Hello XXXXXXX and thanks foe writing in

It is very difficult for Thyroid patient to lose weight but not impossible. Let me suggest you some useful tips both to treat hypothyroidism and reduce weight.

Following a healthy, well-balanced diet is a great starting point for hypothyroidism patients who choose to lose weight.

1. Certain foods like carrots, spinach, olive oil, avocados, asparagus, whole-grain cereals, bananas and oily fish are helpful in improving thyroid functions and metabolism. When planning meals, be sure to regularly include these foods.
2. Foods that interfere with iodine uptake must be avoided. These are cabbage, broccoli, sweet potatoes, lima beans and soy products.
3. Cold drinks, sodas, etc., contain caffeine affects thyroid function, so they should be avoided.
4. Exercise for about 45 minutes per day is sufficient and helps in reducing weight and stress.
5. Stress is thought to be a contributing factor for people who develop hypothyroidism. Avoid stress as much as you can.
6. Finally it all just depends on how many calories you consume. It is the calories which results in weight gain. Take calories according to your weight (about 1900 calories per day). Burn your calories to reduce weight by regular exercises.

You can calculate the amount of calories present in the food by using the internet and make your own diet chart according to that and your taste. You can know by this that how much you can take and how much you have to burn by exercise.

Hope this will help you. Write if you have any follow up query.

Best Wishes

Hello and thanks for writing again
Yes banana adds up to weight if used daily with milk and in large quantity. Also I have written banana because it helps in improving thyroid functions. Banana has more calories so you can reduce calories in other products you have to take rest of day.

You are following a good diet cart but make sure that you include every minerals and vitamins in it. Continue with honey it helps in reducing weight. More importantly you have to control your Thyroid function, abnormal Thyroid Function Test cause gradual weight gain as you are experiencing it in past few months.

Hello there
Yellow banana is good. As per I know lady finger is known to be good in previous studies but now it is in the list of vegetables to be avoided. As per the beans are concern except XXXXXXX beans all other has to be avoided. If you have read about these vegetables recently please let me know.

I am female aged 64. Yesterday I noticed a foul smelling discharge from my belly button, it smelled liked blue cheese but stronger. On inspection I have a very red and sore navel, it is really uncomfortable. I have been cleaning it with Iodine since then, is this the correct treatment? I live in Spain by the way.

I have been tired for a few years now. My husband and I just moved across country and the fatigue from that has been debilitating. I now am swelling in my ankles and I cannot get a good night's sleep. I thought I might be developing heart disease as I am about 80 pounds overweight. Tonight I stumbled on articles about iodine deficiency, same symptoms, and in addition my skin is very dry. I also tend to suffer from depression periodically and anxiety. We don't have a lot of money so maybe you have some advice as to where to start on this. I am so tired of being tired. I need to fix it.

HI, i dont know if this is valid or if I am talking to a dr. but i wanted to just ask anyway. I'm 5'4, 153 pds. and my heart races sometimes. Not fast but different sometimes. When its hot or i'm tired and do not get enough sleep or dehydrated. My mom kind of has the same thing. I know i have to lose at least 20 more pds. and my son is 19 mths. and i have alot of stress on me right now. I wonder what it is? I had a thryoid issue but its clear now and normal, they said it was a lack of iodine since delivery my son and it was out of whack but its fine now i just monitor it now. thanks
