Best Early Morning Workout Tips! Discovering The Best Early Morning Workouts Tips. I work out at 4 AM, 7 days a week.

I love it and always look forward to starting off my day being energized and clear headed after an intense early morning workout. While I love doing it now, working out very early in the morning doesn’t come naturally to me. Remember, your morning workout is something you should want to do every day, and that includes your workout days. You don’t want to overdo it and be tired for the remainder of the day, or worse, work out so hard that your gym performance suffers.

As a general rule, your morning workout should be under 15 minutes and not loaded with reps. 5. Pre-exercise: As a general rule, eat a snack or small meal one to four hours before exercise.

A good choice is carbohydrate-containing foods with moderate to low protein and fat. The carbohydrates in the meal will help fuel your workout, but with lower protein and fat, digestion will be quicker, reducing the possibility of gastrointestinal.

A great way to mix them up: Do one of the first three workouts early in the week, then choose a second from numbers 4 through 7 later in the week, at the track.

I find that the best time to exercise is first thing in the morning; it’s too easy to tell yourself that you’ll do it later in the day and then find excuses not to.

  • I need help, I was diagnosed hypothyroid and graves about 4 1/2 years ago after having my son… a ton of things have happened in my life and I’ve always struggled badly with depression and anxiety. I have full custody of my son right now and I am so stressed and just want to give up and hating myself that I’m pushing everyone I love away.. these last few days I have literally just been like a zombie, i was on levothyroxine and it didn’t help so I’m on NP thyroid.. I thought it was helping but my hair is still so dry and falling out, I’m constantly tired, I don’t work a job and my mom basically carries me financially. I severely need help, I want to give up.

  • Ok…so I feel like I can totally relate to ALL the symptoms and tomorrow I’m supposed to be getting my blood test results to know what I have, and I’m kind of nervous because I really feel like I have Hypothyroidism…but atleast I know that I won’t have to go through it alone, since my mom has hypothyroidism.

  • Hello, you are a great and effective coach, very pretty girl with perfect body, you are radiant and motivating, the most for us men to look at you is that you have a sublime and beautiful camel toe that gives your videos a very sexy and ultra-pleasant side. Thank you…

  • 1. Plan the day before ( food and reps)
    2. Gym or clothing day before
    3. Prepare Breakfast the day before
    4. Set alarm way earlier
    5. Sleep early
    6. Music to get you pumped
    7. Skip breakfast
    8. Coffee
    9. Warm up the body
    10. Nothing else just workout

  • Does it matter if the walks are done in fasted state or not? Would fasted walk be more beneficial towards weight loss for example?:)

  • I workout at home most mornings before 5am without eating breakfast or drinking coffee. If I had to go to the gym I’m 100% sure I wouldn’t workout. Great tip on planing your workout cause some morning I’m like what workout dvd should I do? Then I’m like I think I’ll go back to bed and workout later in the evening, and I don’t because I’m too lazy.

  • i never comment on videos. but i am 22 years old and my blood work came back & i am borderline hypothyroidism. i am so scared. i go back in two months for another blood test to see if i need to start medication ect. what is my life expectancy? will i struggle? i’m terrified but i am so happy you’ve made these videos for me to get more insight on!

  • Im actually crying watching this video. I was diagnosed with hyper 15 years ago post partum, had RAI and now am hypo. I was put on medication but wasnt very good to take it throughout the years, I suffered a mini stroke in November 2019, doc couldnt find why it happened (no blood clots or bleed on the brain) but im convinced its because I wasnt taking my meds. I just feel completely deflated. My levels are “normal” now but the fatigue I have is just so annoying. I just want to feel normal. This week Ive started to try sort out my diet and try eat all the healthy food, but its so confusing. I got an anxiety attack during the week from trying to take it all in. Im so glad i found your channel and insta, its very informative and will try your workouts next week. Thank You.

