Customized exercise approaches that help you fit in fitness and build muscle without fatigue.
Reviews and recommendations of the best diet programs for thyroid patients . . . and more.
Offering an integrated diet and exercise recommendations—and a special resource section featuring websites, books, and support groups—The Thyroid Diet Revolution provides vital help for the millions of thyroid patients dealing with weight problems.

This book is really helping me, and just by starting the vitamins and Evening Primrose Oil, I've lost 3.5 pounds in 4 days. Awesome.
Understanding what my body is going through is a must for me. I'm a 2x cancer survivor and never knew the after effects that the radiation treatments would do to my body and what challenges i would have to go through later in life. Great book !
Now i just need to get my body to respond to everything
My doctor just kept telling me to do diet and exercise and that's all. I guess he doesn't know about food restrictions etc.. You can see a health diet tips on this book which actually works. I started my diet plan without exercise about 3 weeks ago now and I lost 14 lbs. how much more if I do exercise or workouts? Just the right diet will make us lose some weight. This book will tell you what your doctor should've told you -)
I know that soy is bad for us but I have been unsuccessful in finding another resource to support thyroid functions and help my thyroid meds maximize results.
This book was not it. As someone who suffered from a thyroid disorder before getting diagnosed I've read many diet books: "Fit or Fat", "South Beach Diet", Atkins, Caveman diet, etc. I've also read books on Nutrition and Healthy eating. Plus, I've been a member of Weight Watchers. This book is a good resource if you don't own any of the above but if you do then you already own this book when it comes to diet. If you don't know if you have a thyroid disorder this may be of some value to you but I'd just insist on a T4, T3, and TSH test from my doctor.
If you have a thyroid disorder or no thyroid and are looking for a book on foods that are not good to eat with our condition, this is not it. I gave this two starts for that reason because the description led me to believe that this was a book to support a healthy thyroid. The search continues.

The book is very good, but you need only one book written by Mary Shomon. Lots of repetitions.Published 2 months ago by Yvonne
I have bought many Thyroid books and this was the worst. Would not recommend it to anyone. Just a joke for a serious condition.
