    Hiya - just make sure anything you eat is under 5g of fat per 100g and no more than 15g of fat per meal. That is the basis. Easy to keep track on my fitness pal! No cheese, cakes or anything like that, and yes drinks do count! Good luck xx

    Hi emma yes kat is so right you must stick to 5gms per 100gns of fat per item if you stick to this you will be fine x any foods with this amount is ok if you fancy sweet snacks try asda caramel rice cakes if you fancy cheese spread use laughing cow extra light cheese portions 20cals and ryvita crispbreads there only 19 calories each all the fat in these is really low theres lots of muller deserts you can have thats fat free and 99 cals try the cappuccino with chocolate sprinkles very nice lol fat free!! Instead of chips home made low fat ones try sweet potatoe chips asda have them all ready cut just to go in the over dolmio low fat sauce is nice for bolognaise try quorn mince for a change its quite nice fill it with mushrooms and chopped peppers and wholemeal pasta once its made you can freeze it for another night ive been using quirn sausages too they quite nice as well theres lots of things you can eat its just getting in the routine of looking out for the right foods to cook good luck keep intouch with your progress xxx
