Ideal Protein and Thyroid

Dieters in a hypo-thyroid state can benefit from a diet higher in balanced protein, such as Ideal Protein.

While on the protocol, you can expect to:

  • Lose weight more readily and give your metabolism a boost
  • Decrease the amount of processed, starchy carbohydrates in your diet
  • Rebalance hormones
  • Regulate blood sugar
  • Prevent sugar crashes and fatigue

Your Thyroid & Ideal Protein:

Carbohydrates and thyroid function are intimately connected. A ketogenic diet low in carbs may not work for everyone long-term, but studies show that a short-term ketogenic protocol can be beneficial in losing weight. Lipid profiles improve and weight is lost mainly in the form of fat, which decreases the risk of weight regain.

To preserve thyroid functioning on a low-carbohydrate diet, it is important to consume enough calories from the right sources- proteins with just the right amount of fat. This will give your body enough fuel so that it can spare its glycogen.
