BTD Forums  /  The Encyclopedia/ D'Adamo Library  /  Type O hypothyroid. Soy? bad for thyroid?
Posted by: PattiB (Guest), Sunday, August 27, 2006, 1:42pm
Hi Everyone, this is my first post so I hope this works.
I am type O and hypothyroid. I was recently talking to someone about the changes I have made by following the BTD and she said I shouldn't be using soy if I'm hypothyroid. Has anyone heard of this or have any information? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated as one of the main reasons I started following the BTD, aside from health was to lose weight and I don't need my thyroid slowing me down more than it is.

Really you shouldn't be eating soy as an O anyways so, regardless of what it does to your thyroid it is not something you should be including in your diet.  

Simple answer, Soy is not good for O's, soy might slow down YOUR (emphasis on possesive) thyroid: Don't eat soy and don't worry about it

Thanks for the reply. I was under the impression that soy was neutral for O's.

True - but IF you are a nonnie- it would be an avoid .
I personally think that soy is
only for healthy individuels
- in small amounts
- and mainly for the A´s
- but then again I am just a B who doesn´t like the way soy makes me feel. ??)

My O daughter likes both ricemilk and almond milk as a substitute for dairy.

get a hold of the diabetes book from the health library series.....
it prioritizes food values and can help you fine tune your food choices.
