Is soy bad for our thyroid?
I am a proud Nutriblaster! I started about 15 months ago. During the past 1 3/4 years I have lost about 110 lbs. Mostly change in diet and some exercise. I have also been diagnosed with low thyroid and I take a very low dose of Levothyroxine (12.5 mcgs daily). This has been monitored over the past year and has not needed to be increased. I have a nutriblast for breakfast. I also have one at dinner with a piece of meat (pork chop, small rib eye or chicken). Each nutriblast contains Soy Slender Soy Milk & Aria Women's Protein powder (which has Soy & Whey protein - label says Non-GMO) with about half spinach, zucchini, apple, some blueberries, cranberries, melon, banana, chia seeds, a squirt of orange Omega Swirl and a bit of cinnamon. Lunch is usually low sodium tuna mixed with low fat Miracle Whip or chicken salad without any bread. I tried Almond Milk and Coconut Water before but did not like them in the blasts. I like my combo with Soy Milk and have them consistently. This has been a big help with increased energy and weight loss however, all I read seems to say soy is evil and attacks the thyroid. Suggestions?