  • Hi Katie. I am so happy i found your channel!! Great workout and tips always. You are the best. Very positive and it is contagious!�� Always looking forward to your next video. ����‍♀️��️‍♀️��‍♀️Thanks. ✌

  • I had hyperthyroidism and they treated it when I was 18 with radioactive iodine which as it often does, completely killed my thyroid so now I’m stuck with permanent hypothyroidism. My levels were fine for years but this year, turning 30, my levels are shockingly low (or high? It’s opposite, ya know what I mean) so now I’m just going to go to an endocrinologist and use videos like yours as a helping hand.
    Edit: I found out I had hyperthyroidism while I was taking my senior year finals and felt giant lumps in my throat, I was skinny, but I was always sick, had heart palpitations, passing out, anxious and paranoid to the point of having breakdowns. I don’t like having hypothyroidism but I’d take it over hyperactive any day.

  • so when do you eat? I am trying to make morning training as well but I am a beginner because I want to lose weight. And I have work at 9am to 7pm, should I eat before or after workout and how much should I be eating?

  • Thanks a lot! After work I´m always so exhausted and my workouts aren´t that great anymore and that´s why I´m considering to always do it before going to work.

  • I’m so happy to see this video I feel so misunderstood all the time. I explain to my co-workers that If I couldn’t stay asleep all night that I can’t function during the day. It’s crazy to see how a normal person who is tired and has had the same amount of sleep and they can take it but if I don’t get sleep I literally can’t think I go stupid and feel like I’m going to fall asleep standing up

  • “it effects your entire metabolism… just a little bit of a big deal” i am also hypothyroid and this made me laugh out loud because its so true

  • Just found your YouTube/everything and fell in love! I downloaded the app and just got the hypothyroidism meal plan! I’ve been diagnosed with hypothyroidism since I was 18 and now I’m 27, I’ve had weight gain all through these year and my body looks like your before pictures. I’ve always used my diagnosis as a excuse too and have tried to change but nothing has worked or kept me going. Thank you for motivating everyone/me and your story and guides motive me to make that change. Looking forward to follow this path you paved for us fellow ladies with hypothyroidism!

  • I was diagnosed in 2nd grade. It’s a HUGE struggle. My levels can never stay the same, blood work every few months, doctors appointments 4 hours way, always irritable, tired, and weight loss is hard. I’m so hateful, but I literally can’t help it.:(

  • Dude, I wake up at 4 am, eat then wait til 4:50 and bike to the gym 4 miles away. I get there by 5:20 am and workout til 6:30 and shower in the gym then bike to school. After school I bike to work from 4 to 8 bike home, get there by 8 30 pm. Shower drink my shake. Sleep and repeat by 9 pm.

  • Hi Carlo! I’ve been watching your videos since June when I decided to change my lifestyle and decided to lose weight. I was weighing 96kls and I was struggling to lose weight but i always listen to what you said about patience and disciple. Im now weighing 86.10kls and I want to continue this lifestyle change until I achieve my ideal weight. Thank you for all your advice!

  • In the past I never drank caffeine before my workouts. Lately I’ve notice when I drink green tea before a workout my performance has improved and I have more energy when I workout.

  • I’ve got some hypothyroidism and just realized it today. Thank you for such a compassionate helpful video. What a great resource to find during a trying time.

  • You were saying that it’s crazy that people who didn’t have protein shake/coffee pre workout but I’m over here like YOURE the crazy one, I need a small pack of peanut butter crackers with a baby banana as a pre workout snack because if I don’t get anything solid in my system then there is no way I am getting through my workout

  • Hope to see a night time/wind down routine someday. Loved the morning routine that you did a while back. When you get to see that people who are in the “limelight” actually living lives like everyone else, it really brings people back to reality and not the glitz and glam you see on t.v. I am a morning person, but I get up at 3am for work. I work a very physical job for 12+ hours a day/80+ hours a week, before I get to come home or run errands. I don’t get much time at home and can’t workout in the mornings since the rest of my household is asleep and I have to wear a uniform for work. Always interested to see night time ideas since I miss so much during the day and don’t get much time for sleep. Keep up the great work!:-) Your Mama is such an inspiration and so it is nice to see you keeping up her quality of work while adding your own/modern twist on things.

  • Hi!! I know this video is years old, but I was just diagnosed with hypothyroidism two weeks ago and am a college athlete and currently a sophomore. These videos along with the diet ones have really helped me. The last few weeks adjusting to meds before I go back again in a few weeks has been difficult returning to school. Thank you so much for sharing this!!

