Dear Gaining & Gaining
Because you don't list your height in metres I cannot calculate your BMI to see if you are overweight or not. If you are steadily gaining weight after the removal of your thyroid gland then it may be a good idea to consult an Endocrinologist (a dr who specialises in hormone imbalances). Ask your gp to refer you. Reducing your fat intake moderately (every gram of fat contributes 37 kJ to the diet, while carbs and protein only contribute 16 and 17 kJ per gram respectively) and doing plenty of cardio exercise should do the trick.
