Pros for Thyroid Patients?
done, Atkins causes all blood levels to go to normal. Reading the book is basic. After three days the food addictions leave the body and cravings stop. You eat lots of salads ( up to 3 cups a day) and with the proteins you are completely satisfied. Protein snacks are good!
Cons for Thyroid Patients?
One must read the book and learn to take advantage of proteins and green and yellow vegetables. Carbs do not work with fats. In fact, carbs are sugar and are addictive. Good vitamins are a must.
I have an extreme case of Hashimotos Disease and metabolic resistance. It took five years, but those five years felt good; I felt in control finally. I read everything that I could get on Atkins and it paid off! The mind is a foul enemy! People fail for lack of knowledge. I lost 100 lbs. !
