Hypothyroidism is when the thyroid gland doesn't produce enough thyroid hormones. This can impact metabolic processes and lead to weight gain.

Generally, there's no specific diet for hypothyroidism. Although many sites claim hypothyroidism diets, no scientific confirmation indicates that consuming or avoiding particular foods can enhance thyroid functionality in those suffering from hypothyroidism.

However, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and eat the right variety of foods in the correct proportions. This includes eating fruits and vegetables, whole grains, unsaturated fats, and drinking enough water.

Regarding weight gain, fasting can potentially benefit hypothyroidism by promoting weight loss and reducing inflammation. Two manageable fasting methods that could be considered here are 5:2 and 6:1 fasting.
