Hi, I am 59 and also hypothyroid. I have it under control with levothyroxine. I eat according to the plate plan that I learned from our local dietician. I eat nothing white, no dairy, no sugar, only whole grains and mostly organic. I fill one half of my plate with veggies, 1/4 with protein source (no red meat), and 1/4 with whole grain or sweet potatoe. I have lost 12 lbs so far on this way of eating. It is not a diet it is the way I will eat the rest of my life. Healthy Eating as a way of life is the way to look at it, not a diet. Good luck. You CAN do it!
