Trying to lose weight, taking slimquick, have severe bloating, weight gain, irregular periods, red spots on stomach. Cause?

Hi, I m a 19 year old female, trying to lose weight been struggling with this for most of my life. I gained a lot of weight over the past few months and found out I have hypothyroidism over summer. When I came back to school in the fall I started eating healthier and got back to the gym. Just this month I started using slimqiuck as a supplement . This is my third week on the pill and I noticed I ve been more bloated, actually gained weight and have had my period twice since using it for 2 weeks. I have these red spots all over my stomach and back so now I m a little concerned. I don t know if you can tell me what this is, or why it is happening, but any advice would help. Thank you!

Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

Kindly stop using slimquick supplement. They are not working for you.

Take your thyroid medicines as prescribed by your doctor.Keep your TSH levels in control.

Evaluate your diet. Check the fat content of the foods that you typically eat. You can use the calorie and fat chart listed in Resources. Eating high-fiber foods, which aid in elimination, can also help reduce weight. Choose a diet that is rich in whole grains.

Practice aerobic exercise. At least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise on a daily basis. The best type of aerobic activity is the kind that you enjoy doing.

Practice total body strength training. Strength training exercises raise your metabolic rate, so you are actually burning more calories in your resting state. Additionally, performing exercises for the upper back will improve your posture & give you a slim look.

Stay hydrated. Drink 8-10 glasses of water.

Sleep peacefully for 8 hours. Avoid stress & exertion.

Be consistent in your efforts.

Take care.
