8 Reasons Your Fatigue Could Be Thyroid Related

You’re not feeling like yourself. In fact, you’re feeling downright exhausted and it’s impacting your daily life. You might think that you’re just going through a phase or that you need more sleep, but what if your fatigue is actually being caused by your thyroid?

1) Poor Mood

One of the first signs that your fatigue could be thyroid related is if you find yourself in a constant bad mood. If you’re feeling irritable, anxious, or even depressed for no reason, it could be due to an imbalance in your hormones.

2) Feeling Cold

Another early sign of thyroid problems is feeling cold all the time, even when others around you are comfortable. This is because an underactive thyroid can cause your body temperature to drop.

3) Weight Loss Resistance

If you’re eating right and exercising but still not seeing any results on the scale, it could be due to a thyroid imbalance. An underactive thyroid can make it harder to lose weight, even when you’re doing everything right.

4) Hair Loss

Thyroid problems can lead to hair loss, which can further contribute to feeling tired and run down. If you notice that you’re losing more hair than usual, it’s worth checking in with your doctor.

5) Fatigue

Feeling fatigued all the time is one of the most common symptoms of thyroid problems. If you find yourself struggling to get through the day or falling asleep more often than not, it’s likely due to an imbalance in your thyroid hormone levels.

6) Imbalanced Hormones

One of the most common causes of fatigue is an imbalance in your hormones. This can be due to a number of different factors, but if you find that your energy levels are constantly fluctuating or that you’re feeling more tired than usual, it’s worth checking in with your doctor to see if your hormone levels are off.

7) Gut Issues

Another common cause of fatigue is gut problems. If you’re struggling with digestive issues like constipation or diarrhea, it can lead to feeling exhausted. This is because your gut health is directly linked to your overall health and well-being.

8) Pain

Lastly, pain can also be a sign of thyroid problems. If you’re constantly dealing with headaches, body aches, or fatigue, it’s worth checking in with your doctor to see if your thyroid could be the culprit.

Calories In and Calories Out. Do Calories Matter?

Calories in calories out. Doesn’t work for you. Right? Are you someone who struggles with a health condition, chronic fatigue, thyroid dysfunction, a lot of stress in your life or some kind of underlying condition? You don’t know what’s wrong with you and you decide to lose weight.

So, you follow the influencers on TikTok and other places and tell you that all you need to do is reduce your calories, but you feel like that’s not working for you. It’s way more than just calories. I promise.

Calories In and Calories Out Model

The calories in, calories out model is the most basic model of weight loss. The theory behind this model is that if you want to lose weight, you need to consume fewer calories than you burn. If you want to gain weight, you need to consume more calories than you burn.

If you’re eating a very low-calorie diet, you might lose weight in the beginning, but eventually your body will start to hold on to fat because it thinks you’re starving. When you cut calories too much, your body also starts to break down muscle for energy. You might lose weight, but you’ll also lose muscle mass and strength. Plus, when you cut calories and don’t exercise, you can end up with a slower metabolism.

So even if you do lose weight, it’ll be harder to keep it off in the long run. Calorie restriction can also lead to unhealthy behaviors like binge eating. When you finally do eat something, your body is so starved that you end up overeating and then feel guilty about it.

The calorie in, calorie out model is also flawed because it doesn’t take into account the quality of the food you’re eating. your individual metabolism or the energy you expend throughout the day. The calories in, calories out model is a very simplistic way of looking at weight loss and weight gain. It’s also not accurate for everyone.

Are all Calories Created Equal?

500 calories of gummy bears is not the same as 500 calories of broccoli. The gummy bears will spike your blood sugar and insulin levels, whereas the broccoli will give you fiber, vitamins, and minerals.

The quality of the food you’re eating matters more than the quantity (calories).  Processed foods, refined carbs, and sugar can all lead to weight gain, even if you’re not eating more calories than you’re burning. These types of foods are less satisfying and can lead to cravings and overeating.

Plus, different people have different metabolisms. Just because someone else can eat 2,000 calories a day and lose weight doesn’t mean you can too. We all have different energy needs based on our age, activity level, and other factors such as a thyroid dysfunction.

So if you’re struggling to lose weight, don’t be discouraged. It’s not just about the calories. There are other factors at play.
