I had a late lunch around 1pm and no breakfast - my lunch was a costa panini and a skinny hot chocolate (total 10 fat) and I took a tablet. Just having dinner now - WW Mac and cheese 10.5g fat and have taken a tablet.

How long before you can take another tablet? I'd like a cookie or two as a treat (within the 15g fat per meal) so Id treat it as a meal... But just unsure of how long you have to leave between tablets?

    U are meant to take 3 breakfast lunch n dinner. Don't take them with snacks or if u have a salad as no point if no fat.

    Are u having everything u eat under 5g of fat per 100g as I don't think a cookie will be under 5g?! Even if yr having below 15g per meal it has to be below 5g else you will have accidents. 💩💩💩

    A foxes cooking is 25g per 100g that's what u need to look at. Even tho they are 5g each it's not that fat u need to be looking at.

    If u eat over 5g of fat per 100g the tablet stops the fat absorbing into your body and u poo it out! Or if u eat a way over orange oil will just run out of you! Believe me it's happened to me!

      I've had a chocolate bar like a club within 15g of fat alongside a meal and had no accidents or anything!

      A club bar is 26g of fat per 100g 😳

      Far to high in fat. Once you have been on tablets 3/4 weeks u won't get away with eating one of those!!

      U speak to anyone on here who's been on them a while. I got a sheet from my gp telling me all the info.

      Do some research as u will have accidents and it's really not nice!!

      U need to be on a VERY low fat diet.

      It's hard as no treats really! I use to have jelly sweets or marshmallows on a sat night. But choc and biscuits are defo no no. Once they are fully in yr system u can't let anything bad pass your lips. I lost 4 stone In 4 months but lived on fish and veg, grilled chic salad , cous cous , pasta, lots of fruit! I had a slip and had a packet of crisp! Omg I spent a day on the loo and ruined god knows how many pairs of knickers! U really have to read the back of every label and nothing over 5g per 100g. Good luck

      I'm pescetarian so only eat fish not meat and haven't been able to eat fish since I started, I've found its really fatty!

      Can I ask why it's 5g per 100g? if you're eating, say, 10g of something and it's 26g per 100g why does it matter the figures in 100g if you stick to below 15g?

      I hope that makes sense!

      If you have a club for eg which is 26g per 100g your tablets will stop 21g begging absorbed so that's when accidents happen. If u eat choc and biscuits it's not healthy and high in fat. You will have accidents if u don't follow the rules once they are fully in yr system. Don't matter if u don't eat meat just choose healthy options.

      If u work out your fats propa you will prob realise you're having over your allowance.

    I've been following what Fairy explained to me (5 per 100g) and it does seem to be working.

    I've noticed I automatically have to steer to less fun treats which obviously will be a huge effect on weight loss because fat and calories seem to go hand in hand. Also, don't fancy destroying any knickers lol
