When the thyroid gland is overloaded, it cannot secrete the proper amount of hormones to control the metabolic process. As a result, you lose energy, gain weight, dry your skin, and make your hair more dull.
Pay attention to protein intake at every meal, such as lean beef, chicken and fish. These foods can provide you with stable amounts of iron and amino acids, which are very important for the production of thyroid hormones. Not only that, eating more of these proteins can also help you avoid foods that may cause thyroid function to slow down. Do not eat more than two foods in a week: soy, peach, strawberry, peanut, and spinach.
Foods that contain too much acid in the diet, such as meat, dairy products, sweets or fruits, will provide a good growth environment for harmful bacteria and hinder liver and thyroid function. This reduces the ability of these organs to process fat. At the same time, toxins produced by acidic substances in the body can lead to clogged skin pores, unbalanced oils, and skin problems.
Adjust your diet to be 75% alkaline and 25% acidic. Alkaline foods you can choose from include asparagus, broccoli, bell peppers, carrots, cauliflower, cucumber, onion, pumpkin, radish, avocado, tofu, vegetable juice, garlic, and other condiments. After such a diet adjustment, you will find yourself not only less hungry, but also your skin will improve greatly.
The human liver controls more than 1,500 metabolic reactions that are critical to fat burning, energy production, and weight control. This key organ also breaks down fat-dissolving toxins and excretes them through the kidneys. Once the liver is overwhelmed, it will slow down the processing of these toxins, fail to help the body expel toxins in a timely manner, and may cause weight gain, poor energy, and yellow skin.
Eat more leafy vegetables on your diet, such as eating more food such as celery, cabbage and bean sprouts every day. These foods are rich in chlorophyll and can help speed up the repair of damaged liver cells. In addition, you should consume enough protein every day. Good sources of protein food include lean meat, beef, turkey, skinless chicken, and fish. Protein can not only increase the rate of metabolism, but also increase the production of enzymes in the liver, helping the liver to more effectively convert toxins into excretable water-soluble substances.
When estrogen and progesterone levels become chronically imbalanced, the functions of appetite-controlling hormones such as serotonin are also affected, leading to weight gain.
Studies have shown that calcium-rich diets can help women who are prone to hormonal imbalances lose weight. This is because calcium can help the body turn off genes that are too sensitive to hormonal changes. Eat calcium-rich foods daily, such as low- fat milk, cheese, and yogurt.
