I have been on a diet for about two months i have done from walking to running to bike riding and i have yet to lose 5 pounds. Does anyone know what i should do. I am depress and dont know what to eat anymore. I am presently hypo and on 60mg compound thyroid.

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Is this good advice?

Welcome to my world! Maybe you need to have your blood levels checked again since you are exceriseing. That can make a difference and you may need to have you medication increased. Also what are you taking Levoxyl or synthroid. Levoxyl is a generic and for some people not as affective as synthroid. Synthroid is more expense.

As for what do we eat who knows. There is a book out by Mary J Shomon called the Thyroid Diet maybe that will help.

Also do you see an regular Md or do you have a Endocrinologist? If not maybe you need to look for one. Good Luck and let me know if you find a good diet.
