Write a Review: Pros and Cons of the Atkins Diet for Thyroid Patients

See Published Reviews

The Atkins Diet is a popular weight loss program, and one that some thyroid patients are turning to when they want to lose weight. It's no secret that many thyroid patients end up hypothyroid, with an underactive or non-functioning thyroid, a slower metabolism, and other hormonal imbalances that contribute to weight gain, or difficulty losing weight. If you have followed Atkins or similar low-carbohydrate diets, share your story and/or a review of the program -- including the pros and cons -- from your own unique perspective as a thyroid patient.
