Thanks for the info - I think the weight loss- regular exercising and tracking my eating - is making me look more closely at what I'm putting in my body.

Red yeast rice is a Chinese treatment for lowering cholesterol. Some people think it's safer/better than statins because it's "natural," but I'm not so sure it's natural by the time it's been put in a jar in pill form. There are some other possible problems with it.

You can read about it on WebMD:

I'm don't know what red yeast rice is. If it's a weight-loss supplement I don't believe in get quick weight loss. If you lose it fast you gain it back fast. My plan is to reeducate my mind and body to eat healthy and be physically active. Nutritional yeast is suppose to have vitamin 12 for vegans which is necessary.

Yay you for the 10 lb. weight lose! I haven't tried it. I haven't tried red yeast rice because it's not regulated so I wouldn't know for sure what I was getting and because it has the same side effects as statins. Hope you get some answers.
