I was diagnosed in August with Autoimmune Thyroiditis (Hashimotoe’s Disease). Im’ve been on steroids since being diagnosed in order to bring down my antibody level. I have gained weight steadily since then! I will have to remain on the steroids until at least the end of December. My question is: Will being on the Mediterrean diet help me with weight lose even though I am on steroids and my thyroid is not metabolizing as it should? /…. I have to do something!
Fresh, healthy food. The staples of the Mediterranean diet include fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds, legumes, seafood, yogurt, olive oil, and small amounts of wine, Adamson tells WebMD. Food should be eaten in season and locally grown, and Mediterrean dieters avoid processed food.
