Gosh... I don't know. What are the approved carbs? This reminds me - my mum has hashis, and years ago she went on a diet where pretty much all she could eat was Halva and tomatoes. She was already thin, dropped to 47 kgs (she's 5'6). Guess what? At the end she still had hashis.

I'm not saying you should go crazy on the cookies, but there's too much evidence to suggest that low carb is dangerous for low thyroid...
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
