      I purchased online as well

      I used to take one proper meal before & either take light breakfast or light lunch

      But never used to make proper choice

      I used to eat rubbish snacks when felt hungry

      I started orlistat on 2nd April

      But started having breakfast lunch & dinner

      Coz if u will take three meals then it will increase ur metabolism & u will not snack at all

      I don't snack now

      If hungry in the evening I take fruit or healthy option

      I have lost so far 2.8 kg in a week

      & I do evening walks after dinner

      I don't really eat snacks anyway, so I will take your advice and have 3 meals a day...I use my cross trainer for 20 minutes a day...should increase to 30?

      And hopefully I see some results you've lost a lot in a week

    Definitely 3 meals a day! If you eat too little your body slows metabolism because it doesn't know when its next meal is smile just make sure you don't go over 15g of fat per meal and under 5g fat per 100g and you'll be fine smile always best to exercise as well!

    hi!

    I hope you are getting on with orlistat ok.

    I have just recieved my orlistat in the post and have been reading lots online before I start...I have also been searching tesco and other shops for meals which I will be able to eat. Could you let me know the sort of meals you have been having? I was thinking of the meal plan below:

    Breakfast

    banana

    toast (light spread)

    lunch:

    healthy living sandwhich from tesco/ sainsburys/marks and spencer (less than 5g fat)

    dinner:

    healhty living tesco ready meal less than 5g fat per 100g maximum 15g per meal

    also a snack maybe 0% fat total yourgut? does this sound right? I am terrified of getting it wrong.............

    hope your first week has been ok

    xxxxxxx
