    Hiya. The fat content you need to be looking at is the fat per 100g not the total. 

    1large egg is actually 9g each!!! 

    I use to have the odd egg tho, it does effect people different and if you're ok with it then don't stop. 

    Tablets do take a good week to kick in tho so just be careful. Well done on yr loss up to now.

    Oh yes your bread it's not per slice either it's per 100g so if u had hovis whole meal it's 0.6 per slice but it's 2.5 g per 100g it's that fat your meant to be counting. 

    I think this is where people are going wrong thinking they are well within the 15g fat allowance per meal when they are actually miles over. smile

      I'm so glad I read this lol. I'm into my third month and have been doing it wrong the whole time. I knew it had to be lower than 5g per 100g but i didn't know it was that number you added up. Oops.haha.

      Thank you.

      But that's if ur having 100g of bread remember. It takes some getting it head round!! 

      It's things like crisp they are 5g per bag but u look at 100g of fat it's 30g or something like that!!! They are a big no no. 

      Look at the grams per 100g

      My understanding is 15g per meal but 5g per 100g so say u were to have steamed chicken and a tin of spagetti the spagetti is measured 0.3g perr 100 so say u wanted half a tin its 0.6g fat well within ur allowance? Xx

      So say for instance i have 2 slices of bread that came to 4.6g i cant have anymore of that but i still have 10.4 allowances left to use so say i put summit else with it as long as i measure it to the 100g then the overall meal adds to 15g ive done it right ive been scanning everythin on MFP so ive prob done it bloody wrong! Have u had any side affects? Im have a small steamed chixken with a WW soup broth now so my total is only 5g for whole meal im guessing thats right leaving me a few grams of fat to use for snacks? Xx

      My understanding is thats fine i cant see aby other way of doing it as long as u dont go over 5g perr 100g urll be fine so ur bread is within that allowance so itll leave u with enoufh allwance to make it up to 15g per meal providing u keep to those rules id double check with a women named britney shes amazing on here but i think im right xx

      I think this works on a fat basics opposed to a calorie one but ive monitored it all to be on safe side today ive had one slice whole meal toast per 100g it was 2.5g 2 quorn sausages 1.4g per sausage (2.7 per 100g so if i had to follow that still under 5g) one small poached egg and spoon full of spagetti lunch i had a ww soup 2.5g for full tin my fitneas plan says im still well within allowances ? Xx
