    Hi @Turvell

    it;s 5g per 100 15g per meal no more than 45g a day

    Almonds are too high in fat for the tablets the chicken must be breast not thigh as it is lower in fat.

    How long have you been on the tablets? if you have no orange oil or a tummy bug then your eating right however if you have only started them then ate the alomds they take up to 72 hours to come out.

    If you look at my profile i have posted lots of helpful advice/tips on the tablets as they ahve really worked for me if you need anymore help etc please post back

    also make sure your drinking lots and lots of water every day

    SORRY just re read your post you have just started them you will get the side effects from the almonds

      They will work you just have to eat right one of the best things i have ever done in a couple of weeks it will be like second nature looking at packets etc and you will have lost weight by then!

      Make sure you will be near a toilet and wear a pad because of the Almonds Also drink a lot of water to fluh them out the side effects can take up to 72 hours to come out it depends on how quick food goes through your system some people are quicker than others.x

      I only have about 6 almonds but I can just not have them and just have berries and low fat yogurt instead. So why is it better to take these than just go on a low fat diet ?

      For every pound you lose on a low fat diet you lose 3lb more on top of that with the tablets. The tablets do not understand the difference between 'good' and 'bad' fats even though nuts are good for you in small amounts the tablets will just see it as bad fat and give you the side effects. So yes best to stick to the yogurt and berries or have something else with it to make it more filling. I don't know per 100g what the almonds are but they are more than the 5g as i remember looking at other nuts at the start and seeing how high in fat they were.

      Also the tablets stop people eating the wrong things - they help keep you on the straight and narrow and i know when i come off them very soon i will continue to eat in the same way

      Hi britney,

      I've been on orlistat since the end of March and at my last weigh in on Friday I've lost 5st 12lb which I am really pleased with. Yesterday I was at a friends and decided I would have a treat and had a chicken kebab from a takeaway, my first in 3 months! It was amazing... Enjoyed it so much more than I use to. Roll on my next treat in another 3 months lol

      Hi Adam WELL DONE YOU! [cheesygrin ... Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.]

      Hope you enjoyed your treat i think i waited about 6-9 months before i did that but i would always say oh next weigh in i will but never did. For me personally when i did have a treat (1 within the rules) such as a cake i used to think god i actually dont miss eating that stuff but you do totally appreciate it aswell i mean it's nice to have it but knowing you have the will power to stop at one then continue with the tablets and healhly eating. 

      I have a recipe for chicken doner which comes under the 5g rule someone asked on here yesterday for recipes so i might just add that to the list.

      Well done again and 3 months will be up before you know it

      btw your only 2lb off 6 stone you should reward yourself with something big! x

      I think you can post pics theres an upload image button. I think everybody literally is different i mean i have seen articles where women say they are 20+ stone and say they wear a size 20-22 how is that possible? i was 19 stone and a 24 and some people who are heavier than what i was look smaller than i did at that size, even now at a 12-14 i look totally different to my sister who was a 12. Even if you lose a few pounds you will still get the tablets i have heard of people not losing anything in the start and still getting another box x
