Episode - Can people with thyroid conditions eat eggs?


Can people with thyroid conditions eat eggs?

Eggs are a great source of nutrients. Despite that, they are not part of an autoimmune paleo diet. Some sources even recommend that people with autoimmune thyroid conditions such as Graves’ Disease and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis avoid eggs entirely.

While there are some situations where you might want to avoid eggs, I disagree that all people with thyroid conditions must avoid them.

Today I’m sharing the benefits of eggs, why they are problematic for some people, and the factors you should consider when deciding whether to include eggs in your diet.


During this episode, you’ll learn about:

  • Why eggs are not included in an autoimmune protocol (AIP) diet
  • The problem with lysozyme
  • Food sensitivity testing
  • How to reintroduce eggs to your diet


As always, I hope you found this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
