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.
