The foods that you eat can either positively or negatively impact your thyroid. This video is all about avoiding certain foods which have been scientifically proven to inhibit thyroid function in some way.

The list of foods to avoid if you have thyroid disease includes:

#1. Refined sugar
– Sugar can cause insulin resistance which can negatively impact thyroid function.

#2. *Gluten
– Up to 2-5% of people with Hashimoto’s also have Celiac disease. In addition, many more have non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

#3. *Dairy
– In a recent study, 8 weeks of removing dairy caused a reduction in TSH levels among patients with Hashimoto’s.

#4. Alcohol
– Alcohol is cytotoxic to thyroid cells and suppresses both TSH and TRH.

#5. Trans-Fat
– Trans fat can negatively impact thyroid hormone production.

#6. Industrial seed oils and fats
– These fats may cause inflammation which reduces T4 to T3 conversion.

#7. Highly processed Soy
– Soy can theoretically block iodine uptake into your thyroid gland and reduce thyroid hormone absorption.

#8. Frozen and highly processed foods
– Frozen and highly processed foods contain preservatives which may block or interfere with thyroid function.

#9. *Legumes/Beans
– Beans and legumes contain lectins and goitrogens which may block thyroid function.

#10. *Coffee
– Coffee can suppress TSH and reduce T3 and T4 levels after consumption.

Foods marked with an * have special conditions which should be considered (more in the video or found directly on the blog post).
