A friend of mine told me about this new book about a month ago. It was by a neurologist I have great respect for, David Perlmutter. I have heard him speak in person several times and basically trust anything he has to say. I nearly fell off my chair when I read some of the things he was saying. There was a new marker - using an old test - that could reveal information that could help me help my patients even more. I got so excited, I started testing all my current patients for it.
All of these conditions have this marker in common:
The average thyroid gland weighs about as much as a tablespoon of almond butter. But the thyroid gland, unlike almond butter, has an almost infinite impact on the way your body functions.
Every single cell in your body has thyroid receptors. If you don’t have enough thyroid hormone, there are things in your body that just won’t work. Like an unplugged toaster, it’s not going to work no matter what you do. It will only work if you plug it in - just like your cells, they will only work if they’ve got some thyroid hormones plugged in.
For me, energy is the currency of life. I have spent too many years after having kids struggling to get through the day. My number one goal everyday is to have amazing energy. One of the ways I do that, is to choose a breakfast that will set me up for success.
Oscar Wilde once said, “To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.” If you’re struggling to lose weight, it’s time to think about your relationship with yourself.
If you’re not in love with you, no amount of self-improvement will change that.
