    you can have as much as you want as long as you watch the fat intake. if you get snack attacks, fruit, veg and hummus or a slice of toast etc are good.

    I find that skinny cow ice cream helps me on those moments and its low in fat and calories

    I just wanna say that i do think you need to eat with these tablets!

    Im only on day 9 and the first week i hardly ate a thing! it was like being back at weight watchers. I listened to everyones comments and i started eating a bit more.


    I am careful to eat low fat but am feeling so much better that im not hungry! I have lost 4lbs now and am determined to get to my goal weight!

    I have not yet had any side effects, a few spots but i think they are starting to settle down now. :D

    A good sweet snack is pink and whites. They are just wafer and mallow. The total fat per wafer is 0.12g and sat fat is 0.04g. I get mine in sainsburys and like to have one with a cuppa.

    I also live off snack a jacks and have a bannana every morn about 11 with a coffee!

    This forum is ace and is what keeps me determined!

    :lol: :D

    This is a day from the diet book from orlistat


    1 serving of musli, 1/4 semi skimmed milk, 1 boiled egg, 1 tsp low fat spread, 1 tsp marmite, slice a brown toast.

    This meal 14g


    3oz chicken, 1 small can sweetcorn, 1tbls low fat dressing, 1 small white pitta bread 1stp black pepper, 1 med serving of peaches with 1 serving of dream topping

    This meal 9g fat


    haddock fillet 1 tbls of mashed pot with margarine, 1 serving of peas, 1 serving of brussel sprouts (9) 1 medium serving of fruit cocktail 1 scoop of low fat ice cream

    This meal 10g fat


    10 cherries

    2 ginger snaps

    This 1g fat

    people think diet and think they cannot eat very much this is based on 1500 cal a day you have to eat regularly and remember portion size on plate veg half, carbs quarter and protien quarter and a sensable size plate not a turkey platter. :D

    I'm eating loads more food. I stick to about 1600 calories a day as you see from that I have loads to lose. As I drop so will the calories.

    1600 calories is a lot of food if it's the right sorts of food. I'm eating more now than ever before.

    I was the sort of person who would eat a bag of crisps and a mars bar for lunch then pick all afternoon. That type of eating soon whacks out the calories and loads more too. I had one day where I still did this but won't again :oops:

    For sweet things I try to have sugar free jelly, low sugar angel delight with skimmed milk, a bag of iced gems, skinny cow as nicky said or a breakfast bar - muesli type fruit and nut thing. Not all on the same day though :lol:

    Thats alot of food, I increased my intake after reading some of the post on this site, and it's seems to be paying off. :D

    I seem to have been on a diet of some sort or another forever and have become paranoid about putting anything in my mouth sad

    At last this time I feel more relaxed about eating as long as you keep the fat low, these little guys really work :o

    We'll see how well on Thursday 1st weigh in at the docs :shock:

    I know I've lost, just wish it was Stones not just Pounds!!!

    Hey Twinkly,

    I'm glad you've got your head round it now :!:

    Don't we all wish stones instead of pounds :!: :!: But good things come to those that wait and after all, it is better to lose it slowly you know 1 or 2 pound a week.

    So see you in Shrinksville now that you've got on our train :!:
