“The mere concentration of glucose and sodium in the blood (and of thyroid, and many other substances that aren’t considered to be part of the immune system) can make a tremendous difference in the degree of “immunological” reaction.” Other wise known as proper blood sugar regulation.
What this means…
If you are; calorie counting, not eating frequently enough, not eating the proper food ratios or serving sizes of each (protein, carb, fat) or eating low quality foods, you’re setting yourself up for a food sensitivity and eventually develop the potential to slow your metabolism over time.
Not regulating your blood sugar properly can also lead to elevated levels of inflammation and a slower rate of healing, regeneration and repair in the body. So if you are increasing your exercise load or any stress for that matter it’s essential to increase your calorie intake.
When increasing your frequency of eating I recommend always increasing your calorie intake with organic whole foods that support the thyroid.
