Dietitians Are Human, Too!

I have let life get in the way of health, and have jumped up 15 extra pounds -- isn't that the OPPOSITE way I was trying to go?? ;-)

So, the guests have left, work has returned to normal, and I am going to pump this out! Back to my clean eating, back to my P90X, and back to LIFE!

Kashi

I don't know where you live, but if there's a doctor in town, he should be able to test your thyroid. Ask for a "free T" test AND a TSH.

Another thing to consider is if you are eating a lot of raw goitrogens that may be a problem. I remember you saying about a month ago that you'd bought a new blender and I saw the photo on your Sparkpage.

Goitrogens would be anything in the crucifer family like kale, cabbage, broccoli. Also some fruits like strawberries, pears and peaches. Soy is another goitrogen.

All these things eaten in quantity and raw can really put your thyroid into a tizzy.

Cooking them slightly helps to de-activate the goitrogens.
I love kale and eat quite a bit of it, but I ALWAYS braise it in organic chicken stock I make.

Also make sure you're getting adequate iodine and selenium.
These two minerals are needed to make thyroid hormone.
Brazil nuts are a really good food based source of selenium.
SMALL amounts of sea weed are potent sources of iodine.

What goitrogens do is bind iodine so that your thyroid can't use it to make hormone... so if you're eating raw goitrogens you'll prolly need even more iodine than someone who isn't.

Something to think about... and mabbe research online?
Take care

Thank you for the encouragement, it's too bad people that understand seem only to be those on line and not in my real world. I wish the world were filled with exceptance and love instead of cruelness and hatred but it is what it is and I can only change my part of it. Thank you again!
