I've been hypothyroid since , and I had new questions to ask my endocrinologist, and it sparked some good discussion.
The rest of the book I felt didn't really apply to me since I only need to lose pounds and it was geared more toward people needing to lose a lot of weight. I'd like to hea The first third of this book is essential reading for anyone with hypothyroidism. I'd like to hear her thoughts for people in my situation. I also wasn't thrilled that so many supplements were recommended.
I feel like there are times when they are warranted, but I think it's best to get what you need through a healthy diet whenever possible. Feb 01, Shelley rated it really liked it.
I have hypothyroidism and when I came across this book I borrowed it from the library as it is a bit dated, , and I was concerned about that. The author has since written other books relating to this same disease. Two of them I also plan on borrowing from the library. I will decide then, which one to download, if not all. I have learned a lot, and this book will make a great reference book.

Saying that, that's pretty sad because I was diagnosed? There are many things I've learned reading this book.
Many things that I've just gotten so used too, that I haven't even related it to the disease, it was just a part of my aches and pains. For example, pains under my feet at the end of the day, or discovering that basically that never ending itch inside of my ear, is also due having a thyroid disease.
Mary Shomon gave an abundance of very useful information, metabolism, weight loss, supplements, herbs, exercise, guidelines to live by, "keeping the faith" I have many little pieces of paper marked off in between the pages.
Her sharing with us foods to eat and foods to avoid were also very helpful! I just wish she had shared more recipes. I have since signed up for aqua Zumba class next month! Apr 21, Emily rated it it was amazing. So far this is a really interesting book. The word "diet" makes it seem like it would be a fad-type book with little use. However, the author has done extensive research on all thyroid disorders and focuses on what the options for treatment may be, good supplements to take to ease the strain on the thyroid, foods to avoid that could hurt your thyroid function, and finally, a diet that is tailored to people with thyroid problems who want to lose wait something that is extremely difficult for us So far this is a really interesting book.

I am a little wary of the diet part but it is really comforting reading about other people with hypothyroidism who have the same weight problems as me. A lot of people don't realize how hard it can be to be overweight and not able to lose weight despite a good diet and lots of exercise. Things that usually would work for losing weight don't apply to people with thyroid disorders for the most part. I'll let you know what I think about the diet part. I also recommend at least the 1st section to people who think they may have a thyroid problem.
The information is all things I have read before but it is not something one would be familiar with even if they hadn't been diagnosed with thyroid disorders.
I'm just a nerd so I read up when I was diagnosed. Mar 28, Lauren Homer rated it it was amazing. Exactly what I've been looking for! I have gained so much weight. I finally started feeling better and and trying to lose weight Pretty sure I started gaining more.
So I gave up. Now I started trying again and decided I wouldn't be discouraged. I found this book and it has been amazing. Basically every conclusion I had made was confirmed by this book.

Plus Exactly what I've been looking for! Plus a bunch of new things. So many other diets and what not seem to assume you are already pretty healthy just overweight. This one starts from the position of having other health problems which I have. Nov 16, Jennifer Washburn rated it liked it Recommends it for: I give it 3 stars only because I haven't tried some of her recommendations yet. I think she covers everything but the kitchen sink in this one so it gets 5 stars for that.
Myself I did not find it to be a fast read. I had to read it twice, and then go back and pick out the various info I felt dealt w me. Jun 19, Chary rated it it was ok Shelves: It turns out, I don't think I have a thyroid problem Some of the tips and strategies are informational.
It goes through a whole lot of herbal remedies and such, which is not my cup of tea. It was informational. A good quick read. Jul 02, Joni rated it liked it.
This was straightfoward, and I felt like it had some solid ideas that I could implement to help myself feel better and learn to live with my condition in a more healthy way. Of course there were parts I didn't really think would be helpful for me, but there was enough good stuff to make this worth a look.
Jul 21, Kim rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Very medical and technical text I had to have my husband read it too and tell me what I needed to do.
But I think the information is right on and helpful. Took me a while to get through it I just want to be healthy Feb 09, Cherice rated it really liked it. There's a lot of really helpful information in this book.

Certain dietary fats contribute to heart disease and some forms of cancer. Reduce saturated fats, which come mainly from animal products such as meat and cheese, and trans fats, which take the form of hydrogenated oils in processed foods and many margarines. Instead, choose fats that help reduce LDL cholesterol. These include monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats from vegetable oils, and omega-3 fats found in certain kinds of fish. Seeds, nuts, and legumes are also healthy choices.
Stick with complex carbohydrates found in whole-grain foods, fruits, and vegetables, and minimize soft drinks, potato chips, candy, crackers, and other junk foods that are high in calories and low in nutrients. Getting enough protein should not be a problem.
Most people in developed countries get plenty of protein in their diets. Increase dietary fiber.
