Focus on healthy: eating and exercise. Your target could be eating 1500 kcal/day emphasizing vegetables, fruit, healthy protein and grains. Choose 5+ servings of fruit and vegetables daily, and 3-5 servings of whole grain. Protein serving size is a deck of cards: 2-4/day. Then exercise--burn 500 cal at least 5 days a week.Unless you have thyroid problems, hormones likely not an issue,though may cause other symptoms
