From Fatigued & Fat To Fantastic

Hypothyroidism

is a condition in which your thyroid gland fails to produce enough thyroid hormone, and is also referred to as an underactive thyroid. Your thyroid gland is part of your endocrine system, and is located in the front of your neck, slightly above where both of your collarbones meet.

Your thyroid gland produces special hormones that are responsible for controlling how every single cell in your body uses energy. This is called metabolism. While hypothyroidism is more common in women over the age of 50, it can occur in people of all ages, and in men. Although hypothyroidism can make you feel sick and tired, you don't have to live this way anymore. This ultimate guide will show you exactly what to do in order to regain your health, skyrocket your energy level, lose weight, boost your metabolism and even improve your mood.

While your physician will monitor your overall health and thyroid function to determine if your medications are working, he or she may not tell you, or may not even be aware of some highly effective, clinically proven strategies, foods, and tips that can skyrocket your metabolism, speed weight loss, give you vibrant health and turbocharge your engery.

Symptoms of hypothyroidism include constipation, sensitivity to cold temperatures, heavy or irregular menstrual periods, fatigue, muscle or joint pain, and dry skin. In addition, hypothyroidism can cause thin hair, brittle fingernails, feelings of weakness, depression, weight gain, and the inability to lose weight.

Later symptoms of hypothyroidism may include hoarseness, puffiness of the face, hands and feet, diminished sense of taste and smell, thinning eyebrows, thickening of your skin and slowed speech.

One of the most common complaints of hypothyroidism, however, is the inability to lose weight. Because hypothyroidism causes your metabolism to slow down, weight loss remains sluggish, despite your best efforts at dieting and exercise.

This book was written to help you make the most out of little-known tips, tricks and recipes that will help skyrocket your metabolism so that you burn fat and calories, and lose weight fast.

You don't have to accept the fact that simply because you've been diagnosed with hypothyroidism, you're destined to be overweight. By following the little-known secrets, strategies and recipes in this book, you'll be amazed at how fast the weight comes off, how much more energized you feel, and how brighter your mood is!

Superfoods To Help Improve Symptoms Of Hypothyroidism And Promote Weight Loss

Superfoods are a unique group of foods that grow in nature. They are also loaded with nutrients, and very low in calories. They can also help enhance endocrine function and promote thyroid health.

Superfoods are excellent sources of illness-fighting anti-oxidants and immune-boosting essential nutrients. Furthermore, certain superfoods even act like medications, and can help stave off and treat various illnesses.

Select superfoods can also help you lose weight, lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels, while reducing inflammation and pain. They may also protect against heart disease and cancer, regulate your metabolism, relieve stress, anxiety and depression, promote optimal digestive health and help with weight loss.

Although eating superfoods may substantially improve the quality of your life, it is important that you discuss your medical concerns with your health care provider prior to self-treating your health conditions by eating superfoods or any other remedies. Take action now and add superfoods into your daily meal plans to enjoy vibrant health and a more positive outlook on life!

Almonds

Almonds are rich sources of amino acids and protein which help in the production of certain chemicals responsible for muscle growth. Since they are excellent sources of protein, they help boost your metabolism, while peeling off the pounds. Almonds also help lower bad cholesterol and may even help regulate blood glucose levels, which is beneficial to diabetics. The plant sterols in almonds also provide energy, and the vitamin E helps protect against damage from the sun.

Almonds are also excellent sources of antioxidants, which helps prevent damage from free radicals. They also help keep your arteries healthy and may help improve cognitive functioning.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes are important superfoods because they are loaded with lycopene, a potent antioxident that may enhance your weight loss efforts. Whether you consume your tomatoes fresh or processed, the benefits remain strong. me. Diets high in lycopene may help decrease your risk of certain cancers, such as prostate, lung, bladder, stomach and skin cancers. Lycopene may also help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and help reduce the risk of skin damaged caused by ultraviolet rays. Although fresh tomatoes are great to eat, consuming tomato paste or cooked tomatoes may help your body absorb the lycopene more efficiently.

Flaxseeds

Flaxseeds are one of the "superstars" of weight loss superfoods, as they are high in fiber and protein, and are rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids help improve the quality and texture of your skin, while helping to lower total cholesterol levels. Flaxseeds may also help relieve symptoms of fibrocystic breast disease, while improving overall cardiovascular health.

The omega-3 fatty acids in flaxseeds also have been shown to reduce levels and anxiety and promote a more restful and restorative sleep. For those who are unable to tolerate the side effects from cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins, supplement their diets with flaxseeds may be a viable alternative to taking these drugs. It is important to note, however, that you should never stop taking medications that your doctor has prescribed for you, without first discussing it with him.

Spinach

Spinach is another great superfood that is not only a potent muscle enhancer, it is also rich in magnesium and potassium These vital minerals play important roles in heart health, weight loss and blood pressure, and may help ward off a stroke. Spinach also contains an excellent source of lutein, which is an antioxidant helpful in keeping clogged arteries at bay. Spinach also helps bolster your bone density, while helping to fight colon cancer, skin cancer and prostate cancer.

Sweet Potatoes

Talk about one of the most amazing superfoods! Sweet potatoes just might be one of the healthiest foods around to help you quick start your weight loss. Those who make sweet potatoes a regular staple in their diet may be helping to reduce the risk of diabetes, while helping to counteract the harmful effects of secondhand smoke.

Sweet potatoes contain glutathione, a strong antioxidant known for its ability to support the immune system. It might also help protect against liver disease, Parkinson's, Alzheimers, heart attacks, cancer, stroke and HIV. Furthermore, this spectacular superfood is packed with vitamin C, which helps smooth out the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

Rosemary

Rosemary is a spectacular superfood that contains carnosic acid. It may also help protect against stroke by shielding cells from the harmful effects of free radicals. Carnosic acid may also protect against Alzheimer's disease, enhance your weight loss efforts and other degenerative conditions.

