Hi - another newbie here! I was taking Xenical for a few weeks before my recent holiday but I really wasn't doing it properly and had some horrendous episodes in the loo!! :oops: I'm back home now and ready to give it another go. Reading these posts has really inspired me!! I have one main problem (I'm sure lots of you will sympathise) - I have a skinny husband who needs to eat a lot, a fussy teenage daughter and a 9 year old son who have both (luckily) inherited my husband's skinny genes. I am fed up with cooking two or three different things for dinner!! :roll: I'm off now to search for recipes that might please everyone. xx

    Yes, know how you feel...I have a husband who loves his meat, gravy and all the things I shouldn't be eating....so sometimes there are two pans on the stove...mine dry fry in non stick and another with olive oil and his stuff. Generally though he eats what I eat but occasionally I give him his favourite foods - I keep reminding him of the fat content....honestly he just looks at me blankly...the bottom line is that it is worth the extra effort even if you have to cook something for them and you separately....someone will give you some ideas here I'm sure.

    Best wishes and keep going on the straight and narrow as much as possible.

    Try Sainsbury's good for you beef steaks, beef mince and pork medallions only between 2 and 4 grams of fat per 100g

    Sainsbury's do low fat quarter pounders. Well lower than the usual. You could do burgers, lower fat chips and salad. But only have 3-4 chips yourself.

    There are some good ready meals about (bloody hell i sound like a stuck record) you could just shove in the oven for you while you cook for your family.

    Quorn mince is quite good - although i always add an oxo cube to give it more flavour - you could use that to make low fat cottage pie, chilli, spag bol.

    Doesn't your husband cook? What about teenager? And 9 isn't too young to start cooking.

    Roosters chips are less than 2g per 100g of fat. 100g is quite a few, i weigh mine to be sure, and the kids won't have any others.
