I'd suggest you modify your diet above all else.

What foods do you eat and what times do you eat them?

(Add more protein in this meals like eggs, chicken, beef etc. You'll potentially feel fuller.)

(Add another meal in here, with some protein and carbs. I'd suggest some kind of flesh source low fat dairy or peanuts, with an added carbohyrate source like veggies, fruits or some higher carb nuts, like cashews, groundnuts or chestnuts as examples.)

(Fish has heavy metal content, so I would advise you to limit fish to low metal fish, or if you consume high metal fish, limit to 3x a week as per current consumer guidelines, but if you do consume low metal fish, limit to around 100g a day either in one sitting, or as 2 x 50g portions a day, each portion being in seperate meals obviously.

You can find metal in fish lists somewhere on the net, which tell you about the metal content in different types of fish, if you're not sure :) )

I'll go the other way here.

I'd suggest you say screw you diet and just become a powerlifter. You definitely have the structure for it.

No unfortunately nothing but I went to the doctor and found out about the real reason behind failure to lose weight.

Its hypothyroidism. TSH was 12 about 1 month back. The doctor prescribed me a medicine and told me to take it for 6 weeks and get blood checked again.

Lets see if I lose any fat once thyroid level normalizes.

Sorry to hear that, but at least you know the cause and can hopefully correct it now. Are you at least working out?

Yes I am still working out but instead of doing splits I am doing full body workouts 3 times a week.

I am following this routine

http://www.muscleandstrength.com/workou ... out?page=1

But I must admit that in frustration I am eating a bit more fat. Not necessarily junk food but I am adding butter to food to add taste.

Looks like a nice routine!

Have you tried "I Cant Believe It's Not Butter" spray yet?? I don't know whats in it, but I believe it has zero fat and calories. Tastes like the real thing to me!

That product has not reached India yet. ATM we can buy things processed butter, processed cheese, and some flavors of mayo and sandwich spreads.

I don't believe that. Water has no calories, but I'd expect that to have calories even if it was just 0.5 calories.

It might have helped to list the sodium properly.

0mg 0% for 1 spray 5% for 5 sprays

5 sprays contribute an additional 15mg of sodium.

It could have said 0.3mg, 0.2% for 1 spray, just to not confuse by adding the disclaimer at the bottom, then there's no need for the disclaimer, as you can add the 15mg for 5 sprays disclosure to the 5% disclosure in the initial listing.

Those tweaks would have saved time on label printing, made the listings clearer and possibly sped up production a little more and saved money over time on ink costs, by needing to print on the labels a bit less, so savings could eventually be passed up to the consumer, even if realistically it was only 1¢ per container.

A pernickety detail perhaps, but common sense all the same I feel :P.
