Have you ever made a big mistake?
Of course… everyone has.
Unlike most others, I encourage people to make mistakes.
Because we learn and grow by the mistakes we make.
Just like Thomas Edison, who failed a thousand times before creating a working light bulb.
If it wasn’t for those first thousand mistakes, he never would have learned what works and what doesn’t.
Now, I don’t want you to make a thousand mistakes to find what works and what doesn’t.
And, I certainly don’t want you to make the same mistake over and over again.
That is why having a mentor to help you along the way is so important.
Well, there’s one big diet mistake that is growing worse with every passing year.
I want to show you how NOT to make the same mistake that so many others are by using a simple thyroid diet fix.
It’s something I teach my clients, which I often refer to as the Nutrient-Activation Principle.
The Nutrient-Activation Principle
The Nutrient-Activation Principle isn’t a difficult concept to understand, but let me explain it as I often do to my clients.
Like most people who own a car, I’m sure you want to keep your car alive and running for as long as possible.
To do that you need to keep your engine working efficiently to prevent the wear and tear that kills your engine.
Your engine requires things like oil, transmission fluid, and radiator fluid to run efficiently.
Think of these engine fluids as “nutrients” for your engine.
Now, your car can’t run off these nutrients alone.
You still need gasoline to produce the energy that your engine needs for you to drive.
Think of gasoline as the “metabolic activator” required for your car to produce energy and run.
Now, here’s the important part to understand…
If you changed your engine fluids regularly, but never refilled your gas tank… how long is your car going to run?
Once you run out of gas, it doesn’t matter how many engine nutrients you put in your car.
You’re not going anywhere.
On the flip side, if you continuously re-fill your gas tank, but you neglect your engine fluids… how long is your car going to run?
Eventually your engine runs out of fluids and your car dies.
As you can see, your car requires both engine fluids (nutrients) and gasoline (metabolic activator) to keep your car alive and running.
The same applies to your thyroid and diet.
The Nutrient-Activator Principle means that healthy thyroid metabolism requires both:
- Adequate nutrients to keep your cells working efficiently.
- Metabolic activators to activate your cells to use those nutrients and produce energy.
Just like with your car engine…
If you eat tons of nutrients, but no metabolic activators, then:
- You can’t make use of all those nutrients.
- You can’t produce the energy you need to sustain your health.
Eventually your metabolism fails along with your thyroid function.
And on the flip side, if you eat tons of metabolic activators, but lack nutrients, then:
- You deplete yourself of nutrients.
- Your cells can’t function, leading to premature cell death.
Again, your metabolism fails along with your thyroid function.
Yes, you need both nutrients and the metabolic activators to use those nutrients and sustain healthy thyroid function.

Now, let’s look at what most are doing wrong, and how to fix it.
The Big Thyroid Diet Mistake Most Are Making
Over the years, I’ve found that many of my clients fall into one of two categories:
Category 1: High Nutrient – Low Metabolic Activators
These clients are generally very health conscious. They prepare their foods.
They believe they’re eating the healthiest diet possible. They often over-eat vegetables that many falsely think to be super-nutritious.
Yet, they’re scared of metabolic activators such as most carbohydrates, healthy sugars, and coffee. They often label these necessary metabolic activators as unhealthy or “nutrient void”.
I also find that many of the “healthy” foods they eat are actually unhealthy and known to suppress thyroid function.
They think that nutrients are everything.
Category 2: Low Nutrient – High Metabolic Activators
These clients are generally on the other end of the spectrum.
They may still eat plenty of vegetables, but they aren’t getting the right amounts or the right kinds of nutrients. And they’re not getting them at the right times.
Instead, they focus predominantly on metabolic activating foods together with thyroid-suppressive polyunsaturated fats.
Many spent years eating anything they wanted, but now they’re developing health issues at a rapid pace.
Needless to say, you don’t want to fall into either category.
If you do, then you’re making a big mistake.
But it’s not something we can’t fix.
The Big Thyroid Diet Fix
After explaining the Nutrient-Activation Principle to my clients, they begin to understand. It’s not healthy to fall into either of the two categories mentioned above.
Instead, you want to fall into a new category.
Category 3: High Nutrient – High Metabolic Activators
This thyroid diet fix works by combining high nutrients and high metabolic activators into your diet.
This could mean combining the high nutrients found in egg yolks with the metabolic activators found in fruit.
It could also mean combining the high nutrients found in shellfish with the metabolic activators found in coffee.
This is actually why and how we use coffee with our clients and why we developed our own special thyroid-boosting coffee.
By combining healthy high-nutrient foods with foods that activate your metabolism, we can force your cells to use those nutrients.
Remember, neither one works on its own.
You need both working together to have a truly healthy thyroid diet.
