  1. Hello Gurpreet. Welcome to Medimetry.

    Gurpreet controlling thyroid with the help of diet is the last option. But, yes weight can be controlled with the help of exercise and healthy diet which can also help you to control your hypothyroidism. Follow a regular eating pattern with small frequent meals. All meals should include a protein source from either of the pulses, sprouts, legumes, milk, curd or buttermilk. Avoid soya and its products. Start drinking lukewarm water with 1 squeezed lemon after every meal. Add pinch of black pepper or dalchini powder to salads or lemon water to increase your basal metabolic rate. Incase you eat non veg, avoid meat, deep fried non veg preparations. Cut down on junk foods and refined foods. Drink sugar free beverages like tea without sugar etc. Exercise 30 mins daily to help you burn more calories. Go for brisk walk, running, jogging, cycling etc. Hope you find this helpful. Feel free to contact in case of any more queries.
