From patient advocate Mary Shomon, author of Living Well With Hypothyroidism, here is the first book to tackle the weight factors specific to thyroid patients and detail a conventional and alternative plan for lasting weight loss.
An estimated 10 million Americans have been diagnosed with thyroid disease most of them women and for the majority of them, losing weight is mentioned time and time again as a primary concern and chief frustration a challenge made more difficult due to the metabolic slowdown of a malfunctioning thyroid gland. For these thyroid patients, treatment alone doesn't seem to resolve weight problems. Further, they may struggle with raising basic metabolism, resolving underlying nutritional deficiencies, treating depression and correcting brain chemistry imbalances, reducing stress, and combating insulin resistance.
The Thyroid Diet will identify these factors that inhibit a thyroid patient's ability to lose weight, and offer solutions both conventional and alternative to help. It will discuss optimal dietary changes, including how a thyroid sufferer should focus on a low-glycemic, high-fibre, low-calorie diet, eaten as smaller, more frequent meals to balance blood sugar. The Thyroid Diet addresses the use of various herbs, nutritional supplements, and prescription weight loss drugs, outlining the necessity of exercise, and drawing together all information into an integrated diet and exercise plan. 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, here is vital help for the millions of thyroid patients dealing with weight problems.
Mary Shomon has been praised by doctors around the country for her medical knowledge and sensitivity to patients' needs. She will be receiving similar blurbs for this new book. There are no other books on controlling your weight problems if you have a thyroid condition, yet over 40% of overweight people have evidence of a thyroid condition, and the weight loss problems facing them are unique and need a specific approach."

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.Review:
'Mary Shomon provides a comprehensive service for sufferers of thyroid disease.' TIME
