Lose the protein powder.
In my experience, atheletes and gym rats are more into that,
believing it will 'build muscle." Isolated protein powders can cause
you to consume Isoflavones in quantities that are unnatural and
the synergy that results from eating the "food," which can include
other components such as soluble and insoluble fiber, vitamins,
minerals, etc. is lost.

There are certain foods that may impact thyroid function, which are
described as goitrogenic because they can increase the chance of
developing a goiter by decreasing thyroid hormone production.

Patients with hypothyroidism are often advised to avoid brussels
sprouts, spinach , broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, turnips, peaches,
pears, strawberries, mustard greens, kale, and radishes, among
other very healthful foods. Soy is also thought to be goitrogenic.

Here’s the thing. The incidence of consuming these foods and
disrupting thyroid hormone production is just about gone if they
are cooked.

Regarding your meds. Take your thyroid pills at a different time of
day from when you are having soy.

I hope this helps.
