This thyroid meal guide provides ideas for meals that promote thyroid function.
The principles of our thyroid promoting diet advice are outlined in the hypothyroid treatment program! This program describes and explains BiochemNordic’s diet advice in detail, and gives you the basis for changing your diet completely and starting your thyroid recovery using the right food.
Meals for promoting thyroid function:
The focus of this meal diet guide is to provide you with ideas for meals, that help you implement our thyroid promoting diet, using foods that increase the metabolic rate and cellular energy production. The meal guide includes:
In the morning the stress hormones are generally at their highest, due to the long fasting of the night. Thus it is very imported to have some food in the morning and not skip breakfast. Our thyroid promoting breakfast examples provide ideas for light and easy as well as larger meals for breakfast.
Our thyroid promoting lunches gives you ideas for lunches that support metabolism and cellular energy production, and at the same time are easy to eat at work or on the go.
Our dinner examples support thyroid function and cellular energy production. Depending on the number of calories you need on that particular day both light and more comfort food like dinner examples are provided.
Keeping the blood sugar stable is very important for keeping the metabolism up. Because the liver needs glucose to convert the inactive thyroid hormone T4 to the active thyroid hormone T3. Having healthy thyroid supporting snacks in between the main meals thus significantly helps increase cellular energy production. Therefore the meal guide also includes ideas for snacks, that help stabilize blood sugar throughout the day.
Thyroid diet method:
Our thyroid diet is not just another quick fix, instead, it is built on a deep understanding of how the body works on the biochemical level. The main principle is to provide the cells of your body with the best food sources for producing cellular energy. The modern western diet including most diet concepts contains foods that directly suppress thyroid function and cellular energy production, by elimination these and only basing your diet on thyroid supporting foods your body’s energy-producing system is strengthened as your thyroid function is increased!
Our thyroid diet recommendations are based on the amazing research of Dr. Ray Peat. I have used the revolutionizing thyroid diet concepts, in my own hypothyroid recovery and can say with confidence that this diet is different from anything you have ever seen!
