LOW THYROID FUNCTION
Proper thyroid function is essential for Weight Loss
To test yourself for an underactive thyroid, keep a thermometer by your bed. When you wake each morning, place the thermometer under your arm and hold it there for 15 minutes. Be still and quiet. Any motion can upset the temp reading. A temp of 97.6 F or lower may indicate an underactive thyroid. Keep a log.
A low temperature may also indict a parasitic infection. Parasites use a variety of defense mechanisms to disable our immune system in order to protect themselves in the body. One of these is to release substances into the blood stream which lowers body temperature. Many of the bodies enzymes only work at specific temperatures. (note: I am including all organisms not naturally occuring in the body, i.e. fungal infections, tape worms, etc.)
These items are known to suppress Thyroid Functions:
Fluoride & Sodium Fluoride: Fluoridated drinking water
Food contamination from pesticides
Toothpastes, Teas, etc.
Chlorine: also found in some tap water.
The lack of Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) suppresses thyroid function
Mercury, which leaks out of Amalgam dental fillings
Rape seed (Canola Oil)
All Soybean products: Some Protein Supplements
Many processed foods
Iodine: while a small amount of iodine supports Thyroid function, too much will suppress Thyroid functions.

Your Ideal Caloric Intake
WARNING: The human body cannot lose more than 2 pounds of actual body FAT per week. The rest will be lost in muscle tissue, organ tissue and water weight. Losing muscle tissue is counter- productive. It will slow your metabolism and will cause you to be able to eat even less when your diet is over.
To lose weight at the rate generally recommended as safe by the American Medical Association (2 to 3 pounds per week for men and 1 to 2 pounds per week for women), follow the steps outlined below.
Mark the number of pounds you want to lose each week Line C _______.
For each pound of fat you want to lose, you will need to reduce your weekly intake by 3,500 calories. To find the proper calorie amount for your ideal weight loss program, reduce the number of calories in your diet appropriate for the number of pounds you plan on losing each week (Line C).
For example, if you want to lose 2 pounds a week, reduce your total weekly caloric intake by 7,000 calories (2 X 3,500 = 7,000).
Record the total number of calories you need to reduce from your weekly diet to reach your weekly weight loss goal (number of pounds X 3,500) on Line D ______ .
Divide this amount by 7 for the number of days in the week (i.e., 7 divided into 7,000 = 1,000 calories). This 1,000 calories equals the amount you must reduce per day from your current daily calorie intake to lose 2 pounds per week.
For example, if your ideal daily maintenance intake (from Line B, Part 2) is 2,250 calories, to achieve 2 pounds of weight loss per week, your reduced daily calorie intake would equal 1,250 calories.
Mark your correct weight loss intake on Line E _____.
You now know that to achieve a 2 pound per week loss of weight, you must limit your food intake to 1,275 calories a day or less while maintaining your current exercise level.
