Welcome, random. I'm so glad you found us, this lifestyle change was exactly what I needed to reverse the menopausal symptoms which were starting to really bug me. I am 49 and am healthier, slimmer, fitter and way happier than I was 11 months ago when I started this and I'm sticking with it. Ditching the grains and those processed oils, and most other packaged things, was the best thing I could have done. Lost the weight I needed to, and I now sleep through the night, have gained energy, evened out the mood swings and sugar lows, hot flushes and bloating went away (unless I eat wheat). So, just do it. You ahve nothing to lose and everything to gain. Any questions, fire away.
