Best Exercise for Hypothyroid


I've recently been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and have started taking Armour Thyroid. I have gained about 30 to 35 pounds in the last year and a half, despite my best efforts at diet and exercise. I'm not happy about my diagnosis, but I am glad to have found a reason for my fatigue and why nothing I was doing seemed to work.

As I regain some of my energy, I'm anxious to get working at taking off this excess weight. I've been reading conflicting info on the best exercise for hypothyroid patients. Recently, I've been seeing articles saying that steady-state cardio may be very detrimental to weight loss in hypothyroid patients and that intervals and heavy weight training are they way to go.
