I'm hypo and pretty stable on 75mcg triyotex now. I don't seem to gain weight as insanely quickly as I used to, but I am 5 stone overweight and finding it hard to lose - I've also come to terms with the fact that it's my terrible eating habits at fault and not my condition. If I can binge eat I will binge eat.
I heard about water fasting last week - living on nothing but water for 7-21 days - and I'm very intrigued. I would like to try it. If what I've read is true, I could lose nearly half the weight I need to lose in less than a month, and then just build on that. My diets tend to fail after 2-3 weeks so timewise it would work for me, and I might actually enjoy eating lettuce and fish for a while, after nothing!
My query is about my medication. Should I gradually reduce it during that time? There's all this stuff about how your body gets down to focusing on other things while your digestive system is at rest, and I'm wondering if that could possibly include complex things, like the thyroid?
I would be really interested to hear if anyone has done the water fast or has heard good (or bad) things about it, particularly about how it can affect the thyroid. Thank you!
