I suffer from hyperthyroidism.  So, losing weight and feeling good have been a challenge for me for awhile now.  I have been on synthroid for almost a year now but it hasn't help with the fatigue, lack of energy, the pounds and inches that I just couldn't seem to shed.  I have tried pretty much every thing on the market I could think of in hopes of just feeling better.  I would research things on the internet and go to my nearest healthfood store and buy whatever it was I had found hoping it would give me and my metabolism a boost.  Nothing seemed to work.  I even tried some well known name brands that my friends sword by.  A lot of money wasted and still no energy and no weight lost.  Four weeks ago tomorrow, I decided to give one more thing a try.   Something I'd seen floating around my facebook page and a few of my friends were trying with great sucess.  Of course, they didn't have the thyroid issues so their body didn't have to work twice as hard as mine but I was tired of being tired so I decided to try ONE more thing.  My main goal wasn't really to lose weight.  I was just tired of feeling run down all the time and wanting to slip into my PJ's and go to bed as soon as I got in from work every evening.  I was skeptical of this product because I had been let down soooo many times before but I'm overjoyed to say I was proven wrong and have felt better in the last month than I have felt in a very long time!  I've lost 4 pounds and many inches, too!  It feels great to actually wake up feeling refreshed every morning and to want to get up on the weekends and clean house!  I have more energy now than I've had in years!  I'm so excited and I want to share this with everyone who may suffer from the same alliment as I did!  There is HOPE!  It has truly been a blessing and has changed my life!

You have my attention. What is this product that sounds too good to be true?

Your ability to lose weight can definitely be affected by that thyroid. But why is the thyroid not working better? And that is where you could have a host of other things that you may want to change. What I have found is there are a whole array of different things that can help. And diet? Don't believe in diets. Never have. And will send you to a book that I love and found so useful for me and my body.  Check it out. First watch video. Then make up your mind... Hope this helps.
