So i went to the doctor the other day because I was severly depressed.
I was perscribed an anti-depressant(yes I know I do not want to be on it, but my dad forced me to take it)
I also had my thyroid levels check. My t3 is low. Everything else is normal, so I am on 25 mg of liothyronine(sp?). My total t3 was 53.
This brings up a question that I hope you all can help me with...
I do not want to stop working out by any means, but I am weight lifting and with weight lifting in order to progress with strength you have to eat more. So I plan on doing IF with the leangains approach, eating 2700 calories MWF and then 1800 TTHSS. Do you think that this will still work to drop bodyfat? I do not want to gain any weight by any means(I am not overweight, I am 165ish and 6'1''). I have gained a little bit of weight, but that was due to over eating crap while battling this depression I am in. I know that my low thyroid levels will contribute to my depression, and I am hoping that if I am feeling better when my levels are normal I can wean off my AD(which is Wellbutrin btw).
I am scared that if I do this I will gain weight with the high carb days 3 days a week, although I hear that carbs are needed for a healthy thyroid. Does this seem like a healthy approach with things while being hypothyroid?
