Do you have Hashimoto’s?
Learn why choosing Keto for your nutrition plan is a perfect choice and learn why, in my course Keto for the week, is the way to go instead of being in a state of ketosis all the time.
Perhaps there are myths that you’ve heard about how being in ketosis or eating a low-carb diet for a long period of time can drop your thyroid hormone levels. This is a myth.
This bad reputation that Keto has is because some claim that doing a low carb diet or doing a keto diet will suppress T3.
This evidence is incorrect. When we look at the research, the majority of the studies of the effects of a low carb, high fat diet, which is keto, the studies have always used high use of PUFA’s.
It’s these polyunsaturated fatty acids which are incredibly bad for our health. They will cause insulin resistance. Insulin resistance and hypothyroidism go hand in hand.
So if you have a dysregulated thyroid, chances are you have insulin resistance.These high insulin levels will impair the T4 to T3 conversion.
Are you on a low-carb diet?
If you follow a really low carb diet, and you do the typical Keto, under 20 grams of total carbohydrates for an extended period of time, there have been some instances where there is a decrease in T3 thyroid hormone. Now, if you’re on thyroid medication and you’re optimized, then this is not a huge concern. These levels may show up as needing a little bit more medication. Maybe your free T3 goes below a 3.5 and we have to increase your dose, but typically that doesn’t happen as you naturally come out of ketosis anyway.

I have found that Keto for the week is a great place to start. This allows you to take a break on the weekends or special occasions but without going crazy, this will bring your body in and out of a state of ketosis.
So, why is keto for the week better than keto all the time?
This process will still keep you in a state of fat burning, improve your mental clarity, decrease all the different disease states and conditions, and it’s going to keep you in a low inflammatory state. Any muscle or joint pain will decrease and your thyroid and hormones will function at a more optimal level. Remember, we have to do everything in combination. Throughout this process, you’re going to see your hormones balance, and thyroid function improve.
