Well i was really lucky because at the time i was at my lowest doing full on carnivore and i had the side pain i thought was a hernia but it was caused by the diet. Anyway i somehow recalled Matt Stone telling Richard nickoley that he was hypothyroid and i decided to check his site out. I read for like hours and immediately went from years of low carb straight to RRARFing, grains, sugar and everything.
So it totally destroyed my healthy eating and carb fearing mentality. And yes it almost inmediately made my hormones and thyroid shoot up. I actually lost weight immediatly like within a few days, going from 1600-2000 cals all meat and eggs to upwards of 5000 of anything. Pretty crazy thinking about it. But it only worked for so long and the. I had to adjust and tweak and backtrack.
