I've got Hashimoto's and chronic allergies. I think I've been hypothyroid for a long time, may have started with the birth of my son 15 yrs ago and got worse in the last year when I started going through menopause. But then again I think I've been cold all my adult life.
For me the hardest part of the diet is snacks, sometimes I'm just a bit peckish and don't need a whole meal. I'm not trying to lose weight and from what I've read about Hashimoto's it's not a good idea to IF. Generally speaking I can trust my hunger, it's not like I'm craving something, I just need to eat something small. So far all I can think of for those times is half an avocado, some coconut butter, or an apple. What I would have had prior to the AIP during those time would have been a bit of cheese, some nuts or smoked turkey.
Life is death. We all take turns. It's sacred to eat during our turn and be eaten when our turn is over. RichMahogany.
