A Missing Link To Weight Gain & Hypothyroidism

While there can be may factors that can be uncovered during a 90 minute Holistic Health Consultation, a blood, hair &/or poop analysis will show the proof of missing enzymes and nutrients from your body. One mineral that can be an easy fix to reverse the effects of hypothyroidism is iodine. Getting enough iodine is crucial for healthy thyroid function, which controls your metabolism.

In adults, insufficient iodine intake can lead to hypothyroidism.

This can cause symptoms such as:(41).

  • low energy levels
  • dry skin
  • tingling in hands and feet
  • forgetfulness
  • depression
  • weight gain

Vegans are considered at risk of iodine deficiency, and studies report that vegans have up to 50% lower blood iodine levels than vegetarians (4243).

The RDA for adults is 150 mcg of iodine per day. Pregnant women should aim for 220 mcg per day, and those breastfeeding are recommended to further increase their daily intake to 290 mcg per day (44).

Iodine levels in plant foods depend on the iodine content of the soil. For instance, food grown close to the ocean tends to be higher in iodine.

The only foods considered to have consistently high iodine levels include iodized salt, seafood, seaweed and dairy products, which pick up iodine from solutions used to clean cows and farm equipment.

Half a teaspoon (2.5 ml) of iodized salt is sufficient to meet your daily needs.

Vegans who do not want to consume iodized salt or fail to eat seaweed several times per week should consider taking an iodine supplement.

I don’t believe in diets or deprivation, and I think exercise should be pleasurable, not a punishment. In my weight-loss world, you can have your cake and eat it too…and still lose the weight. From desolate, defeated & done to a dedicated life living my destiny helping others feel, look and be the best they can! Hi, Iam Becca, shortly after I awakened, I started BeccaTebonFIT because I realized others felt the same as me and let their adversities and "nouns" (people, places and things) hold them back. Life's immense changes have changed me and my life! My once sickened body is strong and my mind feels sexy. I've committed to helping others with their health, weight loss and feeling better about who they are and decode their gaps so they can see clearly what is missing and how to get it. Iam not done growing— I intentionally evolved and becoming a better person, mom, friend, coach, speaker, God's girl. Every day. I have been in wellness since birth — as a patient. And now, Iam a certified holistic health coach and started my professional fitness career at 19. My expert support includes: Mindset/Self Love, Body, Nutrition, Energy, Green Living and Food/Recipes, that guide you with proven tactics and science-based research to live a lifestyle of health, a life filled with happiness — on purpose and with intention and gratification.
