The Biggest Pitfall To The Hypothyroid Diet Or Any Diet
The hypothyroid diet is unlike any other diet. It has some very unique concepts specific to hypothyroidism. The diet program is different, but more importantly, so are the needs of the individuals who follow it.
I have an acronym for the word diet, which is — Deliberately, Identified, as an Eating, Trend. Diets are eating trends, plain and simple. In fact, if you listen carefully to someone who’s dieting they will tell you they are ‘going on’ a diet. If you ‘go on’ a diet, you usually ‘go off’ it at some point. Hence, eating trend.
Your results using the hypothyroid diet will be the same as the results you’ve experienced with all diets if your approach is the same.
If you have hypothyroidism you’re not going to make a miraculous recovery overnight. This is something you will have to live with for a while. I’m not suggesting you can’t cure yourself, but no diet will help you long-term if you ‘go on’ it. You can’t assume you’re going to follow this plan for 30 days and be done with it. That’s not how it works. Your approach and mindset must be different.
Your mindset should be similar to this…”I need to make some permanent changes in my life if I’m going to overcome this thing that has disrupted my life.”
I’m sure you’ve heard this before, ’diets need to be a lifestyle change’. Well, this even more important if you have hypothyroidism.
Sure you’ll have to make some sacrifices, but you’ll also learn some new and exciting ways to eat that will benefit your health. Think of it as an adventure; you’re opening up your body and mind to something that can be life changing, if you accept it as part of your lifestyle.
Diets are all about mindset. Those who start the process with the right mindset, win. Those who start a diet with the idea of losing a coupe of quick pounds – but hang on to their old mindset and habits will be disappointed.
If you’re going to make some changes in the way you eat and live, you must first make some changes to how you think.
You may have thought about the lifestyle changes you need to make, but have you thought about the mindset change that you will need for long-term success?
If you have hypothyroidism no diet alone will cure you. However, a lifestyle change along with the right mindset and the hypothyroid diet is a recipe for long-term success.
