    Weight gain is a common symptom of thyroid disease… Unfortunately, as many people see those pounds begin to pack on, they are often advised to start a low calorie diet. The problem with following a low calorie diet is that we often become deficient in macro and micronutrients when we reduce our calorie intake, and over time, we may be inadvertently sending our bodies a message that we are experiencing a famine.
