Lose Weight With This Thyroid Diet
Lose Weight With This Thyroid Diet by Terry Ryan
Okay, I am going to admit right away…that I just found out about this diet in WOMAN’S WORLD and blessed by the man himself…Dr. Oz. (Oh, Dr. Oz, my mother has a crush on you.) There it was, the magazine at the checkout counter with Dr. Oz’s charming face staring at me with a title in giant font – NEW FROM DR.OZ 60-SECOND THYROID FIX. And under it in a playful and smaller font was… It can make you 35 lbs slimmer.
Now what’s a chubby, hypothyroid woman to do? That’s right, I couldn’t resist and yanked that magazine off the rack and threw it on the checkout belt. $1.99 later it was mine. When I arrived home I sat my derriere on the couch and checked the contents for the only part I wanted to read. There it was, page 20! What secret 60 second fix was it going to reveal? (I’ll try anything.)
Totally intrigued, I read through the article as quickly as I could for the 60 SECOND FIX! There it was, near the bottom of the page. The number 1 thyroid boost is to eat 30 grams of protein to fire up your metabolism.
I am…yep…a breakfast skipper. My morning begins with water and my gel cap of Triosint, my hormone replacement medicine. Then I head to the pickleball courts where I play for around 2 hours which equals approximately 10k steps on the pedometer. After that, I pick my 85 year-old mother up for lunch, and I usually have a green or fruit salad. Mom will eat pasta or a sub. I love fruit and if I have any kind of animal protein, it will be grilled chicken. Dinner is another salad, maybe a baked potato. I avoid gluten, dairy, and white sugar, and I haven’t lost a pound in over a year. I also am a juicer. Lately, a lazy juicer and will buy a fresh veggie/fruit juice at the juice cafe. I’ve burned out 2 juicers (juicers in a couple of years). All this healthy eating has given me my energy back, but losing weight is still a struggle. I’m looking for the secret.
Here is my favorite juice recipe:
1 Raw organic beet
2 Stalks of celery
1/4 Piece of fresh ginger
Place all the ingredients through the juicer and store any leftover juice in glass jars with tops and refrigerator to keep fresh. Use on day two. I drink about 8 ounces at a time, 2 times a day. Please use organic produce.
I am going to try this diet from Woman’s Day for 30 Days to see if I can lose a few pounds. Wish me luck. If you want to find out if it worked or not you can sign up for my updates. I will never use your email to try sell you anything. I’ll only send you new EARTH SHATTERING NEWS about thyroid health and Hashimoto’s disease.
Here is the diet.
Start with this breakfast shake:
In a blender put:
- 1 Tbs of almond butter
- 1 Tbs of cacao nibs
- 1 Cup of unsweetened chocolate almond milk (Do they make UNSWEETENED almond milk?)
- 1 Serving fiber supplement (I’m going to use Heather’s Tummy Fiber that I use already.
- 1 Serving of chocolate protein powder
- Pinch of sea salt.
I’m sure if you cannot find chocolate protein powder, you can use vanilla or plain. Do not put any sugar in this drink in fact avoid all sugar while on this diet.
Have 3 oz of turkey, 1 oz. of feta cheese, 3 sliced strawberries on a bed of green salad with slice sweet onion. Drizzle fresh lemon juice and a tablespoon of olive oil.
Grilled chicken or steak (4 oz.), unlimited steamed broccoli with 2 tsp of olive oil, lemon juice. 1/2 Baked sweet potato.
There are other option meals to have for lunch and dinner. You are allowed one cheat meal per week that does not contain chemicals or high-fructose corn syrup,
Be sure to drink plenty of water. Coffee and tea are fine. (As always, get doctor’s approval before changing your diet.)
This diet is originates from the book, The Hormone Boost
(From Amazon) New York Times bestselling author Dr. Natasha Turner returns with a simple and effective weight-loss plan that harnesses the power of the six hormones linked to strength, energy, and weight loss.
When it comes to metabolism, energy, immunity, memory, mood, and strength, who doesn’t need a boost now and then? The Hormone Boost is the first book to provide an extensive, scientific overview of the six hormones that influence weight loss. Although it is widely accepted that the thyroid hormones control weight loss efforts, Dr. Turner reveals how the impact of five other hormones―testosterone and DHEAs, adiponectin, growth hormone, adrenaline, and glucagon―are equally important when trying to lose weight.
In Dr. Turner’s previous bestselling books, she taught you how to identify and solve hormonal imbalances. In The Hormone Boost, she focuses on optimizing what’s right and includes a revolutionary plan that has been proven effective for everyone, not just those experiencing symptoms of hormone disruption. With more than 60 recipes and a simple Pick-4 guide to creating meals, smoothies, and salads, the book makes getting the right balance of carbs, fat, and protein easy.
The Hormone Boost is chock-full of tips and positive research findings and features daily progress tracking aids and a weekly workout plan that emphasizes strength training. The book also includes advice about supplements for accelerating fat loss, improving sleep, digestion, and skin appearance, as well as building strong muscles and bones. You will find inspiration in the success stories from Dr. Turner’s clinical practice and TV belly-fat makeovers.
Rather than merely targeting weight loss, The Hormone Boost offers total wellness. No more deprivation, irritability, hunger, or fatigue that so often accompany diets. Dr. Turner’s plan will have you energized from the start!
Sounds like it may work. I’ll let you know.
Thanks for reading.
