    Yes I've read that too. Broc and also sprouts, not sure why or what other foods to avoid. But you should avoid protein for at least an hour after taking thyroxine. Although I take mine with my morning cuppa, which I put milk in. I just can't go without coffee first thing. Not the best thing as milk has Protein in but I have always taken it that way and only found out about a month ago. Been on it for 20yrs! Omg, I didn't realize it was that long, but I did start taking it in my early 20's.

    Yes I uses to drink green tea all the time, is really good but I found it gave me palutations, weird but a few people I know have that problem with green tea.
    The weight thing, pain in the butt! And some days I just feel so tired, other days fine. You know what, I can't even remember life before my thyroid went wrong, I know I was skinny though!
    Although I have been slim lots of times since, but it is very hard to keep motivated when you have a tired day. Maybe I'm just lazy!?
    Oh and did you know your suppossed to take on an empty stomache and not eat for an hour for body to absorb thyroxine? I didn't until recently! I used to take it when I had breakfast!
