Just started today as I was prescribed medication yesterday.
However, I'm a little lost. My GP was very 'whatever' so I don't have any guidelines other than lose 1stone within 12 weeks. I must have been in and out within 4 minutes
I asked if all fats are equal to Orlistat (i.e. oily fish/avocado Vs. Fatty meat) so I should reduce healthy fats too but my doc just told me "they aren't that fatty anyway".
Also I have no idea how much fat I can have, if any? What is suitable?
My leaflet he gave me and the insert in the box advise me to follow my GP diet guidelines. I have lactose and wheat allergy so I'm concerned I'm going to be losing a variety of vitamins and energy by just cutting out anything I don't understand.
I'm sorry if this has been answered already.
