Lose weight: Some women mostly store fat on butt and thighs, some on belly; others all over. Lose weight (fat) and things get smaller (just not as much as you may like). Inadequate protein, iron intake, excess in total calories in, relative excess in carbohydrate calories in (especially simple sugars), and alcohol intake all play a role. Inadequate calorie spending, i.e. Activity, if not exercise, is key.

Nutrient dense foods: Eat foods that are nutrient dense (like meat, fish, poultry, eggs, cheese, low starch vegatables and water) avoid foods that are not nutrient dense (like starches and sugars, including fruit) nutrient dense foods will increase your basal metabolic rate. On the other hand, starches and sugars impair thyroid metabolism via affects on your liver (which helps activate thyroid hormone).
