Your present BMI = 26, which is just above the normal range of 18-25. To achieve your ideal BMI of 22, you would need to weigh 56 kg. I trust that you are receiving medical treatment with Eltroxin for your underactive thyroid? if not, ask the dr to prescribe this hormone for you. If you have PCOS then you probably also suffer from insulin resistance. It is essential for anyone with insulin resistance to consult a clinical dietitian, because the correct diet is one of the most important factors in treatment. Check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian in your area. The dietitian will take your insulin resistance, PCOS, medications and other conditions such as overweight , into account when working out a diet for you, which will be based on foods with a low glycaemic index (GI). Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'The right approach' and read the articles on the GI. Also click on ‘Food as Medicine' on the Diet Site and then on ‘Type 2 diabetes'. Also start doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life).
