New to Oristat - also doing slimming world

Posted , 4 users are following.

GP prescribed me a couple of days ago, have 7-8 stone to loose, also recommended slimming world alongside. Going to start the slimming world first as GP warned me about starting tablets with lots of fat in my system.

I am going to avoid using cheese, chocolate, crisps as my syns, have also searched and people seem to say salmon & eggs(which are free on slimming world)

If anyone else is sucessfully doing alongside slimming world  would love some support.

also does anyone have a typical orlistat food list or food diary or any Orlistat tips for new starters?

      Thanks Karen, had a look at the options but the fat was something like 6.9 per 100gram, have you tried options.

      I seem fine with eggs and everything else, i tend to do sw 1st and then look at fat content 2nd to see if i can have it.
