It appears that I am pre-hypothyroid. I have some raging symptoms including fatigue, swelling, etc that lead to thyroid testing and my FTI is off but not enough to warrant medication. So I decided to go see a highly recommended chiro/nutrition dude, filled out a four page questionnaire and had an evaluation. He gave me some high quality supplements and suggested I come off wheat and corn. Sounded good til it sunk in. huh? I eat a TON of wheat (corn not so much). But I am going to do it for a month and see if I feel any better. This one is going to be a true challenge for me! I usually eat wheat (whole wheat which sounded so ultra healthy) at breakfast, lunch, dinner and both snacks. Which, if I really do have an issue with wheat, would explain why I feel so darn horrible. meh.
So my new challenge, in addition to exercising 5 days a week and keeping it in my recommended calorie range, is to try a no-wheat no-corn diet for 30 days.
And I'm on day one.
Gotta start somewhere.
