Episode#3 – Calorie-sensitive Thyroid Diet Plan for Weight Loss
For those who are calorie-sensitive and want few ideas on what type of foods they should be taking, here are few suggestions:
For some people no matter what they do, they never lose weight until they cut the calories.
It is important that you need to maintain a good journal and track all the calories you are taking. BE METHODICAL ABOUT THIS.
You goal should be to stay within your calorie target goal.
1. Low-glycemic vegetables – 20%
2. Low-glycemic fruits and starches – 15%
3. Good Fat – 30%
4. Lean Protein – 35%
5. Water – drink at least 64 ounces every day
6. Supplements – Vitamin D, Omega 3, Thyroid Herbs rich supplement
How do I decide my calorie need now?
It depends on your lifestyle i.e. sedentary, moderately active or highly active
1. Sedentary lifestyle – multiply your target weight by 10
Example – target weight 140 pounds, your calorie needs will be 140 x 10 = 1400 calorie a day
2. Moderately acive lifestyle – multiply your target weight by 12
For the same above example, it will be 140 x 12 = 1680 calories
3. Highly active lifestyle – multiply your target weight x 14
For the same above example, it will be 140 x 14 = 1960 calories
Use the above formula as a thumb-rule for guidance purpose only.
In the next episode, I will talk about a variety of lean proteins!
