I recently started eating sushi wrappers (lavers), two of them have 5 mcg of iodine in them (at least the type I got). And I purchased some seaweed products so I'm going to start supplementing with whole-ish food products intermittently.
For researching purposes, I really trust Dr. Mercola, a lot of what he says has worked for me. And he has a post about Iodine. He warns against using supplements by Lugol's or Ioderol, because he says our thyroids only transport iodine in its ionized form (i.e. iodide).
Here's his post about iodine if some of you are interested in reading it: Too Much Iodine May Cause Hypothyroidism
And here's part 1 of an interview he has with Dr. David Brownstein (posted below). [strike]I haven't listened to it myself, but a few of you mentioned Dr. Brownstein above, so I thought people would be interested in the link. [/strike] Okay, Edited to say that I just listened to part one, and found it very, interesting
On a side note, I started a strict whole 30 approach (with some small carb re-feeds) 10 days ago, and I weighed this morning and happy day, I'm down to 215.8, so I'm down 10 lbs from my re-start. (I had regained from my low, by cheating 20% over the past few stressful months. For me, because of my insulin resistance and gluten allergy, I can't do 80/20. I have to do 100/0.)
