Wish I had more to report from the doc's PeginNH
The answer was the diet is safe long term and that some of the things in the book aren't consistent with the current diet. They aren't really sure why-maybe since the book is so old. Wish I had a better answer.
I spoke with my endocrinologist too about my thyroid meds. He said they don't change that much with weight loss. I was surprised since I thought they would. I did not explain the IP diet because I was worried he wouldn't approve! But didn't someone here say they no longer took thyroid meds after this diet??
Gotta love all the choices of fun animations.
