Flax seed is good for cholesterol because of the soluble fiber, but great for the thyroid because of the omega 3 fatty acids. I will grind it and throw into smoothies or pancakes a lot. So far I have been up and down about 4lbs every other week. The good news is that some weeks I am gaining, instead of losing constantly... We're on to something, just not sure what it is. I will let you all know the secret when I figure it out myself...

As cliche as it is, Yoga has been helping with a lot of the other side effects of hyperthyroidism like sleeplessness and hyperactivity, as well as my mood swings. All good things :)
Sounds like you are doing everything right! It is hard to avoid hydrogenated and/or trans fats when you have to be bringing in a ton of calories, but it seems lately that the latest trend to take trans fats out of foods has helped some (at the expence of adding saturated fats back into the ole diet, darnit LOL)

LOL! I love how everyone has so much fun with the carrot picture I put together for my icon thingie. I'm going to have a hard time topping it when I go to replace it with something else :)

Adam got me too with his carrot,tried to click to get it just brought me to his page,lol
As for the hyperthyroid,I have always been on thin side & yes I get the oh your skinny ,did you loose more weight,you need to eat more......
Well I started to have more symptoms ,racing heart,inability to sleep,shakes,sweats etc my body went into overdrive,shaking/racing from the inside out.Finally went to doctor & diagnosed with hyperthyroid.Well did the meds & it initially helped until I had allergy reaction to them.I was short on options,so opted the iodine treatment{it kills out the thyroid}. Things have been better & my thyroid level is kept in check. Gained some weight back but people still consider me skinny
Yes there is 2 sides of not being healthy weight,if your over or under people just can't seem to help themselves to say something about it.
To the OP just be aware of other symptoms than weight loss that can develop,they can be serious if left ignored

Funny you say that because the weight loss is actually the least worrisome of all the symptoms. For me, it's the mood swings, sweats and heat sensitivity, and the sleeplessness that are the worst. Don't get me wrong, I would like to be healthy all the way around, weight included.

Hey fellow thyroid person :) I got hypothyroid so does my sis and aunt. But its a pain I gained 50 lbs till I found out I had it and im on meds now and went from 120 when I was shorter to now 166 and taller but I was 185 then 170 and then 166. So I lost weight with the meds. But don't let it mess up your life.