  • great video:). The cruciferous vegetables are super important to avoid and it’s not something that is talked about too much! Do you find corn is problematic for you? Corn is another goitrogenic food and it wrecks me every.single.time……Thanks for the great videos!

  • I have hypothyroidism and I like to drink beer every now and then, is this harmful or a okay thing to do? My medication says I can drink alcohol on it just not to close to the time I take it.

  • I know you posted this a few years ago but I just found this while researching about my thyroid. I’ve had hypothyroid for years and haven’t been able to lose a pound after gaining 50 pounds in a year. I have felt so defeated and really want to give up, but seeing you and hearing your story makes me want to keep fighting. Thanks for sharing, just followed your Instagram ❤️

  • I caused hypothyroidism from over training. If I start training too much I start gaining now. I use to be super lean before this. I eat whole foods but cant seem to lean back out…any thoughts?

  • I realize this video is older but I just stumbled upon all of your videos. I have hashimoto’s thyroiditis/hypothyroidism. I was diagnosed when I was about 13 and put on medication. I had my thyroid removed about 25 years ago. I still have all of the symptoms and have to take medication daily. I’m overweight and can not lose weight!!!! The pounds just keep on coming �� I need help!!

  • I got diagnosed same age and I am 23, it’s fustrating that doctors don’t address gut health and dieting and it’s something as of the past year that I am now working really hard on but it’s definitely a never ending journey because unfortunately our bodies hormones aren’t regulate and tracking how much u specifically burn (metabolicly) as an individual with hypothyroidism is almost impossible. But thank your for this content u have Expressed much of the same thkngs I have been experiencing. I won’t give up even when the weight gain and loss flunctuates ��, I hope that our condition can be studied more and more accessible to receive medical guidance not just pills we have to take for the rest of our lives but knowledge and tools to better our over all health

  • I have hypothyroidism and recently diagnosed with PCOS too. The struggle is I real!!! You are such an inspiration. I have ordered your hypothyroidism meal plan. Can’t wait to get started ��

  • Your good Carlo! You must love what you do❤
    So ture morning routine is important
    First thing I wake up at 5am, drink 24oz of warm water with a little lemon and pinch of salt, coconut oil pull for 10 minutes, stretch for 15 minutes, 10 min meditation, one cup of black coffee with a pinch of salt clean my house by 7am I’m walking or running follow by 1hour weights. Thanks again Carlo

  • Thank you for sharing your story about hypothyroidism and addressing things the doctors never tell you i.e. nutrition. You’ve inspired me tons! I’m going to incorporate some of your tips into daily life and see how I get on.

  • I’m 20 now, when I was about 16 I had a feeling that I had hypothyroidism and when I told my doctor he told me I was too young. When I finally convinced him to texts me he said it was a bit low but not enough for medication. I am on medication now but still trying to figure out how to lose weight while having this issue. So many different opinions from different people.

  • I have recently been diagnosed with hypothyroidism. But unlike people getting cold, I’m always hot. Like it feels like I’m sitting in a sauna suit. I also forget things quickly. What worries me is that my cycle is 34 days late. I’ve taken so many tests, and they’re negative. Never had a cycle this late before!

  • Sick advices man youre my new favorite fitness youtuber. The style and explanation are just on point and its just straight to the cut. They are also very easy to understand and very grounded in reality which is what i find unique in youre vids. I hope ill be here when the subs get to like 500k plus

  • Thank you for your video. I’ve been intermittent fasting for 4 years now and I love it, but I’ve just recently started working out, every one’s says is recommended to work out while still fasting, and I love it I get more energy and feel great! But I’m 5’9 and weight 120pounds I don’t have a lot of breast, I’m building muscle quickly, but as I know that the body uses fat for energy, I’m afraid my breast will disappear eventually if I keep it up. I love working out while fasting but I don’t want to lose breast size, what do you recommend?

  • Thank you and av been working on all your previous recommendations(exercise,intermittent fasting,diet change and walking 30-60 mins after my meal)and I have lost a tonne of weight in just a period of 8 weeks.God bless you.

  • Sleep and meditation is also important for people with hypothyroidism. It balances the cortisol and helps loose weight. Take care all.

