Hypothyroidism and weightloss
 
Admins- if this is not the right forum please fill free to move to the proper forum.

Ok so I posted a few months back about finding out I have Hypothyroidism in another thread. Now that it has been a few months and I feel to so much better, I need help figuring out my diet.

I have myfitnesspal so I can actually watch my calories, I only weigh once a week so I don't get disappointed. Other than adding atleast 30 min of cardio to my routine a day I have not done much. Is there a better diet food wise that is better than what I am doing now?

A typical day is:

Breakfast:
1egg/2 egg white omelet with 1 slice of cheese
1 yogurt
1 cup of coffee with 2tbs cinn vanilla creamer

Lunch:
Lo cal wrap
Fat free turkey 2 slices
Sliced cheese 2 slices
Cream cheese (vegi) 2tbs

Dinner:
3-4 oz meat
Veggies (typically salad with 2tbs dressing)
Sometimes a starch like potatoes or pasta

Snacks:
Fruit
Pretzels (11)


Drinks:
4-8oz water
32 oz or more diet soda

Again any help would be great! I have heard that gluten free is way better, but I am not sure how to go about that.

I am medicated hypo and do more protein, veggies, and fruits. I do only water, no soda or carbs. I have lost 13 lbs in 3 weeks so far. I lost 63 the last time I did it.

Are you on meds?

I am thinking that is what I will have to do. I am on a small dose of meds ( the 17th I get blood work to see if they need to change it before they give me a year supply). I know when I keep my net Cals low (in the 1000) I feel better. I will have to cut out the soda again and the carbs (I don't crave them like I used to.

I can't cut carbs out completely, but do you think I would have better results doing carbs at dinner instead?

I would do carbs when you plan to be most active. I have found it easier to lose weight now that I am on meds for it. It does not melt off, but I can lose so much easier than I could when I was not on the meds.

Yeah I was going to do carbs mostly at dinner but I think at lunch would be better because I walk for 30 min before I get my oldest from school in the afternoon that would allow me to work it off.

That 1.3 lbs I lost is after being medicated for 2 months, but only actively trying to lose weight for the last 20 days. So that makes me happy. If I can get another lb off before my next appointment then my dr will be happy. I have been stuck in the 240's since having miss M. And in the 200's since a few months after having miss B. I am hoping to have it all gone by next summer. 25 by Jan would be a great start so right now that is my mini goal!
