Hello.welcome.First and foremost is the control of your hypothyroidism.Everybody knows about regular exercises and diet control but still it becomes difficult to shed weight.Best would be to consult a dietician and reduce your weight properly under her watchful eyes.Good luck.

hi ,
welcome to hcm
thanks for the query
first try to make the thyroid profile normal. take medications for that after consulting your doctor.
don't have tea/ coffee first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Instead start the day with fruits/ dry fruits/ milk
Eat every two hours. it will increase your metabolism
Eat more when more active, less when less active.
Eat 2 hours prior to bedtime.if possible take veg soup in night
Eat full fat version instead of low fat substitute.
Get consistent with working out. 45 min every alternate day is more than enough.
add yoga to daily regimen. pranayam is very helpful
avoid red meat. take a lot of green leafy vegetable
Eat healthy, wholesome and fresh food made in home. Avoid packaged foods.
Say no to juices. Eat the whole fruit instead.
drink alot of water. be happy all time. avoid stress. take good sleep
take care