  • I got diagnosed today, I’ve had health issues MY WHOLE LIFE… very dry skin, high testosterone as well, high prolactin, now this…. I AM UNDERWEIGHT… is anyone else here with problems GAINING weight?

  • Why are you talking about motivation? I’m always tired and I can’t train as I used it, I can only do half now. You clearly didn’t change much with dieting because they keep changing your meds. ����‍♀️

  • Today I finally found out what was wrong with me. I’ve suffered through all of these symptoms for years. She took more blood today and told me she’ll be calling me in a couple days to start meds. I’m so excited to get to feeling better. I’ve been on a weight loss journey for the last two years and I’ve lost 51 pounds so far UNTIL last month. Last month without changing my diet at all I gained 10 POUNDS! I track what I eat and exercise regularly. Plus now I have elevated cholesterol and apparently, that happens often with hypothyroidism. Now I’m even more motivated to make progress and can’t wait to get to feeling better.

  • last year after diagonised i found that i have hypothyroid! Before that i was having irregular period and in February last year i had severe heavy period that i needed 16 pads in a week! Anyway I have been taking levothyroxin for one year! I had consulted a nutritionist for my diet chart. But still Sometimes i feel very weak, fatigue, i get severe headache, shoulder pain and back pain! I am trying so hard to lose my weight but everytime i fail ��… And whenever i try some Cardio hiit workout my whole body aches badly that i cannot continue for next few days! These things are decreasing my motivation! This disease is a curse for me! I have been following diet chart and walking Everyday for an hour but my weight has increased ��!

  • I just recently got diagnosed, my appointment to get on medication is in two days and I am so beyond excited because the hypothyroidism has drastically changed my life for the worst and I’m excited to get back to being my normal self.

  • Thank you for these posts. I just found out I have Hypothyroidism and I don’t feel relieved. I feel scared and nervous about starting medication. I had lyme disease in my 20 ‘s and when I take medication it makes me feel inflamed in my face. I’m 41 and now this just feeling overwhelmed.

  • i’m 20 and just got diagnosed last year but my doctor suspects that i first developed it when i was around 11 or 12. it’s affected my life so much and i try to not use it as a crutch or complain about it but it’s so hard to manage. i gained 60 pounds in between 6th and 7th grade which is when she thinks i developed it. and since then the only time i lost weight was when i went on a zero carb zero sugar diet where i was literally eating less than 1200 calories a day (i was absolutely miserable but it’s the only thing that’s worked) i’m a big foodie and i’ve used food as comfort a lot of times and it’s pretty scary to do a total lifestyle change regarding my diet and exercise. my friends don’t understand and get annoyed when i talk about it so i’m happy i found this video. this has inspired and taught me a lot. and recently i’ve gained even more weight and have just been feeling awful and i’m up to 180 pounds. my regular doctor that would actually take me seriously has stopped taking general patients due to covid so all i could get done was a blood test but i didn’t get a call back about the results so i’m assuming none of my levels changed. do you think i should try to find a doctor elsewhere?

  • Hormonal balance is VERY important. The human body is like a machine,if something is wrong its performance is impaired. I saw huge improvement by started taking thyroid medication,energy levels went threw the roof and exercise recovery time reduced significantly.

  • Katie, I have an important question. Do I NEED to have a protein shake after a workout if I only want to lose weight and not gain muscle?

  • Just got diagnosed yesterday with hypothyroid and I finally know what was wrong with me but I’m scared and overwhelmed, still trying to digest all this,,, I’m glad I found this video thanks

  • Thanks for making this low impact routine! Could you make a few more morning routines? I don’t like to do just static stuff from waking up and being so stiff, and it’d be nice to have a few more routines to choose from in the mornings!

  • I’ve literally tried everything to lose weight for the last 5 years I gained almost 30 lbs and I have only lost about 5-6 lbs but I workout daily and eat super clean I was just told by my naturopath that my thyroid is low and so now I’m thinking maybe something else is going on. I’m so frustrated and just feel like giving up! I had to stop working out like crazy cause that was making it worse and I’m freaking out that I can’t workout. But you were still able to lose all your weight and keep it off. I’m going to get my blood work done ASAP.

