Chia seeds, grapefruit, cinnamon, coconut oil and green tea have been considered as good options for weight loss in thyroid. As thyroid patients tend to suffer with sluggish digestion and digestive disorders like constipation, fibrous foods will also help them greatly in shedding calories. By contrast, you should avoid vegetables like cabbage, kale, Brussels sprouts, bok choi, cauliflower and turnips as their digestion can impede thyroid's ability of iodine utilization, that plays a critical role in normal thyroid functioning.
