Hypothyroidism and Weight Loss
Welcome to the final segment of our journey about Hypothyroidism and
weight loss. We’re going to get down to the nitty-gritty! Up to now,
you’ve digested valuable information about eating plans, weight loss
books and different diet options.
Whether you ultimately choose a structured diet plan or design your
own, you now have the tools to discern between fad, calorie
deprivation and nutritious diets.
We’d suggest looking at the action of dieting in a different
light. Because once you find what is harmonic with your Hypothyroidism, weight loss will follow and you’ll want to stay with it for life!
Why do most diets fail? Either they leave out complete food groups,
restrict calories to the point you are always hungry or are so
complicated, you just give up.
Don’t give up! Here are some easy plans to follow:
Weight Watchers – teaches you how to make healthy,
but filling, choices. You’ll eat less by following the 360 program,
which allocates points to food, on the basis of fiber, calories,
protein, carbs and how many calories are burned during the digestive
You are your own diet master on Weight Watchers as total flexibility
of eating is the key. Also, you’ll inherit a built-in support system of
fellow Weight Watchers. Due to the low cost of joining and support you
will receive this is great option.
Mediterranean Diet – Not only is the Mediterranean Plan considered the world’s healthiest diet, it’s easy to follow because you get to choose food according to personal likes and dislikes.
Looking at the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid, you might be surprised to see that “exercise” is literally a part of the plan. With a heavy emphasis on fruits, vegetables, olive oil, nuts, beans, whole grains, what’s not to enjoy? You can even have your red meat and desserts for special occasions.
Mayo Clinic – To have been designed in a medical setting, the Mayo Clinic Diet is surprisingly based on positive attitude. The premise of the teachings is to help you re-vision your eating habit patterns by replacing unhealthy foods with nutritious choices.
The slogan “Lose it” and “Live it” takes you through a two week program of not-counting calories and eating all the fruit and veggies you want. After the first two weeks you’ll learn how many calories you can have, yet still lose weight.
Nobody enjoys “going on” a diet so let’s think about this as eating well and taking good care of ourselves so we can be symptom free. Yes, you have impediments with Hypothyroidism and weight loss – but, above all things – you are beautiful, just as you are!
