And ive tried so many things and im currently trying lipozene and today is actually my first day!so i have my fingers crossed! But my question is is the product effective?

99.9% of over weight people have NO THYROID problem. about the same as the overall population. whining would not help get the correct dosage of thyroid medication- see the doctor regularly. get blood levels taken every 6 weeks for the first 6 months then 2 times a year for 1 year then yearly - if you gain weight OR lose weight and you have not changed your exercise habits or eating habits - call your doctor and get it right- go see andn endocrinologist.

I don't know who "a crock of crap" is but until you know what you are talking about you should keep your comments to yourself.
Two years ago I started to gain weight even though I was walking about 5 or 6 kilometers a shift at my job,plus exercising 1/2hr. at homeevery day, nothing I did worked. I quit eating bread, pasta and potatoes. I ate loads of fruit and veggies fish,chiken and roasted or broiled bergers. I went from 135#s to 177#s-was ready to take up smoking, not only was my physical health deteriorating my mental health was also suffering. Just this week I have been diagnosed with an underactive thyroid and started taking medication for it,now I need to know if there are any foods I need to avoid. Believe me this is no "crock of crap".

I know nothing about this diet. I have just been doing this on my own and using the Slimquick plan. I didn't know until this past Monday what was wrong with me, now what concerns me is that I have been told that I shouldn't eat some foods such as broccoli, which I love and is almost a staple for me. I think that once I get this under control my weight may start to come down. I just need to know if I should avoid certain foods.

I was diagnosed w/ hypothyroidism back in 1998 -- I ended up having nodules on the thyroid & had all but 2% of the thyroid removed. I have struggled since the surgery back in 2002 -- I gained 35 lbs in 2 months immediately following the surgery. I take my meds every single day as prescribed. I would love to know if there is something I should or should not be eating. I got every 30-45 days to have my bloodwork done and go between 125 mgs to 137 mgs of synthyroid. This is not a fun disease. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I see some advice for the doctor to see you every 6 weeks...but it is so difficult to convents her..what should I do? I've been very stressful and was tick off for any reasons,,is it the cause of the thyroid that makes me feel so miserable? its not just effecting me but i is affecting my kids...they see what I am going through and it hurts t see them worries.

I"m 21 years old and have been dealing with a hypothyroid since I was 14 years old. In the past 4 months I've gained 60 pounds and my body is at a high 229. When I look in the mirror I dont always like what I see, but I know under this extra weight is the same girl I've always been. Having a hypthyroid is a fact of life for me and I have learned to embrace it and educate others on this problem. I have to take 175 mgs of synthroid and the number keeps rising as my thyroid continues to decline, yet the BEST advice I can give is to get outside..take a walk and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. If your a mom, take the kids with you and spend time with the. If you work ALL the time like me, get up just 30 mins earlier before you start your day and watch the sun come up. If we excercise and eat healthy we can all be successful in managing our thyroid problems. I'm 229 now and i may always be 229 but I encourage ya'll to try and live healthy and you'll be surprised that you may actually like the person staring back at you in the mirror. Goodluck =)

I've got hypothyroidism thanks to my doctor running a test one me early last year. At first he gave me the generic form of Synthroid and kept juggling the dosage and still my thryoid levels were wacky. Then he put me on the name brand Synthroid and my thyroid levels came down to normal. He will be having my thyroid checked when I go see him again to make sure it's at the right level. I know that the Name Brand worked better for me, I'm going to try a diet aid possibly orovo just to help boost my weight loss goals. I need to lose 16 pounds.

I am 15 years old, and I have had Under-Active Thyroid for about a year now. I am currently on 75mcg of Levothyroxine but I am now starting to feel the way I used to feel before I found out that I had it. I have began to feel tired, get very cold hands and feet, have no concentration and have gained a lot of weight with there not being any change to my diet. I'm worried about this as after feeling in a good mood every day, always energetic then going back to having no energy and constantly being tired, I constantly feel depressed. I also have important tests coming up soon and I'm worried that I wont do as I'm expected because I find it extremely hard to concentrate. I have had a blood test as I do every 3 months to see what's going on.
Will this Diet actually help any ?

I'm a 42 year old female and have been living with the thyroid disease for about seven years now. I have gained about fifteen pounds and still feel tired with mood swings most of the time. I had my thyroid removed and later found out that I had tyroid cancer wich was treated with the radiation iodine at the hospital. I have had four radiation treatments in all and I know that with each treatment it affects my metabolism more and more. I just wish that I had more education on the do's and don'ts of thyroid disease and what I should and should not eat. When ever I see my Endocrinologist he never seems to know the answers to my questions or just does not take them serious enough. I sometimes feel as if these Doctors just don't care about us and our illness.

