By Joe (MSc Nutrition), Dietitian 20 Comments Losing weight and keeping it off can be a struggle. But if you break down the process into small steps, and tick each box as you go, weight loss comes much easier. This guide covers the 6 fundamental steps required to successfully lose weight with an underactive thyroid. I wanted to begin with a nutrition recommendation, but correcting your thyroid medication first priority. If your medication is not helping to correct TSH and thyroid hormone levels, as well as relieve symptoms, then weight loss goes from difficult to impossible. Work with your health care provider to determine what type of medication is better for you, and also to find the optimal dose required.
Summary: It is fundamental to work with your doctor to explore what type and dose of thyroid medication is best for you.
That said, carbs in the form of added sugars and highly refined starches are unhealthy and unnecessary.
In fact, the average American adult’s consumption of added sugar increased by more than 30% in the last 30 years, with children consuming approximately 20% more. This is done by limiting intake of junk foods, flavoured drinks (including juice), alcohol, white bread, most cereals and muesli bars, and a good portion of packaged food in your supermarket’s “health food” aisle.
Now it’s unrealistic (and unfair) to expect yourself to completely avoid added sugar every day of the year. Start by not having junk foods at home, or at least keep them out of sight in a cupboard you never use. Summary: Added sugar makes up a large portion of the excess calories an average person consumes each day. If you want to lose weight with an underactive thyroid, these should be the foundation of almost every meal you make, and plated first when serving.
Studies show high protein diets may also reduce obsessive thoughts about food by 60% and cut desire for late-night snacks by half (3, 4). Protein is also the muscle-building nutrient, so a high protein diet complements regular exercise.
The nutrient-density of meals is even more important for those with hypothyroidism and other autoimmune diseases, where nutrient absorption and deficiency are more common. Emphasis goes to green leafy vegetables, mushrooms and cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. Veggies are also our greatest source of fibre, a nutrient that feeds the healthy bacteria in our gut. It is critical that your diet contains adequate quantities in order to optimise thyroid hormone production and metabolism.
Therefore, it’s thought that low selenium levels contribute to hypothyroidism through alternate mechanisms related to iodine.
In fact, the metabolism of zinc and thyroid hormones are closely interlinked, which is why a deficiency can lead to alopecia (hair loss) (7). While zinc deficiency is very uncommon in the developed world, it’s still recommended to eat a variety of zinc-rich foods (8). Iodine is also important for thyroid health, but in reality insufficient iodine levels that can harm the thyroid is extremely rare in developed countries (9). You’re much better off focusing on selenium and zinc-rich foods, many of which contain iodine anyways. Summary: Consuming a diet naturally rich in selenium and zinc is critical for maintaining a healthy thyroid and metabolism. However, if you want to kick-start your weight loss then regular exercise is the best way to do it. Weight loss ultimately comes down to burning more energy (calories) than you consume- this is an undeniable law of physics. Regularly lifting weights (or bodyweight exercises) is also highly beneficial, especially if mobility is an issue for you. Known as resistance exercise, it still helps burns additional calories, but with the added benefit of building lean muscle.
There are numerous resistance exercise programs on Youtube for beginners, and you can do it all at home if you invest in a pair of dumbbells or even one kettle bell. This step is only for those with Hashimoto’s or another autoimmune disease, and only recommended if you already consistently follow steps 1 to 5 but are still very overweight.
The Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) is an elimination diet that temporarily cuts out numerous food groups including dairy, grains, nuts and seeds, legumes, nightshade vegetables and more.
The AIP goes by the premise that certain food chemicals and compounds cause low-grade inflammation in the gut of individuals with an autoimmune disease (in this case Hashimoto’s disease). By removing the everyday trigger foods in your diet, inflammation subsides giving your body the opportunity to recover and “reset”; known medically as remission. Although only temporary, elimination diets like AIP are highly restrictive and can get complicated if you take medications for other medical conditions or are at risk of nutrient deficiencies. Summary: Trialling the Autoimmune Protocol is an option if you have Hashimoto’s disease and have found steps 1 to 5 are no help. Prioritise sleep: Alongside poor diet and exercise, short sleep duration is one of the strongest risk factors for obesity.
Thyroid support supplements: Anecdotal reports suggest supplements can give you more energy, at least for the first few months of use.
Use smaller plates and small spoons: Studies show the bigger the plate and the bigger the cutlery, the more calories we consume (13). Plate your meals first: Instead of putting all the prepared food at the table (like a buffet), plate your meal first and then sit down. Be mindful: Mindful eating is about becoming more aware of your experiences, physical cues and feelings about food.
I have been overweight for most of my adult life, especially after my children were born, I have been to many slimming classes lost dome weight and stopped going. Hi Jane it sounds like you would benefit from some inspiration from others who are in a similar situation. Can’t see how it would be a problem, but ask your doctor first because it is a big diet change. I have been doing some research, nothing seems to be cut and dry with hyperthyroidism, and it stinks, just a few questions, hope you can enlighten me a bit, but it says gluten free, but can we eat like whole grain bread, pasta etc?
Well its kind of weird, the tests were done probly 3 months ago and it said my tsh and t4 were in the normal range but the t3 was a bit over the range, which normally means hyper, but I’m gaining weight, fast, so they gave me a med, had the blood work ran again, my tsh t4 and t3 are now in the normal range, I know normal range doesn’t mean much, but my inflammation was up?
