    seeking advice 

    Hi emma, i am wondering if you could give some advice as i have been struggling with my weight all my life. yo-yoing year after year and the older i get the more lost i feel. I turn 30 in october and feel so unhappy with my body. I have actually lost 2kg watching the show, but now on my 3rd week gained weight!! Im frustrated because i have not done anything different too the previous weeks, im finding it hard to figure out what to eat anymore and to keep it as a healthy lifestyle. Could you recommend how i say on track and what i may add in my meals to ensure i could continue to lose the weight?

    Underactive thyroid 

    Hi Emma I am hoping you maybe able to help me. I have been diagnosed with an underactive thryoid in January this year and have it under control by taking medication on a daily basis. My problem is I am having difficulty in losing weight. I have been seeing a dietician for 6 weeks and despite following a very healthy diet with only two red meat meals a day, no diary,drinking at least 2L of water a day and only consuming 1500 calories a day i have lost less than 2Kg. I do at least 12 000 steps 7 days a week (which includes 4 days of jogging/walking 6km), combined with three 30 minute gym sessions a week. I do not drink any alcohol and do not eat any biscuits/cakes. I just cant seem to get my metabolism to kick in no matter what i eat or now much exercise i do. My breakfast consists of rolled oats with oat milk and a boiled egg plus a piece of fruit. Morning tea is yoghurt and fruit, Lunch is a salad plus tuna/salmon. Afternnon tea is piece of wholemeal bread and vegimite. Dinner is steamed veg and salmon/chicken. If i have an additional snack it is often dates/nuts and seeds. I dont know what I am doing wrong. If you can offer any advice I would be very grateful.

My question is at 46 and 85 kilos my bmi is over 33% I would like to work at reducing my weight by 20kilos can you please direct me with the first step. Do I go to my doctor for a full check up and what do i ask for. Cholesterol check. I am a member of a gym do i get a trainer for 3 times a week. Looking at michelle's menu could this be a good start.
