Hypothyroid & hashimoto's, always bloated, can't lose weight. On Synthroid (thyroxine) & small amount of cytomel. How do I reduce bloating & lose at least 10 lbs?

In brief: Diet and exercise

If your thyroid hormone and TSH levels are normal than you just have to do what the rest of the world does to lose weight.
Do not increase thyroid replacement - that weight loss is muscle, not fat.
