Yes, my doctor says that my TSH is a little high, but not so much that she has suggested medicine. I've read through the symptoms of hypothyroid & the only one I have is a low temp. I don't feel cold (in fact, I used to be cold often & aren't anymore). It doesn't strike me as a problem, just the way my body is.

Why do nutritionists have such a difficult time with the concept that our bodies run less efficiently on protein, therefore we burn more fat and protein to do the same thing then if we ate carbs, an efficient fuel.

I am often amazed at just how stupid many scientists can be.... (and nutritionists.. LOL)



I'm a scientist and not offended by that last statement because it's unfortunately true.
If you were to say to a room of mechanical engineers that it doesn't matter if you put gasoline, diesel, or jet fuel in any particular machine because "a joule is a joule" you'd be laughed out of the room, however, you say "a calorie is a calorie" to a room of nutritionists and they nod in agreement. It's insane because people in biology related sciences should know more than anyone that that's even less likely to be true for a living thing than a machine!
There's no such thing as a 'calorie receptor protein' because a calorie isn't a tangible thing. It's a unit of measurement.
