Hi You need to check your thyroid for high BMR. Increase your protein intake. For that include more of sprouts, whole pulses, lentils, tofu, paneer etc in your diet. Have 5 soaked almonds, 1-2 walnuts and 2 figs first thing in the morning with a cup of milk. Do exercise and yoga daily. For personalized diet plan contact me through practo. Thanks
