DAYS FOUR TO SIXTEEN
After about a week on the low iodine diet I got annoyed. At work everyone would go out to lunch……I had to eat my own food. On the weekends my wife and I visited some friends and of course we went out to dinner…..I could not eat anything. Though, I did sip a beer....
I am a person who enjoys going out to eat for lunch and dinner. The hardest part about the low iodine diet was that I couldn’t eat at restaurants. Well, at least it was for only two weeks.
I also have a high metabolism…well at least before my thyroid was removed. So my body needs a lot of calories just to maintain a healthy weight. The low iodine diet isn’t for someone who likes to eat. If you want to lose a couple pounds this is the time to do it!

My scar is healing nicely. I'm using sun block and lotion (Vitamin B) to help with the healing. I'm also taking a multivitamin with anti-oxidants and lots of vitamin C.
