    Hi, I'm on metformin. My diabetic nurse, who also started me on Orlistat, says to make sure you have plenty of carbs to keep your sugar level up. She also suggests going vegetarian, but not into that I'm sorry to say. I always have supper, about 9pm, usually cereal and milk.

    My day consists of

    Breakfast - porridge oats mixed with mullerlight yoghurt and loads of fruit.

    Mid morning - Alpen bar, or fruit.

    Lunch - either soup and roll, or sandwich, no marg I use pickle, low fat ham and salad followed by an apple

    Tea - meat and veg and an apple

    Supper - cereal and milk

    Drink plenty, I usually have water or low fat squash and the odd green tea.

    I have lost 18 lbs since beginning of August.

    Good luck and let us know how you get on.

    Hi I've been on insulin for several years now and despite trying to diet my weight just kept going up and up. My dietician suggested that I change from humalog 25 mix twice a day onto the basal bolus multiple dose, I was cynical but it's been miraculous. I find it so much easier to stick to a diet, my blood glucose levels are the best they've ever been and I've lost two stone! I know it won't be right for everyone but it's worth asking your consultant about as changing insulins has made a big difference to my appetite.
