Is there a good weight loss supplement? I'm overweight. I have hypothyroidism. I usually count calories when I do try to diet

No: There is no weight loss supplement that will provide long lasting effects. Having hypothyroidism would suggest starting by checking your thyroid and adjust replacement doses as needed. Physical exercise and diet remain of paramount importance and will provide, when maintained, long lasting effects.
