Hey Karen

Cleaning up your diet (organics and no fast or junk foods, artificial sweeteners, limiting sugar), a clean source of water (avoid soda), getting a moderate amount of exercise, finding time for yourself and ways to manage stress, adequate sleep, keeping your thyroid numbers and TSH is a spot that works for your particular body... are all important to health and weight loss with thyroid disease.

Another aspect of diet is avoiding foods that your body doesn't like... including some foods that may be considered healthy for the general population... but which just don't get along with your particular body.

One way to identify those foods is if you retain water (a sign of inflammation) and find you have gained a few pounds the next day... or if you start to bloat up in your stomach area ( a sign that the bacteria in your gut are increasing because the food you've consumed is not being digested properly), from 20 minutes to hours after consuming this food.

In this the case, you must eliminate it.

Let us know what we as a team can do to help you on your journey.
Welcome.

Wellllll, negative side affects? That is what I call weight gain when very active. You may want to tweak your caloric intake up... Yes, I said up. Sometimes us hypos find we do better with more calories instead of less.

Do make sure you are keeping track of what you are eating so you are not going overboard. I wish you well.

With this team read, read and ask questions.

Hey everyone... I'm a graduate student in psychology with hypothyroidism. I had a lot of trouble getting diagnosed (almost a year) and I'm still not feeling awesome. In high school, I weighed 135 and was maybe a bit too thin for my height, but now I'm at 188lbs, despite eating healthy and exercising as often as a graduate student can. I am now trying Alli to help a bit; haven't had any negative side effects so far.

I like to play tennis and soccer, read, write, play video games, and do research. I'm a teaching assistant this semester and I am pretty excited to start. I get my Masters after this semester and then I'm off to... wherever accepts me. I've put in applications and now I'm playing the wonderful waiting game.

I don't really know what else to say.

"I expected more. Where I come from... you're soft."

It is important to be strong on the inside as well as the outside.
