Hi everyone,

I initially lost 2 stone on orlistat but now my weight is not moving! I still want to lose another 2 stone. Can anyone help??

Also can anyone give me the phone number for the Map support, i have lost the leaflet in my box.

Thanks

    I can do the easy bit:

    0800 731 7138

    and the e-address is support@mapassist.co.uk

    The hard bit? No clever words - sorry - but surely scrupulously writing down every mouthful, sticking to less than 1500 cals and 25-30 g of fat a day and 3 or 4 sweaty exercise sessions a week has to work in the end, even if you have to trudge through a plateau. Those are the rules of the biology.

    I am hugely sympathetic and really feel your frustration. I am sure I am approaching my own plateau soon and will be trudging across with you. We have to hang on to the facts through - this is not magic or a mean set of rules designed to trip us up but a simple equation of what goes in minus what goes out and what get used up has to equal a loss eventually as long as we keep our metabolism bouyant.

    Bloody hard work at times though isn't it!

    Hi RR,

    I think our message went to the moderator because of the phone number and web address and not the swearing.

    Swear all you like it's good for you :lol:

    What is it about the 2 stn point? I am also on a plateau and stuck.

    I am being very good - just had a chocolate muller lite to satisfy my sin cravings.

    OK, I could up the exercise (as i do noe that won't be difficult) but it is just finding time in the day and the impetus to do it.

    Keep it up folks. We will succeed.

    I dunno!! i'm going to aerobics 3 times a week! i'm being super good too!

    I'm thinking i'm not eating enough fat so gonna try and up it a bit, but if i do that the calories go up too!

    It seemed so easy before!

    Do we need to be concentrating on calories as well as fat or just fat??

    confused.com!!!! :?

    If you put the fat up you have to try to keep inside the same calories, not just eat extra. It takes a bit more fiddling about until you get used to it, but it is the way MAP recommend we do it whilst on this drug.

    kaz - go buy yourself a Collins Calorie Counter - that's a paperback book - it gives the calories in lots of foods and also gives the fat content. Well worth £5.99. You will also get the values in many branded foods which should be helpful.

    Your question is such a big one to answer here. Might help you to read a slimming magazine of some sort if you have no idea what it's all about.
