Nutrient dense foods: Eat foods that are nutrient dense (like meat, fish, poultry, eggs, cheese, low starch vegatables and water) avoid foods that are not nutrient dense (like starches and sugars, including fruit) nutrient dense foods will increase your basal metabolic rate. On the other hand, starches and sugars impair thyroid metabolism via affects on your liver (which helps activate thyroid hormone).

Healthy snacks: There are many choices but top on the list are fruits and vegetables. There are many low calorie power bars and nuts are also a good snack.

Fruit snacks: Fruit snacks are probably a good idea. They are a quick pick-me-up and if you stick with the all fruit ones, healthy as well.
