I'm wondering if anyone in this forum suffers from hypothyroidism and has had success with Whole30. I'm on day 16, yay! I haven't gotten my "tiger blood" yet and I haven't seen any real weight changes or changes to my body composition. What I have gotten is constipation! I was really weak for a while but now at least I'm able to make it through a fairly normal workout in the morning. I know a big part of this program is getting your body to rely on its fat stores for fuel instead of sugar and simple carbs but I'm wondering if my thyroid condition is slowing down my progress and rewards! I take synthroid everyday and I was wondering if there are any success stories out there from others with thyroid disease. It's seems so hard to move the needle...yes, I've gotten on the scale so done shame me I've started to be more mindful of calories too because it seems like maybe I'm eating too much. Today's food as an example: Breakfast Smoothie (post workout) Spinach and Kale, 1 banana and 2 strawberries, plus almond milk Lunch (mid-morning because I was hungry) leftover turkey chili, fried egg and half avocado, tea with almond milk Snack: apple with almond butter plus a handful of mixed nuts Dinner: 1 pepper stuffed with leftover turkey chili and chicken, 1/2 avocado drizzled with some Habanero Ranch dressing I haven't been able to drop the afternoon snacking...that is still a problem for me. Anyway, today I seriously considered quitting but I will not. I owe it to myself to finish the 30 days but I guess I'm writing on this forum to hear some success stories from women with thyroid issues because nothing seems to work for me...except Isagenix shakes, which worked for a while but who the heck wants to drink their food everyday forever? Not this lady!! And by "worked" I do mean weight loss...yes, I want a healthy gut but I also want to drop some inches. Right now my gut doesn't feel super healthy since I can't seem to go number 2 in a good way! Sorry for the TMI but it's like I don't have much there...I'm assuming because my body is using mostly everything I'm eating??? Would love some advice and success stories