I had gained 30 lbs. in just 6 months!!! I knew something was UP. The most I had ever gained in the past was 5-7 lbs /year, if that. I am becoming more and more depressed because I have spent nearly $800 on a "bootcamp" classes, cut down on carbs, drinking lots of water, and NOTHING....I am also taking .50 mcg of Levo and I've only lost 2 lbs. I heard about FucoThin and want to give it a shot. Anyone else take it? Can you take FucoThin and Levo?
|hypo for life||posted 15-Aug-2008 12:32pm|
Hello friends, I have been hypothyroidic all of my life; thus I understand the pains and the feeling tired. What I am going to share with you is how I live my life. I take 275mcg of synthroid daily, and actually still have a TSH of 21-which is bad to say the least. But the highest dosage is 300mcg daily, and they won't give that to me untill I am about 40 years old. Right now I am 24. But still 300mcg daily won't ever take me down to the normal TSH of 3-4 like a normal person. Thus, this is how I cope with it all, and weigh 170 lbs. Yes, 170, but this life is tough because if I slack off around the holidays then I hit 200lbs easily. So here is my life plan. Start where you can, and then get better...and if you can do what I do then you too will look healthy and feel great. Notice I said "look healthy" and "feel" great. Because the doctors will always see me as sick and diseased, but it is partly our state of mind...mind over matter here.
So here is my lifestyle. I sleep at 9 pm. and wake up at 5 am daily. I jog for 1 hour, on saturday for 2 hours. The time is most important, distance is just a plus. I weighed 275 once so I know about only being able to walk...do what you can do and just keep getting better. But someday you too could run 10 miles just like the fitness people. So that is my main secret. 1 hour of jogging Mon-Fri, 2 hours on Sat., and rest on Sun.
Now for my diet. This is tough, and it gets old fast, but it WORKS. So here is what I eat. First off, I Fast=go without food, every other day. I still drink about 1 gallon of water daily still. So no food every other day, but drink all the water you can. This will shrink your stomach naturally, and it helps my body greatly. Then on the days I eat food this is my diet:
beans, eggs, tuna, salmon, peas, oatmeal, and apples. then drink 1 gal. of water a day.
That is it my friends. Nothing more. Just 7 foods. Mix and match how you like, but eat them plain. This means I do not add salt, or any other spices/flavors to it. I just eat it the way it is-natural.
I eat apples raw, and cook/warm up the others, but that is it.
We eat because we see others eatting, but truly the body does not need much food at all, it needs WATER. The body is 70% water, 20% muscle/body mass, and 10% organs and bones. So you need all the water you can drink.
If you can live this live this way for life, then you will over come this weight problem, and impress the doctors as well.
My last note of help is this: I meditate daily. Take the time to just relax and think happy peaceful thoughts. And tell yourself you are in-shape, skinny, healthy, sexy, ect... and you will eventually become what you think you are.
I hope you will take this advice. Have a wonderful life.

I need to get this under control. I went to my Dr and she put me on Thyroid medication 3 weeks ago. I is 2:35 in the morning and here I am trying to figure out the foods I should eat and not eat... I do have a sweet tooth, so I know I have to be careful, but I am gathering up as much info as I can. I can't imagine drinking a gallon of water a day and fasting every other day. That has to be hard. I will take some of the advice on here about eating some of these foods. So what kindof beans are you talking about ? How many eggs can I eat ? I am looking for friends on here that are going through the same thing and have found what is best to eat and your exercise program. I walk our dogs 1 to 2 miles every day. I swim and ride an exercise bike. I just am depressed every time I get on the scale to see that I am adding pounds every week... :^(

I had alsways maintained a comfortable weight and felt good about it. I am 5'10" and weighed 170 pds which was healthy looking. Suddenly I started gaining weight slowly then over a 4-5 month period I began gaining at least 5pds per week. I had gained up to 274 pounds and I had absolutely no energy what so ever. I finally had a sonogram on my thyroid that showed large nodules and the endocronologist decided it was best to remove the thyroid. After the surgery I felt immediately better and I am now on the medication Synthroid and the doctor said my levels are good, but I am still having trouble losing the weight. I walk 3-4 times a day during work and I exercise on my treadmill and sit up machine at home. My clothes are a little looser but the weight is lingering and I try not to get discouraged but I can't help it sometimes. I watch what I eat and I don't eat after 7pm at night as a rule. I hope I start to loose because I have been slim all my life and I am not happy with myself right now. After having my twins I bloomed to 300pds and lost 30pds right after they were born and lost another 70pds in water, only gaining 35pds of actual weight from the pregnancy. I lost the rest within 2-3 months and I thought it was hopeless then. I had my surgery in May of 2008 to remove the thyroid and I am still struggling to lose the excess weight. What can I do more of to make the difference?

