Indian weight loss diet for Hypothyroidism (1 Month plan)

Preparing a diet plan for hypothyroidism can be extremely complex since there are lots of limitations on what works best and what won’t.

For example smoothies made from raw broccoli can be an excellent fat cutter drink but thyroid patients cannot consume it in large quantity as it stimulates the thyroid glands in negative way.

Similarly there are tons of veggies such as collard greens, Mustard greens, Cabbage and red cabbage which you may have always thought to be healthy, but it isn’t.

Let me tell you why…

In general green leafy vegetables are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. It makes a perfect choice for an average individual, in fact it acts as a super food.

But this very super food becomes problematic if you have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism, meaning you simply cannot consume anything without proper knowledge.

Raw vegetables like cabbage and other cruciferous vegetables interfere with the production of thyroid hormones, therefore not making an ideal choice for you.

Due to the complex nature of this disease, it really becomes difficult to make healthy choices and keep thyroid in check through diet.

Therefore, looking at the complexity of the disease and the choice of food I have prepared a One month Indian weight loss diet plan for Hypothyroidism.

Now before you could jump on to the diet plan it’s important you understand what is Thyroid and its importance.



What is Thyroid?

Thyroid description

Thyroid is a butterfly shaped large ductless gland located in the neck, near the base of your throat.  It produces hormones in your body which controls many important functions such as how fast you burn fat, how fast your heart beats, insulin response and so on.

It nearly affects every cell in your body (1).

When your thyroid gland does not produce enough Thyroid hormone it’s known and underactive thyroid or Hypothyroidism.

Generally, hypothyroidism affects approx. 2% population around world. And when it comes to hypothyroidism, it’s the women who are at greater risk as compared to men (2).

It is estimated that nearly 90% patients suffering from hypothyroidism are due to Hashimoto Thyroiditis, a condition where your own immune system attacks the Thyroid gland (3).

Remaining population who have underactive thyroid are the ones who generally suffer due to Iodine deficiency, hereditary causes and certain type of drugs and medications.

If we look at the history of Hypothyroidism, it’s at the constant uptrend and there is a good reason to it. In today’s modern day lifestyle we have included too much processed foods in our diet.

In India around 42 million suffers from Thyroid disease and is spreading like an epidemic (4).

Remember it’s now or never.

Your body can be forgiving if you help your body to self-heal. The answer to control thyroid is simple, either force your immune system to correct itself or take pills throughout your life.

I am not saying quit pills right away, instead follow a healthy lifestyle and an awesome thyroid diet, which I will show you and results should follow.




Symptoms of Hypothyroidism

The thing with hypothyroidism is that it may be non-symptomatic at times, thereby making extremely difficult to take corrective action on time. Having said that some common symptoms that can be an important pointer are:

  • Weight gain and difficulty in losing weight
  • Dry, cool skin
  • Hair fall
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Slow heart rate
  • Depression
  • Hoarseness
  • Constipation
  • Reduced cold tolerance
  • Brittle Nails
  • Elevated cholesterol levels
  • Enlarged thyroid
  • And the list can go on forever as it impacts pretty much every cell in your body

If you are diagnosed with Hypothyroidism, you will most likely with treated with medicine to control the thyroid hormones.

And if you can be little bit intelligent with the choice of food you eat, you can surely overcome Hypothyroidism especially in the initial stages. Millions of people have already achieved that and there are no reasons why you cannot do it.

Yes that’s true, you can control Hypothyroidism with a diet plan that helps your thyroid glands.

Food items that goes well with Hypothyroid diet

Before we prepare any diet plan it’s important to first understand the type of food suitable for hypothyroidism. Not every food items are suitable for those suffering from underactive thyroid.

Foods that may look healthy may not always be good for people suffering from hypothyroidism.

For example Kale or any other cruciferous vegetable, they are extremely healthy and nutritious but when these foods are consumed by those suffering from hypothyroidism, it has a real negative impact.

Therefore, we will first go through the list of Hypothyroidism friendly food first and then try to build an awesome plan around it.

10 ways to make your Hypothyroid Diet plan a success

Make Mypothyroidism diet a success

1.) Consult your doctor and work with your doctor

Very first thing that you need to do is consult your doctor and work with him/her on the dosage of medication.

 Now I know, no doctor will tell you anything about the diet due to obvious reasons but it’s important you keep monitoring your TSR and TSH so that you now your progress and accordingly ask the doctor to reduce the dosage based on the progress you make.

Idea is to reduce the dosage of medication over a period of time as your body heals.

2.) Exercise daily and do yoga

Multiple studies conducted proves that moderate exercise can help improve your thyroid response.

When you wake up early in the morning, after consuming your health drink like Lauki juice and wheatgrass juice go for at least 30 minute walk followed by doing basic yoga exercises.

Yoga exercises like Kapalbhati, Anulom Vilom, Brahmari and Udgeeth Pranayam can significantly help to improve your thyroid conditions.

3.) Quit Alcohol and Smoking

No matter what type of diet plan you follow, it won’t work unless you give your body a chance to detoxify itself.

Consumption of Alcohol and cigarette makes your body acidic and toxic.

The liver and kidney has to work extra hard to expel toxins and when its unable to expel toxins over a period of time it just builds up and then eventually leads to liver failure, kidney failure or even cancer.

So by asking your body to work so hard you are not doing any good to yourself to heal Thyroid.

So before you could start your diet plan make sure you stop consumption of alcohol and cigarette or at least try to start somewhere, you will fail one day, fail the second day but if you keep trying it will help.

4.) Say no to fast foods

Fast foods such as burgers, pizza’s and noodles causes inflammation and makes your immune system weak therefore naturally elevating the Hypothyroidism.

Furthermore, sit’s not only your thyroid that gets affected by this, your digestive system has to work really hard to get it digested.

5.) Gap between meals

Give a good gap between meals, our digestive system is complex. It takes a lot of time to digest a processed or a cooked food.

6.) Avoid So called thyroid supplements

If a medicine and your food can’t cure thyroid, no supplements can cure it either. Only person that can cure your thyroid is you and only medicine that can keep it in check is your diet.

I know we all are desperate for a cure, but to be honest these supplements won’t do any good if you are not disciplined with your dietary habits. So bottom line is avoid the so called supplements and focus on your diet first.

7.) Keep Moving and eat less

Our modern lifestyle is such that, we wake up from bed, go to bathroom, eat breakfast then take a transport and go to office. You don’t give a chance for your body to move.

Try to include at least 30 minutes of exercise every day, research has already proven that exercise can help your thyroid. When you go to office take public transport instead of going by car or bike. This will not only save you money, but it will also help you stay fit.

8.) Have a good sleep

Sleep plays a significant role in regulating your hormones. Lack of sleep disrupts your Vatta, Pitta and Kapha, thereby giving rise to lifestyle diseases such as blood pressure and thyroid. Good sleep can help to keep your thyroid in check.

9.) Keep yourself Hydrated

Our body is 60% water and it uses water as a tool to expel toxins in form of sweat, stool and urine. Keeping yourself hydrated boosts the toxin eliminating process and keeps your kidneys happy.

Drink at least 2 -3 liters of water per day to enjoy optimum health (consult your doctor if you are suffering from excess water retention, other water is good for your body).

10.) Limit Goitrogens and Soy

Even though goitrogens and soy are safe in moderate quantity, it’s always safe to keep those away if you have better food choices.

Consumption of excess goitrogens in form of medication of food can elevate the symptoms. Furthermore, soy products generally doesn’t go well with those suffering from underactive thyroid.

Most of them say it’s safe to eat soy products in cooked form, I way stay away from those if you have better food choices.
