    Hi,
    I am thinking about joining SW but I need to stick to a cholesterol lowering diet, i.e. low saturated fat. And wondered if it would be compatible. I am really happy with my present diet and I am losing weight, but oh so slowly and really would like to speed up a bit. However the health considerations have to take priority.

    I would love to hear your views please.
    Cheers SilverS

    I think it's perfect all fats are synned, spread/mayo/oil etc
    Cheese and dairy are limited so skimmed milk is acceptable I would think?

    Eggs do not have any effect on the cholesterol in the blood.
    My friend said she wished she'd known about slimming world when she was on a cholesterol reducing diet.

    Yes it would definately be perfect for lowering cholesterol, however, it is not a quick fix diet, it is healthy eating & you'll find you will lose weight but maybe not a quickly as you would like.

    Oh, I am not looking for a really quick fix as I don't think that is a good idea. It has taken me almost a year to lose a stone so I am looking to improve on that. I would be really happy with a pound a week. I am looking to improve my health as well as my shape and really want to get into the normal BMI range.

    Thanks for the info!
