How to Lose Weight With Hypothyroidism

By    |   Tuesday, 03 May 2016 08:55 PM

Weight gain is one of the symptoms of hypothyroidism, or an underactive thyroid. How to lose weight with hypothyroidism may be just a matter of choosing the right foods and including some exercise if allowed.

The American Thyroid Association reports that weight gain
generally associated with hypothyroidism is about five to 10 pounds of body weight, and it is rare to see massive weight gain with an underactive thyroid.

A 1,200-calorie diet is recommended by Dr. Melina Jampolis, a nutrition specialist writing for CNN.

The diet should contain fewer starch carbs, such as breads, pasta, rice, cereal and baked goods. Choosing healthy fats instead of saturated fats provides heart health. Consume fatty fish, nuts, seeds, avocado, and olive or canola oil instead of high-fat butter, creams, sugar, and refined carbohydrates, she advises.

Getting about 90 minutes a day of exercise helps as long as the patient receives permission from a doctor. It is an individual choice, according to Dr. Leonor Corsino at the Duke Center for Metabolic and Weight Loss Surgery in Durham, North Carolina.

“If a person has properly managed their hypothyroid and has the energy, exercise is encouraged,” Corsino told Everyday Health.

A gluten-free diet may help improve the condition and lose weight with hypothyroidism. Gluten is found in breads, pastas, crackers, cereals and processed meats, writes Janet Renee at Livestrong.com. Hypothyroidism may contribute to celiac disease, which often requires following a gluten-free diet.

Avoiding sugars helps to reduce the production of tiny proteins known as cytokines that can promote inflammation, Everyday Health reports. Include leafy green vegetables, tomatoes and fruit, as well as fatty fish and nuts, in an anti-inflammatory diet.

Eat several small, frequent meals instead of three meals a day. Because hypothyroidism slows digestion, eating the smaller meals helps balance blood sugar and avoids the fluctuations of highly processed meals, according to Tina Beaudoin, president of the New Hampshire Association of Naturopathic Doctors.

A food diary helps show people how to lose weight with hypothyroidism. A daily record keeps track of what they eat and drink so they can control their caloric intake.
