what are the diets for insulin resistence and hypothyroid ?

Hi, I am 30 year old unmarried female. My height is 5 ft and weight is 82 kgs. My waist size is 40 and lower ab is 46.5 which is very much and my thighs, hips, byceps and chest etc. are also very fat. I was diagnosed with insulin resistance recently and last year I was already diagnosed with hypothyroid. I am taking medicines regularly as prescribed by doctor now. For background of my reports please go through my previous question which I asked in HCM. Following is the link: - My BP is high - 142/92 mm of Hg (& pr - 86 mm of hg). Can you please suggest me diet plan and what I need to do to reduce weight? How do I keep BP under control? and how do I improve my cholesterol levels. I am using fortune soyabean oil is it good? Which oil is good for cholesterol?

hello there
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.Its indeed difficult to lose weight when one is hypothyroid and also having insulin resistance as hypothyroidism slows down the body's ability to process carbohydrates and also cell's ability to absorb the sugar from blood and so is the state of Insulin resistance which prevents body from using its stored fat for energy. Certain facts need to be borne in mind prior to diet modification like your TSH be preferably in a range of 1-2.There should not be interference of drugs you are on, kind of diet you taking with absorption of hormones you take. With advice of your physician, you may even start on T3 supplements if required. Now about diet, you may try having a low fat, low carbohydrate and sufficient amount of protien. Try restricting on rice , potatoes, pastas, canned products with high sugar content, confectionarries etc.Hope i could answer your query. Wishing you a good health and fitness.Take care.
