The sad reality of the modern day world that we’re living in right now is the fact that if you are sick… you’re doctor is more likely to prescribe you with some pills than work with you to find out the exact cause of the health issues that you’re experiencing.
But the reality is that when you’re dealing with a condition such as hypothyroidism… taking a natural approach such as improving the quality of one’s diet will often result in the symptoms that you are experiencing to drastically go down without you having to experience any sort of side effects.
The truth is that no matter how many pills you take, you’re never going to actually overcome hypothyroidism for good if you’re not getting the basic elements of your life sorted out… things such as diet.
The most important step you can take onto the path of health and fitness is to make sure that you implement a really solid hypothyroidism diet that you can follow with ease for the rest of your life.
If you’re able to act on this one single step then believe me you are going to notice that the pills that your doctor has given you actually work really well.
Now the reality is that with a disease such as hypothyroidism, there are many, many people out there that claim there way of doing things is the best way.
You can be sure that pretty much every single so called expert out there has a different view on the steps that need to be taken in order to overcome hypothyroidism for good. But with all the information that is out there, it can often become extremely overwhelming to know what works and what doesn’t.
But if we stop living in the dream world for a moment and just take a look at reality as it is then we will come to find that pretty much all the guides out there on the subject of overcoming hypothyroidism are indeed just out of date and the solutions they present just don’t work.
But if you just step back for a moment and just start to do a little digging you will find that there are an amazing amount of research studies out there that contain scientifically proven ways to help you overcome hypothyroidism for good!
However the reason you don’t know anything about these solid methods is because it takes about 10 years for all that scientific data to trickle down to the entire mass population.
This is the very reason why most people will do nothing but take the medicine that their doctors have prescribed them with and never actively try to improve their lifestyle for the better. Not improving your diet and your way of life in general to a more healthier way will ultimately result in you doing more harm than good over the long term.
Now I can’t expect many people will change even after reading this article but I do hope that a few of you out there will actually take what I share in this article and take action on the tips… because if you do then you will eventually be able to overcome hypothyroidism for good!
You will literally begin to notice an instant improvement in your health once you begin to consume the right foods.
In the paragraphs that follow, you’ll find the top 5 foods that I recommend every single person out there with hypothyroidism begin to eat on a regular basis.
To help you get the best results in the shortest possible time, I’ve done my best to not only give you a list of the top 5 foods but I’ve also taken the time to break each food down so you fully understand why you need to eat it and exactly how it’s going to help you overcome your under active thyroid for good!
Before we continue you must keep in mind to never, ever believe anything anyone says regardless of their credentials. You have to become more self reliant and start to do your own research and actually verify any of the claims that people are making.
1. Avoid Eating Foods That Are Bad For Your Thyroid
This is by far the most important tip that I’m going to be sharing with you today… so please make sure that you’re paying attention because you will see great results if you do.
Of course, this tip is really effective but keep in mind that it’s very controversial.
The sad truth is that pretty much all the health foods that you find in the supermarket these days are not actually that healthy for you in the first place.
Rather these so called health foods will actually be contributing to the symptoms of hypothyroidism that you happen to experience over the course of a day.
These foods that I’m talking about include anything that has soy in them.
The things that you must at all costs avoid from this moment forward are soybeans, soy milk, edamame, and tofu.
The number one reason that you’re going to have to completely avoid soy products from now on is because they are very estrogenic… this basically means that they will actively prevent your thyroid from secreting the thyroid hormones they need to function.
The reason that I’m actually sharing this point with you is because you’ll find a lot of the hypothyroidism diet programs out there that actively promote the consumption of soy!
You see a lot of the people that have created these programs have not come across the latest scientific data which shows that soy is actually very harmful to the people that have an under active thyroid.
Another food which a lot of people claim is healthy for you but you are going to want to avoid is polyunsaturated fats.
Yup, again you are going to find a lot of the so called experts out there who will tell you that these types of fats are very good for you but I can tell you from reading a lot of the latest scientific research that the reality is quite different.
When you have a low thyroid, these fats will only result in you getting a lot of damage. The reality is that these fats are just going to completely prevent your thyroid from doing what they need to be doing.
The first thing these fats will do is actively prevent your thyroid from releasing any amount of thyroid hormone.
The second thing is that any thyroid hormone that is already in your body will not be taken to the places where it is actually needed. The third thing is that these fats will actually prevent your body from using the thyroid hormone in any way.
I am telling you right now that this information is all facts that I’m presenting to you. You can literally check it out for yourself, which as I’ve mentioned before is something that I recommend you do.
Believe me, the most powerful thing that you can do right now is make sure that you completely avoid all the foods out there that contain the ingredients that I’ve mentioned above, only because it will just cause your thyroid to get worse and worse over time. This isn’t at all ideal if you’re serious about improving your health for the better and actually overcoming your hypothyroidism for good!
