Hi just started to take Orlistat & have been shopping to stock up on things I can  eat with under 15g of fat per meal. Are fruit & veg (apart from potatoes) free food to eat as snacks?

    Hi, most fruit and veg is ok, just remember that the tablets can't tell the difference from good fat and bad fat so things like avocados and coconut are not so good. I loved oily fish but that is also a no no.

    Thank you Adam it's all so new to me but I think I'm slowly getting the hang of things.

    found this forum very useful so far.

      These tablets do work but they are not a miracle drug you have to work with them. I've been on them now for 11 weeks and have lost nearly five and a half stones. Good luck!

      Wow Adam that's a great weight loss my Doctor has recommended me to lose about 2 & half stone so I think it will be a slow process.

      I spent ages in Tescos reading all the labels today & hope I've brought the right things. I'm wondering about lunches for work too.
