Any advice welcome, I have just been prescribed Orlistat and am looking into low fat foods, it's harder than I thought.  What are the foods I should avoid as I really don't want side effects!  Please help.. Many Thanks biggrin

    Hey Hun I've been on them a week now, sticking to it and I've had no side effects(touch wood) stay away from fried food, cheese etc. I've been eating lots of chicken, veg, fruit, low fat yogurt, pasta, rice and if I have a major sweet craving I have an ice lolly...it's pretty much water and juice (check the labels though) good luck xx
