Hi, I am looking for a good, balanced thyroid diet. Simple dishes and recipes which are easy to make and follow for a long term. thanks!
) In hypothyroidism, the BMR is low, so the calories should be reduced to 30-40% of the normal requirements. Fat should consist mainly from vegetable oil. It should not exceed more than 30g per day. Sodium chloride as common salt should be kept at the minimum and avoid salted confectioneries, chips, pickles. The protein should be adequate to meet normal requirement. Vegetables and fruits should be consumed in abundance. Dairy, meat, eggs should be consumed for their protein, zinc and selenium content. Lentils and pulses must be included.
