    Hi Dolphin500,

    I started 6 days ago & having weighed this morning I have lost 6lbs!

    I have to go to my GP at the end of the month too & I'm hoping to have lost 1st maybe more by then.

    Have you read much about taking it & the side effects? I ate a bit of Xmas food at the weekend that was leftover & the effects yesterday & today aren't great meaning it's def going to put me off doing it again lol which is why I wanted them being honest.

      Hi, I've mainly been having porridge or shredded wheat both with skimmed milk & frozen berries for breakfast. Lunch has been a small bread roll with ham or beef slices (been eating them open/in 2 halves so it feels like I have more!) with cucumber, carrot & tomatoes, small pot of fat free Greek yoghurt & fruit. So far for dinner I-ve just made sure I've had half a plate of salad (lettuce, cucumber, tomato, radish, beetroot,carrot & sweetcorn) or veg & something like turkey Bolognese, fish or chicken. If you've ever done slimming world then you'll be familiar with speed fruit & veg & the premise of the plan which is what my GP agreed was a good plan to follow whilst taking orlistat
