  2. Hungry for truth

    I’m 15 pages in and you suggest legumes, no dairy and using the microwave. The amount of conflicting information on a hypothyroidism diet makes my head spin.


    1. thehypothyroidismchick Post author

      May I ask which book are you referring too?
      Green beans, Navy beans, Lentils, chickpeas and kidney beans are in the legume family and are very good for your thyroid unless you have a food allergy. These beans are a rich in Iodine and a excellent source of fiber. Total dietary fiber intake should be 25 to 30 grams a day from food, not supplements. Are you getting your daily intake? Probably not, so these beans that I have listed are an excellent choice to add to your plate. Soy & peanuts are also legumes and I never-ever suggest those. I do go into detail on why you avoid soy.


      You must be confused about soy as so much has been said about this little bean. Well, if you have a thyroid condition, it’s likely that your hormonal health overall has been compromised. It’s best to avoid soy as it elevates the estrogen levels.
      Food to avoid: tofu, soymilk, soy lecithin (used as fillers in f.eg veggie burgers), and soy oil.
      Fermented soy like miso and tempeh are OK though. Always pick non-GMO (non-genetically modified) and MSG-free miso and tempeh)
      Soy products have hormone disrupting effects. Soy is also high in isoflavones (or goitrogens), which can damage your thyroid gland. Products containing soy protein appear in nearly every aisle of the supermarket. That’s because soy doesn’t just mean tofu. Traditional soy foods also include soymilk, soynuts and edamame (green soybeans), just to name a few. Food companies also develop new food products containing soy protein from veggie burgers to fortified pastas and cereals. READ your labels. Don’t worry you still can eat fried brown rice but replace it with Coconut amino’s instead. Soy is estrogen mimicking, goitrogenic, hexane filled, protease inhibiting, GMO & a environmental destroying food.”

      Also, dairy can be a issue if you have a food allergy to it. I also explain more in-detail about dairy in my book.

      It is believed that as much as 70% of our current population has some form of food sensitivities (different from allergies) and the main culprits are:








      How do you know if you have it? Eliminate one food culprit at a time for 2 weeks, see if you feel any better, and then re-introduce it in large amount after the 2 weeks. If symptoms (such as bloating, headaches, fatigue, foggy brain, eczema, acne, etc.) come back, you know the culprit. It’s critical to cut out the culprit(s) as it aggravates your immune system.

      The microwave? Do you have a cell phone? Today, with technologies like television and wireless Internet, we’re being subjected to more radiation than ever. A cell phone produces about the same frequency of electromagnetic radiation as a microwave oven, ( more if you have a 5G cell phone) but I’m guessing that you probably don’t hold a microwave oven to the side of your head for hours at a time, do you? I’m apologize that you’re getting lost in my book. As diseases go, you would think that it would be a cinch to diagnose and pretty straightforward to treat. Each of us are unique individuals with different sensitivities. None of has the same exact routine as far as what foods we eat, what chemicals we are exposed to and what medications we take but yet we all are similar when it comes to our thyroids not working properly. Every Cell in your body responds to the foods you eat, the products you put on your body to the house hold chemicals that you purchase for your home. All of these things have a direct impact on your hormones and in return your hormones have a direct impact on every major system in your body. Not to mention that our body is lacking certain nutrients that heavily influence the function of every cell in our body.
      The foods that we consume, oh, the foods we consume.