Does anyone know their thyroid levels? The normal range is 0.5 - 5. Mine is smack in the middle at 2.7 - so now that it is normal a person should be able to lose the weight, right? Wrong! What the heck is wrong with me? If the thyroid levels are in the normal range now due to medication, then why not the decrease in weight? When I found out about this problem, I cried with relief that there was a reason.....but now, 2 years later, I feel hopeless. I have done everything you are supposed to do.....and I mean everything, food, exercise, all of it - but the weight won't come off. I am 5'7" and 199 lbs. I am scared to death to have it topple over that 200 lb mark. It's almost as if my body is saying - this the weight you are supposed to be - I can't accept it. Maybe some of you can "learn to like what you see in the mirror" - Sorry I can not!! So, what now? There has to be something!!
|Use to be thin||posted 20-Oct-2008 4:04am|
I use to be thin, at one point too thin (95-100#s) I was 24 at the time. Did not think much of it because I had always been thin. My older sister was heavy and my mom treated her something awfull because of it so I think I was always afraid be get too heavy so I did not eat much. When I was 26 I was having a lot of menses problems and the Dr suggested I go on birth control to give me regular ones and less painfull ones. I said, Ok. We went with the Nor Plant because the oral ones made me ill. He said I would gain a few lbs but no big deal, I only weighed 113 lbs so I could stand to gain a few. I gained more than a few. In the first year I gain 25 lbs, I started having horrible head aches. body aches, constipation, mood swings and I had to eat something every so often or else I would get the shakes. I also had fluid retention. Later when I complained to the Dr about it he said gaining weight was because of Lifestyle!! I have NEVER been overweight in my life, not even when I had a baby when I was 21. In fact I had a VERY Difficult time gaining. A year after having the Nor Plant put it the Dr finaly removed it. Said he was doing it because of the other sides effects, heach aches and body pains and constipation not because of my weight gain. The changes to my metabolism were not reversed by having it removed though other symptoms did get better. To this day, I dare not eat ANY sugars before 1 pm or I get very shakey and I am not able to loose any weight. Not even on slim fast or lean cusine. When products containing Ephedra were available they did help and I was able to keep my weight at a livable weight. I have had tyroid tests done in the past and was told it was 'Border-line" but they gave me nothing. I haven't had any insurance in the past 2 years and I don't know what to do to help myself. I hate to look at myself in mirrors. I do not go out, I do not have a boy friend or a husband. I do not feel comforable in my own body anymore. I have no energy and I am only 40 but I feel 90. I weight 190 now. Someone help me please.

I am a 26 year old mother of a beautiful 16 month old baby girl. I have had Hypothyroidism since I was 14 and deal with it daily. My personal experience is yes, it is very frustrating getting on Synthroid/Lev the first time because your levels are very difficult to control such as dosage, etc. My doctor put me on 100mg but I cut one of my pills in half and take one and a half daily because I can tell when I am having an "off" week. Less energy, loss of sex drive, etc. I too am unhappy with the way I look. I weighed 155 pounds when I was first married in 2006 and after having my daughter I currently weigh 210 pounds. *I know it isn't baby fat as my daughter is 16 months old* My advice is to work VERY closely with your doctor and discuss your dosage options. Together with your blood work you are the only one that knows how you feel throughout the day. Next, TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR DIET. Diet pills are NEVER a good idea with a thyroid disorder. It clearly states that on pretty much every diet pill bottle. Plus, it could counteract with your medications and in turn make you gain instead of lose.
Join a gym. *I joined today and hired a PT to help me get on the right track* Exercise will help you feel better and not only that the weight will come off. Slowly (unfortunately for people with HYPO it is slow) but it will come off. You can't diet for ever so unless you plan on taking diet pills for the rest of your life you need to start customizing your life to fit the type of stamina/energy levels you want.
If you can't afford to join a gym or get a PT, sign up for myfitnesspal.com and track your food. Excerise/walk at home. Create a support group in your area for other individuals that want to loose weight.
Good luck to you!

If you are hypothyroid:
Avoid peanuts, soy products, vegetable oils, and raw cruciferous vehgetables like broccoli kale or cabbage or bean sprouts. Add eggs, cod liver oil, coconut oil, selenium and other minerals, sea weeds and other iodine-rich foods including unrefined sea salt (not table salt), water, exercise. Avoid refined sugars and flours and flouride toothpaste. Small amounts of fermented soy ok (tempeh, miso).

