I see alot of people who are like...

"I just lost 45lbs on the atkins"...

and they seem weak and brittle

a healthy diet (ie: not drastic) should not leave any side effects

Well I think I maybe a victim of too much dieting that is why I am raising the question. I come to the point where I am starting to think I have a slow thyroid.

What do you weigh and how many calories have you been dieting on for how long?

Well I recently was on a cut. But for about 3 weeks. I was doing 2.0. I guess from to much prior cutting I have not been able to drop bodyfat. I think instead of cutting weight I am puting on weight. In addition I used to be really obese. I dieting for a year. I think somewhere in that time something in me got screwed. :help:

dieting for too long or on too few cals will effect the thyroid

you could go on maintenance cals for two weeks and reverse the effect
