In brief: Yes with guidance

You need to work with your physician to be sure the safest approach.
Your bmi indicates that you are obese, and i understand your incentive. Your physician will be able to advise you about your restriction and could even send you to a hepatologist.: an expert in liver disease. Your thyroid therapy should be fairly straightforward.
