Set back on starting pills

Posted , 6 users are following.

Right so I was ment to start pills on monday but I didn't get to doctors to collect pills then yesterday I was out all day. But I picked up pills today ready to start tomorrow. Iv also just been food shopping it took forever checking the labels but I did it ☺ I struggled in the meat section so only came away with some prawns and chicken can anyone give me some quick food ideas as I think I'm going to struggle with nice tasting food as I fear it will all taste bland x

    Is it your first time on the pills? you could do a stir fry or grill the chicken and make some wedges (in the oven) or a chicken /prawn salad. what sort of foods do you like?

    in such matters and especially to all those that are new to Orilstat.

    Britney has some nice tasty ideas for things to eat, food does not have to be bland at all.

    In the beginning it is a pain having to read all the food labels, but it will become second nature after a wee while.

    I brought loads of fruit and salad stuff. I also brought the muller light smooth toffee and vanilla yogurts as I love them. How soon after taking the first pill will you get side affects? Xx

      Natalie you WONT get any side effects if you eat right. How long ago is it since you ate fattening food? if it was in the last 2 days i would eat as though you are on the tablets then take your first one in 48 hours. If you eat right you won't see anything apart from weight loss
