    Default Do you get angry about food?

    I have been reading all these diet books lately. And according to them we
    should eat everything organic, mainly non-starchy veggies, fish and chicken.
    And apparently not much else. Brown rice is okay for some. The most recent
    book recommended that we (meaning everyone) have a shake for breakfast that
    involved rice protein, pea protein, or chia protein with some ice, hemp or
    nut milk, a little non-citrus fruit, ground flax, walnut oil and some nuts.
    There was another version that involved tofu. On the one hand this Dr. was
    telling us not to eat anything that is processed or has a label on it. On
    the other hand he is telling us we need to slug this stuff down every
    morning. His recipes also involve canned beans. He said we should feel
    free to eat 2 pounds of asparagus or broccoli if we wanted to. Now I like
    most vegetables but even I couldn't eat 2 pounds of them.

    So that is how the regular person is supposed to eat. Now if we have
    diabetes or a weight problem or some sort of other medical problem then our
    diet should be even more limited. I look at what we are supposed to eat,
    according to these experts and I just don't even want to eat! It is easier
    for me to just go hungry than to have to force down something I really
    dislike.

    So Angela pointed out to me that we are seeing countless people walking
    around eating Subway, McDonalds, donuts, candy, cookies, ice cream, etc.
    They are skinny and they do not have any medical problems. So that kind of
    makes me angry. Not that I want to eat the crap that I see them eating.
    Because I don't. But part of me gets angry that I can't just eat what I
    want to with no consequences.

    Why is it some people can do this and we can't?

    It's simple, they probably haven't had their hair tested yet so they
    don't know they're either allergic or intolerant to almost anything
    animal, vegetable or mineral currently known to humankind.

    That breakfast shake doesn't even sound good. I think the people
    eating that junk may appear to not be affected by it medically, but it
    still could be taking it's toll on them and it just hasn't shown up.
    With dietary issues it seems to have a cumulative effect. Just like
    diabetes, some of us have it, but the early stages don't have any
    glaringly obvious signs until it's gotten more advanced. Same with
    hypertension and heart disease. You don't see it with them but it
    could still be affecting them.

    Me too Susan. I was underweight till I had kids. Now I'm just on the
    edge between normal and overweight. I display none of the obvious
    symptoms of diabetes. The only reason I know that I have it is that
    because my family history, and being monitored after a bout of thyroid
    cancer of it my docs follow me closely. Both parents and all my
    siblings have/had. My most recent A1c was 5.5 without medications so
    far.

    Sorry about your T ca, hope it's all gone for good!

    Congrats on your 5.5!

    My whole family used to be amazed when I ate more than my father and
    brother and drank shakes to try and gain weight as a teenager.

    Thanks. Hopefully the T ca is gone for good. I'm 2 years out with
    clean scans and blood tests so far. I'm trying to get the weight
    down. I find it harder to lose weight now that the thyroid is gone.
    I'm going to Weight Watchers for that. I'd be happy to lose 10 lbs.
    The 5.5 A1c isn't bad, but the one before that was 6.1. Anyway, I'm
    working on it.
    Thanks

    Have you had your other hormones tested since losing your thyroid? They
    all react and may be out of synch. A lot of folks seem to do better
    with Tyrosint or Thyrolar, or Naturthroid...

    They run many different blood tests every 3 months. TSH,
    thyroglobulin, Free t4, a comp metabolic panel, lipids, A1c and
    fasting glucose. I'm not unhappy with the synthroid I take. I feel
    good most of the time. I take a dose that most people would find make
    them hyperthyroid. That's to discourage any remnant tissues left
    behind from producing any thyroid hormone or growing and spreading.

    As far as the weight goes, I can do the weight loss, I just have to
    work harder at it, and that may be age related too. I'm 54 so not a
    spring chicken anymore <g>

    I'm glad you're feeling good. I'm just wondering why they're not making
    sure your other hormones, pituitary and adrenal are all back in line,
    since thyroid abnormalities will trigger changes in them that can also
    become chronic.

    But if it ain't broke...

    Probably because I am feeling good. Wouldn't I have other symptoms
    if the hormones are out of balance?

    Diabetes can be one, difficulty losing weight can be one. But if it's
    not that hard to control either and you're feeling good, why buy trouble?

    I also like to eat mostly vegetables and similar these types of foods.
    Because these foods are full of energy with out fat, cholesterol and
    over protein. Green arteries are help to keep body in better positions.
    These list of foods are good for diabetes person.

    Differences in metabolism. Most people don't have allergies or
    diabetes.

    I've found that diet books tend to have a wide variety of ideas
    about what people should eat, and seldom agree.

    I rarely get angry about food. But then, I usually don't feel
    much emotion at all.

    You might want to ask for one more - free T3 - at least once. Some
