I have just started taking Orlistat. Ive been on it for 3 days, Ive cut out bread, gone to low fat spread, but my stomach is playing up,  Im also a diabetic type 2.  My biggest problem being is I dont eat meat or veg..  (I know what your gonna say.. what do you eat..lol).

I eat mainly potatoe products, pasts, and salads, I eat some fruit but not much, I do eat thinly sliced ham.  What sort of things can be recommended food wise.

    Hi

    I have a blog with meal ideas if you want i can send you the link.

    You say you don't eat meat but you eat Ham? is that the only meat you DO eat? what about Quorn you need some protein in your diet. What do you eat everyday?

    You say your stomach is playing up are you getting any orange oil? if you are it would be the butter

      yes, Ham is the only meat I eat,, it has to be very thinly sliced.  I have tried quorn but the texture of it makes me gag.   Yes I have the Orange oil when going to the toilet.  Im not having butter, but flora light which was recommended.  If you  have any recipes I would greatly appreciate them as eating salad and boiled potatoes every tea time is getting me down

    Why have you cut out bread? It's what you put on it that matters!

      I also suffer with IBS.. and I have found bread to be a trigger..  I do allow myself a slice of 50/50 every so often

    I thought we could only have the flora lighter than light as the light one is still over 5g per 100g x
