Following the Thyroid Diet, When Do You Add Back Dairy and Cheese?

One of my customers is using my Get Your Life Back Thyroid Health Reset Manual and diet and asked this:

Kim, I have been following your suggestions for eliminating dairy and gluten from my meal plans.

I have gotten rid of about 12 pounds in 5 weeks, and feel a little better.

My question is this, is cheese made from goats or sheeps milk still considered dairy?

I am going to the fresh market and whole foods tommorrow, and would like to know.

Thank you,


Dear Doris,

First off, Wow! Thanks for the feedack  and Yea! I’m also so PROUD of you for doing the doing!!! WHOOP!
Q: Is cheese made from goats or sheeps milk still considered dairy?
2 answers
A: Yes, they are dairy. I suggest you stay on the MEAN GREEN diet and not wander out into the YELLOW and RED Fat Flaps zones for 6 months to really let your body rebuild. 5 weeks isn’t very long, though your wt. loss has been great! I went 9 months before I added back feta.
B: When you add back cheese, stay away from processed cheeses, leaving you with goat cheese/feta is okay. Yes, organic (check labels) from farmers market is best. Sheep would be okay too/organic. Organic bluecheese is an option too as it’s not processed.
Plus… have you been seeing a practitioner who uses high quality supplements to help rebuild your health too? If not, make sure to check my PRACTITIONERS site http://thyroidu.com/practitioners/ – check for your state/city in #’s 3-7 links.

Depending on the severity of your condition, nutrition will help a lot, but your lab tests may show a massive flatline in Vitamin D and/or adrenals that just food changes and over the counter vitamins can’t jumpstart sometimes.
Have fun at the Farmers Market!
