Hi all,

Well this time last year I started orlistat and I lost 2 stone in 4 months!

Unfortunately due to issues in my personal life I then stopped taking the tablets. I have put on a stone and a half of the 2 that I lost! Gutted!

The thing is I can't remember any of what I used to eat so I'm back to square 1!

Any advice would be gratefully appreciated. I remember that we're meant to eat foods with less than 5 grams of fat per 100, but I haven't seen a porridge with less than 5. Has anyone else?

Sorry if this is not easy to read but I'm doing it on my blackberry.

    Dont worry about putting on that stone and a half - dont be too hard on yourself. Life is really tough sometimes and you really have to cut yourself some slack - some people do drugs or alcohol to escape but you have put on a bit of weight which you will take off again now you are back on track. As a general rule you are supposed to stick to 5 grams or under per 100 grams of fat but if you like porridge I would have it a couple of times a week mixing it with water. I wouldnt get too caught up in fastidiously counting fat grams as long as you eat good wholesome food. Try simple breakfasts such as weetabix and banana with skimmed milk, poached egg on wholemeal toast with a tablespoon of baked beans (very filling). Baked potatoes filled with beans, or tuna and low fat mayo is also tasty and filling. If you like soup, I have some good recipies for really healthy, tasty homemade soups which are very filling and good for you. Let me know if you want them - they are dead easy to make and much nicer than tinned.

    Best wishes for your future successful weight loss!
