Below you find guides for implementing the thyroid promoting diet, which is outlined in the hypothyroid treatment program into your daily routines.
The meal guide presents examples of dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, using foods that support thyroid function.
The liver needs glucose to convert the inactive thyroid hormone T4 to the active thyroid hormone T3. Therefore the meal guide also includes ideas for snacks, that help stabilize blood sugar throughout the day, thus improving metabolism.
A good liver function and thus good thyroid function is also dependent on a high daily intake of good quality protein. Our protein guide teaches you how to get enough good quality proteins into your diet.
A high parathyroid hormone is involved in inflammatory diseases and hormonal disturbances. The parathyroid hormone can be kept down into a safe range with a high daily calcium intake. Thus a diet rich in calcium is very useful for preventing inflammatory conditions.
The calcium guide gives information about how much calcium is needed per day as well as the calcium content in different foods, helping you track your daily calcium intake.
The backgrounds of my nutritional recommendations are presented in the hypothyroid treatment program and based on the research of Dr. Ray Peat.
If you are not yet familiar with the work of Dr. Ray Peat, I strongly recommend that you go through the information of the program first.
The diet is based on protective fats (such as coconut oil) good carbohydrates (mainly from fruits and certain vegetables ) and high-quality proteins, including eggs, milk, shellfish as well as certain meats and high protein vegetables.
Our diet recommendations are suitable for vegetarians, but not vegans. For more details about our diet and health recommendations see our hypothyroid treatment program.
