    You can have 15g of fat per meal but the fat content can't be over 5g per 100g. 

    So you can eat the whole thing as it's low fat. 

    People get mixed up when they look at the fat in grams for the whole thing! It's not that it's per 100g. 

    Else ud be allowed crisp & cheese!!! Which your not, well not without accidents!! Just keep it low fat stick to the 5g rule and you will be fine. 

    Enjoy smile

      I was told by my GP 15 grams per meal and no more than 5 grams of fat per 100gm. So 300 grams of it is your total of 15 grams!

      You are allowed 15grams of fat per meal with each tablet, taken 3 times a day or the Orlistat demon will come get you and march you off to the WC, when you least expect it!frown

      If there is no fat content in a meal you dont need to take a tablet with that meal. You cannot carry over from the day before if you happen to have less fat.

      You do need some fats hun, I would not make a habit of only having 9grams.

      Lovely Britney may be on a bit later, maybe she can explain things a little better than me! eek

      No they dont make you fuller hun!

      I just have cereal for breakfast with soya milk, take my own sandwich to the office with a piece of fruit, I nibble a bit of Ryvita now and again with my cup of black coffee. Of a night its salads, stirfry without the fry! lol, sometimes steamed fish with veggies or something from the soya range of meat alternatives. I have soya yogurt if I want something sweet, they make a nice chocolate version in the small pots.

      I try hard not to fixate on food, but do plan ahead. Sometimes I might make a veggie casserole with some pasta in and have that over 3 nights....depends on how the mood grabs me!

      I get nights when I am really hungry and others when I am not, I always keep something in my fridge ready to munch on, like a salad of some sort. I love apple and carrot salad, I make it with a little yogurt instead of mayo.

      Darn it! I am making myself hungry talking about flippin food! I got another hour and a half at work to go yet! lol

    Hi Suzanne :-)

    You are only allowed 15 grams of fat in total for each meal, so I guess you could have just under 3/4 of it, but nothing else that contains fat in your meal....or the Orlistat Demon will come get you! twisted