  • Hello�� Thank you for sharing this video. I am about to be in tears�� I found this almost by accident but I feel as if I have the same problem. I really have a dislike for going to the doctor, and so haven’t been to one since my last child was born over four years ago, but I think this is the motivation I need to make an appointment. Since my youngest child was born, my body has been going down hill and I attributed it to getting older but I am only in my thirties. Despite my best efforts, my appearance has completely change for the worst. When I look in the mirror I see a stranger looking back. This is not me. Your story has motivated me to take action! Thank you��

  • I’m so glad I subscribed to your channel! This video did help me out so much! ������ I’ve been keeping track of what I eat and try to exercise as much as possible, but sometimes it’s hard to keep being motivated. There’s a lot of days where Im so tired I don’t want to do anything ��

  • Only thing i would say is your body needs something in its system before workout, if you dont want to wait the hour after a meal then just have something like a banana high in cards for the energy needed for your workout and or a sports drink.

  • Another winner! Great topic. I’ve been IF since August and started training for an Ironman. All my workouts are fasted, but they are starting to get longer and I’m feeling the bonk near the end. Any insights on this?

  • This video gave me so much clarity. Im currently getting blood work done for my thyroid and its SCARY! Being dependent on medication has always been a fear of mine, but this video really helped me out and gave me some great insight on what to expect. Its great to know I’m not alone! Thanks you so much!

  • I always hated yoga until I found “Yoga with Adriene” on here. She is entertaining and an excellent instructor. Since finding her, I’ve been doing yoga almost daily for the last 4 months!!

  • Thank you so much!!! i’m 14 and was diagnosed when i was 10 and now i am depressed because i have almost every single type of symton and the biggest one was weight gain.your video has explained me so much about what to do

  • Thank you so much for this. I was diagnosed two weeks ago and it explains so much. I’ve been dieting for years and just been able to maintain my weight. Whatever I’d gain would stay on, and the other symptoms can be so embarrassing. I can’t wait to get a dosage that works for me and even just cutting out so many things in my diet and adding light exercise is making me start to feel my new normal.

  • I want to start working out before breakfast because I want to get it done quicker than waiting an hour after I eat. Problem is I use breakfast to wake up but maybe this’ll help me get motivated.

  • I HIGHLY recommend her workout programs. Katie, I’m on week 3 on the fit calender. I’m already seeing beautiful results and a high rocket with self confidence. I never miss a workout of yours and I’ve used many of your recipes. I can’t thankyou enough. ��❤

  • Hi Katie,
    I just stumbled upon your account and this video and wanted to thank you for sharing your story! I started gaining weight when I was 3, and went to multiple doctors throughout my life who diagnosed me with Hypothyroidism. No doctors would prescribe me Thyroxine because they said I was too young. I wasn’t prescribed Thyroxine until I was 17 or 18, and I’ve definitely experienced similar things to you in regards to feeling as though the medication isn’t doing anything. I’ve had gaps from taking it however ultimately I know my body needs it and it’s super important. I’ve definitely used it as an excuse over the years but have recently found something that is working for me. I’m definitely going to follow you along for more tips and tricks and check out your guides. I too believe/d that I will just always be a “bigger” girl, but I don’t want that for myself. Again, thank you for sharing!!

  • I liked it, but you breathed way too fast! When i wake up, my breath is slow, so when i inhale or exhale it takes almost dubble of the time you did it

  • I wear a brace for drop foot & my balance isn’t that great because of it. How do I get to where I’m disciplined enough to be at the gym everyday.?????????

  • Thank you so much for doing this! My doctors are not helping me, my levothyroxine doses are messed up. I am like 10 days late on my period and super constipated agh! But I am glad I found you doing research and get inspired to approach it holistically!

  • 2 major reasons that he didn’t say
    1. Workout buddy
    2. Group class (not necessary but really helps especially if just starting)

    So I do these group workout classes at 6:15 twice a week and 90% of the reason why im consistent is becausd I have a buddy who also goes, and I feel guilty if they go and I don’t. And also since its a group class I don’t feel crazy for working out at 6 am. Those two days I do it I feel way better throughout the day.

  • am a hypothyroid patient n lost 15kgs n from 1 year am at same wt i got to knw keto worsens thyroid! vil intermittent fasting help me to reduce 6 more kgs?

