As a result of my hypothyroidism, I have developed and eating disorder over the years which I am finally working on. My nutritionist, who I do like, wants me to drink whey protein shakes (1 per day) to get my protein levels up.

You should consult a nutrition expert and plan out the diet depending on what you can tolerate and what you cannot. Just taking protein shakes may not help. Chicken broth, and white of egg make good protein options, but may not help if you cannot tolerate them. Please consult your doctor regarding this. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.

Type 1(juvenile) diabetes is most often diagnosed in childhood, but young adults and seniors can develop type 1 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes occurs when the persons pancreas stops producing insulin, resulting in the rise of blood sugar. Because Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmunine disease (like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis), the person's own immune system destroys the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. More than 1 million Americans have Type 1 diabetes, for which there is no cure.

Protein shakes can actually add weight to you. As can eating so soon before bed. Your body starts slowing down and preparing for sleep around 7p.m. Also all carbs, complex or simple, can add weight to those with a damaged metabolism such as diabetics. Add more raw vegetables as those will keep your metabolism working. Drink plenty of water to flush your system. Add solid protein (meat) to your dinner. Every morning, drink a glass (8 fl oz) of warm water with juice from half a lemon.

Please let me know if any of you have tried Herbalife.

No processed foods or chemicals. Hope this help!
I drank like those protein shakes and it helped me personally. I have diabetes so it was Lucerne Shakes, but I imagine stuff like Weight Watchers shakes would work also. I felt like the thickness and milkiness soothed it better.
So this is my way and so far I feel great, little hungry between meals but I'm going to get some protein shakes for filler. I feel very energetic.

Hi! Thinness and fitness are two different things. One can be thin and yet fit, whereas one can be fat and unhealthy. What is important is that the weight should not be below the normal percentile for his age, waist circumference and height.

Try to carry some protein snacks with you like cheese and crackers, yoghurt, nuts and seeds and try to eat some protein at least every couple of hours - this should really help.

Since we are a thyroid community, I would normally tell you to check out the pre-diabetes forum, which I will do anyway, but I might also be able to offer to some insight, since I too, have pre-diabetes. The easiest way to address pre-diabetes (insulin resistance) is eat low glycemic foods, that won't raise your blood sugar, such as vegetables, lean meats, low fat dairy, etc. Avoid things like white bread, sugary drinks and other high calorie foods (candies, pastries, etc).
Jerky is a great snack, I'm not sure how many Carbohydrates you're taking in on an average but Greek yogurt has about 20g of carbs but it also has about 12g of protein. Not always do the shakes help as much but they do help to supplement lack of protein, you have to realize that protein powder is made by man in a factory so it's a processed food for sure, I've been told that you're lucky if your body absorbs half the protein those shakes claim to have.
