Thyroid Patients Share Which Popular Diets and Weight Loss Plans Worked For Them

By June 28, 2011

Follow me on:

For many thyroid patients, hypothyroidism slows the metabolism, and causes or contributes to weight gain, or make it tough -- and seemingly impossible at times -- to lose weight.

I get emails every day asking which diets work, which ones don't. Should thyroid patients try the HCG diet, low-carb, or a "paleo" approach? Gluten-free? Weight Watchers? What works?

There are thousands of different diet programs, and books coming out every day, and it's confusing for thyroid patients who are looking for the right program. But who better to tell us than the patients themselves, speaking directly from the "diet trenches" so to speak!

So I've collected hundreds of reviews of favorite diet and weight loss programs -- including the HCG Diet, Weight Watchers, and Atkins, among others -- including patients who have both pros and cons. These diets are reviewed from the unique perspective of thyroid patients, so you are bound to find someone you can relate to, and get a much more insider view of these diets.

To explore these reviews, start at the Master Directory of Thyroid Patient Reviews of Popular Diets
