I've been feeling pretty crappy lately and noticed that it is nearly impossible for me to take off weight despite my workouts being intense and regular.
My diet is based around paleo high fat/proteni low carb/sugar diet. I eat well I take my multi and exercise daily...
Its a mystery why I feel so fatigued etc so I went to get tested... since my mom and grandma both have hypothyroid I was sure I had it too.
Fell into "normal" ranges for this stuff and the docs (I saw two in nyc... can provide names if you want ones to avoid) offered no guidance beyond "you should do more aerobics... lower your calories... and you got bad genetics..."
