    You need to speak with a nutrionist.

    I’m assuming you’re hypothyroid? That’s the most common thyroid condition resulting in weight gain. First off it takes a couple months for thyroid levels to even out after you start taking synthetic thyroid hormone. Secondly, you’ll need to start an exercise program in order to boost your metabolic rate. You’ll also need to consume enough calories to fuel your body, and vary the sources from which you’re getting your proteins. Are you vegan, or will you eat lacto/ovo? Following a vegetarian diet can be dangerous with a thyroid condition – there may be certain nutrients that you cannot metabolize due to your thyroid – for example, you may not be able to convert betacarotene into Vit A.(the only sources of true Vit A are animal). The previous poster was correct in stating that you should seek the advice of a nutritionist; I would also suggest a visit to an endocrinologist.
