Okay- good. Because low thyroid is very common and it can interfere with the best of diet plans.
The most important thing about losing weight is diet and exercise.
Weight loss is about 70% food intake and 30% exercise.
So you need to make sure you are exercising at least 3x a week for 30 minutes and bringing your heart rate to about 75% of max capacity.

The 'Decade' Diet is probably one of the best diets out there, because it addresses different nutritional concerns by age.
