Default Need lose 168 pound in a year ! Diet suggestions?!

Heyy! Ok I need lose 168 pound ! I've tried everything! I normally eat 1200 to 1500 like I always have , drink 2 to 4 litres of water a day, I have an under active thyroid and PCOS which are the reasons why I can't lose it and why I put it on in the first place I've tried a lot of diets including cabbage soup , low GI ect and nothing works ! I tried normal healthy eating and put on 9 pounds in a week I am trying to do more excercise but it seems every other week I'm I'll ! I have gastroenteritis now and had tonsillitis for 3 weeks only two weeks ago ! So I need a healthy diet with low cal and low carb as that affects one my illnesses and also as little fruit and veg as poss as that affects my other illness LOL sorry v confusing ! X

I am no good at healthy eating, but Weight Watchers sounds good to me too. I was reading in the doctors office for a healthy diet to eat mostly whole grains and vegetables then fruits then fish and chicken then certain dairy and only have red meat, sugar and fats sparingly. Excercise everyday. Walking Tilly would be great. If you have a Wii or Xbox or Nitendo they have fun dance games and active games that excercise you and you don't ever realize your excercizing. It is VERY TOUGH I know and I wish you all the best! I'm sure everyone on here and your mother will support you daily you just take one day at a time, and if by chance you do eat something that isn't the best for weight loss DON'T GIVE UP! It is one item or one meal. Don't beat yourself up or get down. Just tell yourself OOPS--I slipped and go from there trying to do better from then on.

I would be looking at ways to boost your metabolism. Try a small amount of exercise before eating, and tiny, frequent meals, maybe 5 or 6 times a day. I would just do straight forward calorie counting if you can't eat certain foods. So divide your allowed calories by the amount of meals, so 5 meals of 100 calories each. Is 500 calories definitely what the docs recommend for you? It seems really low to me, especially for someone your age who is still growing. Make sure each meal is nutrient dense, with plenty of lean protein. 500 calories just doesn't leave any room for any junk food or treats I'm afraid.

Have they not put you on medication for your Thryoid? I have been on Meds for 17 years.
