Thyroid problems such as hypothyroidism can cause you to be tired a lot, which means you will be less active and burn less calories throughout the day. So once you have been cleared by a physician, seek out a fitness professional that is familiar with your condition that can create a program that works best for you. One thing a fitness professional needs to consider when creating the program is the clients ability to do long bouts of exercises at one time, since hypothyroidism can cause you to feel tired and general discomfort. If you had a goal to exercise for 30 minutes a day, you may want to consider splitting that up into three 10 minutes sessions throughout the day, so you can better manage the exercise without getting too tired. From there, you can slowly work your way up to more intense exercises to help you burn even more calories.
