i can advice to add one protein supplement like proteinx or kabipro / b-protien 2 scoops two times with 150 ml milk. Or lukewarm water. Diet- you need high calorie diet. That means you have to add quality meals enriched by protein. Add more rice in meals added by butter or ghee, some times fried rice or polao you can. Vegetables soup or strew 2 times, maximim mix vegetables in meals, 2- pcs sweets. In a day. Add sprouts, pulses. Add puddings cream paneer, yogurts, curd as possible. 2 pca big size banana like in break fast & at 11 am. Sleep min 8-9 hours. No stress, more water, electrolytes, fruits juices, banana shake, more importantly add enough protein by milk (d. T or skim), chana, curd, lassi, butter milk also better. Finally I can advice to add one protein supplement.

You must have confusion ..you are in a condition of hyperthyroididism. Introduce 2-3 multigrain chapatis in 3 meals like brkfst,lunch&dinner. Take sprouts (dinner)and (banana shake at brkfst). Eat cauliflower & cabbage 3/week. Do this change for 15 days then let me know. Tell me your levels of t3 t4 tsh. It will help to make more choices.
