Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board


I have been having success the past few weeks. I take .125 mcg synthroid daily. I take it on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. About three hours later I take my vitamin/mineral supplement. It is loaded with everything we as hypos are supposed to have ( except CLA) on a daily basis. It also has Siberian gensing, which has been great for my energy levels. At night I take 3000 mg of CLA. I also try to stay away from carbs. I still eat some, I just make sure I REALLY want them. I ask myself, 'do I want a slice of white bread, or do I want to lose weight?' I also take 1000mg milk thistle for my liver. I think of it as insurance. I don't know if it will work for you, but it is doing the trick for me!

GOOD LUCK!! :wave:

How much weight have you lost in a time period if you don't mind me asking. I am having a hard time losing also.

What is CLA?
Quote from mintchocolate:
Conjugated Linoleic Acid. It works. I have never been a believer of fads and weight control gimmicks, but I believe CLA has helped me loose weight. I started taking it coincidentally when I started armour and I lost 10 lbs quickly. I stopped taking it and continued armour, and I gained 3-4 lbs. Then I started taking it again and continued loosing weight. Then someone in this board started talking about CLA and I realized that the product I take "Awe Slim" contains CLA.

Some people just buy CLA and take it before meals etc. etc. I just take a capful of Awe Slim right before bedtime.

Do you take the CLA and Awe Slim? Or just the Awe Slim? You mentioned taking 3000mg of CLA at night. Also where can you find Awe Slim?

Congrats on all the weight loss. I am going to see my dr tomorrow. She is going to do some more blood work and we were going to discuss changing my synthroid to armour.