Salmon

One of the most important superfoods is salmon. It contains docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) as well as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). The substances are known as omega-3 fatty acids, which help enhance nerve function and combat inflammation and promote healthy weight loss. Omega-3 fatty acids may also play important roles in the prevention of depression and anxiety disorders. Furthermore, it may also reduce the risk of breast cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Omega-3 fatty acids are also available in supplement form, however, you should talk to your doctor before taking them. These supplements have the potential to decrease platelet aggregation and subsequent thinning of the blood. If you take prescription blood thinners or take a daily aspirin, omega-3 fatty acid supplements may intensify the anticoagulant effects of these medications and raise the risk of abnormal bleeding.

Apples

Another star in the superfoods category is the apple. Not only can an apple a day keep the doctor away, it can also stave off weight gain. Individuals who eat an apple before eating a meal high in carbohydrates tend to eat fewer calories that people who choose a different snack. In addition, apples contain powerful antioxidants that help reduce the risk of getting metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is marked by an increase in belly fat and being shaped like an apple, as opposed to having the shape of a pear.

Steak

Did you know that steak is also a member of the superfood group? Beef is protein that when consumed in moderation, helps manage your weight while promoting quick weight loss. It is important to note, however, that you should choose lean cuts of meat and trim off any visible fat. People who are anemic can also benefit from adding steak to their diets, as steak is rich in iron content, which may help correct iron deficiency anemia.

Superfoods To Relieve Stress And Anxiety

Stress and anxiety have ways of creeping into almost every part of our lives. Whether you are raising your family, working long hours, dealing with family or health-related issues, stress and anxiety take their toll on your emotional and physical health. Hypothyroidism can also lead to stress, depression and anxiety, and so can the medications used to treat it.

Although elevated levels of stress, anxiety and depression might necessitate a medical evaluation, there are various things you can do to help east your anxiety before it spirals out of control. The foods that you eat play a vital role in both the development and management of anxiety, and by learning which types foods to eat and which ones to avoid, you might find that your stress and anxiety levels start to dissipate.

Before I explain which foods will help you manage your stress and anxiety, you should know which foods to avoid. Alcohol is known a central nervous system depressant, so when you drink in excess, you can actually deplete your body of energy, leaving you with hardly any resources to effectively manage your stress.

Conversely, caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant, and in addition to contributing to the loss of fluids, it can cause palpitations and abnormal heart rhythms, respiratory difficulties, increased urination, upset stomach, headache and excessive sweating. These symptoms can further exacerbate your symptoms of anxiety, and in certain cases, increase the risk for a full-fledged panic attack.

Eating foods high in sugar content can also worsen anxiety because after you eat sugar, your blood sugar levels will increase, and then decline quickly. This physiological action may also cause decreased levels of energy, depression and anxiety.

Now, for the foods you should eat that can dramatically help restore your energy, improve your emotional well-being, keep anxiety at bay and relieve depression. Even though many individuals are trying to eliminate the amounts of red meat that they add into their diets, red meat is actually an excellent choice for those who are dealing with stress.

Beef contains rich amounts of B vitamins, zinc and iron, which not only help raise your mood, but it also helps maintain your emotional well-being as well. Make sure, however, that you eat cuts of beef that are very lean, and low in fat.

The mineral, magnesium, is often referred to as "nature's beta blocker." Beta blockers are prescription drugs are used in the management of hypertension, abnormal heart rates and rhythms, migraines and anxiety. They also help suppress your body's response to stress hormones such as adrenaline, and can dramatically lower your risk of panic attacks.

It is for this reason that you should eat foods that are rich sources of magnesium. Almonds are excellent sources of magnesium, and other nutrients. In addition to containing high amounts of magnesium, almonds also contain vitamins C, E and B2, and healthy unsaturated fats. These substances also help protect you from the dangerous effects of free radicals and oxidative stress, which have been commonly implicated in the development of heart disease and malignancy.

Milk is another food to help you get through times of anxiety and stress. Milk is rich in calcium, vitamins B12 and B2, antioxidant, vitamin D and protein. It also helps keep your bones healthy and helps enhance the regeneration of healthy new cells.

Combining low-fat milk with your favorite whole-grain, healthy cereal for breakfast is an excellent way to keep stress at bay that may be waiting to ruin your emotional and physical health. Cottage cheese, combined with vitamin C rich fruits also helps you better deal with stress-promoting free radicals that can often get out of control when you are under stress. In addition to fortified milk, asparagus is another heavy hitter when it comes to managing anxiety and stress.

Rich in folic acid and vitamin B, asparagus helps stabilize your moods by promoting the release of a "feel-good" substance, known as serotonin. Antidepressant medications also work by increasing your levels of serotonin to elevate your moods and keep anxiety and depression at bay.

Superfoods That Defy Aging

Goji berries are dense and contain rich concentrations of vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, amino acids and healthy essential fatty acids. Because of excellent nutritional value, it is not surprising that Goji berries are frequently mentioned when referring to good health and anti-aging. Goji berries originate in Tibet, and are known to improve immunity, promote good vision, lower the risk of cancer, reduce levels of cholesterol, assist with weight loss and reduce depression. In addition, Goji berries are rich sources of vitamin C content, and contain at least 500 times more vitamin C than oranges so.

They also contain higher levels of beta carotene than carrots, and they're also an excellent source of vitamin A. The polysaccharides in Goji berries help stimulate your pituitary gland to secrete human growth hormone, which is thought to help stave off aging.

Avocados contain vitamin E, which is an excellent moisturizer and emollient for your skin. Avocados also contain glutathione, which is a powerful antioxidant.
