The Thyroid Body Type

Posted on Apr 13, 2012 in Health & Wellness

Your predominant characteristic is “weight gain all over”. You most likely have a stubborn or slowed metabolism and the type of fat you accumulate is a spongy, waste-like product.

In Stage One, you may have noticed some hair loss. You may start losing the outer part of your eye brows and get loose skin underneath your chin and arms. By stage 2, your nails become brittle, you will have some constipation and your feet feel cold; especially at night. Cravings start to kick in as a need for quick energy; since your body has lost its ability to absorb vitamins and nutrients from food. You will find yourself craving “quick energy sources” like breads, pasta, cereals, crackers, biscuits, pan cakes, muffins, Juices, and even alcohol. By Stage 3, The Thyroid Type experiences chronic fatigue and a feeling of depression. You may feel that you cannot handle any stress. You find yourself suffering from exhaustion despite how many hours of sleep you get.


Toxins are the initial trigger for the Thyroid Body Type. The difference with the Thyroid Body Type is that these toxins triggered an imbalance of the metabolism. The worst foods for the Thyroid Body Type are sugared carbohydrates, because they work to add further waste material that your body converts to fatty tissue.


The Thyroid Type begins with a complete detoxification, because in order to lose weight, you must remove the toxins that are blocking your body’s natural fat burning.
