smile I lost 7Ib I'm delighted. I know most of it would be water but still I'm very pleased. Do you have to eat the full 30g of fat for the tablets to work or is less ok?

    great news well done, the 30g's is the max if you eat less then that's fine but remember the tablets only work on fat intake

    someone once put on here about the doc or nurse advising to aim for 25-30g a day as 1/3 of the fat is eliminated by the tablets and the body needs 20g (after the 1/3 eliminated) to run efficiently, i personally seemed to struggle to up mine and started having a drink of hot choc (cadburys highlights) to boost it if needed.

    hmmmm When i last went to the docs, I told the doc that I thought the first couple of weeks went really bad as I didn't eat enough fat. I was only eating about 10-15g of fat per DAY, and hence I didn't lose anything.

    The doctor looked at me like I was 4 years old, and said 'Dont be silly, there is no such thing as not eating enough fat, if you don't eat fat, you will lose weight'.... I just could not be bothered to argue with her sad
