I have been trying to figure out a diet that will help me feel better. I just recently was told I have the beginning stages of Hypothyroidism and they still are waiting to medicate me. I thought maybe there is a way to help myself. After watching " Forks over Knives" I thought why not try a plant based diet. Although my stomach issues seem better, giving up dairy and meat the last 4 days, it seems that choking feeling in my throat is coming back. I really want to lose weight and be healthy, but I'm not sure if this diet will help my thyroid. I believe this feeling in my throat is my thyroid since I had an ultrasound a month ago and they said I had a goiter. I'm wondering if this is just my body getting used to the changes, since its only been 4 days of no meat or dairy, or if I will feel worse the more I continue this diet. Does anybody have any experience with this?
