In this video I go over the 5 BEST Diets for patients with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. These diets have all been used by me in my clinic and have helped other Hashimoto’s patients lose weight and feel better.
With all the information out there it can get confusing on which diet you should be following… this video will help you understand which diet you should be focusing on by tailoring it to YOUR body.
The diets I go over:
1. Elimination diet or food sensitivity diet
– Who should use this diet? those with multiple food allergies, post nasal drip, acid reflux or history of asthma/eczema
2. The autoimmune paleo diet or the autoimmune protocol Diet (abbreviated AIP diet)
– Who should use this diet? Not everyone! I recommend patients who have a personal history of multiple autoimmune conditions or those who have failed less restrictive diets
3. The gluten free diet
– Who should use this diet? Most patients should at least consider going gluten free, dairy free and soy free if they have Hahsimoto’s. This is THE place to start.
4. The paleo diet
Who should use this diet? Those with a history of depression, anxiety, gut imbalances or acne.
This is also another great place to start
5. The low FODMAP’s Diet
Who should use this diet? Those who have a diagnosis of SIBO or yeast overgrowth or those with who experience gas/bloating or abdominal distention after meals.
3 Diets to AVOID With Hashimoto’s:
1. Low fat diets
2. Very low carbohydrate diets or nutritional ketosis
3. Very low calorie diets
All three of these can lead to worsening thyroid function!
