Re: meds, thyroid issues, and apple shape

I am not sure if this will help you, but I have hypothroidism too and take BiPolar meds along with BPD meds. I have been struggling with weight because of the Geoden I take makes you gain it. I've been trying diets left and right as well. I stopped trying and have went from 210 down to 183. I have a hard time with it, but I have stayed away from a lot of red meat, I eat chicken and pork (well more chicken than pork) and veges (salad eater, but with a tablespoon of dressing) and walk once in a while. Now if you are exercising a lot, then that is good, keep drinking 8 glasses of watcer a day (8 oz. ones) and that will clean out your system. Just try not to force yourself to eat certian things as denying yourself things might make you want to binge to get the craving away.

This is just what has worked for me I am also on meds for the thyroid.

Hope I helped.
