    I started yesterday and after reading the information i think you do not take a tablet if the meal is meat free,

    maybe you can help me, i was not given a diet to follow so not sure how much fat per meal i should be

    eating, i have not experianced the oil filled poo that a lot of people have told me i would, maybe it's just early days, good luck

    I was told not to take a pill if your meal is fat-free, but except for snacking on raw veggies, most meals will contain some fat.

    If you eat a fat free meal or skip a meal you dont need to take a tablet but as above, most meals contain some form of fat.
