How much sugar (carbs) should you eat for optimal weight loss and thyroid function? Does going over a certain amount of sugar raise blood sugar and cause insidious weight gain? I have family members with diabetes and hashimotos so playing around with sugar could be tricky.
I've been questioning Mark's carbohydrate curve, which I have been using as a major guideline for the past few months. I haven't lost as much weight as I would like having gone low carb, (only 80-150 carbs at the start). I have lost 25 lbs and I have leaned out a lot. But can't break these last 15-25 lbs. Although I would like to lean out even more since I still have fairly large love handles and the spare tire . My energy levels were great at first, but got better after I added sugars back. I'm not sure what is a better sugar to have though. I don't want to damage my gut flora and cause a bunch of gas.