I went in today, they are going to send me the results of my scan, but she says I either have a viral problem with the medication, so she told me to stop taking it and come back in 6 weeks, said I could have graves disease and she’s not ruling out hoshimotos, so, what does this tell me? I have been on levothyroxine for 2 years now… im up and down with my weight and iam up and down with fatiuge ect. Can taking thyroid medication before bed be helpful versus taking it in the morning and waiting 2 hours before eating. But it needs to be fasting stomach if you take it at night too- so you must not eat something for 2 hours at night, then take it before sleep. Learn the secrets to losing 50 pounds, even if you're dieting and exercising and still not shedding that unwanted weight! Tackle underactive thyroid and depressed metabolism and discover how to break that diet plateau in the next 10 minutes! Find Out Whether Low Thyroid or Slow Metabolism Is Causing Your Weight Gain or Diet Plateau And Solve Your Weight Loss Problems Forever! If you're sticking to your diet faithfully but it's not working, or you're doing more running, aerobics or other exercise but you're still not losing weight, then you are probably feeling like nothing will ever get you into that little black dress or skinny swimsuit, get you noticed in the bar, or give you the energy to run about with your kids.
Maybe your weight was fine until recently, when you started to gain weight without increasing your calorie intake, and now nothing seems to shift the pounds, no matter how hard you try. Or perhaps you lost weight before but then you put it all back again, and as you've probably already found, with each successive diet, it gets harder to lose the weight.
You wonder whether you could have a problem with your metabolism such as an underactive thyroid or a low metabolic rate. What you need is not a one-fits-all diet plan, it's a personalized action plan that recognizes you are an individual, with your own individual biochemical makeup. If, like me, you've been searching for answers to these problems, you'll know that it's very difficult to find them.
The problem was that up until then I had been following the traditional advice that to lose weight, you should eat fewer calories and exercise more.
For example, too few calories can make your body think there is a famine and send you into 'starvation mode' by running more efficiently on fewer calories.
There are lots of other hormonal and biochemical factors which affect how and when you can lose weight. The significance of these biochemical and hormonal factors is only just starting to be recognized, and it was the brand-new research into this neglected but crucial aspect of dieting that I had stumbled upon. I started to read the many books and papers written by doctors, nutritionists, dieticians, researchers, exercise physiologists and others who have taken a special interest in learning about how your body responds to weight-loss attempts. I discovered that there are 15 main reasons for weight loss problems, any or all of which could be affecting you. What my research taught me was that official healthy eating advice, which focuses on calorie counting and reducing fat, ignores the reality of how your body responds differently to different food groups, and to drastic or long term dieting. Furthermore, official advice on healthy eating and dieting fails to recognize how nutritional deficiencies, allergies, toxic load, candida, stress, insulin imbalance, prescribed medicines and many other factors can hinder your attempts to lose weight.
After many hundreds of hours of researching the latest knowledge about these seemingly disparate conditions, it became apparent how they are all connected and can singly or collectively be the reason you can't lose weight. And even if you haven't got a sluggish thyroid, you can still have a low metabolic rate which has become depressed as a result of constant dieting. If I had relied upon the information about how to lose weight that you find in doctors' offices, diet magazines and the media, I would never have solved my weight problem! If I hadn't spent all those years researching the real reasons for my weight loss problems, I would never have become slim. You'll also learn how it is that huge numbers of dieters are needlessly struggling with their weight and other related problems such as fatigue and inability to exercise, simply because underactive thyroid is such a hidden and unrecognized problem. Why you should expect 100 per cent improvement of your hypothyroid symptoms, and not be fobbed off with 'What do you expect, you're hypothyroid'.
And if you are low thyroid, you may just find that many other symptoms you have suffered with for years melt away too, along with the fat!

My husband and I are both calorie counting and I was at a complete standstill plateau for about 3.5 - 4 weeks. By the way, this book is not about blaming all weight problems on overeating, and it's not about blaming overeating on 'emotional' issues, either. Underactive thyroid and low metabolism are just two examples of problems you may have without realizing it, and which may be affecting your ability to lose weight.
Here's the essential point about successful and permanent weight loss: you need a personalized, methodical process for identifying and eliminating all the potential factors that might prevent your diet or exercise plan from working.
In the book, you'll discover all these little-known yet critical diet saboteurs and how to eliminate them.

While Levothyroxine is on average more effective, Armour is reportedly much better tolerated. But you need to begin taking actionable steps that help you cut back and form healthier habits. That is, it has a unique ability to reduce appetite and therefore your overall caloric intake too.
Studies show that long-term low fibre intake will completely throw out the balance of your gut bacteria; the effects on the gut health of mice was irreversible (5). That’s the reason the thyroid has the highest selenium content (per gram of tissue) of all our organs (6).
Being active is the only way to burn additional calories, and also improves aspects of health that even perfect nutrition can’t provide, such as strength and mobility. Research shows that low-intensity exercise that lasts longer – such as regular long walks – are just as effective for weight loss, especially if you are just starting out (10).
The more muscle you have, the faster your metabolism and the less likely you are to fall ill (11).
It is said to have emerged from the Paleo movement (and sometimes referred to as Autoimmune Paleo), but to describe it as Paleo seems too basic. Low-grade inflammation appears to be a driving factor behind many modern health conditions, including autoimmune diseases, metabolic disorder and obesity too (12). This is what celiac patients experience when they go gluten-free, or most IBS patients when they follow a low FODMAP diet. That means we still cannot reliably say what foods influence autoimmune diseases and their symptoms (nor to what extent). It may help with weight loss given its (theoretical) influence on inflammation and its highly restrictive nature.
Research suggests the more water we drink before meals, the fewer calories we eat overall (14).
I recommend searching for hypothyroidism on facebook groups, there are many who are successfully doing exactly what you have described.
