- First you need to figure out how many calories you burn on a "normal" day with no workout or cardio. Vito has some info here on how to calculate it.
- Log food accurately (weigh it if you have to!)
- Next log workout and cardio under the activities tab
- Log sleep
I think after you do this you'll probably see that you really weren't as deficient as you though. If you are that deficient, then you have something else going on. Either too much water retention from sodium, medications, etc, and something else. I'd assume that being regulated on thyroid meds would give you put you in the same boat as someone without a thyroid issue?
