How can I control my high cholesterol?

I have hypothyroidism and I take levothyroxine daily, I try to eat healthy but sometimes I eat junk food, I really would like to start being a healthier person in diet and exercise both. Any tips on what to eat or supplements to take for overall nutrition any good tips on working out to lose 30 stubborn pounds that came with my hypothyroidism? I use to be in top shape before I was diagnosed, but now I need to drop these unhealthy and unwanted pounds! I need to stay motivated too. Any good advice that I will stick to daily?

cut your junk food if you still want to live longer. high cholesterol and obesity is not a joke coz not only hypothyroidism, but will also cause you diabetes and several heart problems too. severe diabetes problem can cause you your entire leg and eyes. theres nothing in the world can solve your problem and remove all your fat intake if you keep on having such poor diets. cardio, make it at least 30 minutes for 3 times a week and start controlling your diet. search for a pills called "Reductil" which helps control your appetite, and another one called "Nopal" which is some fibre material with vitamin supplements that soak up the oil of your food intake inside your stomach. Yet i'd really recommend you to get a serious consultation with a fitness pro and a dietitian, you can find one easily and get LIVE consultation (video conferencing) at just enter your problem and you WILL get detailed answers from the certified pros. hope these help!

Hi well come to Hcm.
Wait gain due to hypothyroid remains under control with control of it.Your excdess wt
at present is associated with your life style, food habbits and genetic factor. genetic
factor is not treatable but other two are treatable. Avoid taking junk food, sweets,
high carbohydrate and fatty foods. take excess of green leafy vegetabls and fresh
fruits with low calori value, excess of salads. Daily exercise of minimum 30 to 40 minuites. will help you if not reduction atleast will help you to control increase of Wt.
