I'm hypo and gluten intolerant. Most of the wheat replacements I can't eat either. My thyroid is as good as dead so I don't care If something influences my thyroid because In my case there is no effect positive or negative.

I eat quinoa and amaranth and (brown) rice products. I can't stand buckwheat so I don't eat that. He taste buds have a say as well ;)

Eating 45% carbs mostly by fruit, vegies, legumes and some quinoa and rice works charmes for me.

No diabetes in my family so fruit etc. is no problem. But I can see that being a problem when you are at risk. Being hypo and being at risk for diabetes seems to bit each in other in the you know what and gluten intollence doesn't make it easier.

I saw this 12-pg article/document and thought of you Jenduke: Combining Diabetes and Gluten-Free Dietary Management Guidelines

Consider signing up here and asking your question of other celiacs "with" diabetes for their suggestions, too.

Also, Mike Adams (the guy I call the "food police") had diabetes and reversed it. He's not into gluten either. He likes quinoa though. Visit his sites:

www.healthranger.com
www.newstarget.com

Maybe he's radical for some, but that's where I am: needing radical. Everyone's different. Good luck.

If you are worried about diabetes, I would stay awway from all the processed GF stuff out there. Rice flour gives a huge glycemic hit. I indulge, but find that if I eat it I don't lose any weight at all, even when I'm working out every day.

Atkins didn't work for me. I felt great, but didn't lose any weight. The first week looked good, but after my water weight leveled off, I lost nothing in the first month. Amazing how quickly our bodies adapt. This was before I was diagnosed Celiac, so no wonder I felt good on it =)

I lose weight when eating raw. It is perfect for warm months, but I find that in the winter it is very difficult for me to stay warm on this diet. Especially with hypothyroidism. Also, I sprout and try to grow a small bit of veg hydroponically, but come woefully short of supplying the foods I need. When I read how far organic produce is shipped, I get edgy. My health isn't going to turn around by eating organic grapes shipped from half way around the world. And *^&%!, sometimes you just need a bit of steaming veggie soup! Did I mention that I tend to get emotional over food?

I do best when I eat lean proteins, lots of fruits and vegetables and starchy carbs every other day. For those choices I use sweet potato, cauliflower, corn, brown rice and beans. These may be too much of a GI hit for you, same for the fruits. Sticking to berries will give higher fibre, lower GI, and more phytonutrients for your buck.

Ere long I bare fruit, and throve full well,
I grew and waxed in wisdom;
word following word, I found me words,
deed following deed, I wrought deeds. - The Havamal

It is recommended for those with thyroid trouble to eat a fair amount of good carbs. Atkins severely limits the good carbs one can eat. If a hypo person doesn't eat a good amount of good carbs, it can slow thyroid function. It is the same with severely restricting caloric intake, a no no for those with thyroid trouble.....and pretty much anyone for that matter.

***That doesn't mean that your carb count has to be super high though! It just means that in addition to veggies, we need to be eating some whole grains and beans as well.***

I'm hypothyroid and gluten intolerant. The South Beach Diet has been just amazing for me. I've now lost almost 30 lbs since October last year. So, I would definitely recommend SBD. I've done Atkins before as well and with the very very low carb intake, it affects the thyroid in a negative way. SBD isn't a low carb diet, its a low glycemic index diet especially once you get into phase 2 of the diet.

I am also hypothyroid, Celiac, and with a family history of diabetes...fiber without pushing the gluten and sugar buttons is crucial. I do flaxseed meal in anything I can put it in, walnuts, celery, and other fibrous veggies, and there are actually some "cross-contamination free" oatmeals out now which can be tolerated by a very large percentage of us Celiacs. Lara's Cream Hill Estates (from Canada) and Bob's Red Mill are two suppliers. Hope this is of some help...

I try to get the highest fiber gf choices I can find. Some good ones:
Mary's gone Crackers - 120 cal, 3g fiber
Bob's Red Mill Hearty Whole Grain GF bread - 190 cal, 4g fiber
Tinkyada Brown Rice pasta - 210 cal., 2g fiber
Rice bran - sprinkle on cereal or yogurt, mix in shakes, add to baked goods
It is harder to get the right amount of fiber when you are gf, actually it's hard for anyone trying to eat healthier because so much of our food is highly processed and labels can be misleading.
Good luck!

Which thyroid book do you have? I know Mary Shomon, thyroid guru, recommends three diets. Here's a link to a review of the book, or you can check amazon, too:

iews/thyroid-diet.htm


I'm fat and have hypothyroidism and celiac sprue. I've tried Atkins and couldn't do it - kept reaching for fruits and veggies, yogurt ... and chips :). I lose weight when I eat raw diet, which is another transition. Since I'm new to raw diet, I've not yet spent time learning to dehydrate yet, meaning I'm still eating "regular" gf crackers and grains ..but not much. I must make up the calories elsewhere: the weight is not melting off ... course, my thyroid's off right now too ... I've been gaining. blah! :)

hi jenduke

I am hypothyroid,(hashimoto's) unfortunately I'm not loosing any wieght...but then I'm not gainig any either... I really need to loose only about 12-10 pounds which have settled in my middle. I just started meds 8 or so weeks ago, so that might be why I haven't lost wieght. I am gluten sensitive and have been on a gluten free diet since May.

I have no problem finding things to eat. It was hardest when I went to Italy and had to pass up all the great pasteries and pastas. But not here, when I am cooking for myself. I can eat all kinds of rice, quinoa, ricecakes which are like a cracker. There are also noodles made from rice, and quinoa, I like the asian noodles the best. Sweet and white potatoes. IN general I avoid starchy stuff, cuz I dont like how it makes me feel afterwards.

Feel free to look at my food choices on my profile. Gotta run!

Yes, I know there is a hypothyroid group, but dealing with two issues brings up concerns that most of them just don't have.
Question: To those of you in the same boat, my thyroid diet book says to eat lots of whole grains. What do you eat? Diabetes Type II runs in my family, so I hesitate to get too many carbs, although I know whole grains are better than processed carbs.
