Advice for weight loss in hypothyroidism for women

Most often weight gain is due to hypothyroidism. It is because of low production of thyroid hormones know as Thyroxine, so it is necessary to keep up the metabolism, which help to regulate hormones. Research says "women are ten times more risk to have hypothyroidism than men."
Advice for weight loss in hypothyroidism for women

Weight loss in Hypothyroidism is difficult, why?  Let's discuss this in the detail.

As you all know, if our body is not able to burn more calories than we consume, it accumulate in the body and it is a cause of weight gain.

In simple term, metabolism is a process to use your energy (calories) in the body taken by food. An under-active thyroid, slow down the metabolism process and so calorie burning process also become slow. Understand with example, if you consume 1500 calories each day and you are able to burn only 500 calories for the day, the remaining 1000 calories will store in your body and increase your weight, and this will happen each day due to Hypothyroidism.

So what is the solution. There is only a solution that you have to stick on healthy diet plan and routine if you want to lose and control your weight.

Now look at the diet which help to control thyroid function:

Iodine : It is important to balance hormone, the foods like Bananas, parsley, Frozen Yogurt, are rich in iodine. You may also use iodized salt.

High-Fiber Foods : Lentils, Apples, Oranges, Pears, Oat bran, Strawberries, Nuts, Flax seeds, Beans, Dried peas,  Cucumbers, Celery, and Carrots.

Tyrosine Foods - These type of foods help to generate thyroid hormones. These are: lentils, and low-fat milk, yogurt, cheese, banana, avocado, potatoes .

Water :Water is a vital thing, our body is composed of approx 50 to 75 percent water, according to this, we ignore around 75% health of our body if we don't drink enough amount of water daily. water regulates our internal body in various way. It transport the metabolized food in the bloodstream. It also helps in detoxification. The average intake of water for a woman is 2.2 liters a day and for a man it is around 3 liters. Take enough water daily to boost your metabolism.

Coconut oil : It boost thyroid function, increases digestion. According to research, it consist of unique fatty acids which boost metabolism process and supply huge energy. It also promote weight loss.

Reduce sugar intake : Sugar weaken the performance of thyroid gland, it is good to cut sugar consumption in hypothyroidism.


Some physical activities can also help to increase your metabolism:

Reduce stress : Stress badly affect thyroid performance, so avoid stress as much as possible. Try meditation daily 20-30 minutes, there is no any special method for meditation:- Be relax and don't bother about your thoughts in your mind.

Exercise :  Due to hypothyroidism metabolism become slow down, to increase it do exercise daily at least 30 minutes,  you can do swimming, walking, cycling, hiking, dancing,  push-ups etc. Avoid dull lifestyle walk 10,000 steps a day

Yoga : Yoga helps to regulate the activity of thyroid gland. Below yoga may help to decrease the medicine need for hypothyroidism:
Shoulder Stand (Sarvangasan)
Plough Pose (halasana)
Fish Pose (matsyaasana)
Lion Pose  (Singhasana)
Inverted Pose (Viparitakarani)

In hypothyroidism, diet, exercise and stress free routine is very important, you may take natural supplements also. In my experience and research that Homeopathy is the best solution to cure thyroid disease, we all know that Homeopathy's medicine is made up from natural Substance,  it activate your body to heal or re-balance itself.

There are many other symptoms of hypothyroidism such as Fatigue, Increased sensitivity to cold, constipation, swelling in joints, hoarseness, messed memory, weakness, disordered menstrual, sadness. Consult your doctor before taking any diet or treatment.

You can lose your weight, even if you think that you don't. But need to do it religiously. Keep patience and continue with your plan.
