5g of Fat Rule - Confused


Full Member
Hi all,
I'm a bit confused with the fat rule!
I was going to have a slim fast shake for breakfast and it states 100g has 8.8g of fat which is obviously over the 5g of fat rule but the whole shake has 3.3g of fat so this is obviously within the 15g per meal rule.
Sorry if this question seems silly. I'm just really confused.

Not such a fat kat now :)
No it's out of the rules . It's because portion sizes vary so much depending on what you are eating that the standard to measure against is the 100g one.

I know people on here use slimfast but maybe s different flavour, I'm sure one if them will help you.

Hey Davey, I have slim fast for brekkie all the time with my xenical tablets and it doesn't seem to had any side effects with me :)

As Kat says put the 5g/100g rule first but don't be afraid to experiment.

I'm very strict on the 5g/100g rule which works for me but others are more flexible or have nuts at a different time to their Xen - it's finding the balance that works for you. Once you find your Tango threshold it will help set your boundaries. Sammy found he could eat almost anything and just 'tooted' a bit more.
