Concerned about thyroid and weight loss?
If your thyroid gland is sluggish and not producing enough hormones, then you will almost certainly notice that you put on weight very easily and keep it on.
And if this isn’t bad enough, then you will almost certainly have to deal with some or even all of the other unwanted symptoms that go along with hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s. These low thyroid symptoms can include:
- Brain fog
- Poor or worse memory function
- Constipation of other gut issues
- Hair loss
- Irregular menstruation
Yes, and with all these symptoms inevitably comes a lower emotional state. Anxiety, depression and typically a big sense of frustration is something that many people start to experience.
Your clothes are now tight to put on or don’t fit at all.
You have little or no energy, don’t feel like exercising and as a result of less movement, you put on more weight. It’s a vicious circle.
So what can you do about thyroid and weight loss? How can you balance your hormones, lose that troublesome excess weight and keep it off long-term?
This is exactly what I explain in my video:
Thyroid And Weight Loss
Here are the essential steps you need to make in order to help you achieve weight loss with hypothyroidism or Hashimoto’s.
Having a lower metabolic rate or slower metabolism with hypothyroidism or Hashimoto’s happens because your body does not have enough thyroid hormones.
This then causes weight gain, because you are basically not burning as many calories as you did when things were working properly.
So when it comes to thyroid and weight loss, improving your metabolism is essential.
2: Diet for hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s
A sub-optimal diet is not going to benefit your thyroid health.
In fact, it has been shown for example that not getting enough carbohydrates in your diet will negatively affect your thyroid health.
Research has shown us that going low carb like Keto or Paleo can affect your thyroid gland by:
- A drop in metabolic rate and energy production (1)
- Causing a fall in the active T3 thyroid hormone (2)
- And by raising the thyroid blocking Reverse T3 hormone levels (2)
All of these suppress your thyroid function and so negatively affect your health.
This is why we recommend a high carbohydrate diet that comes from healthy whole plant foods.
The results we get with our clients who have many different thyroid issues is excellent – they reduce or come off medication (or feel amazing on medication), they lose weight, feel more energy and start to live their live to the full.
3: Gut health
There are 100 trillion bacteria in your gut and these have a huge impact upon your health, including your hormone levels and your weight.
If your gut is out of balance and you experience poor digestion, constipation, gas or bloating, then you MUST address the health of your gut.
Your gut health will be affected by conditions like SIBO, IBS, IBD, parasites, leaky gut, Candida (yeast) and other imbalances.
A low thyroid is known to cause low stomach acid and negatively affect the movement of food through your gut as well.
4: Adrenal health
When you suffer with a low functioning thyroid, this can negatively impact your adrenal glands.
Your adrenal gland have to increase their output of hormones to make up for your poor thyroid health and lack of energy.
So things to consider are:
- Switching to adrenal restoration nutrition plan
- Reducing overall stress levels
- Exercising within your capability a
- Getting enough quality sleep
- Correcting gut health issues, improving your liver health and overall health
So if you can start implementing these steps then you can start reversing your poor functioning thyroid, balance your hormone levels properly and lose that excess weight you have longed to do for so long.
