    Becky, while a few people (very few) might have hormonal problems, others can develop a sluggish thyroid by eating high fat, high empty carb fast food. I know of a woman who dropped seventeen pounds in ten months by just by trading fast food for wholesome homecooked meals consisting of salad, salmon, and sweet potatoes. She also wrote that she’d saved money by cooking at home.

    Sounds completely reasonable. The thyroid and other hormones control appetite, cravings, fat storage, metabolism and nearly every aspect of one’s ability to lose weight.

    Ladies, except for a skinny latte, I never eat fast food. I always carry my own lunch in a cute little “refrigerated” bag. For lunch, when I go to L.A. for a photo shoot, I pack a tuna salad– I use half a water-packed can of tuna, diced vegetables, 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts, and 2 tablespoons fat-free yogurt as a dressing and place this over mixed greens. I enjoy this with a small whole wheat pita.

  4. Excellent lunch idea, Reba, and I know the way you eat keeps your thyroid hormones in balance. You do two other positive life-style things– getting a good eight hours of sleep and putting in regular gym time. Many of you know that Mary Alice swims every single day.

    Well, besides exercise toning our bodies and making us NICER because of the release of the feel-good brain chemical serotonin, the flab maker hormones (insulin which gets out of whack with excess blood sugar and the stress hormone cortisol that is linked to abdominal fat) are kept at bay. We need good carbs– whole grains and vegetables such as sweet potatoes, for instance.
