Is the atkins diet safe for women with hypothyroidism? I have tried low fat diets and they don’t work and I am taking my synthroid and my levels are normal I just can’t lose weight

I also have hypothyroidism. I found that I had to make a few diet changes to lose weight. I still couldn’t lose weight while taking my synthroid and was getting quite frustrated, so I did a little research. When taking synthroid make sure you don’t eat anything too high in fibre for a few hours after you take your pill. Your body might not obsorb your med well enough. I was eating high fibre content foods a half hour after my meds and found it was really not working for me. Also, there are foods you should avoid if you have hypothyroidism, which I had no clue till I did the research. These foods should not be eaten in large quantities and generally not raw, especially if you are on synthroid and still have a thyroid because they can negatively interact with your medication and nullify its effects. Cooking them though breaks down the enzymes that make the anti-thyroid effect a non-factor.
Cabbage, broccoli, turnips, rutabaga, mustard greens, kale, spinach, brussel sprouts, peaches, pears, strawberries, radishes, cauliflower, millet, potato, corn, and african cassava. These are considered Goitrogenic food. I ate alot of these type of foods daily and uncooked. Once I changed my eating habits a bit, I started to lose weight again and have kept it all off. :)
