Do you have, or suspect you have thyroid problems? If you are still overweight even though you've tried diet after diet, and you feel tired and sluggish all the time, then this book could be your saviour. This international bestseller is a mine of information for both hypothyroid and hyperthyroid sufferers. If you have discovered, or suspect, that a low-functioning thyroid gland is causing you to pack on the pounds then this internationally bestselling book will be a godsend. It explains that even with medication from your doctor you are still likely to pile on the pounds. To elevate this Mary Shomon has helpfully outlined a number of approaches to help as she recognises that there simply isn't a one-cap-fits-all programme. For example some sufferers are carbohydrate sensitive, others find they actually gain weight on an Atkins-type diet, or they might find they only lose weight if they lower their calorie levels. The book is also packed with other information: when to eat; thyroid-damaging foods to avoid; metabolism-supporting herbs and supplements; and information on prescription weight-loss drugs. Her case histories make this a friendly and illuminating read too.
