I've been taking 3 TSP for the past week. It tastes bad to me. I used to put it on bread but now am doing low carb Hi Fat and gave up bread. I tried putting it in tea but that doesn't taste much better.
Try it on popcorn :)

Also, I think I have low thyroid because I am cold all the time and my morning body temp ranges from 96.3 to 97.5. My doc tested my TSH but said I had normal thyroid. The lack of energy and coldness is freaking me out. Since my blood test was normal my Doc won't give me Synthroid.
I read an excellent book by Broda Barnes (about 30 years ago, I might have the spelling of his name wrong) 'Hypothyroidism, the unsuspected illness.' I took my morning temps (but can't remember exactly what he suggested was the borderline). Mine were low, and about a dozen other things convinced me that I was hypothyroid.

Went to the doc who did a test and said I was in the normal range, but at the very bottom of it. He said if I wanted to I could try synthroid, but not to expect to notice any difference for a month or so. I took the first one and within 24 hours there was a dramatic difference.

So check with the doc about just where in the normal range you are. Some of them might be bright enough, but not good at communicating. It is one of the cheapest and safest medications around, but it makes such a difference in the way you feel. It is worth a try. You might be able to use your people skills to get a prescription.
