Talk to your doctor: That's what he or she is there for. There are other ways of dealing with cravings, including knowing that they go way down when you make a committed decision not to give in to them. Are you in na or some other form of group or individual therapy. If not, you need to be. Join a group and get a sponsor, a small dose increase (2-4 mg) may be needed, but the more support you have, the better.

Take a deep breath : May need a higher dose, but that is usually done if one had withdrawal symptoms on their current dose and not just for craving. Try to identify any triggers and work with your doctor to deal with them. Cravings are usually short lived and can be worked through with proper behavioral tools.

This is NG: Eat foods that are nutrient dense (like meat, fish, poultry, eggs, cheese, low starch vegatables and water) avoid foods that are not nutrient dense (like starches and sugars, including fruit) nutrient dense foods will increase your basal metabolic rate. On the other hand, starches and sugars impair thyroid metabolism via affects on your liver (which helps activate thyroid hormone).

Depends.: You need to get your resting metabolism rate checked to see what your rate is. This guideline of everyone eating 2000cal has caused tremendous problems. I check resting rates and most women are between 1100-1500calories and in the rest weight range! so customize this to get the right info.
