I didn't eat loads of packaged high salt, junk food etc anyway.
The only thing I can think of now is carbs after reading about effects of hormones after 40 and also been reading about people who who went carb free with hormone or thyroid problems and finally lost their weight.
For many wheat is often the problem rather than carbs in general and I had already reduced the amount of potatoes, bread and rice I eat per week etc.. The only thing that hasn't changed is my breakfast cereal and I'm stuck...
Oats would be ok under wheat free i presume? but special K which contains wheat flakes would have to be replaced with something else.. rice krispies??
But rice and oats would BOTH be classed as carbs if I was going carb free? and of course toast is a popular breakfast cereal... would gluten free bread be carb free? (I do like my toast.. and can't imagine having eggs without toast either)
but what else could I have for breakfast if I cut out carbs completely? I can't have nuts due to severe nut allergy (had anaphylaxis twice from peanuts.. and other nuts give milder symptoms such as flu-like symptoms, prickly heat or rash)
currently just having an Ensure shake for breakfast (330cals) and a cup of tea.
