I have thyroid and pco. Can I reduce weight only with diet plan since I am honestly not finding time for exercise.

Regular physical activity is mandatory to keep fit and lose weight with PCOS and hypothyroidism. You need to focus on your lifestyle with changes in eating pattern and physical activity. Weight loss might be slow but will happen with the right diet in PCOS. Focus on higher protein intake, lower fat and restrict carbohydrates to complex ones only. Avoid simple sugars completely. 'Eat Out' less and have good quantity of fresh foods which are not processed.
