If you’re searching for the best hormone imbalance diet plan, you might be wondering if you should eat a high-fat or a high-carb diet.
Now, hormones play a vital role in our health.
They communicate messages that tell our bodies how to develop and how to keep bodily processes on track.
Hormones influence your metabolism, libido, weight, and even the way you handle stress.
They are so important that when you have hormonal imbalances, this can result in significant health problems.
Luckily, there is a hormone imbalance diet plan that you can follow to help you eat the right foods for your hormonal health.
Yes, should you eat a high-fat diet or a high-carb diet for hormones and overall health?
There appears to be a never-ending debate about low-carb vs low-fat diets for hormonal balance, weight loss, and overall health.
High-fat diets have been shown to negatively impact your hormonal balance and in particular your thyroid gland.
Research has shown us that going low carb can affect the thyroid gland by:
- A drop in metabolic rate and energy production (1)
- Causing a fall in the active thyroid T3 thyroid hormone (2)
- Raising the thyroid blocking Reverse T3 hormone levels (2)
All of these suppress your thyroid function and so negatively affect your overall health and of course the health of your thyroid gland.
Further to this, studies have shown that plant diets are associated with a reduced risk of thyroid issues.
Following a high-fat diet can also negatively impact your liver health and potentially causes NAFLD (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease).
In our video today, we compare a high-fat diet to a high-carb diet when it comes to your hormonal health.
