One guess! Read the article here.

One note though, when they discuss vegetable oils in the article, simply think olive oil. Oils like Canola, etc, are not really healthy for you.

For myself, after having been told I have Hashimoto’s Disease, an auto immune disease of the thyroid, earlier this year, I’ve adopted the Paleo Diet, and absolutely love it! I’m symptom free, and hopefully after some healing, I’ll be able to lose weight again.
