    Cleaned out the entire kitchen. No more low-carb bagels ftl :hs: But my blood panel came back, I'm slightly hypo, and I think getting rid of soy is a good move in any case.

    Ohhh I'm sorry. No, hypothyroid :o not badly, but enough that I think getting rid of the soy is a good thing.

    99% of the low-carb bread products out there- pasta, bread, bagels, whatever- are low-carb by virtue of soy :o

    I *knew* a lot of them had soy in the ingredients and I was still shocked when I went looking. Even a lot of "regular" bread products have soy flour since it's a cheap, cheap source of protein. A lot of the breads I picked up to look at say less than 2% of: blah blah blah, soy flour/soy protein isolate. Kinda skurry really.

    Yar. It was very timely, actually :wiggle: and I'm sure he's right that a little here and there wouldn't be bad.

    I was eating something more along the lines of: high-protein (soy) cereal for breakfast, a couple of low-carb (soy) bagels for lunch and snacks, sometimes with a boca burger, etc. Classic just going overboard cause I was lazy and I could eat more for less calories.

    A friend of mine has thyroid problems too AND she's allergic to soy. There's a frigging bunch of food that has soy in it so it's a pain in the ass to be able to eat out. She just usually sits with us and watch us eat...
