Our expert says:
As I cannot judge if you are overweight or not (I would need your height in meters and your weight in kg), it is difficult to say why you are not losing weight. Please check the protein shakes that you are using because if they provide more than 2100 kJ per serving (or per meal), then they may not cause weightloss. In general, adult women need to reduce their energy intakes to 6300 kJ per day (2100 kJ for each of their 3 daily meals), so any product that is used as a meal replacement should not provide more energy. Also check with your dr that your dosage of Eltroxin is correct. In some cases, patients with hypothyroidism need to have their dosage increased over time. If you do go for a medical checkup ask the dr to also test if you suffer from insulin resistance which can hamper weightloss.
I do hope you will start losing weight.
