Cheat meals/taking breaks from Orlistat

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hey group :-) 

Now the way I have always dieted/ eaten healthy has included a cheat day normally a Saturday where I would eat what I wanted. 

Has anything one else just had a treat meal once a week? If you did, did you skip your Orlistat so you didn't get horrendous problems straight away? Also does Orlistat affect your bowels if you consume alcohol? (I don't drink often but my sisters hen do is in 2 weeks and it would be nice to have something to drink)

I am dedicated to losing my weight before anyone takes this as a 'wanting my cake and eating it to' scenario. I don't want to completely ruin my love of food and ban every unhealthy food going. 

I'm sorry for this boring draw out post but I have no-one else to go to and ask.

    Hiya, I treated myself on a Saturday to a bag of marshmallows or jelly sweets if I really wanted too. They are nearly 0 fat but it's just the calories!! I would never have a pizza or Chinese as not taking the tablet for that meal won't work as it's in your system so accidents will still happen. 

    I use to make low fat special fried rice and sticky chicken all below 5% and it felt like a treat. 

    If you're going to take them I wouldn't mess around stopping and starting for a treat. Just stick to it and let your treats be low fat too!!

    Good luck. smile
