Do you have a slow metabolism? Here is how you find out!

movement Aug 03, 2022

The thyroid is the most powerful fat burner in your body.

The gland secretes powerful hormones that control your metabolic rate, digestive function and thermogenic capacity. It is like the drummer of a Viking ship that sets the pace for the rowers such as the heart, gonads, adrenals and digestive system.

There are many factors that will slow down the pace such as:

·         High estrogen levels

·         Low testosterone levels

·         Environmental toxin: xenoestrogens, chemicals, pollutants,

·         Heavy metal exposure

·         Tap water – fluoride

·         Nutrient deficiencies – selenium, iodine, zinc

·         Poor immunity

·         Exposure to bacteria, viruses

·         Stress

 

For many of us, these factors are unavoidable and can contribute to a slow thyroid, also known as hypothyroidism. Some of the signs and symptoms of hypothyroid are:

·         Weight gain

·         Difficulty losing weight

·         Fatigue

·         Dry skin

·         Fluid retention

·         Menorrhagia (heavy menstrual flow)

·         Cold hands and feet

·         DOMS

·         Constipation

·         Difficulty concentrating

·         thinning hair/hair loss

·         Depression

 

Check your Thyroid at home with this simple test!

Supporting your thyroid hormones can increase your fat burning capacity by increasing your body temperature by burning fat and generating heat. To get an idea of the pace of your thyroid start tracking your temperature each morning before you get out of bed. You can purchase a thermometer from your local pharmacy. Take your temperature in the same place every morning such as under the tongue or armpit and write down your reading for 5 consecutive days. Ideally, you want to be sitting around 37 degrees for ultimate fat burning capacity.

Ladies, during ovulation (day 14 of the menstrual cycle) your body will naturally drop in temperature as you release an egg from the ovaries. Keep this in mind when taking your temperature. I recommend starting during days 1-9 of your menstrual cycle.