  • You have inspired me to get back to the gym in the morning. You answered a lot of questions I’ve been having. I like how you are straight to the point with your videos, short and straight to the point. I have subscribed. Thanks!

  • Hi… my only plan is to at least run every morning. Since I don’t have much time, is it okay to go shower immediately after a run?
    Thanks… ☺️

  • This video helped clear up a bunch of stuff for me, I just got diagnosed with it and this video made me feel so much better about everything!

  • Hi! Im 23 and was just diagnosed and I’m feeling very anxious. Thank you for your video! I only have mild symptoms but I’m worried about being on meds for the rest of my life.

  • Put the phone with an annoying alarm on full blast on the other side of your room. You’ll have to get up mad af to turn it off. Then put the gym clothes over the phone, you’ll put them on after turning off the alarm, then profit. Off you go.

  • So true.. first thing I think about when I wake up is how busy I am and I don’t have time for the workout. I end up justifying it and saying I’ll work out in the evening. When the evening comes, I’m too tired and I end up not working out at all. Sucks

  • Any suggestions on what workouts i can do? I don’t really care what types they are; i just want to build atleast some muscle and wake up before school to do them. Thanks

  • 6:30? I wake up at 4:45, gym from 5:30 6:30 work by 6:45 finish work at 4 go hom eat sleep repeat I’m only 18. If I can do it you to #noexcuses

  • I’m up at 03.45 and warming up by 04.00 and finish my routine at 04.45!!! but the really bad point is I don’t eat till 09.00 my first break at work:(

  • Wait, so when you’re feeling anxious and shaking, does that mean your prescription is too high??? I take levothroxine and sometimes I do feel anxious and shaking… I thought it was just me…��

  • I’m gonna start doing this cause, I got assignments and projects due at school in a couple days and we’re short staffed at work because one person got fired and the other is on vacation

  • Really enjoyed your video, very valid tips. Thank you. I’m really trying to change my life but struggling. Hopefully I can apply your advice to my life and get to the gym in the morning. It’s the only time I’ll get with a young family.

  • This is gold!! Go out buy Insanity, P90x something you can do at home… I sleep in my workout clothes…. and I drink a protein drink after my workout in the morning.. the more organized you are the easier it is…. to workout in the morning wake up 1-2 hours before you normally would… do atleast 45-1 hour in the morning…. this guy is awesome.

  • One doctor told me I had something wrong with my thyroid. This was 2 years ago, she never went into detail though.. I had a regular blood test a couple months ago to see if I had it but nothing came up. I have all the symptoms. I’ve been in a calorie deficit for a long time now and I have seen no difference. Its making me depressed because I’m trying so hard to lose weight but nothing is happening. Is there a different test involved?

  • I was just recently dx with hypothyroidism. Haven’t met with my PCP or an Endo dr yet but will next week. Do u recommend seeing a nutritionist? Thanks!

  • I love this! Like honestly most of these styled videos give you really vague guidelines to follow that end up with you just picking and guessing what you think is right. This is short, sweet, clear cut and easy to follow while ALSO being extremely informative. I don’t normally click the like button (or comment for that matter), but this one deserves it for sure

  • Awesome warm up! I just noticed the knee over the ankle in the yoga section is that ok to do that? maybe cut it out in future videos? GREAT WORK WOOWOO!:D

  • You know it was lonely with every one here how can this be get you to like me? I’ve ask and asked you like older men I’m the one didn’t won’t to be with you was afad

  • Another superb quality vid by Carlo. Double thumbs up dude. You’re the best! Anyone looking to lose weight and lead a healthier lifestyle should check out all his videos. I guarantee none will bore you! ��

  • Thank you for sharing your story. I was just diagnosed with hypothyroidism this week, and I am trying to find out more information on my own.. very helpful!

