I am 40 something and have high cholesterol and an underactive thyroid function. I take something for the thyroid everyday. I want to try to get my cholesterol down without medication. I am also about 10kg overweight...don't ask me what that is in pounds you yanks and pommies! I have started eating much more raw food the past 4 weeks, almost no dairy and meat. I have lost a mere 2 kg and sort of nothing this week. But I will keep trying and hope to find support and advice on this forum. Is there anyone else from the Central Coast, NSW out there????? :rolleyes:

Welcome! Hey 10 kg is about 20 lb - so it is an easy calculation. I grew up with metric but waiting for letting go 1 kg of fat was too long. On the dark side there are more to go, but the goal is the same - to see scale moving to the certain point and stay there.
Enjoy your stay here with us and keep RAW. It is the best way to go!
