The 2 biggest struggles with Hashimoto’s are fatigue and difficulty losing weight. The number one question I get from the ladies with Hashimoto’s is what I should eat to lose weight with Hashimoto’s. Today I’ll share my top five strategies to lose stubborn weight regarding how and when to eat. I don’t recommend fad diets, quick fixes, simply smart strategies to implement especially when you are super fatigued and brain foggy from your Hashimoto’s.
Here’s my top 5 recommendations:
- A caloric restriction is required
- Prioritize your protein intake.
- Cut out snacking and mindless eating.
- Check for Dehydration
- Check Gut health-Parasites, candida, SIBO, Hy Pylori
“The body will eat and eat and eat until it hits its protein requirements.”
“If you’re already stressed in other areas of your life, like you’re not sleeping well, you have sleep apnea, you have diabetes, that’s uncontrolled. You’re not working out, you’re not walking, you’re not resistance training. A caloric restriction might add an extra stressor.”
“I used to be a big grazer and kind of eat all day long, and I think part of it was because I wasn’t hitting my protein, I just continued to eat some carbs and fat until my body did feel satiated by hitting that protein. But I was grazing all day. I was never giving my digestion a break.”

What gets measured gets managed, I love Cronometer to track my protein intake.
