Re: Low Carb and thyroid?
Yes, most definitely. Low carb diets have an impact on TSH and T3 - it lowers them both. I am a big fan of controlling carbs but I know that there are certain conditions where it's not the best idea.
South Beach has phases, does it not? Most LC plans do - where you increase carbs as you get closer to your maintenance. You might find you do better if you incease yours, but choose healthy carbs- these are the ones that are whole, natural and unprocessed, i.e. brown rice, sweet potatoes, oatmeal you cook for 20 minutes, 100% whole grain cereals and breads.
A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.
