In brief: Good nutrition

Although the oral contraceptive pills do slightly affect thyroid levels by increasing thyroid binding globulin the minimal dosage of the pill no longer causes "estrogen bloating and water retention, a leading cause in weight gain.
Eat a proper balanced diet, exercise, and get plenty of sleep and you will not "look like the stay puff marshmellow man".
