Welcome to Healthcare Magic
How is your diet. You probably are having relatively more diet for your activity. You need to avoid fried food, junk food, oily food, fatty food, colas. Eat more fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Do daily brisk walking for 40 minutes. Get 6-8 hours of sleep a day. Get your thyroid hormones checked and if periods irregular then you may have hormonal disturbance. Consult your Doctor in such cases.

Get your thyroid profile done first. Have balanced diet and regular exercise and most important is to maintain your bowel clean. Trifla in such conditions is a good help. one tea spoon at bed time.

Welcome to HealthCare Magic,
Thanks for your query.
It seems to be the problem related with imbalanced diet rather than the problem of over eating.
Better you avoid all fatty foods,fried foods,sweets etc.
Kindly consult a Nutritionist to check your food type and advice for the balanced nutritional diet.
Get you T3T4TSH done.
Kapal Bhatee Pranayama is most preferable exercise for you.
Thank you.

Thanks for query,
Your weight is less and require to put on some weight.
Collection of fat in the abdomen indicates lack of physical exercise.
Do not go for more exercise which create more calorie imbalance causing still loss of weight.
Do abdominal recti muscle exercise,this will definitely reduce size of your belly.
Take more nourishing food containing more protein
Take multivitamin supplements and B.complex.
Ok and bye.

Hi well come to HCM.
since your food habit is not faulty, you are doing regular exercise as well, there id not
much to advise about it. You may add some absominal exercise retraction and lax of
abdominal muscles, straight leg raising etc may give you additional help. as far as wt is
considiered you are on little lower side so not much of food restriction can give you
further out of it. If you do not have any pathology in the body continuation of dietary
habit and exercise you are doing should help you. thanks and good luck.
