Hi all

Need some advice, have to take my daughter to great ormond street hospital next tuesday for 3 days. My query is should i knock orlistat on the head for 3 days as i will not be able to keep a check on my fat intake as i will be eating hospital food. Or should i continue with orlistat and pray my different food intake will not have any adverse effects.

    Hi Wiggs

    Difficult, i'm in a similar situation in the summer as i'm going to a festival and not sure about food, wondering if to just lay off them?

    i guess you just have to ask yourself, would you want the added pressure of feeling poorly when you have enough on/

    Why not lay off them but restrict yourself on the treats and fill up on fruit and veg?

    Good luck

    Hi Wiggs,

    When my daughter was in hospital last year i continued to take blueys as i had a choice of a healthy menu in hospital cafe. I aslo took a few bottles of flavored water with me to stop me drinking tea and coke,and i took plenty of fruit to save on expense.

    I still managed to lose weight.

    Love Jo xx

    you can always take some stuff with you like packets of ryvitas and raisins and cereal bars etc? flavoured water is good but im still too addicted to black coffee and diet coke lol

    if its for a few days and you stop taking them I am sure you will be fine. I did the same this week, but bear in mind your body might start getting a few side affects again when you take them !!!
