Help please with starting juicing for weight loss. How much should I drink daily?

Dilute juice, +fiber: Drinking juice beverages (with or without fiber) can help with weight loss only if they don't increase the total amount of calories eaten per day.

How long does it take for levothyroxine to start working? Espacially about weight gain :(

Hypothyroidism: Given it's long half-life, we re-check your TSH about 6-8wks after you start Levothyroxine or change your dose. There are many symptoms to hypothyroidism (that's why you're taking Levothyroxine, right?), some of which take longer to resolve than others, but most within that 6-8wk period of time, if you're taking right dose for you. But weight won't magically melt off w/o exercising & eating health ...Read more

"i have hypothyroidism and take 75 mg per day of synthroid (thyroxine).And wanted to know if it was ok to take shinny fiber.. To help lose weight low on protein but over wise good heath..

If : If your thyroid levels are well controlled on your current dosage, you are like a normal person. The only concern would be if the absorption of the thyroid were affected by the fiber; that's not an issue if you take your thyroid pill on an empty stomach. There are no easy answers to losing weight. I have not heard of shinny fiber. Lowering calories and increasing activity are the keys to weight loss. There are a few other guidelines. Visit the link below and look at the posts on weight control. ...Read more