I try to be possitive at the best of times and I still am. But its almost like your a totally different person, to what you remember, moan I know.
you have to measure things up against what you believe you can handle. If that makes sense. But important to believe in yourself and not to be to hard on you, shift the expectations but at the same time be responsible 4 you. dont put you on the bottom of the priority list !!!

I was diagnosed with an autoimmune thyroid disorder over 4 years ago. Your hormone levels will change many times until the right dosage is found. I bounced between 2 of the same dosages for over a year, changing back and forth. I have gained weight just before I was diagnosed and I have lost very little of the weight, but my dosage kept changing. My dosage has been the same for over a year now and finally I am losing weight. The healthiest and most permanent is one pound a week. If you truly don't want to exercise and want to lose a pound a week you need to reduce your calories by 3500 calories per week. Keeping a journal of your daily food intake and times (that is everything that enters your mouth) is very useful to find if you are eating too many calories. (calorieking.com gives you many basic food calories) I am currently on a 1300 calorie a day diet and with hypothyroid eating high soluble fiber, high protein and low-to-moderate carbs, and very low fat you are actually able to eat a lot of food, but it is low calorie food. I have lost 4 pounds in the last 4 weeks which is the healthiest and most permanent. I hope this information helps and that you are able to lose weight and keep it off. (adding exercise into the mix will help lose weight faster, but more than a pound a week will water weight that you will gain back, but remember if you exercise you need more calories). Also, ALWAYS listen to your doctor. BUT if you don't like your doctor seek other doctors that may better help you. Other ways that may be helpful, instead of Synthroid and levothyroxine, bio-identical hormone prescriptions. Again I hope this information helps you (anyone mentioning thyroid (especially hypo) disorders or problems).

I am 17 years old, when i was 16 i found out i had both symptoms of thyroids, hyper & hypo. i was 5'4 and weighed 102 lb. the doctor put me on 100mcg pills but since i had a little of both it didnt really do much... i would take the pill each morning like i was told but still constantly tired! It would take me months & months to gain a pound. But all of a sudden i 've been gaining weight. Like 2 months ago i was 113 and now i went up to 123... it is so confusing. Having to deal with both hypo and hyper can really mess you up. Anyway my best suggestion for all who is dealling with hypo or hyperthyroidism is to pray and ask God to take it away. He is almighty and well known for his miracles. For those of you who have been feeling deppresed... dont. Don't settle with taking pills for the rest of your life. Seek and you will find. just dont give up & always have faith.

I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease in 2000. Eventually they had to take out my thyroid. Yes, I am on meds for life but I did loose about 90 pounds over a 5 year period. I did what most people do when they start diets, I jumped in with both feet and then after awhile I got bored and quit. In doing so I gained weight back so the yo-yo effect occured. Then I had a moment when I looked in the mirror and said I will not let this disease tell me how to live my life, I did not want to be overweight anymore. So like so many people I hit the gym, watched what I ate and fight the temptation of all those wonderful fat filled goodies out there. Now I do let myself have a treat but not all of the time. Yes, we do get depressed at times heck I thought I was just destined to be fat but you have to stop and say "No I do not have to be like this". Then keep trudging through. Remember Rome was not built in a day and you did not gain all the weight in one day either. So basically what I am saying is take it one day at a time and you will get there. I know it is frustrating but in the end it is worth it. I went from 279 to 185 with 30 more pounds to loose.

what i know works is alot of green vegies, protein, and very little or no breads, lots of greens for lunch and dinner, now when i say protein, not fatty like bacon and sausage, but chicken, leans meats the size of a deck of cards, clear of sugary foods and white flour

we also have to work out, be it walking or whatever excercise you do more than the average person, if you can walk in morning and excercise again in evening, we have to double up, since our metabolism is so slow

I would like to know what I can eat. I have low thyroid. I don't know what to buy.

The glycemic index is horrible to follow, according to the GI strawberries and watermelon are high on the list because it doesn't take into account digestable and undigestable CHO which can make a huge difference. If you follow glycemic load charts they are much more accurate and will result in a greater weight loss.

having Hypothyroid means that your metabolism is slow, which obviously means your not burning as much fat off in your body, eating 3 meals a day is a MUST which will help empower your metabolism and should mean that the amount of fat your body burns increases.

I am 45 years old; I just had my thyroid removed about two months ago. I have gained a lots of weight and I take a synthroid pill every day. Just like all the others stories I have read I feel the same way. I need to know the dos and the doníts. I need to know what will happen if I miss or late taking my medication, or what will happen if I do not eat in time. What foods to eat and not to eat. This is all knew to me and I just want my life to be like it was before all of my hypothyroid problems came into my life.
