Having being diagnosed just over 12 months ago and pushing for further investigations, I've now had a diagnosis of Underactive Thyroid, Vit B12 deficiency & Vit D deficiency. I am on lifelong medication for all 3.
I decided that I would now look at my diet , as I was still struggling to loose the near 5 stone I've put on. So I took the plunge & did a 7 day complete detox, drinking only juiced fruit & veg and glasses of water ( juices supplied by a local Juice bar). AND..... I lost 6lb !!!! I have now joined slimming world & lost another 2lb last week! This is the first time in years I've actually lost some weight. I've completely cut out all refined sugars, processed food & I limit bread & alcohol. I cook everything from scratch now. And I have to say, I am finally beginning to feel normal again. It may not be the case for everyone, but after a lot of researching, I felt that a diet overhaul was needed, and feeling so rubbish every day, what did I have to lose? It's certainly started working for me fingers crossed it continues to work & eating clean has certainly improved how I feel I also supplement with Berocca boost & fish oil tablet everyday!
