Why would you: Be without thyroid medication, it's inexpensive, if you're hypothyroid get your medication

Treat the problem: Take your thyroid medication, so your metabolism is balanced better. After that, cut your calories and increase your exercise. There is no substitute for mental discipline and dedication in weight loss programs. You need to commit to eating the right food in the right quantities, and exercising.
