Has anyone lost between 60-100lbs?

Question

Maybe a strange question but… has anyone lost between 60-100lbs while struggling with this disease without weight loss surgery? If so what helped you most? I had someone seriously say to me you may need to have surgery. ?

  1. Sounds like your thyroid is over active

  2. 90 lbs lost in a year with going gluten free alone.

  3. I’m not sure where you are from and I’m not promoting this company or program but Metabolic Research Center’s diet is a high protein, low carb and low fat way to lose weight. I lost 63 lbs a while back. If you want more info, you can go to the website or I have some copies of a couple of the different plans. I have sarcoidosis and hashimotos and I was told NO way to any type of weight loss surgery.

  4. I’ve lost 50lbs since June, just with gluten-free and supplements. Overall total weight loss 155lbs but it has taken a LOONG time. Before I knew what was going on with me, I weighed 323lbs. I did a lot of weight loss programs. But going gluten-free, soy free, mostly dairy free, and my thyroid meds in a good place have been the most beneficial. Vitamin D for me was a game changer. The higher my D is the better I feel. Its a crappy disease to deal with. Your puzzle pieces will start to fall in place, keep trying new things and commit to them at least 6 months.

  5. Not saying you need surgery but dont rule it out entirely…i had surgery over a year ago and its the best thing i did for me….but everyone is different i hope you find what works for you

  6. I’ve had the surgery but when others lost 100 in a year I lost 200 in a year because after surgery my diet was keto and my best friend same issues has hashis lost 100 in a year with keto

  7. I’m just starting out but know of someone who lost 45kg on LCHF

  8. Keto or AIP

  9. I’m getting ready to have surgery on Jan 18….after starting meds last year I gained 20 and now holding….I can lose about 15 lbs, but can’t keep it off….such a struggle

  10. I’ve gone from 335 to 255 since July. I started with the Whole 30 diet. I cut out grains and legumes as they are triggers for me. I still eat dairy but no soy or processed foods. Please know that even with surgery, you can gain all the weight back and then some. I personally know four people who have died due to complications from bariatric surgery. It’s not a magic cure.

  11. High protein, lower carb, clean eating and a variety of workouts

  12. Yes I have lost 70 lbs, I have had success with keto, aip and paleo. You can do it!! I would try these first before going under the knife

  13. I switched to NaturThroid after a decade of levothyroxine, and went GF…..lost 20% of my body weight. If you seriously want to lose weight, sugar must go! In ALL forms. Good luck!

  14. I tried everything but nothing was working and my thyroid wouldn’t regulate either. When it finally did I decided to do the HCG shots. I’m down 26 lbs. It’s naturopath approved and if you do it right you won’t gain the weight back. After I am done I can stick to the clean eating boost it starts you off on. It’s VERY restrictive so it’s a crash course in gluten free if you aren’t. I did it over the holidays and gave in a couple of times or I would have lost more.

  15. I lost 47 lbs within 6 months by walking/moving more (at least 10,000 steps daily; 30 mins fast-paced walking included in those steps) and portion control. I do watch that I don’t eat over 100 mgs of bad carbs like bread/pasta per day. So far I’ve kept it of by continuing to eat better/healthier and keeping up the moving. I still need to lose 33 lbs to be within the height/weight range….but I’m working on building muscle as my next step to firm up loose skin. I also just started to use FasciaBlasting to help firm up that skin. I hope I’m allowed to mention this. If it’s not permitted, please let me know, I’ll edit comments to removed them.

  16. Healthy diet that works for your body, and exercise that works for your body.

  17. An observation from speaking with friends who have had “surgery”, you still have to eat a certain way (just like you would if you didn’t have the surgery and wanted to be healthier) and in several cases (I’ve noticed) there are some things you can NEVER eat ever again or else there are major adverse problems…..and the real deal breaker for me is in many cases depending on the type of gastric surgery you have it is NOT reversible. I am not knocking people who do these surgeries….they are way more brave than I, but for me, I want more options of food choices…if I want to be bad and eat bad, I can. I know of two people personally who have had surgery who lost weight at first, but regained it and are still obese. To me that says that it’s all about what you put in your body.

  18. I’ve lost 50lbs since June, just with gluten-free and supplements. Overall total weight loss 155lbs but it has taken a LOONG time. Before I knew what was going on with me, I weighed 323lbs. I did a lot of weight loss programs. But going gluten-free, soy free, mostly dairy free, and my thyroid meds in a good place have been the most beneficial. Vitamin D for me was a game changer. The higher my D is the better I feel. Its a crappy disease to deal with. Your puzzle pieces will start to fall in place, keep trying new things and commit to them at least 6 months.

  19. Agree 100% with what you doctor said! I walk at 5:15 in the morning during the workweek!

  20. I lost 60lbs. GF has helped me. But eating whole foods. Staying low fat and no processed foods. As organic as you can. Supplements. No overboard snacking.

  21. Low carb high fat and I have lost 50 pounds in 5 months

  22. Don’t do surgery unless it’s your only option. I have many friends who have had it and are having so many complications it’s so sad. Make sure you’re eating enough and eating balanced meals..make sure you’re not deficient in anything like vitamin D, etc. Walk daily…and try to work out if you can. I do these things and can’t lose weight either but I’m not so overweight I would need surgery..but I do still understand the struggle. Please try everything else before you do surgery. I’m gonna try the suggestion of one of your commenters with the Metabolic Research Centers diet.

  23. I lost 20 pounds in 2 months being on T3 and the right amount of meds to keep my weight gain under control

  24. What T3 are you using?

  25. 32lbs since end of September going gluten and dairy free

  26. Google the New York Times article on the surgery.

  27. Before I was diagnosed (but I’m pretty sure I was hashis as I had symptoms then) I had a severe reaction to a new antidepressant that made me very anxious, unable to sleep nor eat for nearly a whole week. I would go on really long walks to walk off the anxiety but that didn’t work. When the doc changed my meds again, the anxiety eased but my appetite was still low (rare for me), I used this to start a diet. I was 104kg (229lb). So my diet comprised eating 5-6 times a day, but small amounts and a small dinner. I kept up the long walks daily, minimum 5km (3.1miles). I removed all sugar and coffee and pasta (because it’s my food drug) and I lost 33kg (72lb) in 25 weeks. In my recent research, I’m wondering if I went at all slightly hyper then. But my thyroid wasn’t even on my doctor’s radar then, so I have zero idea! But I did go a bit nuts with it. I walked 10km on Christmas day to ‘earn’ my dinner. Lol.
    When you diet to lose weight you will feel hungry initially. For some people, even me, this is really hard. But you adjust. Eventually the idea of eating what you previously ate, or in the same amounts is not appealing.

  28. I have to add I started to suffer from Chronic Fatigue about year after that second pic was taken and I have gained it all back, then lost another 10 kg late this year. This time around it is much slower as I just don’t have the energy or desire to exercise.

  29. I had severe headaches on t3

  30. Yes, lost 100 then gained back 3 yrs later. To lose rode bike 50 miles a week, and tracked (counted) all calories and carbs.
