Hello folks, my name is Shelley and I have PCOS. I am 5ft 7 and weigh 16stone 0lbs, I will be getting Orlistat soon once the hospital have written to my GP, and i have started on a low fat diet in preparation and lost 19lbs in a month ( I was 17st 5lbs ).
I understand that you can't eat more than 15g of fat per meal, and no more than 45g per day, but what i can't understand is this 'no more than 5g per 100g' thing. if you had a food high in fat but only ate a very small portion of it, so the fat cotent for that meal was less than the 15g, wouldn't that be ok still?
Is it just fat we are supposed to watch? I know that jelly babies are low in fat but obviously high in sugar, but if they're low in fat, surely they wouldn't give you the squits?
Since finding this forum, i have become a bit confused and need help, i have no problem with restricting the fat in my diet, but if i have to start watching sugar too and anything else, i am going to start feeling deprived and will struggle.
Please help, thank you in advance. Shelley
