Insulin effects.: When Insulin resistant, you are making more Insulin than normal to keep your blood sugar normal. High Insulin levels have other effects, such as increasing hunger (tough to resist this but it's possible), and opposing the breakdown of fat. It's insulin's job to make fatty acids go into fat cells to be stored, so it's harder to lose weight in the face of high Insulin levels (but not impossible). ...Read more

Don't Try!: It is physiologically to lose more than 1.5 to 2 Lbs/week! On a strenuous diet, you will lose pounds of water first.

You'll significantly increase your risk of diabetes. Eat small, frequent meals. EXERCISE. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes if treated: If hypothyroidism is adequately treated you'll have as much thyroid hormone as a normal person ; thus be able to lose weight as easily as a normal person (which is not that easy).Unfortunately few doctors treat it adequately;thryronorm only provides T4 ; most thyroid patients benefit from adding t3 (liothyronine) or taking natural thyroid.See http://abt.Cm/18gpb3a ; http://bit.Ly/1ccxy0r ; http://bit.Ly/15k26u8. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
