I would love to have some support tho as I want to lose about 4 stone all in all and am going on Holiday in September....so would like to lose some by then....any ideas at how much could be lost if i have 30g fat each day and stay below 1500 cals???? Will be starting Tabs on Monday once i get a new prescription as I gave the pills back to Dr in June....doh!!!!

Thanks for reading.

    Hi Lesley

    Firstly, sorry to hear of your loss, i do hope you are ok. Could it have been anything to do with the tabs ?

    I have lost a stone and have been on them for seven weeks now. Am getting on pretty well and have 30 sometimes 35 grams of fat a day and approx 1500 calories a day. I count most things but am not really really strict cos that just does my head in after having been trying to loose weight on and off for about 23 years out of my 37 !!!!! sad

    I have no bad side effects providing i never have more than 15g of fat max at one meal.

    Hope that helps and very best of luck

    Hi, know what you are going through. I miscarried out second child and it is quite devestating. I am going on holiday tomorrow so decided to stop the tablets last night. Today I have eated what I want no matter what, so have been quite naughty. Kept a diary though out of habit. Comes to 1450 cals and 30g of fat. To think I have been so good for so long. The nurse suggested best not to take tabs whilst away in case of accidents as you cannot guarantee how the resturants have cooked your meal. She did suggest things to eat though. So thought it is only for 2 weeks a year so may as well enjoy it, will certainly be back on them when I return.

    Thanks for your replies. Have a great Holiday Mandy!!!

    Went to my GP today to get my perscription and did not see the GP i saw last time and he has given me Reductil (sibutramine) as says that this should work for me.

    Anyone got any ideas....not happy tho he wants me to do these for 3 months given me a month supply and then got to go back!!!!

    Help,......now Im lost.... :?
