Weight loss in Hypothyroidism is difficult, why?  Let's discuss this in the detail.

As you all know, if our body is not able to burn more calories than we consume, it accumulate in the body and it is a cause of weight gain.

In simple term, metabolism is a process to use your energy (calories) in the body taken by food. An under-active thyroid, slow down the metabolism process and so calorie burning process also become slow. Understand with example, if you consume 1500 calories each day and you are able to burn only 500 calories for the day, the remaining 1000 calories will store in your body and increase your weight, and this will happen each day due to Hypothyroidism.

So what is the solution. There is only a solution that you have to stick on healthy diet plan and routine if you want to lose and control your weight.
