2. Start To Eat More Healthy, and Nutritious Meals That Are Rich in Vegetables and Protein
After getting yourself checked out by your local doctor the next most important thing you are ever going to do is make sure that you begin to eat really healthy meals. This means that every meal you make should contain a good portion of vegetables and also a good portion of protein.
You might be surprised to hear that protein is the most satisfying of all the macronutrients out there… even more than fats and carbohydrates. But the other benefit of protein is that it will help to maintain that muscle mass which is very important to keeping that metabolism revved up!
But as with anything out there, not all protein sources have been created equal. The best out there is Whey protein and the one that I’d recommend simply because it contains a lot more branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) which are very, very good for your muscles. On top of that this protein is a lot more satisfying to your hunger than the others that are out there.
3. Begin To Eat Foods High in Fiber and Avoid Foods Filled With Sugar
If you’re absolutely serious about losing that excess weight then you’ll want to do whatever you can to avoid eating sugary foods because they will completely destroy your chance of losing weight! On top of that they are just bad for your overall health, which is never good!
Instead of consuming junk foods you should instead focus your time and effort on eating foods that are high in fiber. The reason for this is because not only are they far more satisfying but they will also help to prevent any sort of constipation to come about as a result of your hypothyroidism.
4. Exercise As Often As Possible
Even if you’re the busiest person in the world you don’t have any excuse because you can still dedicate 10 minutes a day to doing some form of exercise. You literally only need 10 minutes a day, every single day to help boost up your metabolism. Do so consistently and you will begin to shed those excess pounds in no time at all.
Not only are you going to start to see the benefit of shedding weight from completing your fitness routine but you will also notice that your muscle mass will begin to increase slowly but surely. And as a lot of you already know the more muscle mass you have on your person the higher your base metabolic rate will be.
And of course the higher your metabolism is the more calories you are going to be burning over time. On top of that you are going to start to look really amazing too, so much so that you will begin to notice that people will start to compliment you on how great you look.
So you see, while it may be a little harder for you to lose weight when you have hypothyroidism… it isn’t at all impossible and if you just stick with the process and put in the hard work every single day!
