comment slouched shoulders get better when i open my hands
I asked because when you open your palms and "roll your thumbs out" away from your body, it tends to bring your scapula (shoulder blades) down and back which opens up the chest. But otherwise I don't know why opening the palms without correcting the scapula makes a difference. In addition to the answer you got, you may get some helpful exercises for posture from this question/answer.

comment Endurance activities and carbohydrates: when are they needed
I don't have the expertise to answer your question directly, but I think you might find, "The Art and Science to Low Carbohydrate Performance" helpful and informative. They point out that with keto-adaptation "carbs can be reduced to an optional nutrient for athletes" as the body stores about 2000kcal of carbs compared to >40,000 kcal of fat. They also discuss the use of VESPA, a fat burning fuel catalyst useful for prolonged events. (Note - the link to the book is from our site's amazon store.)

comment Weight Loss with Hyperthyroidism
Have you worked with a registered dietician to address your diet? Given that you have hyperthyroidism you should have individualized diet instruction imo.

When you open your palms are your palms facing forwards or backwards?

comment Cat -Cow Stretch
I agree with @rrirower to see a physio who will direct you in your exercises esp. since it does not come naturally to you. One session with a physio will probably save you time and give you better results in the long run. They will evaluate tight muscles, joint limitations and muscle weakness to give you a specific program.

@AlexG did you check out your chest pain with your doctor? Different problems can cause chest pain and only your doctor can diagnose it for you.

comment Should I go run slowly or not at all
If you are "very thin" and your goal is "to become bigger and fat" I'm not sure that running will help you achieve that goal without adding resistance or weight training and diet.