  • I was just diagnosed a couple of days ago. I was just getting a routine blood test done, and it came back that I have hypothyroidism. Great. A lot of symptoms that I’ve had for the last several years make a lot more sense now, though. I’m starting my medication tomorrow, 100mcg of levothyroxine, which I guess is a typical starting place. It’s almost embarrassing to me considering it’s almost universally a disease that women get. I can’t find a single comment on your video from a male struggling with it, lol! The only thing keeping me from losing my mind over the diagnosis is knowing that I’ve likely had it for a long time and just didn’t know it. The only 2 symptoms I’ve had are weight gain and how horrible I feel after eating processed foods, like almost anything from a drive through, and sometimes feeling really tired even with plenty of sleep. The weight gain I always chalked up to the fact that I’ve been a drinker for years and have never stuck to a diet consistently for more than a few months, and I’ve also NEVER gotten enough sleep, usually get between 5-6 hours of sleep per day. So… I never had a reason to suspect it was due to my thyroid.

    Several years ago, I DID go on a diet that consisted of a veggie/fruit smoothie every morning along with eggs and turkey bacon. I would usually skip lunch, but if I DID have lunch it was usually low in calories such as fish like Tilapia or Salmon along with some canned green beans or heavily boiled / steamed broccoli. For dinner, it was almost always baked chicken with sides such as black beans, brown rice, green beans, broccoli, and sometimes I would just make a cauliflower pizza. After just 3 months, I went from a starting weight of 235ibs all the way down to 180ibs. I did exercise, but it was minimal. Since I have a bad back, it’s kind of scary to try and do many cardio based workouts, so I do a form of yoga called DDP Yoga instead. Basically, a semi-clean diet, along with calorie counting (between 1,200 1,500 calories daily), and a little bit of exercise and I dropped a ton of weight. The problem is, when I got off of the diet and went back to old habits, over the next several years I not only gained all of the weight back, but now I’m 30ibs heavier than I’ve ever been. So… I’m going to attempt to do the same diet again, but this time it sounds like I am going to have no choice but to stick to it, and now I have no guarantees that the weight will drop off this time, which sucks. I guess I’m gonna find out.

  • Lets just binge watch. This is definitely what I needed though. You eat raisin bran? lol. And gotta try the 15 Minute early alarm. ugh. I gotta snoooooozeeeeee

  • Thank you so much!!! Because of this video, now I have a different way of looking at a healthy lifestyle and dealing with hypothyroid! ������

  • Hey! I think I missed it in the video but what workouts would help most in weight loss? Being quarantined just made me skyrocket in weight. My diet isn’t really an issue. Ive been 145 to 120 to 155 all in a matter of months. I was diagnosed when I was in high school and still don’t know what’s going on �� any advice would be much appreciated! ��

  • I have a variety of random symptoms that the doctors have never been able to connect. I turned 18 about 6 months ago and I have been gaining weight like crazy desire no changes in exercise or diet. I’m a runner and I run about 5 times a week. At my last appointment, my doctor mentioned hypothyroidism because it runs in my family and i’m getting bloodwork in a couple of days to see if I have it.:( I’m really scared and nervous for how it is going to affect my life

  • You definately change my life carlo since february and i love the result..thank you is not enough..dont stop inspire the other people for losing weight.god bless and stay safe always take care lovevyah..

  • to be honest I was so happy that I found your channel, and I wanted to try a hashimoto diet before getting on medication. But I was so disappointed when I saw that you are taking 50$ for the meal plan. We are all struggling with this, and this kind of information should be free and available to everyone.

  • I’m a 20 year old male, just got diagnosed with hypothyroidism within the last week and was put on medication within days of discovery. As a kid I was super short and skinny, Often being in the bottom 20 percentile for my age in both categories. It wasn’t until mid-way through highschool I noticed my body wasn’t functioning the same way anymore but I didn’t know why. In recent years getting my health back on track has been a major concern of mine, it wasn’t until I sought out a doctor and had my first generic blood test (to set a baseline) that I had the information I wish I’d had sooner. Makes you wonder how many people out there have a tough time with their health but don’t have the means to find out if they have an underlying condition working against them. I’m just glad to know what I know now, and hope It will get better now.

  • very informative video, thank you Katie.
    I was there too and can not stress enough what a huge, negative impact stress can have on your thyroid function. Getting rid of all the stress factors I do have control over, was a huge gamechanger for me and my clients <3

  • I always look forward to your videos.. they’re so helpful �� I always like your videos before even watching them haha..this is the first time I commented so you might not recognise me ��
