Agreed on the misinformation. That could also include the above paragraph. Less caloric intake = less T3 (in a general sense). The body is the most prudent investor/spender we will ever know. If it takes less currency in, it will spend less. Are there exceptions to this? Of course, but most are further over the head of readers here than the simple topics we are currently discussing. You're assuming anyone in caloric restriction is employing the use of a cheat meal or cheat day to rejuve the thyroid when 98% of dieters aren't on the same page you and I might be with academic knowledge and anecdotal experience.

You are a fit old buc mang!

Yeast is damned good for you so DO NOT dump out that last little bit of your Sierra Nevada...suck down that slime.
Brah, there better be some man food at your vegan eateries when I come up to charge with you in Vacationland.
