9780007211838: The Thyroid Diet: Manage Your Metabolism for Lasting Weight Loss

Do you have, or suspect you have thyroid problems? If you are still overweight even though you've tried diet after diet, and you feel tired and sluggish all the time, then this book could be your saviour. This international bestseller is a mine of information for both hypothyroid and hyperthyroid sufferers. If you have discovered, or suspect, that a low-functioning thyroid gland is causing you to pack on the pounds then this internationally bestselling book will be a godsend. It explains that even with medication from your doctor you are still likely to pile on the pounds. To elevate this Mary Shomon has helpfully outlined a number of approaches to help as she recognises that there simply isn't a one-cap-fits-all programme. For example some sufferers are carbohydrate sensitive, others find they actually gain weight on an Atkins-type diet, or they might find they only lose weight if they lower their calorie levels. The book is also packed with other information: when to eat; thyroid-damaging foods to avoid; metabolism-supporting herbs and supplements; and information on prescription weight-loss drugs. Her case histories make this a friendly and illuminating read too.

From the Author:

As a child I was chubby, but at puberty, slimmed out into a perfect size 8. I went through my 20s as a slender woman of 5'6", eating whatever I wanted (but eating quite poorly), and never even thinking about exercise. When I developed autoimmune hypothyroidism, it was a shock to my metabolism, which had already slowly started to add pounds, along with troublesome thyroid symptoms. Months after I began thyroid hormone replacement, I was still struggling with weight gain that seemed impossible to stop, and on my wedding day, I walked down the aisle in a size 16 dress, despite frantic dieting and exercise. Trying to lose the weight was impossible. I even gained weight on 800 calories a day. It was only when I really delved into the issues of insulin resistance and the thyroid's effects on metabolism that I began to understand why it was so hard to lose weight, and how I might achieve this elusive goal. That's why I wrote The Thyroid Diet...to share the results of! years of my own struggle and research to find out why, despite what doctors say, having an underactive thyroid can cause substantial and stubborn weight gain, and the specific ways you can lose it. Interestingly, as many as 10 million people have undiagnosed thyroid problems, and can't lose weight. The book is for them too, helping them identify the symptoms and risk factors, and outlining how they can get properly diagnosed and treated.

From the Inside Flap:

More than 20 million Americans have thyroid disease. Surprisingly, as many as 10 million of these sufferers don’t yet know they have a thyroid condition. They struggle to lose weight, doomed to fail because of the metabolic slowdown of a malfunctioning and untreated thyroid problem. Diagnosis and treatment may be the key to successful weight loss for many of these people. Even those who have been diagnosed with a thyroid problem find themselves packing on the pounds -- or unable to lose weight – after treatment. For these millions, until now, there have been few answers.

THE THYROID DIET: Manage Your Metabolism for Lasting Weight Loss by Mary Shomon is the first book to tackle the weight factors specific to thyroid conditions and detail a practical plan for lasting weight loss. Covering the issues including getting that all-important diagnosis, raising metabolism, resolving nutritional deficiencies, treating and rebalancing brain chemistry, THE THYROID DIET provides the in depth information needed by anyone whose weight struggles stem from thyroid disease.

Guidelines in THE THYROID DIET will help many previously unsuccessful dieters get diagnosed and treated – and proper thyroid treatment may be all that’s needed to successfully lose weight. For those thyroid patients still struggling to lose weight, THE THYROID DIET identifies the many frustrating impediments to weight loss, and offers solutions -- both conventional and alternative alternative -- to help.

THE THYROID DIET optimal dietary changes, including how a thyroid sufferer should focus on a low-glycemic, high-fiber, lower-calorie diet, optimal timing of meals for maximum hormonal impact, thyroid-damaging foods to avoid, helpful herbs and supplements, prescription weight loss drugs, and more. It contains several different eating plans, food lists, and a set of delicious and healthy gourmet recipes. With handy worksheets to use in weight loss tracking, and a special resource section featuring websites, books, and support groups, THE THYROID DIET offers vital help for the millions dealing with thyroid-related weight problems.

Diagnosed with thyroid disease in 1995, Mary J. Shomon transformed her health challenges into a mission as a nationally-known patient advocate. THE THYROID DIET reflects her personal and medical understanding of the diagnosis, treatment and weight challenges faced by thyroid patients, and offers a roadmap to a happier and healthier life through proper nutrition, lifestyle and education.
