It’s amazing how little the thyroid is in comparison to how big of a job it must do. From regulating heart rate and body temperature to metabolic rate, energy levels and more. I was diagnosed with Hashimotos thyroiditis when I was in my late 30’s. I had already battled my weight, so I got set on arming myself with as much knowledge as possible to eat the best thyroid foods for weight loss.
Women are more likely than men to have a thyroid disorder. When you add in hormones, menopause and aging…you have a recipe for weight gain, exhaustion, and mood issues. I watched my mother suffer for years and her doctors didn’t seem to help.
Certain foods can help with the function of hormones and how the body uses energy or stores foods as fat. When you understand how certain hormones work, you can use them to your advantage. It is possible to manipulate your hormones in a safe and natural way to some degree with food and exercise.
Exercise can be great, but if it is too much, or too taxing…the thyroid and the adrenals can suffer. Missing out on quality sleep can keep your hunger hormones turned on, and your brain function at low. When we don’t get enough sleep, we are more apt to binge.
After years of struggling like my mother did with little help from her doctors, I set out to find out why so many women couldn’t find answers when it came to thyroid function and how to feel better. That’s when I stumbled on the best foods for weight loss and thyroid health.
Since digestive disorders go along with low thyroid function, it is imperative that you eat as many vegetables as possible. Bathroom issues can be remedied with the addition of flax seed, chia seeds and high omega 3 foods that fight inflammation and create regularity.
