Anyone out here who has done Whole30 that has no thyroid? I have no thyroid due to thyroid cancer and curious about others like me that have done it and their results/follow-up. I finished mine 2 days ago. I lost 0 lbs. My brother did it with me and lost 25 lbs and my husband lost 15 lbs. I feel no different at all. Was hoping it would help with energy and digestive issues. If anything my digestive issues got worse and spent quality time on toilet. Need to further figure that out. I'm pretty in tune with my body. I know Whole30 is good. But what about for people like me? Does it tend to affect us differently? Maybe it takes longer? I'm on thyroid meds to keep my levels suppressed so cancer doesn't come back. My 1st cancer was at age of 23 and had partial thyroidectomy. It came back anyway 12 years later and so then I had the rest taken out. Gained about 50 lbs with each removal. I'd love to lose 120lbs. Currently 5'4" and 250 lbs. I'd pretty much been eating about 80% paleo before Whole30. I'll continue on with Whole30 and may cheat every now and then with something but just curious about how it went with others like me.
FISHKID posted a topic in Troubleshooting your Whole30My husband and I just finished our first W30 and are in reintroduction. Our motivation for the W30 is bc I have one autoimmune disease, and only want to keep it at ONE, and my husband has allergies we are trying to alleviate. We both lost about ~15#, and feel great. However! We are from the "Diet for a Small Planet/Moosewood/Laurel's Kitchen" generation, and do believe eating low on the food chain is better for the planet and ourselves. How do you reconcile cancer research data (from "the China Study," for example, that shows cancer grows with increased protein intake, and shrinks when protein is minimized) with the animal protein intake of W30, and the eschewing of plant proteins? Really hoping to hear from folks who have pondered this and have opinions or insight or knowledge to share! THanks! (just realized this shouldn't be in this sub-forum...is there a way to move it?)
