Having a healthy thyroid is very important for the overall wellbeing of your body and mind. But sometimes, what we eat can stand in the way of our health.

And this can be said about our thyroids as well.

Luckily, there are some things that we can do to change all that.

Avoid These Foods for A Healthy Thyroid

Talk with your doctor first before you decide to make any diet changes. Depending on your health state and your specific thyroid condition, this diet might not be suitable for you.

Once your doctor gives you the green light, try to get rid of the following:

Processed Foods

Despite how delicious they might be, cutting down on highly processed foods is a must. Not only do they contain a lot of calories, but they are also filled with a lot of sugar, salt, and chemicals that disrupt the normal functioning of your thyroid gland.

Therefore, make sure you cut out of your diet foods like: hot dogs, cakes, cookies, etc.

Foods Rich in Goitrogens

Studies have shown that foods containing goitrogens might disturb the normal functioning of the thyroid gland.

So, when you consume a lot of foods containing these compounds, you are more likely to suffer from a thyroid condition.

Here are the foods you should watch out for:

  • Soy foods like Tofu, tempeh, edamame, etc.
  • Vegetables like Cabbage, broccoli, kale, cauliflower, spinach, etc.
  • Fruits and starchy plants: Sweet potatoes, cassava, peaches, strawberries, etc.
  • Nuts and seeds: Millet, pine nuts, peanuts, etc.

If you eat some of these foods in excess, try to eat less over time and see if you notice any difference in your condition.
