I am 22 years old, hypothyroid (currently medicated and doing well though), gluten-intolerant, and trying to (FINALLY) get into primal living. I came to this website on the advice of my well-informed thyroid specialist, after realizing that my strict vegan diet was making me highly anemic and possibly exacerbating my thyroid condition. I have started eating some eggs/fish but having trouble eating actual meat. My doctor said this might be a tough transition, but I am in college right now and I unfortunately cannot afford to have decreased mental performance/"brain fog" that I have been hearing about when people transition immediately. Any advice or tips to help ease the switch? I have already almost completely cut out grains, I rarely eat processed foods and my only sugars are currently from fruit. Thank you everyone!