2. Start Eating A Lot More Saturated Fats
Yes, you are going to find that there is a lot of negative press when it comes to eating saturated fats but let me tell you right now that these fats are actually very good for you.
But you see the people that are against this form of fat are actually just basing their theories on research studies that were outdated a very long time ago.
However if you just take 5 minutes of your time and take a look at the plethora of recent studies that have been carried out then you will come to see that foods that contain saturated fats are in fact extremely good for your health.
The greatest benefit that you are going to actually experience is the fact that saturated fats will help your body overcome the negative side effects from any of the polyunsaturated fats that you end up consuming.
The other benefit that you will experience from consuming saturated fats is that they will help to maintain your insulin levels which will ultimately result in your blood sugar levels remaining nice and balanced.
The reason it is ideal to make sure that your blood sugar levels are balanced is because this will mean that your body will not release any harmful stress hormones.
Stress hormone is really terrible, because it will just result in your hypothyroidism getting worse and worse over time.
If you’re absolutely serious about overcoming hypothyroidism for good then trust me it is going to be in your interest to make sure that you consume a lot more saturated fats than you do the polyunsaturated ones.
But at the same time you need to make sure that the polyunsaturated fats you do actually consume are extremely high quality… as with every other food that you eat!
3. Begin Consuming A Lot More Fruit
As part of your new hypothyroidism diet, I would recommend that you start to eat a lot more fruit.
The really great thing about fruit is the fact that it contains a lot of potassium, which is very important for your body in terms of getting your blood sugar levels balanced.
From doing quite a bit of research, I can tell you right now that one of the best things that you can do for your health is minimize the amount of insulin that your body produces… because in the long term this will help you to lessen the symptoms of hypothyroidism that you actually experience.
Now the vast majority of fruit out there is really great for you, but there are a few select varieties that you are going to want to completely avoid such as Avocados.
Avocados are something that you are going to want to avoid for the simple fact that they contain a ton of unsaturated fats which aren’t that great for you… especially when you happen to be suffering from hypothyroidism.
Believe me, one of the best things that you’re ever going to do is start eating more fruits… so make sure that you take this point on board!
4. Start To Eat More Salt
Truth be told, there’s far too much negativity when it comes to consuming salt, and pretty much all of the bad press surrounding it is just plain myth.
If you’re absolutely serious about overcoming hypothyroidism for good then you are going to have to start looking at the facts and stop making silly assumptions.
Trust me, salt i.e. sodium is a mineral that is very, very good for your body, and in fact it is something that your body requires in good amounts. One of the reasons why your body needs it is because it’s used to keep your blood pressure stable.
Aside from this very important role, salt has other benefits that will help you especially if you happen to be suffering from hypothyroidism.
One of the most common symptoms of hypothyroidism is a condition that is known as Edema. An individual that experiences this condition will basically find that the cell in their body will take in more water than they actually need.
However the side effect of your cells taking in all that water is that they will end up excreting a lot of sodium which will pass out via your cells and out of your body through your urine.
If this process continues over a long period of time then you’re going to find that your metabolism will begin to really slow down which will of course result in your body releasing more and more stress hormones which can actually result in you experiencing a serious case of insomnia, especially when it’s left untreated.
Obviously this is not great news, and not what you want to hear when your main goal is to overcome hypothyroidism for good!
Sodium is most commonly found in salt, so you have to make sure that you are eating a good amount of it from this moment forward.
While too much salt is not good for you, the reality is that you still need to consume a lot more than most people think is necessary.
5. Start Consuming Bone Broth On a Regular Basis
The likelihood is that you’ve probably never in your life even heard of bone broth, let alone tried it!
But believe me, it’s one of the best sources of protein that is out there, and something you have to start consuming on a regular basis.
Go back to the 1900’s and you would find that bone broth was a very common staple in most people’s diets.
However the reality is largely different in the modern day world that we live in today. Instead of bone broth you will find most people are busy consuming junk down at McDonald’s.
So if you want to help your thyroid make a positive transformation then it’s going to be in your interest to start eating a lot of bone broth. It is a great way to supplement your hypothyroidism treatment.
Bone broth contains a ton of really great nutrients and minerals and on top of that it’s great for your body to digest.
There is no doubt in the fact that meat is a really wonderful source of protein but bone broth has the additional benefit of containing a lot of anti inflammatory amino acids which you’re never going to find in any of the meat you’re used to eating.
The reality is that pretty much all the information that I share with you in this article is rather controversial but the good news is that none of it is theory but rather it is all based upon solid scientific research!
The main idea behind writing this article was to help each and every one of you know exactly which foods you need to be eating to really help you get healthy in record time.
The better you are at making these foods a regular part of your hypothyroidism diet, the faster your health is going to turn around for the better. And pretty soon you are going to find yourself become a super fit individual with a ton of energy!
