    I don't have any recipe ideas as I have some eating problems and what I do probably isn't good.

    However you are allowed 45g of fat a day i think, most people here go for 30g. 15g per meal, 5g per 100g which isn't easy i'll tell you!  If I'm brutally honest I sometimes go a little over the 5g per 100g rule because of my very limited eating habits. It's not so easy for me to follow this rule without being totally miserable and even more limited. 

    if you go over your fat allowance of 15g you get accidents. Or maybe just long time in the bathroom. I've yet to actually have an accident however I have gone over my fat intake and ended up in the bathroom for ages. smile 

    This is probably a great time not to have scales, you're just starting out and not being able to weigh yourself every morning or whatever is probably best as these sometimes can take quite a bit of time to take effect. x
