Many people envy the thyroid body type for their active thyroids and fast metabolisms, which allow them to eat whatever they want without weight gain. Their overindulgence, warns Abravenal, catches up to them when they reach their 20s and 30s. An addiction to candy, starches, soda and coffee is their downfall. Thyroid body types suffer from thyroid over stimulation, which leads to a cycle of exhaustion and imbalance. Controlling sweet cravings at an early age may prevent future weight gain.
Thyroid body types have a seemingly high energy and endurance level, but they do experience fatigue. Instead of resting, the thyroid body type uses sweets or caffeine for quick energy bursts. Recognizing fatigue is the first step to controlling weight. Instead of running downstairs for a candy bar or an energy drink when you want to extend your two hour workout, go home and take a nap or get a massage. Abravenal believes that thyroid body types tend to emphasize aerobic exercise, but do not perform adequate resistance training exercise. He suggests three weekly weight training workouts. The added muscle will rev up your metabolic rate and assist with weight loss.
Dr. Abravanel advises his thyroid body type patients to cut down on what he calls “thyroid stimulating foods,” such as sugar, white flour and white rice. He recommends eating eggs every day, as well as vegetables, chicken, fish and moderate portions of red meat. In the beginning of the diet, he tells his patients to eliminate fruit, since it contains too much thyroid stimulating sugar. Limit carbohydrate intake to whole grains, and completely eliminate caffeine.
The Thyroid Type begins with a complete detoxification, because in order to lose weight, you must remove the toxins that are blocking your body’s natural fat burning.
