How to Lose Weight on Antidepressants, Thyroid Medication or Chemotherapy.
I was performing one of my Periscope broadcasts yesterday on what to eat to stop cheating on your diet, when someone asked me one of my favorite questions.
I’m on chemo, any suggestions?
Often times when someone is gaining weight because of their thyroid medication, antidepressants or chemotherapy they ask me if they should really follow healthy nutrition.
This is an unusual question because the
solution has always been and always will be...
The Password is FOOD!
Healthy food and a lot of it.
When someone asks me this question tells me right away that they don't understand the vital role smart nutrition plays in the body.
If you're on Chemo that's when you need healthy nutrition the most.
This question reminded me of Jess who had chemo and radiation treatment and was battling cancer for several years. Once she started her customized nutrition program her energy levels increased her metabolism sky rocketed and the body fat began to melt off.
But most importantly she has been cancer free the last year.
Here's the take home point.
Your situation is not unique.
You're not a special snow flake.
Believe me, there are thousands of people fighting the same battle you're fighting.
You're not alone.
The reason I know this is because just in the population of my online clients who've followed their very own customized nutritional program I've had dozens of similar scenarios
I've helped with people with hashimotios, pcos, ulcertative cloritious, ibs, graves disease, hypothyroidism, type II diabetes & fibromalyga.
And undergoing chemo.
And that's a good thing.
Because you can use these other clients I've worked with as motivation.
You can use their own story to catapult and spring board your own success.
Take Candice for example.
Candice has inspired hundreds of women who have hypothyroidism. Candice has to have monthly blood tests performed and takes her thyroid medicine daily due to her hashimoto's disease.
She is an ICU nurse and nurse practitioner who lost forty one pounds and and eight inches off her waist in just under a year.
And she did it while gaining six pounds of rock solid muscle in the process.
Candice was able to lose 41 pounds of body fat and keep it off despite being on thyroid medication daily. She did all this by following her customized eating pattern.
I've actually had people tell me that the reason they can't eat healthy is because they have graves disease or hypothyroidism.
The truth is that the only chance you have at burning body fat and sustaining weight loss while taking thyroid medicine is by eating smart healthy food in the right amounts.
I like hearing about people who faced and beaten the same trials & adversity I face,
because it's a confidence builder that you can overcome and triumph too!
But actually seeing the results that other people made is what really resonates and will inspire you to break the chains of doubt and blaze no trails to victory.
Candice ate huge healthy meals to achieve and sustain inspirational fat loss even though she had to take daily medication for her thyroid disease.
They were just like you yet they overcame their "valley" experience by eating their customized diet to find major success.
During your "valley" experiences of life is when you need smart nutrition the most.
You need smart nutrition the very most
I need you to understand that your situation is not unique.
The reason you need to hear that is because people like to use their plight as a crutch.
It can be used as an excuse to allow addictive pleasures to linger in your diet.
Wanna know how I know all that?
Because about a third of all the folks who've followed a nutrition program from me fit that category.
And each and ever one of them was able to make the best progress of their life.
You're probably going to think I'm crazy for saying this but I don't care if you're on antidepressants stacked with thyroid meds;
You can still achieve the best results of your life as long as you never eat small meals and always fill your belly with healthy food.

...can't lose weight because of your thyroid medication, can't burn body fat because of your chemo or can't stop eating because of your antidepressants.
