    Have you thought of fasting intermittently? Fasting speeds up your metabolism! While you're not eating your body kicks in and burns lots of fat in a short period of time. Your muscles get used and you tone up.

    Try fasting one day a week. You'll be surprised how easy it is once you decide to give it a go.

    It might sound silly, but you actually function better when you are not eating. You think more clearly and you have more energy. Exercise is easier as well.

    You could start by pushing your breakfast back to lunchtime. Then next time you do it maker it later, then later.....until you've reached your goal time and you can eat again!

    The thing I like about it is that I can still eat normally the rest of the week. And it’s amazing how much better a decent meal tastes when you haven’t eaten all day!

    Build a lot of lean muscle mass, drink plenty of (cold) water, eat 5-6 small meals a day, eat thyroid stimulating foods (seafood and fish, avocadoes, bananas, coconut oil), avoid foods that inhibit the thyroid (especially avoid soy), running or swimming, get enough sleep
