We had originally shared this post in December, but since we have gotten A TON more questions about this, we decided to re-share this post! We also wanted to share this article we read that really explains why we eat the way we do, and maybe it will be helpful to y’all!
This article shares 8 foods to avoid if you have a thyroid condition, like us. We follow most of these! It does a better job (than we would) of explaining why you should avoid these foods.
We wanted to open up about something that got us into eating healthy and working out so consistently! Many of y’all probably didn’t know this, but we used to be personal trainers a couple of years ago before we started this blog. As much as we love fashion and putting outfits together, we are also super passionate about healthy eating and working out. We both suffer from an autoimmune condition called Hypothyroidism.
It all started during our junior year of college. We started feeling extremely tired, sluggish, and bloated all of the time (yes, those are symptoms that you could have any day really, but ours were almost constant). This went on for another full-year. Finally, our senior year of college (about 4 years ago), we had had enough. We felt absolutely TERRIBLE. We knew something had to be wrong with us, and that we weren’t just imagining it.
