    You are allowed 15g a meal total 45g 

    But the golden rule is don't eat anything over 5g of fat per 100g so read every packet!! And don't go over 15g of fat per meal. Good luck smile

    Hiya, I started the tablets last Sunday 

    I have been on these tablets before tho about 8 years ago and lost 5 stone ,

    This last week iv been keeping to about 5g maybe a little bit more per meal , because I don't want the dreaded orange oil rolleyes 

    Iv lost 3 lb upto now , but aiming to exercise next week because I know it really does increase the weightloss  

    Also need to start drinking more too as it helps kerb the appetite 

    Good luck smile

      Well for breakfast iv been having crunchy nut cornflakes with banana 

      Dinner -ham salad sandwich or chicken with a light spreading of mayo or a cup shot from B&M or aldi

      Tea- Uncle Benns sweet and sour pot there in Morrisons about 99p at the min and I just add extra microwaveable packet  rice to fill me up 

      Also aldi tomato and herb pasta with salad 

      Then fruit to snack on or you can have yoghurt 

      I just make sure it's 5g per 100

      I sometimes pick on sweet pickled onions 


      Rice pudding (low fat of course )

      You just have to read the labels on everything smile

      I'm not counting calories just sticking to the 5g fat per 100 rule ha 

      Oh iv had the embarrassing oily moment too ,like you mine wasn't in public 😂

      I also did slimming world but just couldn't get my head around it 😕

      I'd had a consultation for a Gastric Sleeve but it just scares me so much and as daft as it seems it felt sorry for my stomach 😁 so I backed out and thought right I'm going to try these tablets again , because they do work if you stick to it 

      I'm glad iv found this group too I'm new to it , 

      And it's great to get support from people in the same boat 😊
