My daughter has thyroid problems and has lost 58 pounds in the last 9 months.
She quick started herself with one of the e-diet plans (for a month) and taught herself to replicate serving sizes and to develop recipes based on the same nutritional values.
The month was enough time to get her body used to 5 small meals a day.
But, I think the greatest help to her weight loss was exercising 30 mins a day. She says at first she could barely get through 10 mins of the workout, so she would do 10 mins 3 times a day until she could do more at once.
Good news, she is now off thyroid medication.
