you do manage to
starve yourself into a bit of fat
loss...

You will bounce right back to


your current level of body fat
within a few months, and be left
frustrated and defeated once
more.
