In brief: Nutrient dense foods

Eat foods that are nutrient dense (like meat, fish, poultry, eggs, cheese, low starch vegatables and water) avoid foods that are not nutrient dense (like starches and sugars, including fruit) nutrient dense foods will increase your basal metabolic rate.
On the other hand, starches and sugars impair thyroid metabolism via affects on your liver (which helps activate thyroid hormone).

In brief: No diets

85% of subclinical hypothyroidism is due to autoimmune hashimoto's thyroiditis.
No diet will change the 3-4% yearly decline to frank hypothyroidism. In the world i deficiency is the #1 cause of hypothyroidism - but not in the us - so no diet will help.
