Thanks for posting. My question is pretty vague. I've been feeling lethargic/tired/mood swings/rapid weight gain/ etc. for months now. I'll go get some bloodwork done tomorrow.

10x body weight in cals a day (so around 2000 to 2150), 50/30/20 protein, carb, fat ratio.Originally Posted by refrieddreams
Only lean foods. Chicken Breast, Tuna, White Fish, etc. Whole grain carbs (brown rice).
Also add udo's choice oil (all 3 omegas - EFAs).
Weights 3-4x a week. Cardio 5x a week. Cardio (bike, running, etc.) 30-40 min. with elevated
pulse of 155 bps.
Weights are and always have been heavy. Rep range of 8-10.
Haven't lost a pound, actually gained. Which isn't a problem, except for the fact that it is fat
(increase waist size). Any ideas?

Take your temperature first thing immediately upon rising in the morning.
You could do a google for hypothyroid. There is a ton of info on it out there. Some symptoms are cold extremeties, low body temperature, thining eye brows, just to name a couple.
All my life I've never stopped to worry 'bout a thing,
Open up and shout it out, an' never try to sing,
Wondering if I've done it wrong,
Will this depression last for long, wont you tell me,
Where have all the good times gone.
