Hello everyone

I have just come across this page and thought I would ask for some advice! I have just been prescribed tablet and starting them 2moro.

I was thinking of following WW diet along with the tablet.

Can anyone tell me if this helps? and are there any foods which I defo need to avoid??? I have read that eggs are particularly bad!?!

Thanks and I would appreciate any help :D

    Hi Hazel,

    U could try the British Heart Foundation Booklet \"So You Want To Lose Weight For Good\" You'll find it on their website. I highly recommend it as it's really simple to follow and allows you to eat anything, so long as it's in moderation :!: That said, you will have to tweek it a bit to make it fit with the Orlistat.

    Give it a go! After all you've got nothing to lose but weight :!:

    Good Luck and let us know how u get on.

    TTFN Kal :wink:

    Hi ther eand welcome

    I agree with Kal the BHF booklet is super - really helpful advice especially about portion sizes

    As for prawn cocktail as long as you check the fat content and have it with plain salad not avocado (big mistake - the voice of experience here!) you should be OK. I really hate the lower fat one so have a small ammount of regular with salad and don't tend to react I have about 1/3 of a pot so the treat lasts for lunch about 3 days!

    Good luck

    Hi & welcome,

    I bring a snack bag to work - chopped carrots and celery or whatever you are into that's helathly that you can munch on through the morning.

    Also save a banana for mid morning, always have breakfast - usually porridge as it long lasting in the stomach.

    Good luck
