I have Hashimoto's disease, which means dead thyroid, and I am diabetic. I have switched to healthy eating habits except that I don't eat often enough, however rather than lose weight, I have gained weight and I am at my wits end. I had a hysterectomy when I was 32 and instantly started gaining weight, I spoke to my doctor weekly about it because I had always been able to eat anything and stay very thin at the same time. Help!View Thread
Thanks, I can't eat the wheat as I am Gluten Intolerant, and I am diabetic, so I eat lots of veggies and fruit, I am not so good on the meat part because frankly I don't much like meat. I try though, but I think my dog gets more than I do. I don't eat pasta very much although I have a gluten free one that I eat once in a while. Nor do I eat bread as most breads are made with wheat flour, and the gluten free breads are disgusting. I do try a protein drink in the morning with something called Almond Breeze to replace the milk. Thanks, I will just hang in there.View Thread
I started a gym class in January, all it did was make me gain weight for the first time in about 5 years. I still go to classes 3 times a week and I have a gym at home which I use regularly. My doctors just nod their heads and say nothing when I complain to themView Thread
