DonnaLIZ67, did you have any luck finding information? I researched the same topic a couple of years ago without success.

I can't eat soy tempeh, seitan, tvp and lots of other "meat analogs," so I couldn't find a way to work it out nutritionally.

You are worth it!

Look at my blogs and logs, I'm living that life. The majority of what I eat is fruits and vegetables, with yogurt, whey, and tofu to add in the protein. I know they say that soy is whatever for the thyroid....well I have Hashimoto's and nothing I eat is going to get me off the meds, so what is the worst that can happen???? An increased dose? So what. Besides I use common sense on eating and I bet anything their view on soy will be rather like that switch on eggs. The science is still trying to figure it all out and the meantime i'm eating what make my body sing! I can't seem to get away from the yogurt as I find it help with all the bloating issues from eating large volumes of vegetables.

I need to eat low-carbish for health reasons (strong history of diabetes in the family). So I've been eating a South Beach-inspired diet for a while now. But I have also been reading a lot about the benefits of a plant-based diet, so I've been trying to move in that direction.

I'm finding it difficult to do both, without eating just "rabbit food" all day and feeling like I'm starving all the time.

Oh yeah - and to further complicate things - I understand I'm supposed to stay away from soy because I have thyroid issues.

I'm sure there are people here who are managing this balancing act. Any advice for someone just starting out?
