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

In brief: 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.

In brief: Weight loss

Control hypothyroidism with medications and lose weight with a balanced sensible diet with exercise.
This is simple mathematics. If you consume less than you are using you will lose weight. Eat three meals a day leaving the table satisfied but not stuffed. Eliminate sugars, soft drinks, limit ETOH and exercise aggressively. Drink 4-6 8oz glasses of water a day.
