  1. Thank you so much! Since your post, I have eliminated my caffeine and have begun to do yoga focused on the neck. It turns out that the yoga moves I was performing was actually not good for hypothyroidism either. So until I can get into my doctor, I'll do these small things to see if it helps.
  2. Two years ago I tried the six small meals a day and cutting my caloric intake to 1200 and I did lose weight. But I wasn't able to keep it up because I can't eat every 3-4 hours at work. :-( I didn't have my thyroid checked in 2013 but in 2012 my blood work came back okay so I didn't think anything more about it. Perhaps I should have it rechecked as I have struggled with this for over one year now. I didn't even think about it. Thank you so much for the suggestion!
  3. Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum but am desperate and hoping someone can help me. I've been gluten-free since 2009. I developed reactive hypoglycemia about 2 years ago. Ever since, my weight has been creeping up. I do NOT eat refined foods (rice, gluten free bread, potatoes, etc). I rarely if ever eat fruit because it makes my sugar crazy. I eat a diet mainly composed of protein (grilled fish, eggs, chicken, turkey burger, pork loin, and yes occasionally ground beef so that I don't go insane - although I do not eat steak). I also eat a lot of veggies steamed and grilled veggies. I do eat Atkins meal bars (the ones without wheat of course) once a day. I'm overweight but when I try and exercise - I find myself hungry or shaky a few hours later if not immediately and then find myself eating more protein and veggies (ie - more calories). That's pointless because i'm simply replacing what I just burnt during exercise. If I simply cut down how much I eat (further than what I am already doing) - I get shaky. I eat three meals a day. What in the world am I doing wrong???
