I would eat "dr. ali's breakfast" found on youtube. I would go to dr. ali and see if it is appropriate to get off hc at this point. If you are taking hc, chances are you need armour thyroid as well, so have that checked out. He takes insurance and is brilliant. You will have to do most of the work yourself of course but we all need support and someone that is a phone call away. He will help you on your journey. He is in NEW YORK CITY !! Visit him once, and then you can use phone consultations. The breakfast will help adrenal/hypoglycemic issues. The breakfast will allow your liver to better assimilate the food you take in throughout the rest of the day. Good Luck.
