Diet Programs From the Thyroid Patient Perspective
Name of the Diet/Weight Loss Program or Service:Ideal Protein
When did you follow this diet/weight loss program?:5 months so far this year
I could not lose consistently on any diet and tried them all. My doctors all agreed that I should have a gastric bypass. I have Hashimoto's and Sjogren's so I was at my wit's end and sick of trying. I decided to try for a few weeks and see. Over five months, I have lost 60-65 lbs. It is a very strict diet but it works! I feel much better and I look better too. I am struggling to stay on and lose the rest of the weight but I have kept what I lost off. It is very quick in the beginning and costs about $100.00 a week. I have gone down 3 or 4 sizes and thrown out my heavy clothes. Finally. This works, try it.
Did you successfully lose weight on this diet?Yes
How much weight did you lose so far?51-100 lbs
Pros for Thyroid Patients?
You will feel better and get your energy back. Your joints will feel better, this diet is pretty anti-inflammatory. You take a lot of supplements but they help too.
Cons for Thyroid Patients?
I really haven't had any yet. My gallbladder is not great but it wasn't before the diet. I have no appendix so can't tell you about that. I think if you check with your doctor and follow this it seems ok.
