There is a bright light at the end of the tunnel for all those who suffer from underactive thyroid.
Forget about all those small talks about how hard it is to lose weight when you have problems with a disease like this.
The solution is probably in front of you. It’s in the food you eat every day.
Committing to these small tweaks promise healthier life and enjoying in the way your body looks and feels.
The abnormal thyroid function is right up on the list as the biggest preventers of healthy weight loss. The producing method of hormones is disrupted, and that’s why you notice higher bad cholesterol and fat levels.
Or as many women call it, I feel like I’m bloated all the time.
It’s time to bring that happiness back on your face. The six effective ways will help you bring balance to your meals and avoid some damaging foods.
#1: The Started Pack
First, you need to determine whether you are going to be fully committed or not. It’s about your health.
Since we got that out the way, let me tell you something about sugar.
You already felt that the underactive thyroid begs you for carbs cravings. The problem becomes bigger when you satisfy the need with the simplest carb out there: the refined sugar.
The real issue with these carbs is that your body processes it faster than the others. It means that you are going to feel hungrier and hungrier and it doesn’t matter how much you ate.
It’s wrong in a long term because you will catch yourself eating more sugar just to stay satisfied.
These simple carbs are found like:
- White Flour Products
- Flavored Juices
- Corn Syrup Sweetened Products
- Table Sugar
- Packaged Cereal
There is a way to satisfy your carb cravings with something more complex. Even though your mind always points out the simpler things in life, this time, I want you to focus on complicating things.
The carbs you are going to see below are called complex because your body can’t process them that fast making you feel full for longer period.
It’s exactly what you need. Plus, it doesn’t cause addiction like the previously mentioned damaging carbohydrates.
Here are they:
- Whole Wheat
- 100% Natural Fruit Juice (or the fruits). Make sure you juice the ingredients by yourself.
- Brown Rice
Even though these foods all contain a good number of carbs, you are going to more satisfied and fulfilled than eating simple sugars.
#2: Sweating Fat Off
Welcome to the gym. It’s time for you and me to sweat it off. The exercises you are performing in the gym will speed up the metabolism and make you ditch the fat.
The thing is when you are suffering from this problem, exercising at average intensity will boost the hormone secretion rate of your thyroid. It means that the chances of obesity-related conditions will be brought to a minimum level.
Focus more on aerobic, running, walking, and other cardio-based exercises.
#3: Coconut Oil to Save You
The fatty acids in vegetable oils promote weight gain and slow thyroid function.
But you already know this.
What you don’t know is that coconut oil will save your life. It contains medium-chain fatty acids that act well on your thyroid function.
On top of that, these fatty acids will improve your glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity.
You can cook with it or digest it 20 minutes before your meals. It will boost your metabolism and prevent fat buildup.
#4: The Magical Snacks
Snacking is important in every diet. If you don’t know how and what to snack, you are going to end up fat.
Taking a few snacks at some point of the day will help you forget about food for a while and reduce the overall calorie intake.
The best choice for you and your underactive thyroid are raw, unsalted nuts. They contain great nutrients required by your body and healthy fats.
Plus, they are full with selenium. The compound is known as big thyroid function booster.
#5: Oily Supplements
Getting enough omega-3 fatty acids for your thyroid could be a constant struggle.
Even though you’ve included enough fish in your meals, it might not be sufficient for a proper function.
Using fish oil supplements will increase the weight loss potential.
It will improve your body mass index and decrease the chance of you developing weight issues.
#6: The Magical Potion
Yes. I’m talking about Apple Cider Vinegar. I call it the magic potion because there are so many things you can do with it. It’s just amazing.
It plays the role of balancing the hormones in people who have the underactive thyroid problem.
The ACV does a great job reducing your appetite and encourages weight loss.
If you have a strong stomach, swallowing a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar won’t be a problem for you.
If not, mix it in a glass of water and drink it up.
